Factual Things

Description

Last Stitch Goodnight is a side scrolling action adventure that violently embraces a new modern mythology. After you survive a near-death, out-of-body experience, you are kidnapped by a doctor who is experimenting on people who satisfy certain… criteria. Escaping the doctor’s death trap of a mansion will require new weapons, new powers, and a strong stomach for facing science gone bad.

Features

  • Lovingly handcrafted adventure written, drawn, coded, and designed by Ben Cook
  • A giant mansion to explore, full of hidden secrets and unique locations (Laboratories! Furnaces! Bedrooms! Bathrooms! Movie theater!)
  • Scores of cranky, cranky enemies ranging from irate office workers to malcontent robots
  • Multipurpose tools used to interact with the world or bludgeon enemies, depending on your whims.  Sometimes a screwdriver dismantles a bed, and sometimes it shivs a punk
  • A suite of upgradable powers that allow the player to fully explore every shadowy corner, even the ones with spiders
  • Towering bosses that will push your skill and creativity, forcing you to use every trick you have learned
  • A spanning story that breaks down 4 individuals in ways that can’t be fixed with bandages

History

Ben has been making games since he was 7, although back then they were made on a Mac Plus and were mostly about pterodactyls and spacemen.  In 2011 Well Bred Rhino was born, along with it’s first official game, All the Bad Parts.  Since then, Ben has been experimenting with ways to combine action, adventure, and story, which has all been leading up to his newest game, Last Stitch Goodnight.  LSG will be released on Steam and PS4 on May 9th, 2017.

Quotes

“I was not disappointed in the slightest with the direction Well Bred Rhino’s modern horror inspired Metroidvania took as it once again brilliantly tackled the enigma of life and death through the imagination of one of the most creative developers ever to grace the indie scene.”
-Gaming Inferno

“The game’s eight bosses are the highlight though and, in fact, are some of my favorite in recent memory, with most requiring some form of mid-battle problem solving to determine their weakness before they can be defeated.”
-God is a Geek

“Last Stitch Goodnight has some excellent puzzle design that provides a nice challenge, while never being to the point of frustration. They usually involve using items and your abilities, but they always have a unique solution.”
-PS4 Experts

“So many small details went into creating this title and it really shows. If you are a lover of amazing stories, great soundtracks, action, loads of content, humor, and a dedicated Indie developer, then this is a game you need to play.”
-Indie in the Blood

“I like the way the story unfolds, and how everything ties together, especially in the final act. I’m also a big fan of how each weapon has a dual purpose and how you’ll need to use each one to solve puzzles around the mansion. And while on the topic, it’s worth mentioning the game is long and filled with a lot of secrets to uncover.”
-Defunct Games

“OW ow that hurts! WHAA! YES! YESSSS!! WE DID IT GUYS!” “This game is amazing, I had a lot of fun playing it!” “9 out of 10.”
-Streamer DevilDogg of The Drastik Measure
