Game Completion 2020 #37 – Behold the Kickmen

  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: Size Five Games
  • Publisher: Size Five Games

While others ask ‘are games art?’, the developer of Behold the Kickmen asked ‘can games be jokes?’. The answer is obviously yes, but joke games usually outstay their welcomes once the joke is made. Behold the Kickmen, a game in which the entire premise is its creator’s disdain for football, circumvents that by being built on solid mechanics first.
