Smudged Cat suffers ‘Growing Pains’ after ‘Shuggy’

Hot on the heels of one of the more charming games of the year — The Adventures of Shuggy — Smudged Cat Games has announced Growing Pains for a September release on Xbox Live Indie Games. Looking a bit like a music visualizer, Growing Pains puts you in control of “‘The Vessel’, a continuously growing dude who must negotiate his way through each map before his ass gets wedged in a tight spot.”

Surprisingly, this isn’t even one of the many gameplay styles from Shuggy but it sounds and looks like it would’ve fit in nicely. I can already imagine the frantic horror of perfectly platforming my way through a level’s nooks and crannies only to wind up swelling too large in a passageway to reach that checkered flag.
