So when you start off, are you actually the cat? Is that why you're short and can't jump?
For My Aspect
A downloadable F.M.A. game for Windows and Linux
In For My Aspect (F.M.A.), a first person combat horror game, awaken high atop a lodge on Fluorescent Mountain during an excursion to Alaska for an exciting new aspect. Play through the eyes of Scipione Matella, a rich, novice novelist searching to regain his sense of surroundings. Scipione brought a PC, a cat, a flashlight, and some rations to travel light. Collect pieces of Scipione's digital journal (a "tome") while experiencing beautiful Alaskan vistas and slaying your personal demons. After all, how can you write a novel if you don't have a perspective of the novel's climate?
My goal was to create a game as a loosely metaphorical representation of my ADHD. F.M.A. was intended to be about five minutes long, but I expanded on my ideas until I reached its current length of about an hour with 2300 lines of code orchestrating the experience. F.M.A. took about 2.5 months to complete, and some days I worked from dawn to dusk. I managed to create many assets I'll continue to use in my next stories like crouching, prone, and enemy graph pathfinding. I made For My Aspect with the game engine Godot 3.3 (and made in Georgia) and exported with Godot 3.3.3. I already have plans to continue the story in even bigger sequels starting with an open world RPG combat horror game F.M.A.-2, so please don't try to sue me for my first entry in the series.

The whole short story is intentionally vague to be artistically interpretive like poetry. It's a great start for my interactive story writing endeavors.
Rise from your bed with C and jump to the sky with ease using Space. CSpace.
Keep playing; the game gets better as I continued to learn and work.

I got a little further, and then was tall and could jump, so that's why I thought I was the cat. But after I got small again, I got trapped in the bedroom by some black smoke thing and it killed me instantly every time the game reloaded. I'll give it another shot when I have more time to try again and play back to that point.
