Roam a tiny island stuck on a sludge covered planet as an upcoming tagger GHOST set on staking their claim amongst the graffiti elite. Traverse the corporately branded landscape, chat up other taggers, and discover secrets and idiots along the way. Will you become the king of the island and tag every open inch, infiltrate sludge-pumping corporation GLUG to find a way out, or just take it all down in flames with you? Expand

    Honestly, there isn’t a whole lot to be said about Sludge Life without giving away its more memorably bizarre bits, of which there are many. It’s a twisted, hellish, yet surprisingly charming playground that you’ll want to spend a good (if small) chunk of time in, soaking in the off-kilter surrounds, humor and visuals. For a game that basically revolves around a filthy hellhole, there’s still a lot of care that was put into making it a unique and fun hellhole and it shows.

    Sludge Life is a unique game, where freedom and rebellion are the key. We feel the controls are not good enough, considering how precise we need to be sometimes, although eventually we can get used to them.

    Sludge Life is graffiti-themed a first-person 3D platformer that works really well and is fun to play. Its emphasis on climbing high structures and getting to hard-to-reach areas to drop your tags makes the tough gameplay feel worthwhile. The controls can be a bit finicky, but there’s a lot of fun to be had here. There’s also a nice blend of real-world commentary and vulgar humor to keep things interesting.

    Sludge Life feels like the video game version of being under the influence, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While it feels like it might be a little too wrapped up in its own aesthetics at times, it still remembers that it’s a game first and not a video from the weird part of YouTube. Having it available for free for the moment means that there’s little excuse for you to not at least wade in the smoggy muck for a spell.

    The world of the game may be small, but it brims with a weird sense of life.

    Sludge Life is a very short game that is surreal and crass, but it serves as a very engaging art piece for players who are interested in its message.

    a psychedelic platform game, it is one of the weirdest titles that i played, but being a weird game doesnt mean that is a bad game, this isa psychedelic platform game, it is one of the weirdest titles that i played, but being a weird game doesnt mean that is a bad game, this is one of the best short games that i know, and the feeling that gives u the island and the characters in it, are the best for a vandalism game.
    another important factor is the humor of the game this is funny for how crazy it is.
    & the music in the game fits right with the environment

You have to keep in mind this is a really short game (3h for 3 endings). The game is very artsy and pleasing to discover; each NPC is weirder than the last. The music bops. Great relaxing experience. It has some open world elements, side quests, platforming and items unlocks. It feels like a one shot experience, and a nice one. Expand

Reminded me a lot of Pony Island in tone, mixed with a bit of angsty, late-ninties-playstation visuals. You're not gonna log 2,000 hours into it but it's more than worth playing at least once. Very Speedrunable. Expand

The main plot is kinda short, which actually may be a plus, because the game may start be boring after more than 3-4 hours Expand

Both the slightly disturbing graphics as well as the grazy characters are fun and the gameplay is intuitive and entertaining. Expand
