This is from a series of experimental video games exploring religious actions. As an atheist who nevertheless feels religion to be a part of my life, I choose certain rituals, activities or mental games that people play to reinforce their faith and attempt to simulate them. The rules of the game are meant to be learned through experimentation. I began with the verb "Baptize" because the essential expressive power of a game is through the repetitive performance of an action, and attempted to create game mechanics that expressed feelings associated with that verb. When the player makes a connection with a non-player character, the character gets pulled toward the player and becomes part of the same mass, moving together, seeing through imperfectly-merged eyes.

OK, so I haven't properly tested this on an Android device. My phone is too slow, but I have tested it on an iPad. So if your Android is as fast as an iPad3 (or maybe even 2), it should work.
