Nice game, it did scare me I will say that (Game Starts at 4:05)

Very wonderfully done I love the simplistic yet futuristic design I highly recommend

Man this was awesome!

I was actually more interested in it than disturbed until the load scream!

But great game peep!

excellent body horror!

I think the creator may have taken DMT before. Just a guess. ;)

LOVED this game. The universe you're able to create in such a small amount of time is incredible. I played this for my Bloodcurdling Barrage in which I do 31 games total and post a new video every day of October. I can't wait for whatever your next project will be.

Don't play before, during, or after dinner.

game sucked. It was't even my body

I love this game. The body horror is memorable and I've yet to play a game that has stuck with me like this one has. Something about how clinical and matter-of-fact as it was made it even more unsettling in such a unique way. Amazing stuff.

(+1)

This game is shocking and disturbing in a amazing way. I love the idea and the play style of this game. It really helps make the game memorable I recommend everyone play this game. 

(+1)

a short and chilling experience. i was pleasantly shocked by the reference to deleuze/guittari's work and what it meant for this work. looking forward to whatever you make next!

(+1)

Woah. Just woah. This game was so scary to me. The story, art style and direction were spot on. I cannot wait to see what else you come up with. Thanks for a wonderful game! Here's my play through!

that was so uncomfortable and terrifying. best horror game I've played in a while.

(+5)

Well, that was creepy as fuck. Incredible.

(+4)

Absolutely disturbing! Short but so sweet. I've quickly become a fan of yours and I cannot wait to see more!

This was as fantastic as it gets for short indie horror! Incredible atmospher and style. I was engadged from start to finish.

I really enjoyed this! I loved that there were actual scientific concepts being used as the basis for this theoretical nightmare...for example, explaining how you can communicate with the patient by referencing Broca's area (the speech center of the brain) being hooked up to the machine. The pacing, with the hints toward weirdness/wrongness of the situtation amping up over time, was also masterful. 

Discover My Body reminds me of a classic scary campfire tale combined with a retro yet novel form of gameplay (-the scanning interface with different bodily systems and hot spots to click for dialogue). Overall this is a very clean, sharp and unique philosophical horror game. 

I would love to see an expanded version of the game, but if not, I look forward to seeing your future projects in general! And if you do have past games on itch.io, well I'm about to play them when I go to your dev page after posting this comment! :)

Edit: Just realized I had played Water Womb World by you a few days before this game- I knew Yames sounded familiar. Haha, anyway, loving your stuff.

I loved the game, its very unique, and its really fuckin awsome
good job dude!

Finally able to give it a go 

(+4)

ngl this game made me feel extremely disturbed.great job.

(+4)

the implications of the procedure are incredibly disturbing. you get just enough information to know something is very very wrong. i love horror games that keep me unsettled and thinking about them for days afterwards and this is exactly that type of game. looking forward to the sequel!

(+1)

pretty interesting! :))

(+1)

Honestly an amazing game with great horror aspects, jumpscares were not necessary to make it scary, can't wait for discover our bodies Yames keep it up!

(+2)

looking forward to when the next game disgusts me /just right/.

Hey, just wanted to say that my partner and I love and appreciate your content, we usually watch your playthroughs to wind down at night (I think your yt channel helps us sleep due to the combination of the artistic visuals of the indie games you typically choose to showcase, plus your calming-voiced commentary)

(+2)

Plays. Iwan, plays - accidental professional bedtime story reader.

Hey, thanks for sharing! ^^

Exactly lol. Maybe you should add asmr tags to some of your more soft spoken videos, I bet it would attract some insomniac viewers like me. :P

5/5

DISCOVER MY BODY is an original and disturbing horror game that arguably counts as social commentary. 

(+2)

fun, uncomfortable and unique game, loved it!

A great and very disturbing little game.

(+4)

What engine did you use to make this?

(+2)

Cool horror game. Unsettling.

(+2)

Beautiful little piece that makes the most of its time and space. Tension and atmosphere is phenomenal, but the sound design really pulls this one all together. 

(+2)

This game has BY FAR been the BEST part of this video lol.... I genuinely felt discomforted when playing and the visuals... the sounds... and the music behind it DID NOT HELP! XD

I REALLY look forward to what you create in the future! :D

(Thumbnail is to represent the vibe of this game lol)

I had a fun time with this game! That's for sure.

Anyway. Outstanding game, I saw AlphaBetaGamer fire it up and new I had to stop and play it myself instead. Man, I could hardly sleep afterwards! Looking forward to any potential new installments. Seriously creative work you've made here!

This is a very unique game. It is pretty short, but i had a lot of fun playing. The horror aspect of the game was terrifying. its a quick game for burning time. overall, pretty good.
