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.

    Brief and more of an experience than anything else, Sludge Life is a chill way to spend a couple of hours.

    Devolver often delivers weird games that take familiar ideas or mechanics and deliver cool twists on them. Loop Hero is a very good example of how this approach can succeed. Sludge Life has good tunes and a new presentation style but it needed more in the way of either gameplay or narrative to deliver a truly cool experience.

    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.

It's a walking simulator with spectacular visuals and a good message. Essentially a fun little sandbox to poke around in, with main core concept coming down to navigating around and just interacting with the funny **** and characters. If that doesn't sound appealing than it probably won't be, but I loved it. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Отличная игра совей изюминкой, Графика в этой игре не так как в других играх, в игре есть несколько концовок, есть плохое, хорошее и странное. Плохое это когда вы взрываете атомную бомбу, Хорошее это когда вы улетаете из мусорного острова а Странное это когда вы Тегийте все 100 тегов в Острове, а вы играете за Духa-Ghost Игра на любителя.

    Un indie demasiado extraño.
    Sludge Life es un juego independiente demasiado extraño para algunas personas o aburrida para otras, con un diseño espectacular y una música asombrosa durante los diferentes eventos. Controlas al personaje llamado Ghost en un mundo abierto relativamente pequeño pero con demasiados lugares por explorar los cuales tendrás que ir grafiteando diferentes puntos de la ciudad por la cual te podrás encontrar objetos que te ayudaran a ver y moverte diferente por la ciudad y historias de los NPC sobre la situación que están pasando en ese instante.
    Contras: Es un juego relativamente corto de 3 horas aproximadamente, Los controles llegan a ser frustrantes al no responder algunas veces o de otra manera, Llega a ser muy repetitivo y aburrido en algunos puntos del juego.

This first person open world game is a trippy **** and doesn´t hold your hand at all. The art style, soundtrack and characters are really funny and unique and the exploration is really cool. The problem with this game is its length and the repetitive gameplay. But if you´re a genre fan, you will enjoy the experience! Expand

It literally made me nauseous within the first 10 minutes of playing the game. it took me a good 4 minutes to figure out how to stop the **** VHS and the desktop twirl because those features make me think I'm on acid.

    When I actually started playing there was no tutorial - no introduction and the readme (when you start the game there is a "readme" file you can open) is used as a changelog.

    The game puts you into this weird world full with bright colours and NPCs, those bright colours also contribute to the acid trip. The controls are weird and clunky, the sensitivity was weirdly high for some goddamn reason which, not gonna lie, made me really **** dizzy.

    Overall, I would not want to touch this game a single second further. Thank god i got this game for free whilst it was on sale, I would not want to pay 10 or so $ to get this **** of a game.
