Download Wrapper I Wanna Be The Guy
I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game is a sardonic loveletter to the halcyon days of early American videogaming, packaged as a nail-rippingly difficult platform adventure. Players fill the role of The Kid, a youthful, vaguely Megaman-esque protagonist on a quest to become The Guy. This inscrutable plot, however, is just a vehicle for a wide variety of inventive, well-designed and frustrating jump-and-shoot challenges that pay homage to many of the games you loved as a child. The ever-fragile Kid explodes in a shower of red pixels at the slightest brush from the game's many obstacles, from traditional spikes and bottomless pits to more unconventional killers, such as plantlife and puzzle pieces.
Using a multiroute layout not unlike a Metroidvania, the game grants a degree of deadly exploration, without thoseextraneous upgades meant to make life easier. The game provides players with a choice in terms of their deathrate, thanks to a variable difficulty setting that changes the number of save points from frequent to nonexistent. IWBTG is open to all players; knowledge of videogaming history is optional, and may not help against the frequently ironic and always sadistic deathtraps located herein. And so, the question is left up to you...
Do YOU have what it takes to be The Guy?
This game is impossible.
It is an excellent tribute to the games of yesteryear, however, and has many cameos from other famous games!
Also, I'd look up the controls before you play, otherwise you might even get stuck on the menus!
Your grandma's rig can run this.
None! It's perfectly fine, besides the game being FREAKING IMPOSSIBLE IN THE FIRST ROOM
(might take a while (~3 minutes) to start up on certain cards, though, be patient)
