Introducing Cute Things Die Violently! The game where cute things die … violently!

This indie game was created by ApathyWorks, headed up by a developer named Alex Jordan. The goal of the game is as follows: fling these adorable little creatures to a certain point in the level in order to “rescue” them. If you fail to do so appropriately, they either get impaled by spikes, sawed in half, bathed in flames, electrocuted, you name it! Dodge these deadly threats using a variety of wacky items and hope for the best!

The game was originally released as a mobile application and was later greenlit on Steam and brought to the PC, and is now available on XBox Live Indie Games as well. There are 60 levels available in single-player, as well as other challenge levels, and let’s not forget the built-in level editor, where you can create your very own chaotically destructive level and share it with other players in the Steam community to try out.

Even though it may look like it is very similar to, or a copy of, Angry Birds, the two games have very little in common, except for the use of trajectory and angles to fling your little creatures. It’s a fun new, albeit morbid, twist on a similar mechanic, although the goal is not to destroy the fortresses of naughty piggies to get their bacon… I mean, retrieve eggs. (But seriously, why not both?)

About Michael du Plessis

My favourite gaming genres are Survival Horror, Indie and RPGMaker, RPG, MMO and MOBA/RTS based games, especially if there is a good story behind it all. I started out in the Geek world by being a Spiderman fan from a very young age already, and then started gaming on PlayStation and a PC not long afterward. The first games I remember playing are Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, and even Spiderman! I then started getting a taste for Survival Horror on PC by playing Aliens vs. Predator 2. Since then the bug bit me. My favourite Survival Horrors include Amnesia, Outlast, Dead Space, and Five Nights and Freddy's. I'm a fan of cosplaying and started cosplaying in 2015 at Smallville Comics' opening of their 2nd store. I've been a huge fan of anime since an early age, and my favourite shows include Fairy Tail, Bleach, Naruto, and most recently; Tokyo Ghoul. I started doing Let's Plays as a hobby in 2013 and am happy to be able to continue with this passion with you guys!
