It turns out there's only one way to improve Bennet Foddy's Getting Over It, and that's to exchange cauldron and mallet for motors and asphalt. A 15-person mapping team has channelled all the grief and rage from Foddy's hit fall 'em up into a 15-story tower that genuinely hurts my eyes to look at.
There's a $500+ prize pool to be shared between the first three people who can complete the damn thing. The map came out five days ago, and as yet nobody has.
Sickening, isn't it? The track, Deep Dip, has absolutely no checkpoints whatsoever, but it does complete with Foddy-style philosophical musings that accompany significant plummets. A necessary salve, endorsed by the man himself.
Here's Trackmania event organiser BuckleysPants breaking down how the prize pool will be shared. He also mentions the mappers aren't currently eligible to claim the prize, though that may well change "after some time has passed if nobody has beaten the map".
While the main prize hasn't been claimed, a $100 bonus has been awarded to "Larstm" for intentionally feeding himself to "the snake".
The snake had been fed intentionally. @Larstm_ , the 3rd person to reach the snake has decided to ride down the snake just to prevent @Bren_TM2 from riding down it first.— BuckleysPants (@BuckleysPants) November 21, 2022
But its okay, maybe you will fall in for free the next time you get up there. :) pic.twitter.com/qEM0APZlNk
This is actually a sequel to another Getting Over It-inspired map, Bennet Foddy ate my CPs, which is reportedly more forgiving. Relatively, like. I imagine it will still eat you for breakfast.
