Cute Things Dying Violently Press Release

Posted by Alex Jordan on

Oh hi, I didn't see you there. I'm an Alex and I make game things:

ApathyWorks' Cute Things Dying Violently is coming to Xbox Live Indie Games (for 80msp) on August 24th as part of the Indie Games Summer Uprising! We're talking about a seminal moment here, up there with Grover Cleveland's inaugural address in terms of historical impact.

What is CTDV? Well, it's a game about Critters. And the Critters need your help! You flick them around each level to get them safely to the elevator. Between the Critters and their salvation lie puzzles and a ton of murderous objects such as spikes, buzzsaws, fire, and a homicidal, bucket-headed robot. It's up to you to save these Cute Things and prevent them from Dying Violently.

In addition to a singleplayer campaign of 60 mind-bending, reflex-testing levels, players can also earn certain Achieve Mints: sweet, leafy green awards that unlock up to 6 special challenge levels where you can hone your murderous abilities. Cute Things Dying Violently also features competitive local multiplayer, where two players face off to try and save their own Critters while simultaneously killing their opponents' with a variety of amusing powerups. Players can also try out the built-in Level Editor and use it to create and play their own (inferior) singleplayer and multiplayer levels.

If you are interested in getting a free download code to review and/or lambast CTDV, please email me or tweet at me (http://twitter.com/#!/AlejandroDaJ/) and I will provide you with a code on or after August 24th. (That's when Microsoft releases the limited codes, because they're stingy buggers.)



That's all for now! I hope to see you playing my game! I'd even settle for seeing my name on the subject line of a very nice Cease and Desist letter. See you August 24th!
