kaleidoscopic way

Hey guys, the preceding list is very special. It is the list of the first six people to complete I wanna be the Fangame! with all secret items. They win an early beta of I wanna Time Travel - a failed little experiment I created a year or so ago.. it's basically chronotron crossed with I wanna be the Guy! (if you've never played chronotron google it, it's a lot of fun)

For those of you who aren't on that list, here's a small taste of what those awesome people could be playing right now:

Ahh yeah, when we released the Beta we were still playing around with the engine, and just before we released it something with our exit buttons was giving us grief, so we just removed them so we could get it out on time. The final game should have them working just fine. For now, Alt+F4 should work.

Orann are you the one who makes these games? If you are, I hate you as much as I like you. Man these games give me nightmares :D Great job.

I'm not a good player myself, I usually play story driven games and I play them on easy but if possible puzzles on hard. In I wanna be the guy, game is a puzzle itself. This is great man, even I am trying to finish this game. So keep up the good work, you'll have lots of supporters for sure.

Also Masochistic Mario Brothers is good idea. I'll wait for it.

Well, actually, I'm not the creator. The guy that made this game to begin with, and who's done a major majority of the content is a good friend of mine, Tijit. I'm a level designer, lead tester and general fixer-upper. Aside from designing screens, I'm responsible for playing with the difficulty and challenges in the levels (Tijit has a habbit of making frames too hard; He plays IWBTG on impossible for god's sake!), thinking up puzzles, aesthetics etc.

It's great to see support for the game. Thanks!

I look foward to hearing what you think of the final version.

That depends on what game you're talking about. The original I Wanna Be The Guy was released a long time ago, yes, but this game is still in development as a completely new fan-made game using the same physics engine and design principals. As for the Beta V.2, that was "released" a while ago too, in that it was posted on a few forums for people that asked to see it in development. Since then it's gotten out a bit (Over 10,000 downloads at last look), which we're really happy about.

So, this game hasn't been released yet, but the beta was a while ago, and the original IWBTG was ages ago.
