Baba Is You is a puzzle game where the rules you have to follow are present as physical objects in the game world. By manipulating the rules, you can change how the game works, repurpose things you find in the levels and cause surprising interactions!
In April 2017 I participated in the Nordic Game Jam in Copenhagen. The theme was "Not There", which made me think of logic operators. I originally hadn't planned to take part in the jamming itself, intending instead to work on my existing projects. However I ended prototyping the idea I got a bit and ended up liking it, especially when other people showed interest in the idea. I ended up winning the jam with Baba Is You, and after some uncertainty regarding what to do with the game afterwards I decided to keep developing it into a full puzzle game. Over time my other projects got put on hold so that I could concentrate on developing Baba. It's probably one of the projects I've had the most fun developing.
