Don't Move is an experimental puzzle platformer with a focus on ludonarrative dissonance and player investment manipulation. Don't Move starts simply: move left or right. But as you try -- and as you fail -- to move, you unlock more of the game's mechanisms. With each new element comes new challenges and more rewards! Available for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.

As a statement I feel like this game will go over a lot of heads. However I appreciate you making it in spite of def ears. I wish i was the type of gamer who gets a dopamine release on pointless stats and achievements, because I'd be much more entertained by today's drivel.

Have a absolutely fantastic day.

As a very brief update on the game, due to some technical issues I've had to disable dynamic lighting, so the game will look slightly different than the images posted to date. I hope to have some updated images and information soon. Thanks!

I don't think that this game deserves the negative reviews it has been receiving, but it does prove that this game certainly is an acquired taste. Don't Move is a game about progression, but there are no real objectives, tasks, storylines or anything similar because it just isn't that kind of game. While it may come off as too simple and repetitive (which it very well is) at first, it has a compelling ability to keep pulling you back in to see what happens after you have reached the next stage of…

There is no point in it at all. Maybe only interesting as an experiment.
