Good lesson, stop smoking. (self note)

Banger game. Really fun just going around smashing things! The story is really well made too for this being a shorter game! Overall well done!

Hey friends! Hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoy the game! Glad I decided to play this today, I have been seeing this game in my feed for a while! Awesome game! 

This game was awesome. So much fun and so dark. Very well made! 100/10!


For those on Windows 11 To fix crashing issue You have to turn off your Wi-Fi On your PC :) That worked for me

buen juego! 馃憤

didn't expect Perfect Vermin to have a storyline ( i just saw the pictures ) and will say it was unexpectedly fun and interesting to play 

this game is extremely cathartic with the destruction with the subtle build up of it being much darker than it appears. Really well done!


I understand wanting the game to be longer, but I think the essence is wrapped up well: time is finite and won't wait for you, and it won't drag out endlessly before you, either. The visuals are nice, the gameplay is smooth, and the puzzle-like element is stimulating. Ultimately, heartbreaking.

5/5. Awesome game, just wish it was longer though. It seemed like it had a lotta potential, not that it's not awesome already


PERFECT VERMIN -  love playing on itch so many games to test and try and so many AMAZING new devs - wish this game was longer as had so much fun ;) keep up the amazing work..


This game was fun and well made good job I enjoyed it!

guys help me the textures are broken even it doesnt load the floor (guys if it has a incompatibility with notebooks let me know)

Alas, Perfect Vermin (and by extension this version of the Unreal Engine 4) is incompatible with your PC.

i rlly wanted to play it cuz the game seems to be so good, but it crashes everytime :(


yes it crashes look really fun but then 饾悂饾悗饾悗饾悓, it all goes bye-bye.


it crashes when you play for 2 minutes

This is caused by an incompatibility between the version of Unreal Engine 4 Perfect Vermin uses and your computer, unfortunately there is nothing that can be done.

It was weird, it was wild, it was PERFECT

Great Game, Loved the story.


is this horror


This was a very interesting and awesome looking game. The story was well done and it left me questioning what was happening the whole way through 


Cool game


"And once again I am amused by the simple beauty of colours." 

The writing was beautiful, the gameplay was fun, the message was haunting. I will be thinking about this game for a long time.


Game Crashes after a while

This game reminded me what I love about good game design. It's fantastic, thank you.


COOL!Violence quit smoking.


really cool, reminds me of hotline miami a little


Hi! I've tried to play the game twice, but the game cuts out on me after one minute of in-game time. What's going on?


Your computer is incompatible with the version of Unreal Engine 4 that Perfect Vermin uses. Sometimes playing in offline mode can resolve this issue, beyond that not much can be done.


Thanks for letting me know!


i bet people found this because of qzeq


yea one of them me


This game is amazing

I had so much fun breaking everything, it was quite satisfying game. 

There is a bigger message here and I did not expect that. Combined with just the awesomeness of destroying things; what鈥檚 not to love?
