I wanna be the...Guy? by Neolucky I wanna be the...Guy? by Neolucky
Every Saturday night I sit and skype with two good friends, :iconkatie-w: and :iconkayinnasaki:. For the longest time, I had no idea that Kayinn had made a rather popular game - I Wanna Be The Guy!

Over some time I got acquainted with this game, and realized just how everyone seemed to know about it but me. This fanart has been a long time coming, because it's a pretty fun game all around, if not infuriating as all hell.

I've never been past the first level, if you're curious.

To play the game for free go to - [link]

Oh and a song for this image - [link]

This is absolutely awesome.  It's so beautifully drawn!  And you even included the Medium mode ribbon!  That's a great touch!

This is how I felt after I beat I Wanna be the Guy on Very Hard mode with a self-imposed challenge to only use 11 of the 22 saves.

I'm not sure what program you use - but is there a quick way to get that white outline around your lineart, or do you do it manually?

Neolucky Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2012  Professional General Artist
I use photoshop to get the outline, it's called a "stroke"! I draw in SAI mostly, but PS has a lot of great tools as well.

I use ps too, but I'm trying to learn about the tools more. I'll have to look up "stroke" Thanks!

NICE! Also, damn hard game. I actually broke my keyboard at one point. (Probably just gave out because the game I was playing before that was Give Up Robot)

IWBTG is all about trial and error on your first playthrough. If you're persistent you'll beat it. <3

Awesome picture btw.

How could you not notice something was up if Kayinn was constantly giving out loud and long evil laughs like he's a super villain?

I think she just thought I was an evil pervert and not an evil pervert who also made a game that expresses BDSM values.

You're friends with the IWBTG guy? Oh god. I beat that monstrosity of a game on Hard (which is the game's second-easiest setting, really) a few years back and I've been bragging ever since. Hell, I dressed up at a con as The Kid once.

Additionally, I frequently drop the quote "They're really more like giant cherries..." all over the place, even though no one ever gets the reference.

Hehe,pretty cool. I'm familiar with this game,since I've seen three youtubers that I watch play this..and yeah,you're not alone. They couldnt get past the first level either. I'd probably fail bad at this game anyways xD Glad to see some I Wanna Be The Guy fan art though.

Incredible pose- he looks both tired and defiant. Just cleared a level, apparently :)

Heard that game is über hard... I'll check it out if I have the time. Did Kayinn really make it?! Awesome!!!
