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.

This game cracks me up. I'm so bad at controls in video games that I'm already used to failing an area over and over lol. I'm so glad there wasn't any time pressure (or enemies). Without those stressors, this turned out to be a genuinely relaxing game for my brain and screen circles. I love the cool and beautiful setting.

Don't listen to people complaining about the controls. Yes it is hard and has a learning curve and that's the point. The point isn't really to beat it, it's how you respond when you lose. You can see the passion put into every piece of terrain, Everytime you fall the developer hits you with a philosophy line. One of the most challenging games I've ever played, it's rewarding to see yourself improve with each run. What took you 2 hours one day might take you 5 min the next. This should be 5/5

Dang, this game has been quite the journey. Gave up the first time I tried it and I picked it up again around 3 weeks ago. Was determined to finish it this time and I finally managed to. I love this game's design and aesthetic, and I love how such simple controls can create such dynamic situations and gameplay. Also, despite what I've seen elsewhere, I actually found the commentary to be a great addition. The controls are a bit wonky sometimes, but overall would totally recommend getting it!
