The Global Game Jam 2014 prompt was from the Anaïs Nin quote: "We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."
There is a psychological principle of "projection" that refers to this phenomena, and Jungians would probably refer to it as "shadow projection."
JUNG ON PROJECTION:
"Just as we tend to assume that the world is as we see it, we naively suppose that people are as we imagine them to be. In this latter case, unfortunately, there is no scientific test that would prove the discrepancy between perception and reality. Although the possibility of gross deception is infinitely greater here than in our perception of the physical world, we still go on naively projecting our own psychology into our fellow human beings. In this way everyone creates for himself a series of more or less imaginary relationships based essentially on projection."

JUNG ON THE SHADOW:
"Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it. Furthermore, it is constantly in contact with other interests, so that it is continually subjected to modifications. But if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected."

We took a literal interpretation of the concept of Shadow Projection as inspiration of this game.
