A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

I just wanted a brain is a casual 3d game with elements of stealth and puzzles, inspired by classics such as resident evil, but with the difference that the player will not be a human against zombies, but will impersonate bob, a zombie awakened in a wood without memories of his human past, but with his intellectual abilities still unaltered, through his journey to find a cure to reobtain his human form.

 The game is structured in two levels, the first in the wood where Bob wakes up, where the player will start using his zombie skills including the possibility of infecting humans and transforming them into zombies that he can control to overcome obstacles such as bridges or heights and loosening his arm to use it as a boomerang or as a diversion against enemies.

The NPC’s to which the player must be careful are civilians, harmless to Bob as they will run away at the first sight of our zombie but a good source of allies, soldiers and armored soldiers, who instead will immediately shoot the player as soon as they have him at gunpoint.

There are also traps such as anti-zombie mines and resin that will slow down the player's movements, making it more difficult to “run” away.

Will you be able to reach the laboratory at the end of the forest, and after having untangled yourself among various puzzles to finally find the scientist with the cure to return to human?
