You know the expression "to pick one's brain"? That's precisely what gets Benjamin (the little pink guy you see above) into trouble. You control Benjamin in Soul Searchin', a delightful platformer that sees you play with scale to get through to the end. Like the short film classic Powers of Ten, each segment will bring you down to one-fifth of your size as you continue through smaller and smaller passageways deeper into your mind. You're not alone on this journey, however: not only is there an excellent beat to march you through the game, but there are also small sentences typed out in the world to narrate the story. The game was created by Maxim Schoemaker over the course of one weekend in April for the Ludum Dare competition, and if you haven't figured it out already, it's well worth your time to pick Benjamin's brain.
