APE OUT release announcement

Hey everyone,

It's been a year and a half since I launched Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy, and today I'm able to share the release of APE OUT, which is one of the things I've been working on since then. This time it's not a 'Bennett Foddy' game, but something I've been working on with two of my good friends, as an artist and level designer.

Here's the official description from Devolver:
APE OUT is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom.

Well anyway, I'm obviously biased but I love this game - and I think if you like Getting Over It you'll probably like this one too. The designer, Gabe, is not as cruel as I am but it is pretty close.

You can get it on Steam:

About This Game

A game I made
For a certain kind of person

To hurt them.


Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy is a punishing climbing game, a homage to Jazzuo's 2002 B-Game classic 'Sexy Hiking'. You move the hammer with the mouse, and that's all there is. With practice, you'll 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 didn't know you were capable of.
  • Magical reward awaits hikers who reach the top.

Epilepsy warning: contains some surprising elements.
