A downloadable demo for Windows

Who Do You Think You Are is an in-development exploration game that emphasizes atmosphere and flavortext. You play as a rudely-awoken (and rather extremely pretentious) individual trying to restore order to a large, eerie estate after something goes bump in the night. Made for #MyFirstGameJam in January 2016, the original demo is about 15-25 minutes long, with a number of rooms to explore and several items to collect, examine, and use.

The 2016 demo was my first completed RPGMaker project as an inexperienced dev. As of 2018, I'm revisiting WDYTYA to flesh it out a whole lot more, and an entirely new demo is in progress and anticipated in 2018-19. The second demo will also include a separate PDF containing a brief manual and some exclusive info about the setting and protagonist conveyed through supplemental fiction. For now, please enjoy the jam build!

At its heart, Who Do You Think You Are is a claustrophobic narrative about identity, guilt, and the shadows that haunt old houses. If you stand still and silent for long enough, you can hear the house settling, the garden growing, the portraits murmuring when you turn your back.
