  • Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy
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.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Do you know what awaits atop the mountain in Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy? Past all the nonsensical detritus, and after every snippet of Foddy’s philosophical musing? I do. Not because I climbed it, obviously. I’m a coward who relies on the internet for answers. If you’re still convinced you’re going to get their under your own steam one day, read no further. (...

I heard you don t like our podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. But have you listened to 76 hours of it yet? Honestly, mate, it opens up after that. The 76-hour mark, that s when it clicks . But I understand if you don t have the time. Just skip ahead to this week s episode, in which we re talking about games about which we changed our minds. Listen in for the platformers we prematurely pooh-poohed and the Souls games that sucked before they were super. (more…)

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, a...

Screenshot via “MathChief” on YouTube, whose video is below Grappling hooks make getting around easy. Hopping into a hard iron cauldron and navigating only with a two-handed pick? That’s true mastery. Sexy Hiking was the last game I expected to see referenced in Just Cause 4, today’s AAA explodathon du jour, but that’s exactly what we’ve got, give or take one degree of separation. Hidden up an innocuous mountainside in Just Cause 4 is a mini-game based on Gett...
