If you have a minute, I'd like to tell you a bit about myself....

The Company of Myself tells the story of a hermit who lives in a green, grass-filled world. He is the only human left for unexplained reasons, but there was once also a woman whom the main character loved. The objective of the game is obviously to reach the goal point, but unlike other platformers, the character achieves this by duplicating his very actions with the simple act of pressing the spacebar. Thus, he can create a doppelganger that will assist him with his adventures. He will be needing them later in the game.

The Newgrounds version can be found here.

A sequel (or possibly prequel, since Henry dies before the end of the existing prequel) is planned. It will be called Grief and since Jack's story has been already told we move on to his psychologist's story. Henry the arguably incompetent psychologist will learn he is dying. We will be able to play as Henry as he goes through the 5 Stages of Grief. The game will feature the characters Henry, Henry's doctor, Henry's daughter, and the Grim Reaper.

There is also a prequel, called Fixation. It focuses on Kathryn.

I am aware of the tropes that populate this online game, so I wish to list them below:

The prequel, Fixation, has these tropes:[edit | hide | hide all]

Jack: I'll take... this left path. The path to the right leads home.

Penelope: Henry's dead.
