"I can't find my glasses. I've checked the nightstand, the kitchen, the bathroom, the bag of cat food, the half-finished milk tea, the hallway of a thousand doors, outer space, and the weed garden, but I still can't find them anywhere!"

I can't find my glasses. is short Bitsy game about trying to find your glasses.

This wacky walking simulator was designed and built over two days. I can't find my glasses. is based on and inspired by my experiences of growing up with glasses and always leaving them in different places every time.

After realizing that making games was a ton of fun following my participation in the Global Game Jam 2019, I played around with Bitsy and realized I could make cool games through its fairly simple and intuitive engine.

As soon as inspiration struck, I took this idea and barreled through the sprites and dialogue boxes. From unsubtle Fall Out Boy references to odd space trips, I wrote about anything and everything I loved, hated, and was fascinated by.

Most importantly, having the patience to talk to — and pet! — the cat nets you 18 unique conversation lines.

Ivy is a very good cat.

Yeah... I'm not sure why I wrote this game either.


Creating this game taught me that I didn't have to be a programmer or coder to make a fun game. Instead of worrying about the fine details of a game engine, I instead poured my passion and humor into the dialogue and atmosphere of this game.
