QWOP creator unveils cauldron man in Getting Over It

We've taken our QWOPs and our GIRPs, like all growing youngsters should, but can we really say we are healthy, well-balanced individuals until we have tried to climb a mountain using only a sledgehammer while stuck in a cauldron? That sounds like a rhetorical question, but it is not. Getting Over It [official site] is the next game from Bennett Foddy. And while it does…

CLIP CLOP: Horsing Around In Hest Til Fest

Four legs good, two legs bad, eight legs wow just ridiculous I mean really. QWOP creator Bennett Foddy turned his physics-driven leg simulator all horsey with CLOP a few years back, and now a team of Nordic Game Jammers have slapped on another four legs and another twelve movements to make a game they didn't, for reasons I can't imagine, call QWERTYUIASDFGHJK.

Garry’s Mod And State Of Decay In Humble Bundle

Say kid, how do you fancy being a YouTube sensation, a real livestream Liberace? "B-but where would I even start?" you ask, eyes wide with hope. A new Humble Weekly Sale offers almost everything you need to become an Internet megastar, minus the hardware and a dreadful persona. Curated by 'PewDiePie' (he has YouTube's most-subscribed channel, don't you know?) the bundle packs a few games…

Insanity: 30 Games From Hotline, KRZ, More Devs For $15

This is probably the most exciting game-related anything I've seen in months. And yes, as the headline suggests, it's entirely bonkers. Remember Zineth developer Arcane Kids' Tribes-meets-Tony-Hawk thing Perfect Stride? Well, it's just one of 30+ games (23 of which are already finished and playable) that'll immediately be yours if you hand LA Game Space a pithy 15 of your bacteria-and-filth-ridden Human Dollars. Experimental Game…

Rude Health: Involuntary Runner

Disclaimer: I am rubbish at this. Terrible. Watching me attempt to get my head around Involuntary Runner is like watching a monkey build an atom bomb. I'm honestly surprised I haven't accidentally set myself on fire as I clumsily attempt to coax my runner into action. The goal is simple: you have a runner, a man who you have to help run as far as…

The QWOPlympics: Realistic Summer Sports Simulator

Here is an intensely silly thing. I imagine you're aware of QWOP, the purposefully-impossible-to-control runner with its eyes on the prize and/or ground. Meanwhile, I'm relatively certain - given that you are presumably a resident of planet earth - that you know of the Olympics, that big throwy, runny, leapy, swimmy thing we humans do every couple years in an attempt to stave off the…

Neigh Chance: CLOP

In real life, equestrianising is probably harder than running since controlling one's own flesh-stilts should be a lot easier than controlling a large animal clenched between the thighs. That said, CLOP, QWOP's brand new four-legged variant, isn't as tough as its jelly-limbed ancestor. Maybe that's because no one is riding the unicorn that's clopping its way across the countryside, maybe that's because of the grace…

Epic Flail: 2QWOP Adds Multiplayer To QWOP

I remember where I was when I first heard about QWOP, because I was in the offices of a certain other PC gaming publication, working for The Man. Now I work for A Man, that man being me. Stop looking at me like that! I am so. Anyway, QWOP popped up on someone's screen and we all gathered around watching as something as simple as…

QWOP A Load Of Poleriders

Poleriders is from Bennet Foddy, the delightful academic who has you thrashing your limbs to run 100m in QWOP. It's an interesting take on the traditional and noble art of the pole vault, adding a ball and an opponent. I personally think "Pole-Lolting" is a more accurate title, because it's one of the funniest things I've played in a while.

Not Drowning But Flexing: GIRP

Suddenly everywhere today: this brilliant but monstrous physics game about rock-climbing, drowning and muscle-flexing. Indie browser game/punishment GIRP is vaguely akin to sleepy mobile puzzle title Ancient Frog (itself now on PC too), but driven by desperation, confusion, horror and something that feels like genuine physical exhaustion. Clever. Tight. Panic-inducing. Sportsmanlike nonetheless.

Born To Run: QWOP

We haven't posted about QWOP yet, have we? It's the webgame that's turned up in most of my game related conversations for the last few week or so, so it's probably best we give it at least a nod. Its a running game, with direct control of thighs and calves, and is the most ill-conceived attempt to directly simulate human experience since Trespasser's sinister floating…
