Surprise Bullfight: More Proof That Messhof is Trying to Make His Fans Insane

on March 16, 2012 6:00 PM

In Surprise Bullfight, you are a gnome that must traverse an ancient forest and harvest the organs of the native beasts that roam the land, in order to placate a giant lardass of an idol and ensure his appetite is fully sated.

…don’t worry, you’re not the only one thinking “is this real life?” at this moment. I learned of Messhof‘s newest mindbang last night, and I’m still trying to figure out if this is a dream or not. The prolific indie dev is definitely known for premises that’re, ah, unorthodox, but man, this one might be at the apex of madness.

Just like one of his previous Adult Swim greatsĀ Cream Wolf, this is all manner of unsettling, and will leave a lasting, resonant impression on your very soul. I don’t want to know about Surprise Bullfight, and yet I want to tell every single person about it. Play it, love it, hate it, and go goddamn insane.
