QWOP creator releases CLOP
Makes even less sense than the first one
The creator of QWOP, the physics-based running game that quickly went viral due to being insanely impossible and just insane in general, has now released a spiritual successor, CLOP.
Bennett Foddy’s games are simple in concept, but challenge the player to master awkward controls in order to do mundane tasks such as walking.
The original, QWOP, was named for the keys you use to control a track runner’s thighs and shins. The game usually ended with a nose-dive into the track and a broken keyboard. Those who actually managed to make the runner do an awkward hop-scotch along the track were revered by their peers (or so we liked to believe).
This was followed by GIRP, which required you to climb a cliff-face by grabbing handholds represented by keyboard keys. This game also usually ended in tears.
Now Foddy has given us CLOP, which is very similar in concept to QWOP, and just as difficult. However, instead of a runner, you are in control of a unicorn with an inner-ear problem. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to rescue a young virgin for a master who never tires of insulting you everytime you mess up. Which, if you’ve been following along, you will know is going to happen a lot.
Confusingly, you use the K, H, J and L keys to control the unicorn. But give the man a break, it’s hard to work with no vowels.
If you’re into epileptic unicorns and snotty, olde English insults (and let’s be honest, who isn’t?), give the game a try here.
