A vertical speedrun platformer and a parody to Meat Boy. This brutal wall-jump affair gets harder and harder and even more harder as you progress through the 42 murderous levels - all mixed up with a nerdy story

- Music composed by Dennis Keitel
- Entry for StencylJam2012
- Featuring the random giggling guy and his cake secret(!)
- Coming soon to iOS... NOT

Watch the credits for cheatcodes and hints (press "i w c" at the same time in the level select screen) :)
Thanks to all people and cats who made this possible.

If you wanna host this game, please use this version: /n3rd-boy/

Kudos to Team Meat.

UPDATE - 2012-06-24
- reduced wall stickyness
- minor bugfixes

Thanks so much guys for all the feedback and the exposure on Newgrounds.

I found this to be a fairly enjoyable game. What I liked most about it was probably how good the graphics are. It just seemed to be this really interesting world that you created. As expected, you have to be really careful with not hitting the sides of the spikes and stuff. You usually have to slowly go down (or up) each level in order to properly advance. It's probably the best game I've played all day.

I like how you have this really macabre music. It seems like it's been awhile since I played a game featured for StencylJam. It's probably a bit too long, but it is fairly satisfying in the end. It's interesting to have all this hopping and stuff going around. I appreciate the good thoughts.

"it is fairly satisfying in the end". Wow, you actually did play through the whole game? Did you also find out how to play with the secret girl character? In case you didn't, PM me :) Thanks for the kind words.

Never in my life has a game made me this frustrated, kudos. But I didn't like the whole sliding deal, it can really fuck you over in the end.

Thanks, I'm forwarding your praises to the musician. It would be great, if you could PM me about the "glitchy at times" stuff with some more details. Thanks.

The game was based on a good idea, however, what made me stop was the walljump. It was really annoying that you would just stick to a wall and move like a slug when you touched it. It would be better if you would stick to a wall for as long ass you press the arrow key in its direction (for example --> ||) and you should fall fast if you release it. It bugged me that at the moment i touched wall, i had to wait until i was past the spike on the wall next to me, instead of just falling past it. If you would improve that, it would be a good game i think.

Thank you. Due to all the feedback I reduced the stickyness and made some other little changes.
