A series of minimalist platforming games by Fred Wood with music by James Bennett.
Enter the mechanical wasteland of LOVE 3, a precision platformer that puts you in control of the last surviving hero, fiveEight. Traverse through 25 minimalistic, but challenging levels. Face rigorous obstacles as you search for hope in a world devoid of it. Unearth hidden secrets and dodge certain doom to the vibrant and catchy soundtrack by James Bennett--tailored to each level. Compete with other players on the Speedrun Leaderboards and push your skills to the limit. Will you be the fastest survivor to brave the dangers that await?
SET YOUR OWN CHECKPOINTS
Respawn instantly after every loss of life by placing custom checkpoints with the press of a button. Adapt and diversify the challenges: Limit your checkpoints, number of lives, toggle slow motion, or try out different game modes.
HIDDEN COLLECTABLES AND AREAS
Explore every nook and cranny of the apocalyptic, mechanical wasteland. You'll find secret buttons, entrances, and... survivors?? Remember to keep your eyes peeled, as what you'll find will influence the end of the game!
Includes every level from LOVE, LOVE 2: kuso, and the original 2007 version of <3.
kuso is the sequel to LOVE, and maintains the same focus on creating a fair challenge for players to complete and master. You have the ability to run, jump, and leave your own checkpoint. Make your way through acid, long jumps, disappearing platforms, bouncers, giant saws, and much more in this dreadful mechanical world. If you're looking for a game that'll challenge your platforming skills, give you something excellent to listen to, and a game to master, kuso is the game for you.
