A downloadable demo for Windows

❝ who do you think you are? ❞

Is it brave or foolish to seek out an intruder in one's own home? Is it one's right, or one's downfall?

Negotiate a stormy night and navigate a strange mansion in pursuit of order. Examine everything in your path and restore what you can, discovering more about the house and its keeper as you go. Every curious detail is relevant, and it will serve you best to pay close attention.

Who Do You Think You Are is an upcoming exploration game with an emphasis on atmosphere and flavortext. This demo is about 10-25 minutes long, with nine maps to explore and several items to collect, examine, and make use of. You can look at almost everything — don't neglect those shelves, walls, and drawers.

WDYTYA was conceived for My First Game Jam! In the future, I intend to continue developing this into a full-length game with over 20 maps! It will also include some amount of supplemental material (prose & short stories) with the eventual updated re-release.

controls:

  • arrow keys or wasd to move
  • shift to run
  • enter / spacebar to examine, use, confirm, open doors, etc
  • esc to access menu, go back, etc

UPDATE 1/30/16: By request, I've created a WASD-exclusive download using the Full Input Keyboard script by Cidiomar R. Dias Junior. If you can only use or exclusively prefer WASD movement, download wdytya-demo-wasd.zip!

I've included the RPG Maker VX Ace RTP in the current build, but if you ever need the RTP in general, here's a link.

WDYTYA is an RPG Maker VX Ace game developed for #myfirstgamejam. It features custom free non-commercial use tilesets and audio assets by various talented creators. For a full list of credits, click here. For the original devlog, click here.

In the future, I'd love to (and I plan to) revisit this project! I really want to flesh it out more fully in terms of writing, gameplay, and graphics. For now, please enjoy what I've managed so far!

Special thanks to my cool tester and to everyone participating in the jam! You guys are super inspiring and this has been an amazing experience. Thank you so much!

if necessary -- contact me if you
would like it! Also feel free to email or
message me about bugs, because lbr,
there will probably be a bunch).
