I WANNA BE THE GUY: THE MOVIE: THE GAME: THE PICTURE BOOK:THE INTRODUCTION
What is I Wanna Be The Guy?

Perhaps the words of a random IWBTG forum member summarise it best:
Quote:
Originally Posted by Finale
I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game is a sardonic loveletter to the halcyon days of early American videogaming, packaged as a nail-rippingly difficult platform adventure. Players fill the role of The Kid, a youthful, vaguely Megaman-esque protagonist on a quest to become The Guy. This inscrutable plot, however, is just a vehicle for a wide variety of inventive, well-designed and frustrating jump-and-shoot challenges that pay homage to many of the games you loved as a child. The ever-fragile Kid explodes in a shower of red pixels at the slightest brush from the game's many obstacles, from traditional spikes and bottomless pits to more unconventional killers, such as plantlife and puzzle pieces.

Using a multiroute layout not unlike a Metroidvania, the game grants a degree of deadly exploration, without those extraneous upgades meant to make life easier. The game provides players with a choice in terms of their deathrate, thanks to a variable difficulty setting that changes the number of save points from frequent to nonexistent. IWBTG is open to all players; knowledge of videogaming history is optional, and may not help against the frequently ironic and always sadistic deathtraps located herein. And so, the question is left up to you...

Do YOU have what it takes to be The Guy?
Available from here along with its partially completed sequel, I Wanna Save The Kids, it is possibly one of the hardest games you will ever play.

It will be shown in picture form, since that cannot hope to capture the full cruelty of I Wanna Be The Guy.

Now let's see the full epic story of why you WANNA BE THE GUY and how you go about doing it.



Magnificent

So let's start.

After the title screen is the game select screen. It is unlikely to kill you.



On the left you can see my original game. I AM THE GUY by the way.

Let's start a new game on the easiest difficulty: Medium.

This takes us to the first room. Behold it, in all its glory!



Not very impressed I see? Perhaps I should tell you more about this room.

The areas of floor I've marked in red will kill you. Try to avoid them.



How could a perfectly innocent floor kill someone you ask?



The Kid is dead! I hope you're happy now.

To begin, we simply have to choose a path.

1: The Upper Path
2: The Lower Path
3: The Secret Path
Choose now!

Bottom path. Seriously.

Good times, down there.

In fact, all of my votes will just lead you to the brain.

You know which one I mean.

You're insane! Also, lower path, I always go the upper and I'm curious.

Awesome. Someone else to play this game for me, just what I always wanted.

Guess I'll go with the lower path. I recall making it five or so screens into the upper; clearly it's the easier choice.

Go lower and prove to me that fucking pit with the sea of spikes isn't a goddamn dead end because I swear to you it's a dead fucking end.

I thought the game was broken when I reached that pit.

And I still do...

HAHAHA!

Wow, I can tell this will be awesome... I've only beaten two bosses, but I'm well on my way to becoming the guy. Also, I vote for lower, mainly because of the music (later on anyway).
