Developer's Description

The game is based on my 2009 prototype. I have decided to rework it in a substantial way: instead of overcoming horizontal obstacles and progressing sideways, I’ve changed the game to be a vertical climber, which suits the theme of corpse-climbing much better. The game was built using my all-time-favourite Flixel engine.

Aim upwards to reach the exit and progress to next level. And if you can't get any higher, just leave it to your successors - your dead carcass will serve as a stepping stone to get to your destination.
