Bennett Foddy's "Getting Over It" is my favorite game trailer of 2017

Recommended Posts

Bennett "QWOP" Foddy's new game is a Sexy Hiking remake starring a shirtless dude in a pot climbing a mountain with a sledge hammer and I love the trailer so much.
 

 

"success is delicious"

 

And I can't hear the last sentence without mentally inserting:

"I created this game for a certain kind of person: Nick Breckon."

Well, that is something we've all lacked in our lives. A man in a iron pot with a sledgehammer trying to inch his way forward in life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is this set in the Firewatch cinematic universe?

I'm pretty sure that's Delilah in the tower you can see in the background of the video preview, drawing a sketch of the shirtless dude.

Yes, it's wonderful. And it's what finally got me to subscribe to Humble Monthly.

 

Well, this and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

This thing is out now, and this is my attempt at getting over it.

 

 

That narrow passage with the lanterns is the worst. I've figured out that you have to use the lanters to climb up, I even managed to get above the second one once, but then quickly panicked and tumbled back down. This game is brutal.

 

So, beyond this and ROTTR, how's the latest Humble Monthly? Well, Scanner Sombre looks interesting, especially since it has VR support now. And Seasons After Fall looks like some solid platforming, but I'm not too interested in any of this other stuff.

 

If anyone wants these keys, let me know:

Wargame: Red Dragon

Orwell

Furi

The Shrouded Isle

Ah, Sexy Hiking. I remembered the game but not the name. Good fit for Bennet Foddy I guess.

I made it to the kid on the slide. Then I fell all the way back down.

 

All. The. Way.

I forgot to subscribe to the humble monthly so I have to wait until this releases in December, but I'm looking forward to this. I legitimately liked Sexy Hiking. despite it being neither sexy nor even hiking (it was more like mountain climbing really).

This probably the fastest speedrun of it so far. 13 minutes! :U

 

 

3:40 is as far as I made it in my attempt, didn't realize you should go to the right at that point, I was trying to make it up the slide to the left, which is seemingly impossible. Then I messed up and fell all the way back to the start. :|

 

Ahahaha 6:30 is evil! :D Bet that caused plenty of mad flailing and setbacks to those who made it there.
