You are accused of a heinous, monstrous crime: the kidnapping of a little girl. You're under the hot lights in a police interrogation room. You're sweating, eyes bloodshot. The police think you have something to hide. They are right.

Standing There is a short neo-noir game about a man named Andy, accused of abducting a little girl. He swears he didn't do it, but as the police interrogate him, an almost darker truth emerges. Through a series of short cinematic vignettes, the game explores the concepts of truth, guilt, memory, morality, and monsters.

Standing There takes ~15 minutes to play and is best experienced with headphones.

This is why you don't do drugs.

Thanks for playing and for posting the video!

The thing I like about your stuff John is that it is always completely different to what you last did. Not much to do in this one but tells a good story  with some fantastic cut scenes that piece it all together. All runs fine and smooth and another great game. Keep them coming... :)

Thanks! You do the Lord's work posting videos of the games on Itch, and the devs appreciate it!
