“Give Up” is a game… made by a psychopath. I’m not sure of his/her name, but I have no doubt that they’re insane.

“Give Up” is a 2D side scrolling game that’s a mix of Portal and masochism. You go through test chambers – 40 of them – that only get harder as you advance. They introduce you to new mechanics as you go on, each with the singular goal of murdering you. It starts with platforms, then spikes, then cannons, then lasers, then saw blades, and then – according to myth – rockets. I myself have only reached the 34th level.

Though it can be beat, as shown by my friend Charlie. Throughout the entire game, the little security camera taunts you relentlessly. It feeds you a bunch of insults, telling you to just give up, that it isn’t worth continuing on.

On top of that, there’s a giant GIVE UP button near the bottom of the screen, just waiting for you to press it. It’s a great brain exercise if you’re interested. It’s a “fun” way to teach yourself to be aware of everything going on around you. That said, it may also make you want to kill yourself.

So play with caution. LINK
