Everyone knows the age-old love story, right? Boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy and girl suffer genetic manipulation by evil forces trying to take over the world, leaving the girl as a vampire and the boy as a hat… wait, what? There’s only one thing for it: go on a bloodthirsty rampage of death and destruction in a quest to become human again!
Packed with crazy platform blasting action, tongue-in-cheek humour and lashings of exploding body parts, head out on a journey through hell and back (literally) to change you both back to normal. Unlock abilities you never knew you had, then shoot your way through five worlds of blood-soaked monochrome mayhem and who knows, you might even set a new high sgore (ahem) along the way…
Blast your way through a violent platforming tale of vampire/hat love, betrayal and endless destruction, all drenched in pixelated gore!
Go crazy with your trusty shotgun and take the fight to the minions and massive bosses who hold the cure to your kick-ass condition!
Discover a world packed with off-the-wall dark humour and a unique art style from the twisted mind of Sinclair Strange!

I Want To Be Human is what you get when you mix vampires, hat, shotguns and side-scrolling gameplay. It's the tale of two lovers. One has been turned into a vampire, the other is now a hat. The goal of your adventure is to become human again (Hence the game's name) so you're travelling across levels filled with enemies to shoot with your good old pump-action shotgun! The visuals are a bit special. You see the game use mostly black and white with a tiny touch of blood-red. it gives the art direction a very good Sin City-like vibe (Except that the blood was white in Sin City). Gameplay-wise, it's a mixture of platformer, Run and Gun and exploration. The levels are huge with a lot of traps and jumping to do. The shooting part is very simple (This is not Contra) but very satisfying thanks to the dark humor and gore. Oh boy, this game is gory. It's probably the most violent side-scroller I've seen since Super Meat Boy! Every little guy you shoot turns into a bloody pile of gibs. It's fun as hell and you should buy it!
I Want To Be Human is clunky and boring. You play as a vampire girl with a shotgun and that alone sounds awesome, but sadly everything else drags it down. The story is a love story between a vampire and a human, and while not Twilight levels of bad, is still uninteresting. The gameplay feels like a slower, less fluid version of Super Meat Boy. As for the graphics, they somehow look generic, interesting, and bad all at the same time (this is not helped by the fact that the game commits the cardinal sin of having stuff block the camera). I wanted I Want To Be Human to be a good game. But it isn’t. It’s mediocre and flawed at best, and at its worst it is so poorly designed it is a legitimately bad game.
