About

In The Dummy Experiment you are a test dummy subjected to a horrible experiment by a mad scientist, Dr. Strohmann. When you start up the game your goal is to pick a dummy of your choice. On your way to the experiment the grappling hook (that picked up the dummy you chose) somehow loses grip. When the dummy’s feet reach the ground, the test dummy suddenly stands up. From here on, you are in control of the dummy. The narrator reacts surprised but motivate you (the dummy) to go for it and escape the facility. As a dummy that just got his first experience in walking you use your balance to move away and escape the horrible experiment you were exposed to. Not only do you use this balance to get moving, but also in order to dodge objects and face obstacles that you will encounter. While moving it is important to keep your balance so you won't fall over. Once you move you can't stop. Stay focused, and remember... Rushing around the terrain will only make it harder.while Playing, You Will “Simply” walk to your goal. Get Frustrated. You will ask yourself why you are playing this. Tell yourself that it is actually a pretty nice game. Be satisfied once you reach a checkpoint. Hear nice feedback from the narrator. A big special thanks to our narrator Sam Lopez. You can reach out to him with the contact information you can find on our community page.

The Dummy Experiment reviews and comments

Early access review warning: this game is a CHALLENGE! This game is a "challenge" type game of the same style as "getting over it", except that one to another good concept, keep the balance! You will have to follow a course and avoid obstacles, while keeping, which will be particularly difficult... So it will be a good game for the most challengers of you, and a hell for the more ragy of you:D!!

Early Access Review I don't understand how people prefer games like DOTA or Warframe having these jewels. I'm taking my childhood. The Adrenaline of controlling the puppet, feeling as you gradually acquire the skill to overcome the levels, is something great. It is Not pay 2 win and the truth would be good to add more characters. Although with the amount already present the degree of replayability is Elevadisimo. The soundtrack leaves Chrono triggers in shame. And The plot exceeds everything that has been created and built.

This game is very difficult. If you don't like the challenge or the extreme difficulty, go your way. On the other hand if you are looking for more complex difficulties than "getting over it" and like retry and retry, try the experiment. Because your worst enemy, it will be this dummy that you run (and XO objects) because sometimes it will want to go in the void to oppose it from where you want (like going to the right it will go left) randomly. The story is not complicated, on the other hand it is only in English so if English is not your forte, it's a bit of a pity (even if it is not a complex English). For the controls, I'm checking out the keyboard because you'll have a lot but a lot of trouble directing the dummy. As the menu advises you when the game starts, play with a gamepad. Finally, when you do the tutorial (which is not obligatory but that I strongly advise you) do not get used especially not to jump to slow you because once the game start this technique will not work anymore. I hope you will have fun (and you will also like me XP) and especially keep your composure because the game will have to ask patience and retry retry. Besides I have a small request to do: unless a tip, the top table scores at scores totally infeasible as 1m43 to finish the game (I tried and my best tamps was 10m and some). It is a bit of a pleasure to try to train in a good place.
