MOVE and JUMP with arrow keys ! You can TRIPLE JUMP :) !



He Almost Killed Me is a tough 2D platformer in which you control a bouncy character navigating a mysterious world...

This game represents the difficulties I (and other creative people) face when it comes down to making something ! Giving up, doubt, comparison, these are dangers creators battle through in order to bring something to life...

This game, I almost killed it, I almost gave up on it, this is its story !

movement and graphics are good but the writing is terrible


favorite out of all ur games so far


Super creative theme for a NOT very basic platformer. I really enjoyed it and advanced through the incrementally rising difficulty on many levels. I am currently stuck and feel a MegaMania zigzag zinging irons kinda vibe with the script "Born and Killed the Same Day"/"Never Saw the Light of Day" bit with the diagonal mines. The checkpoints work for me, but only for a couple deaths, then I revert back to a previous checkpoint for some reason. And I don't have a saved game when logging back in. But overall, I love this game. Well done!
