The Impossible Game Has Landed on PC
by Proto Foe
The Impossible Game has arrived on Steam thanks to the Greenlight Community--they have spoken. It has been a long five-year journey for the indie developer, FlukeDude. TIG started out on Xbox Live Arcade, became a best-seller, then moved on to other platforms such as PSN, App Store and Play Store.
What do you get from playing The Impossible Game, other than a severe case of potty mouth? Well, you get to listen to a heart pounding techno beat, dry eye lids, blisters on your fingers, and a worn down space bar.
The PC and PlayStation versions of The Impossible Game were made possible through of collaboration British indie developer, FlukeDude, and Czech Republic developer Grip Games.
Impossible Game fans have been asking for a PC version and a level editor for years, and it's thanks to their support on Greenlight that I'm finally able to make both a reality. I can't wait to see what they come up with.
What does the community think?
I took to the Steam community to find out how they were getting on with the freshly released game. I am in shock to see people with four hours gameplay and no requests for medical aid in sight; check out their comments below.
After the first few fails you feel that you now got the jump mastered. You're not 100 attempts into the level. You're determined to beat this level if it kills you. Finally, after 1,000 tries, you make it over that final triple spike and you beat the level. It feels like you have just won an olympic gold medal and the millions are chanting your name

My personal favourite:
I quite enjoy bouncing suicidal squares on their voyage to death.
SPOILERS: This game is Impossible. Space Bar BE WARNED!
10/10 Would throw my PC out the window again. Would play again too.

Now if you will excuse me, I must go play Dark Souls 1 and 2 at the same time. It'll be a walk in the park now. How about you, are you going to play The Impossible Game?Originally Published May. 9th 2014
