A side story in the Outliers and Outsiders universe

Created for Magical Girl Game Jam 6

See Who I Am is a visual novel that explores transgender themes against the backdrop of the magical girl genre. It is a relatively short game with really janky art, but it was made in a month with limited time available to work on it. It might be exactly the story you expect, or it might be something completely different.

At the very least, I can finally say I've finished a visual novel.

Storyline

Steve is a regular young guy, struggling through his first year of college, with the biggest decision on his mind whether to finish watching a film for class or to play some video games and fake his way through the assignment. But when monsters and then magical girls come crashing through the walls, he'll have to face revelations that will change everything.

Game is short but well done. Story wise I fear its a bit shallow but kind of hard to go deeply into a hard theme in such a small game.

Thanks for playing!

There's definitely parts of the story I'm not happy with. One of the challenges I had was that I really wanted to get this subject matter right. I had to force myself to not let perfection be the enemy of good enough, and constrain the overall scope into something I could make in the time I had.
