What is Getting Over it with Bennett Foddy about?
Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a punishing climbing game, a homage to Jazzuos 2002 B-Game classic Sexy Hiking. You move the hammer with the mouse, and thats all there is. With practice, youll be able to jump, swing, climb and fly. Great mysteries and a wonderful reward await the master hikers who reach the top of the mountain.
To quote Jazzuo himself: "The hiking action is very similar to way you would do it in real life, remember that and you will do well".
Climb up an enormous mountain with nothing but a hammer and a pot.
Listen as I make philosophical observations about the problem at hand.
Between 2 and ∞ hours of agonizing gameplay, depending. The median time to finish for my playtesters was 5 hours, but the mean was closer to ∞.
Lose all your progress, over and over.
Feel new types of frustration you didnt know you were capable of.
Magical reward awaits hikers who reach the top.
