The Company of Myself Walkthrough

The graphics and design aren't spectacular. However, this game isn't any run-of-the-mill puzzle game. Rather, this game is a thoroughly created psychological romp. It showcases equal parts of a replay-themed platformer as well as in-depth character development. This is a one-of-a-kind puzzle game that will surely appeal to everyone.

The game starts off with a short thought-provoking monologue, which introduces the protagonist and his character as well as his mentality. You are then dropped off into the game itself, where the controls are explained. All of your actions right up until you hit the Space Bar are being recorded. As soon as you press the space bar button, the level starts all over again. Everything stays the same except for one thing: there will be this ghostly light version of yourself who reenacts your first play, move-by-move. When you press space bar once more, it will restart the level but this time with two ghostly versions of yourself. There is a limit as to how many previous lives you can create. The main idea is to work with those ghostly versions of yourself to get past the level. Indeed, you need to work with you and you alone - therefore the name "The Company Of Myself".

One of the first things you'll notice is that much of the game is in the narrative, which portrays your character as self-reflective and introverted. A lot has been said on the subject of loneliness and how we humans cope up with it, which is all framed in this man's story. The character definitely had me hook, line, and sinker from start to finish.

As for the gameplay itself, it's not brand spanking new. However, the creators of the game have done an excellent job when it comes to bringing up puzzles and challenges where you really need to work with your past self. It can definitely get very challenging - a split second can mean the difference between finishing the level and diving down that bottomless pit. And it could easily get frustrating. The funny thing is that there's no one to be frustrated at but yourself.

While the gameplay is not new, it comes with a more than enough twists and turns to keep you interested. "The Company of Myself" is one of those puzzle games that deserves a thumbs-up. Enjoy!
