Who Do You Think You Are? (DEMO 1.0)
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 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 nine maps to explore and several items to collect, examine, and use.
The 2016 demo was my first completed RPGMaker project as an inexperienced dev. As MFGJ was coming to a close, I realized that I wanted to flesh out the concept into a longer game, and WDYTYA has remained in-progress since then. A massive overhaul is in progress, and an updated demo is anticipated in 2018. 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.
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.

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!

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.
UPDATE 1/30/16: By request, I've created a WASD-exclusive version 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!
