Description

Hey kids! Do you like failure? Are you suspicious of success? Do you smile at the thought of "accidental" electrocution? Then boy have we got the game for you! Introducing: Cute Things Dying Violently, a game where nothing bad happens. CTDV is all about hapless Critters, and the Critters need your help! Launch them around to get them safely out of each level. Dodge all sorts of lethal goodies like spikes, buzzsaws, and fire, and use a variety of wacky items to pull it off. And if a few dozen (or hundred) of them get turned into charred, smoking husks in your attempt to save them... something something omelettes and broken eggs. Broken, bloody eggs.

History

Oh boy, do we have history. CTDV was released on Xbox Live Indie Games in 2011 as part of the Indie Games Summer Uprising and on PC (Desura) in 2012. It is the game that refuses to die.
