Speedrun Leaderboards!

The greay guys over at have agreed to create a series for IWBTG fangames, so now all your fangame speedrun times are being collected there! If you have a time you'd like to submit for a game, or a game that isn't on the list yet, head over there and add it. We're displaying a link to the leaderboards on every fangame on that has an entry on, so now people that visit the game pages can easily find speedrun times. We hope you enjoy the new functionality!

Special thanks to Jumpyluff and Tehjman1993 for working to add games and speedrun times, and to Pac of for setting us up with such a great system!

Private Messages!

Hey Everyone! Today we have a small update just to let you know we've added Private Messaging to the site! This system will be utilized by administrators, to let you know if there's a problem with some content you've posted, if we have any questions, etc. It will also be available to you to use to message each other! You can find a "PM this user" link on everyone's profiles, or you can enter the username directly from the send message page as well.

Not a lot of content for this release, but we've got our sights set on badges next! Just giving you a heads up towards the new functionality. Thanks for continuing to use the site, the progress we've made is amazing!

New Tag System!

Hello Del-Fruitettes!

We have a H O T update for you all that will make your game sorting and reviewing a tiny bit easier! Have you ever thought "Shucks, I like this game but I'm sick of telling people's its avoidance over and over"? Well now you're in luck! With the new T.A.G. (Titles About Games) system, you can simply put a label on the game as part of your review!

Here's how it works:
-You review a game with your normal text-based review, rating, and difficulty. Now, on this same review, you can add T.A.G.s onto your review that will help users search this game up, as well as give them an idea about the game they're looking at!
-Once a game has been T.A.G.'d, it will appear under a total list of T.A.G.s for that game. Each T.A.G. is tallied up with a number in parentheses next to it. More popular T.A.G.s will be shown first, while less popular ones are shown last.
-Games can be searched through this T.A.G. system. For example - searching 'avoidance' will (hopefully) bring up a long list of avoidance games, or games that have an avoidance in them.

...and that's it! We've provided a list here to help you get started when you T.A.G. a game! You do NOT have to pick from this list, rather, it is more of a 'recommended starter pack' of T.A.G.s! (DLC not included)

  • Adventure

  • Needle

  • Avoidance

  • Trap

  • Gimmick

  • Medley

  • Boss

  • Secrets

  • 100_Floor

  • Miku

  • Engine

We ask that there be no troll and/or offensive T.A.G.s when reviewing games. These titles include "Troll", "Bad", "AIDS", etc. We encourage users to report any review that uses negative T.A.G.s to review a game so that an admin can remove the review. Excessive use of negative T.A.G.s may result in account suspension and/or death by toucans.

One Week In!

Hey Everyone! It's been a week since we launched DelFruit, and a lot's happened in this time! First off let me thank everyone who's participated so far in the site, it wouldn't be possible without all the reviews, screenshots and games (and even reports) you've submitted! Here's a few details on your content:

  • Together our users have cleared 1,196 games!

  • Our users have 326 favorites!

  • We've got 2,152 games in our database!

  • We've written a whopping 560 reviews!

  • There's 513 screenshots available for games!

  • We've hit over 100 users!

Congratulations guys, this is phenomenal work! If we can do this in one week, imagine what's possible as we move forward!

Now on to features. You guys have been very vocal (that's a good thing!) about the things you wish DelFruit could do to make your life easier. Well we're listening, and in the week since release we've implemented:

  • Advanced Search - lets you do a detailed search for games by rating, difficulty, even games you haven't reviewed yet!

  • I'm Feelin' Lucky - Same as the advanced search, put randomly picks a result and gives it to you - perfect for Roulette!

  • User List - to browse dank users

  • Review Deletion - because sometimes you want to take it back

And that's just the big stuff - we've done tons of little tweaks on the site!

What about the future of DelFruit, you ask? Well, here's a Cliff's Notes version of our plans:

  • Reviews Feed - Never miss a review!

  • Speedrun Leaderboards - Taking competition to the next level and bringing it all into one place

  • Badges - Get recognized for your hard work

  • 'Remember Me' - Yes, yes, I know you're tired of logging in. This will come soon, I'm researching the security implications

And tons more! I'm really excited to be a part of this project, and hope you guys are having as much fun as I am. If you'd like to request a feature or just talk about the site in general, visit out post on the forums: Introducing Delicious Fruit!

Thanks for reading!

Welcome to DelFruit!

Welcome to Delicious Fruit! We're working to compile an exhaustive database of every I Wanna Be the Guy fangame. On top of that, we've got a whole host of functionality to help you find new, interesting games and give love to the classics!

Looking for a fangame by name or author? Use the search bar at the top of every page to do a quick search. We also have a full list, organized alphabetically, for you to browse through. Or maybe you're lazy and want a random game? We have you covered there too!

Really liked a game, and want the world to know? Or maybe you thought it wasn't worth your time, and want to warn others not to end up like you! You can rate every game in our database! Our rating scale is 0-10, and our difficulty scale is 0-100, so you can know at a glance just how fun and how difficult a fangame is. And if you want to go in depth, you can leave a review, up to 50,000 characters long - that's about 2 500-word essays ;)

We also support screenshots, so you can take a quick look at a fangame before you download it. Don't like the default tileset? Don't worry about it! Love miku? Maybe you'll find one!

And if you're the kind of person who likes to maintain favorite/clear lists, we support that too - it's as simple as ticking a checkbox for each game you like or you've cleared, and we'll handle the rest!

You can use the site without an account, and enjoy the basic functionality of browsing through our database of games. But to take advantage of all the features we've worked hard to create for you, why not make an account? It only takes about 10 seconds (and costs absolutely nothing), and then you're free to use everything on the site!

Whether you're here just to find a game, or want to help us make the best IWBTG fangame database ever, welcome! We hope you enjoy your stay.

Special Thanks goes out to Tehjman1993 for coming up with the idea for the site, and Patrickgh3 for suggestions on features and help with the implementation, and of course shoutouts to The Wannabes!
