Contest: Win an SNES copy of Fork Parker's Crunch Out


A real SNES cartridge for your crunch-time enjoyment!

Feel the crunch on your SNES with a brand-new copy of Fork Parker’s Crunch Out!

Ok, so this one is pretty cool. Three awesome groups — Devolver Digital (awesome publisher), Mega Cat Studios (awesome dev/pub/physical producer), and Take This (awesome charitable organization increasing support for mental health in the game industry) — have teamed up to release Fork Parker’s Crunch Out, a game mocking the games industry and its relentless cycle of crunch and churn!

We’ve got a real-life working SNES copy of the game to give away — come win it!

Read all about the game below! Just don’t take any time off from work.

Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker enjoyed a life of luxury and spent his days watching the profits roll in from the lucrative indie game publishing industry. However, an upstart new publishing label threatens to take his beloved market share, forcing the handsome executive to take matters into his own hands and start ‘motivating’ his game developers by any means necessary. Meaningless elements like “artistic integrity” and “engaging gameplay” are out the window as efficiency and deadlines now dictate the studio’s every move – welcome to crunch time.

  • Furious task management and questionable motivation tactics are your tools. Coffee, discipline, and shock treatment are all in play if your team slips off their production schedule.
  • Spend your profits from each game wisely – do you invest in a new espresso machine to keep the your dev team happy or buy some winged wingtips to help you zip around the office?
  • Deploy strategic power-ups, like unpaid interns working for exposure and mandatory overtime to stay on track and hit that release date.
  • Take executive action in exciting and intense mini-games to keep his office in order. When the internet drops out or your beloved wife calls in, only Fork and his pet piggy bank Pork Farker can save the game and the bottom line.

This is the kind of quirky, goofy stuff I love putting up for grabs. I hope you enjoy it!
