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.

GameLuVideo: The Adventures of Shuggy (XBLA)

It’s our first ever feature video presentation! Haphazardly dubbed a GameLuVideo, it’s the name that will accompany the myriad of things I plan on posting; playthroughs, “quick look” style videos, glitches, easter eggs, and any other random video I capture and produce.

This first one is a 20-minute look at The Adventures of Shuggy, the once-mysterious Xbox Live Arcade game that was finally released back on June 15th. It’s a clever mix of cerebral Portal-ish puzzling with Super Meat Boy style gameplay and I kinda love it. Flip the HD switch, let it buffer (because YouTube gets slower by the day it seems), and enjoy!
