Does The Witness count? Considering Casey was the one who rewrote the movement code for it [citation needed] I'd say it does. Therefore, either the hero should never be able to move or... Casey is a dirty liar!!!

I did not make The Witness! I just wrote the collision code and some of the editor :) So it definitely does not count, because if it did, all the games that I have code in would count, and there's thousands of those, all of which have walking characters!

But, I will note one very important thing:

I said walking around. The main character in this game has no legs and therefore cannot walk. So I will still be able to make one game after this one where you do control the character's walking!
