I Wanna Be the Guy

http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/

Good lord, is anyone else playing this, or has played this game?

It is the most ridiculous, hilarious, Fake Difficulty-packed Nintendo Hard game ever created. And I cannot stop playing it holy shit man.

Much like my masochistic obsession with Touhou titles, the more the game brutally destroys my every attempt to win, the more I must play it.

So yeah. Has anyone here become The Guy? How many Game Overs did it take you?

I've already died 200 times just getting to the screen with the Quickman lasers, which is like, the 5th or 6th screen. Not so good at this.

I cant figure out the darn double jump. It either needs some special timing or its just messed up for me.

I think it's just a matter of unresponsive controls. There's no special timing required as far as I've found (in fact one screen requires you to do the second jump way after the first), but I have also died a bunch of times because it just randomly didn't work.

I saw a video LP of this a couple years ago and it was one of the funnest things I've ever watched. Can't imagine playing it though.

One extra thing to consider is that the difficulty settings only adjust the number of save points in the game (a commentary on how additional checkpoints and the ability to save data has made games tremendously more manageable perhaps?) and the highest difficulty level has zero. Beating that would automatically qualify you as the greatest person to have ever played any game in the history of human civilization I would think.

Tried both clients and seems like its the same. Saw a video of some guy doing it and it seems it just doesn't jump for me.

I had watched some retsupuraes making fun of those Let's Players trying to play I Wanna Be the Guy is the hilarious thing I watched...

Also, the Tetris level... probably the funniest level ever because of the music and what happens if you don't get to the top.

I tried this game, I never made it too far. Either I found it too boring or difficult, I don't really remember. Generally, immense difficulty can lead to no fun at all, and thus boredom. But really, some parts of the game just seemed downright impossible. Then again, I sucked at the game. :x

This is the whole point. It is a game for masochists. If you are doing well, something is wrong.

It's all about the hilarious ways in which everything is trying to kill you.
