20 Games Like The Beginner's Guide()



Recommended by DanielFoutz

These games both feature the voice of the developer as a character in the game. The developers directly use their games as a means of communicating mechanically and verbally with players. For me, Bennett's narration is what elevates Getting Over It from challenging meme game to meaningful interactive art. That sense of learning and more intimate relation to the developer is one I've experienced in only a few games but The Beginner's Guide is certainly the one that stuck out most in my head as I played.

Dragons, witches, trolls... No one can stop Anna. With her telekinesis, unorthodox use of torture instruments, a knack for improvisation and the help of a shady fox she just makes her way. She communes with the dead, shuts off the local taverns beer supply and gets old ladies behind bars...

The world of author Dane Krams' debut on the game development stage isn't as cuddly as it may seem. Anna however, is actually perfectly nice - or is she? It all starts with freeing talking teddy bear... Anna's Quest unfolds a hand-drawn, grim tale with a good dash of self-irony.
