Twist And Tumble: All Of Our Friends Are Dead

Eek, skull.

There’s something great fun about enjoying something without having the faintest idea what it’s about, or quite why you’re enjoying it. All Of Our Friends Are Dead offers this experience. It’s a side-scrolling platformer, movement with WASD and aiming your cursor with the mouse. And it’s strange.

Think Abuse from a far more wrong dimension. Using a fantastic mix of scratchy pixel art and twisted ambient gloom, what is essentially a simple platform game becomes something of a headfuck. I haven’t been able to make sense of the confusion of words written on the backgrounds, nor the freakish flashes that occur in the middle of levels. And I like it that way. It’s also got one of the most satisfying guns in forever. I would have liked the jumping to feel a little more solid, but rather than repeat levels after failing to clear awkward gaps, you can save and load with F5 and F6. It’s the work of Amon26, posting on the TIG Forums. You can get it here and here. Thanks to TIG Source for the spot.
