Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy
Just get over it already. Bennett Foddy, the developer behind the ragdoll track simulator we never knew we wanted, QWOP, released a trailer for his new game. It's meant to hurt us.
The trailer for Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy centers around a man who, with his lower body stuck in a cauldron, must swing a hammer against the ground with QWOP-like levels of success in order to climb a mountain. It's a fun, ridiculous premise made better by animations that imply the controls are similar to QWOP's intentionally tricky design.
Smooth, lounge piano jazz plays behind the man's struggles, as Foddy intones a spoken word poem that explains his reason for creating the game.
"Why did I make this?" Foddy ponders, only to answer tha question later in the trailer: "I created this game for a certain kind of person, to hurt them."
Expect the hurt to begin soon. Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy launches on the Humble Monthly Bundle on October 6 and on Steam in December.
