Last year didn’t get us the Switch 2, but it certainly got us something very interesting and unexpected. 2021 didn’t release Breath of the Wild 2, but a brand new NES game called Slow mole.
Slow Mole is known for anything but slowness, as the game has gained a reputation in the speedrunning community for being extremely fun and challenging. Created by animator Erik Rosenlund, it’s free to play and download, and you can even emulate it on original hardware. A physical cassette version is also in the works – you can find out more about it on Erik’s Patreon.
But Erik returns to his main passion to create a fun and bizarre looking project – a movie for his game! Erik has released a short trailer for the upcoming theatrical movie, in which a clay mole gets more and more frustrated with the game and even throws his NES controller at the TV!
How the platformer will translate to the big (or small) screen we don’t know, but the short trailer gives us a glimpse of a buzz saw and a neat little brick platform. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think!
If you haven’t tried Slow Mole yet, you can download the game on itch.io. If you played it, let us know your thoughts in the comments!
