Follow Your Heart!

In a dark room, the participant will follow a light that
moves across the ground in time to their heartbeat. As the user moves
faster, so will their heart rate and so will the avatar of their
heart, creating an accelerating feedback loop that inevitably
concludes with the participant peaking and then not being able to
keep up. When the participant has given up in exhaustion, the light
will sympathetically return to orbit them in a protective circle,
drawing a sense of closure.
