What's in Cruel World?


EXPERIMENTAL PLATFORMING MECHANICS

Learn how a platformer controls like you've never controlled a platformer before! Enjoy unparalleled freedom (roll and bounce and do weird shit!), and a thousand opportunities to klutz yourself into a pit of spikes.


TEXT-INTERFACED TERMINALS

I'm in love with the image of a game and a terminal side-by-side, and I finally got it working in Cruel World-- HACK, MINE, and KISS various objects in order to be allowed to save your game, to unlock doors to otherwise inaccessible places, and to read descriptions of the mechanics of the game itself.


A PERSISTENT WORLD THAT CAN ONLY GET WORSE

A singular, shared server records your accomplishments and your every selfish action.

Will you protect yourself from the selfish actions of other players by taking selfish actions yourself, or will you keep faith and fight the good fight, no matter the personal consequences?

We all know the world is dying, but who will take the blame?

And of course the hundreds of players who have HACK'd, MINE'd, and KISS'd every corner of Cruel World, turning it into the living landscape it is today.
