Getting Over It requires a resolve Matt doesn’t have

"The calm man is a precise man" - Anonymous, 2017

You may have witnessed us trying difficult mountain climbing game Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy. Last week Matt attempted to scale part of the mountain, clambering over rocks, girders, concrete pipes and wooden barrels using nothing but the game’s jerky sledgehammer and terrifying upper body strength. He did well. But Matt lacks a deeper comprehension of summits and the ascent thereof – a philosophical understanding I myself possess. So I decided to pick up where he left off. Come and watch me Getting Over Matt.

As you can see, my approach is more disciplined and, some would say, superior. A reckless mind begets a reckless hand, and there is no room for such things here.

I doubt Matt will ever get beyond this point.

    Yeah, no. Following the advent calendar, I installed the game (it was standing still in my “yet to redeem” Humble Monthly codes), launched it, closed it after 10 minutes.

    I’m sure it’s a great game and all, and might actually scratch that itch for some people, but I simply have so little time for games I’m going to spend it on games scratching a different itch

    I laughed so hard so many times at this. “See, if I were Matt, I’d be like, ‘I wanna get up there! I wanna get up there!’ *flails* …. hey that actually worked.”

    I had that exact same reaction upon clearing the fucking lights.

    Don’t trust the umbrella. Don’t.

    Also, please keep doing this. Is alice next? Can we get a Pip special guest?

    A bit of schadenfreude in me was hoping for a catastrophic ending… but well done Brendy :-)

    I can’t wait to see this rivalry play out. = D

    I laughed myself silly failing badly at this for an hour. Then quit.

    I suspect I won’t get beyond this point either. You clearly have more patience than me.
