The Corpulets were voted the number one food-based cult by Cultist Monthly, and they want you to join their ranks. Will you pass their initiation and spend the rest of your days sipping Merlot? Or will you be slaughtered and eaten?

Five endings ranging from disgusting to crunchy.

I knew it! You have plenty potential with this multiples-endings premise. This semi-puzzle game with humor was fun and hilarious, and the music is great.

What a ROUSE! Showing the 2 people with their arms in the positions RUUL. But that's not the secret handshake sequence at all! What a SCAM that is! It's all a red herring people. If you're sitting there straining yourself saying things like "WELL, he's using his RIGHT arm to point to HIS left and his LEFT arm is UP and her RIGHT arm is pointing UP and her LEFT arm is pointing RIGHT" or "WELL, they're facing each other, so it shouldn't be the order that I see them from left to right, maybe it's LUUR or ULRU". NO, it's all a lie! Don't even try to figure out their hand positions and decipher the secret handshake. I'm not going to spoil it, I see hundreds have gotten the medal, I'm also not going to give further hints since there are only 256 combinations possible anyway and I've already eliminated a few of them for you, but I'll tell you that if you're trying to analyze their arms, you're barking up the wrong tree, nor is it something that happens in the room with the guillotine when you're at the table, because it gives you much more than 4 arrow keys in the sequence. the way you get the code is something different altogether.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to reserve my copy of How to tenderly cook goat anus by Ida Wurst on Barnes and Noble because f*ck Amazon.

That music, it really gets to me. It's a real earworm. Now I have to watch Rebecca Black's Friday several times to purge my mind. Thanks for that. Make sure to play with the sound off.
