Getting Over it with Bennett Foddy is a surprisingly tricky physics game brought to you by the twisted mind of Bennett Foddy. While you may or may not be familiar with his work, he is responsible for creating experimental games such as Plan Bee, and more recently QWOP. Initially launched on October 6th, 2017 as a ‘Humble Monthly,’ then on Steam in early December. His latest creation is one that is getting a lot of attention in the gaming community.
Getting Over it was inspired by Jazzuo’s 2002 B-Game classic ‘Sexy Hiking.’ In this case, your character sits in a cauldron and must navigate obstacles as you climb a steep mountain using only a giant sledgehammer. As a result, every move you make must be well thought out and precise. Consequently, every mistake you make can result in you tumbling your way to the bottom of the mountain where you will have to start all over again. You could say the further you climb, the further you fall. Much the same as is life, you can never give up; you must keep your head held high, get back in your cauldron and climb that mountain again, with a sledgehammer.
You can expect many challenges on your journey.
As well, be prepared for several significant setbacks.
By setbacks we mean, start over…from the beginning.
Since the road ahead is paved in misery, you need to embrace the suck, own it. Much in the same way, you should celebrate your accomplishments no matter how small and insignificant they are.
Your successes will be that much sweeter.
And for those who manage to conquer the mountain, great mysteries will be revealed, and spectacular rewards will be granted unto you.
