"Welcome to my bathroom!" the cheerful voice chirps from the overhead speaker.

 Where are you? What are you doing here? How did you even get here? 

All of those questions seem irrelevant now. One thing is apparent and totally consuming...

You're here now.

You're Here Now is a maze solving game, in essence . Navigate a procedural maze to find the secret code and the exit. You will need to be careful and choose your route wisely though—you are not alone.


You're Here Now is also a game of exploration. Scattered throughout the rooms are clues to the larger story behind the maze and its architect. 

  • Who brought you? 
  • Why? 
  • What's that smell?

The answers to some of these questions wait to be discovered, by you?


Yes. This game is intended to be the first in a trilogy. Regardless of whether or not it's a good idea, parts two and three will arrive imminently.


Controls: This game was authored to be played with Mouse + Keyboard. If there is enough public outcry, I may include controller support. The customizable default keys are:

  • Mouse (look)
  • WASD (movement)
  • E (open doors)
  • F1 (reveal frames/second in upper left)

Requirements: It shouldn't be too stressful for your hardware.

  • Windows 7SP1+, macOS 10.11+
  • DX10 shader model 4.0+
  • CPU SSe2 instruction set support
  • If there is enough public outcry, I will release a Linux build

i.. have no idea man. i just have no clue

Played your game for a video! Hope you enjoy it :)

This game took me to a weird place mentally. I had a few awakenings, breakdowns, and some boredom. Good game though :D

This was a real CRAPPY time of you're smelling what I am stepping in ;D

Thanks for the fun ❤


Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the video!

Among other things. The place certainly doesn't look well kept, does it? Thanks for playing!

Hey  seriously love the game , but somethings feel a little off but i made a gameplay hope you like it

I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for making a video :)

I was looking at the game's tags when I was finishing up the video, and I was wondering why you tagged a game about the world's largest (and dirtiest) bathroom with Milwaukee. I mean, I figured it out, but that was a weird five minutes.


(+1)

Most of my games secretly take place in Milwaukee. Although the next one looks like it won't. 

Won't take place in Milkwaukee, or won't secretly take place in Milwaukee?

Ha! Won't take place in Milwaukee. It's a stealth horror game I've wanted to make for a long time. Just need to start getting up earlier again.

Sweet. I'll keep an eye out.

I think I accidentally avoided the monster :P 

(+1)

Ha! You're not the only one who made it out alive. My random algorithm is surprising me and watching it play out in the experiences of players is fascinating. I may decide to release a patch, but for now I'm having a good time watching people's reactions. Thanks for playing!

It was my pleasure bud :)

Gave it a go...

(+1)

Thanks for giving it a shot!

I gotta be honest, I went in with low expectations due to it being a maze game, but the charm and overall weirdness was awesome, and I'm glad I went back to get myself killed. I was kinda expecting the monster to be patrolling around. Well made, funny and a good challenge. Thanks for releasing this.

Woot! Thanks for giving it a chance and thanks for the video! I'm glad you liked it :) Consider leaving a review!

August looks like a reject from the Teletubbies :O 

Thanks for playing, and for the video! That is definitely an interesting take! I modeled him after the female of the species of deep sea angler fish Melanocetus johnsonii. I've always been fascinated by the creatures of the abyss. For some reason it made sense to me for a predatory fish/woman/man hybrid to be able to survive in a huge subterranean bathroom. #logic

I like the game, but is there any way to tell where August might be before you meet him? 

(+2)

I was inspired by the old game "Hunt the Wumpus" which I used to play on my old TI as a little kid. August can move randomly among a set number of rooms along the route to the exit. Whether or not he finds you is somewhat random, and there is no way of knowing ahead of time.

Thank you for telling me this. One more question, if you could- does he move between rooms on his own pace, or just whenever you enter another room?

His movement is triggered when you enter a new room :)

(+1)

The darkness before entering a room is terrifying

(+2)

This is definitely one of those circumstances where a choice that was made to improve performance also ended up creating a nice, creepy atmosphere. Glad you noticed :)

I tried downloading the link is broken...

Thanks for letting me know! It looks like it's fixed now!

Pretty cool. Gets a little repetitive at times but the tense situation of not knowing what when you'll run into the monster or what it will do keeps the suspense up pretty good.

(+1)

Thanks for playing and for the video! If you enjoyed it, a good rating would help a lot!

Thank you for playing and for the video! Danke, Freund aus Deutschland :) if you had fun, please rate the game!

That maze must have taken some time to build, I wonder what that guy does. :)

(+1)

Thanks for playing and for the video! Little hints as to The Plumber's back story are scattered throughout the maze, and more will be revealed in the 2 upcoming sequels. If you liked the game, please consider rating it.
