BE-a-St

Have you ever wondered what it is like to 'be' another creature? To see from their eyes, to move their body, to perceive the world like they do?
It's a fascinating concept to me, as is the idea of reincarnation, which suggests that you could actually 'be' other creatures after you die. This game explores those concepts.
Basically, gameplay would involve taking control of one creature and exploring the environment using its various skills; some could fly, others could swim, or dig, or move rocks, or climb, or even talk or wield equipment. But this creature would have limited HP and a lifespan, and once your health was down (there'd be a lot of predators) or your time was up, you'd die and go to 'Heaven'.
Once here, you'd find your way to the Afterlife blocked by a gate which you're told won't open for you unless you are a 'Saint'; a title earned only by those who have sufficient life experience.
So you need to go back down to the physical world, to reincarnate in a new life, but the thing is, you can incarnate as any other lifeform that you'd 'unlocked' and the gameplay would be different for each one. You'd solve environmental puzzles by incarnating as many different lifeforms.
The game wouldn't focus on difficulty like Raider, but ambience and the thrill of exploration. The game would be low on text or explicit GUI features, to hopefully give the sensation of playing as a mindless animal.
I intend to create a simplified version of this with limited forms and levels, which I'll release, and if it's popular, I could do a more in-depth sequel.

This is a very interesting concept to me. If you manage it, I'll probably play it obsessively. I hope you go for this.

The idea for the game is interesting, but the fact of the matter is that would be nearly impossible to realize.

Sadly, there is nothing on the bottom of the page to tell me when this will be finished! I am sad.

The thing that was at the bottom of the page said this:Miasmon- Part I, Miasmon- Part II, Miasmon- Part III, Simple RPG Engine, MARDEK IV, Beast Signer, then, finally, BE-a-St. If you are confused or interested in any manner, look at the bottom of ∞ this page. ∞

No, he won't go out of his way to inform other members of the site about when this game is finished through PMs. He will make a blog post.
