I Wanna Be The Guy is the most macochistic 2d sidescrolley-platformery-adventure game I’ve ever seen or heard of. it doesn’t appeal to me really, but I’m still fairly impressed by people who are great at these things. respect.

as seen from the vid, iwbtg is inspired by games of the NES era – heavily influenced by megaman and super mario bros. but covers many other games like metriod, legend of zelda and even tetris. so in a phrase, the game is chalk full of nostalgia packed sucker punches of frustratingly challenging proportions.
