If the title didn’t give it away, Cute Things Dying Violently contains at least two things: Cute things and a lot of very bloody violence, but what is it all about?
At some point, Alex “AlejandroDaJ” Jordan (Twitter) decided to see if tasking players with manoeuvring a bunch of critters through hazardous environments to safety past traps ranging from spikes and buzzsaws to fire and lightning. This turned out to be a great idea and it didn’t simply look good on paper either, because on August 24 2011, Cute Things Dying Violently was released on XBOX Live Indie Games.
And what started out as an XBLIG smash hit became much more yesterday, when the PC port was released with quite a few additions and enhancements, including.. wait for it.. A LEVEL EDITOR!
- A complete graphics overhaul from the Xbox version
- 60 singleplayer levels
- 6 challenge levels
- 24 Achievements
- Built-in Level Editor
