Another short post because of another "short" game. Do you remember the game "I WANNA BE THE GUY"? The one that's made people all over Youtube tear their hair out and turned a few of them into soulless husks? That game has a sequel now, and it is just as good at breaking people's spirits as the first was.
"Can I REALLY be the Guy?"
The game is called: I Wanna Be The Guy: Gaiden, the first act of it was released in the summer of 2012. What makes this different from the original was the change to stage based gameplay (including an overworld filled with traps) and the biggest change: the addition of the swinging mechanic from Bionic Commando. Thats what keeps IWBTGG from being just more of the same platforming from the original game.
Still the same Kid from before
There is only one act so far, with three stages, each with its own boss, there may be more acts released in the future but Kayin wants to complete another game he's working on so it might be a while before that. Besides, there may be only three stages but its not like you'll be able to beat any of them.
