Congratulations to NYU Game Center Professor Bennett Foddy, Winner of the 2018 IGF Nuovo Award!

 

Professor Foddy took home the 2018 IGF Nuovo Award, the annual award for innovation and experimentation, for his most recent release Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy. The game is a punishing climbing game, a homage to Jazzuo’s 2002 B-Game classic ‘Sexy Hiking’. You move a man in a pot holding a hammer with the mouse, and that’s all there is. With practice, you’ll be able to jump, swing, climb and fly. Great mysteries and a wonderful reward await the master hikers who reach the top of the mountain. The game was originally a commission from Humble Bundle, and is now available to purchase and play through Steam and the App Store.
