Inherit telekinetic super power and crush your enemies
Throw Trucks With Your Mind is a video game that uses NeuroSky's Mindwave headset to give you telekinetic super-powers controlled with your thoughts. In this game, you will crush your enemies by throwing trucks at them with your mind! This game uses Unreal Engine 3 to deliver a modern gaming experience with mind-blowing, innovative gameplay.
The game uses standard first-person shooter controls, where you move around with WASD, aim with the mouse, change your powers with 1-8 or the mouse wheel, jump with the space bar, and turn your power on with the left mouse button. This is all completely configurable from the settings screen. The blue bar is how calm you are and the red bar is how focused you are. This is read from your brain with the NeuroSky MindWave headset. These values control how strong your powers are. Blue powers are fueled by calm. Red powers are fueled by focus. The act of focusing is fundamentally about giving all of your attention to one thing and blocking out all distractions. The act of being calm is blocking out all stressors and relaxing. Your powers will not work directly on other players, so you have to find ways to throw things into them.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the improved Bluetooth connectivity not all apps that were available for the former MindWave Mobile version are compatible with the MWM+ version only on iOS. You can find a regularly updated list for iOS under the section Download. There are no changes regarding the Android Apps. All Android Apps work with the former and new MWM+ version. Try it! You will be surprised how little time and financial investment is required to achieve the first improvements of your mental abilities.
How it works
The game works by doing a bunch of crazy math on your brainwaves to determine how calm and focused you are. These two conditions act as the scalars on your psychic powers. Want to throw a truck into that pompous jerk strafing around in front of you? Just focus on it. The more focused you are, the harder you fling the truck and the more smushy he ends up.
In basic terms, games like this are about simple wish fulfillment: remember growing up when you really wanted psychic powers? Maybe you just wished you could make your sister explode after she trashed your Star Wars figurines or maybe you really admired comic book heroes like Professor X or maybe you were way too into Carrie-whatever your reasons, we've all imagined ourselves like this at one time or another.
Videogames up until this point have played lip service to these power fantasies with all kinds of psychic mayhem. But there's always been a missing element. After all, holding B isn't really the same thing as thinking really hard about something. Essentially, no game has ever demanded your mind's direct participation to create the psychic powers occurring on screen. Until this.
We want to be clear that at no point will this game take itself too seriously. The game will be silly, but still competitive. The art style of the game will reflect that. Unless someone backs at the REALITY BENDER reward tier and demands it, there will be no angry space marines in power armor. Here is some concept art for playable characters:
8 unique ways to harness the power of your mind
5 playable characters, each with a colorful and dynamic style
5 exciting multiplayer game modes
3 intense levels
Training scenarios to teach you everything you need to know about the game
The opportunity to crush your foes with your mind over the internet!
Throw Trucks With Your Mind will be released to PC and Mac.
