And there was me thinking that games should be rewarding!
QWOP is amusing, my record is -0.6m. I seem to have the knack of flipping backwards but not running forwards.
Interviewing the QWOP creator about how to write video games is sort of like interviewing a random reddit poster about how to write a novel, or interviewing someone who made an image meme about how to compose a beautiful landscape photograph, or interviewing a random BoingBoing poster about how to interview game developers.
So you should maybe google Dr. Bennett Foddy.
QWOP COSTUME! (Comic Con 2011)
that was dumb. I would assume the basic character in a game would be able to walk.
I just wasted 20 minutes on QWOP assuming that it would be possible to at least learn how to walk. My record is 3 meters.
Alternate WO and QP, leaving time for the foot to hit the ground.
