You Are Not Playing The Game is a fun little fourth wall breaking arcade horror game that takes some fun twists as you attempt to play a game that doesn’t want to be played.
Created for the A Game By Its Cover 2021 game jam, in You Are Not Playing The Game you are presented with a video game cartridge that doesn’t want to be played. Then after a little gentle persuasion it does allow you to play it but won’t let you escape. To say much more will ruin the surprises, but it’s an inventive little game with a nice mixture of game styles during the game’s short play time.
It’s a fun little game with some nice twists, a great sense of humor and some excellent pixel art animation. A great little game well worth playing (even if it doesn’t want you to!)
