I talked about Suicide Guy last week. This game is not for everyone but it is very unique. Check out my review below to find out what Suicide Guy is and if I liked it.
Suicide Guy starts with a guy on a couch, he falls asleep, gets himself “killed” in a first person controlled dream and then wakes up. He falls back to sleep but then he needs to wake up again so he has to get himself killed over and over again in order to walk up. Sounds strange right? This game is totally strange and yet its also very interesting.
Each dream in Suicide Guy is different and its own unique solutions. These solutions always end up with your guy dying. He dies differently each time. Suicide Guy doesn’t actually shows the “deaths” though. Each time he dies, the object of his death is coming toward him and he blacks out. The game is violent without actually being violent.
The puzzles in each dream range from simple to a little bit more complex. Some dreams are short and others are longer. There are even some dreams that are inspired by other games. I’ll let you discover those on your own. No spoilers here!
Suicide Guy has pretty good controls. The jumping in this game isn’t perfect but it never is in first person games. As for the game’s graphics, they are really good. The game has a nice cel-shaded look to it. It is a very cartoony game.
Overall, Suicide Guy is interesting. It won’t be for everyone. Some people will be turned off by the title or the subject matter of killing somebody (even in a dream). For those who can get past those issues, they’ll find a oddly unique game. I don’t think theres anything else on the Nintendo Switch like this game. I like Suicide Guy.
Suicide Guy gets an 8.0 out of 10.
