About

Video above

The Mind Hero is to be something completely new. In addition to being a puzzle/platform/dating sim in which you go into the minds of six girls and two adults to save them, you'll also learn important psychological concepts in the background of the story as you do, and these can be taken away from the game and applied to real life.

Colven, 17, visits the lab where his mother and grandfather work, knowing his mother has gone unconscious after taking an experimental antidepressant. As it turns out, it was actually suppressing negative feelings and making them more powerful, and in addiition to putting her and the other six girls who took it into a coma, there is a side effect that Colven can enter their minds simply by laying near them and focusing.

He enters the mind of his mother, who is torn with grief about-- among other things-- the effect the antidepressant had on the other six girls. So to help free her from grief, Colven must go into their minds first to save all of them, which can be done in any order. He'll learn important things about psychology, have some fun, meet some danger, and gain some affection along the way.

Some of the psychological concepts-- i.e. how your personality can be altered by traumas that occur during specific stages of life, as first presented by the late famous psychoanalyst Erik Erikson-- are outlined within the video, while more will be presented within the game. You might be surprised after learning them all how they apply to you and those around you, and how helpful this knowledge might be to your life. And that's after having gotten more than your money's worth from simply enjoying the game.

    All of the above, plus: You're guaranteed a personal discussion with the developer, Josh "Psycrow" Cronkhite. It can be about anything, but this is largely geared towards people interested in the psychological aspects behind the game and how they might apply to you directly, i.e. "Do I fit in one of those categories?

  10. Select this reward

    Pledge US$ 900 or more About US$ 900

    All of the above, plus: Something (inanimate) will briefly appear or be mentioned in the game specifically because you wanted it to be. This is the most open-ended reward. There's no real inventory or clothing system, but maybe you like stuffed cows and want to see one sitting around during a scene in the lab, or there could be a picture of you sitting around that in some way that fits the visual style of the game. Maybe you really like cheese puffs and want it written in that Dr. Mark is a cheese puff addict, or maybe you've got a specific catchphrase or one-liner you'd like to see Nina say. Basically a one-time appearance of something visual, words or otherwise. Obviously not just anything goes, so if you're about to do this and are unsure if what you have in mind will be OK, feel free to check in advance. If you prefer, email is linked on website, themindhero.com.
