A downloadable Experiment for Windows and macOS

Smithee is about terrible ideas coming together to make something (possibly) beautifully broken. 

This was an experiment in trying to salvage pieces of an old, scrapped game and turn it into something I could release. It was an attempt to make a game with an aimless design direction. By this I mean this game was made with no design goals, no direction, and nothing planned beforehand. I wanted to see if it could work and where it would take me. 

What I'm left with is a basic game that harkens back to hidden item games and other adventure games. You'll journey through apartments, office buildings, house parties, restaurants, and even hidden underground lairs.

Explore a world being held together at the seams by fragile thread, and uncover the mystery. (?)


WSAD - Move

SPACE - Jump

Left Mouse - Interact

*NOTE: If you're stuck on a slope or stairs, try jumping.

Smithee: Extra Janky Edition includes added frustrations, like:

  • Unskippable text. Time that text remains onscreen varies between 1-2 sec
  • Added movement difficulty if a controller is plugged in. You will fight against the current of an invisible tide wherever you go.

That moment when I have to go up the spiral staircase the second time.

Oh no! But glad we realized the issue and I'll see what I can do to fix it
