The Company of Myself is a puzzle platform game available on kongregate.com. Players quickly become acquainted with the introverted nature of the lonely protagonist, who blames himself for losing the love of his life. The unusually high level of characterization for a 2d platformer makes The Company of Myself a highly unique game. Aside from the directional controls, there are two button commands: “R” which allows players to reset the level and the spacebar. It’s as if all player movements are being filmed on camera until the player hits the spacebar. Once pressed, the shadow of the protagonist will recreate the previous path while the character remains on screen. Therefore, players can use these shadows to platform through some seemingly impassible terrain. Although there is no inappropriate content, musically, conceptually, and strategically, The Company of Myself is bit of an unsettling experience. We recommend it to players 10 years old and up.
