13. Sh*t Game

Sh*t Game is a short platformer created by the developer of Space Barnacle and Standard Bits. An ending is included, though gameplay mechanics are indescribable as they are not governed by standard platforming design rules.

"Sh*t Game was really a fun exercise in making a terrible, terrible game, with as many clichés in the indie game scene as I could think of. Part of the idea was to make a glitchy game where the glitches became gameplay elements that you had to master.

I started it with Sh*t Game as the name, and all throughout the short time making it I tried to think of alternate titles, but I couldn't think of anything more potent, so I just released it as that. Think of it as an endearing nickname.

In Sh*t Game, the last level is scored with a terrible standard MIDI cover of the U96 techno cover of the theme song to Das Boot. And at the top of the last level, there's a hidden submarine." - Mark
