I Wanna Be the Guy: Gaiden RELEASED

Here we go! I Wnna Be the Guy: Gaiden is ready for public consumption. Things might be a bit buggy at first, but a few revisions later and things should be all smoothed out. I’m sure you’ll all live though. The bugginess is sometimes part of the charm for the IWBTG experience, right?

So what is Gaiden? Gaiden is an episodic side story following The Lad in his search for The Kid/Guy. Why does The Lad seek The Kid? Who cares — it’s a 3 stage episodic bite of new IWBTG action. What about the future of Gaiden? Hard to say. Brave Earth is going to steal my attention until it’s done, so don’t expect more any time soon, but I surely will add more content at some point. How big will that content be? How many episodes will their be? Who cares, I’m playing it by ear.

So what’s working, what’s not working and whatever?

We have…

    *New stage based gameplay
    *3 Stages
    *Configurable Controls with Gamepad support
    *Trophies (also supported through Gamejolt)
    *Time Trial Leaderboards(Only through Gamejolt)
    *A new button! Z to jump, X to shoot and X to BIIIONIC AAAARM
    *Probably won’t crash!

What isn’t done?

    *No fullscreen or resolution support.
    *Probably needs a lot of optimization
    *Probably has lots of bugs
    *People wanna be able to fuck with people like I fucked with Floe. I might be able to come up with a way to do that in the future.
    *Graphical options are basic. Sound options seem to be a little flighty.
    *Some interface/menu stuff is kinda groudy and needs modification.
    *Might still crash! (but unlike with MMF2, there is more I can do about it this time around.)

So if you have any problems, bare with me.


Also I’d recommend getting a Gamejolt account so you can share your trophies and times with other players! Sign-in is inside the trophy menu.
