Have You Played… You Have to Burn the Rope

10 01 2009


Many people were very surprised by one of the announced IGF finalists – including the creator himself – namely ‘You Have To Burn The Rope’. But really, it’s not that surprising at all.

Usually innovation and uniqueness would go hand in hand, but Mazapan decided to hell with innovation! Let’s make the most simple, self-explanatory game imaginable, then throw in the fact that it’s impossible to die and, just to make it that slight bit easier, tell the player exactly what to do.

And YHTBTR was born. It’s worth playing just for that song at the end. I haven’t witnessed a single person who hasn’t raised a smile at the ‘climax’ to the game, so why don’t you give it a go and prove me wrong.
