And I Made Sure to Hold Your Head Sideways, a unique and touching interactive narrative made for the Flat Game Annual Jam, tells a beautiful story of friendship and intoxication on New Years Eve.
And I Made Sure to Hold Your Head Sideways gives you each section of its heartfelt story in scrambled pictures on a storyboard. You use your arrow keys to shift around the picture, trying to discover how the lines fit together to form the picture and show the words that complete it, divulging more of the narrative and moving you on to the next section.
The narrative involves you recounting your memories of a night out with your friend, during which your friend partied a little to much. A lot happens in this night – but the whole time you were by your friends side, where you needed to be (and you made sure to hold their head sideways).
It’s a beautiful little game, that feels like you’re re-assembling the memories in someones head, uncluttering the fog after a hard night out. A cleverly crafted piece of interactive storytelling with great audio/visual design and lots of nice little touches that really draw you into the narrative. A storyboard well worth unscrambling.
