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

I loved this game here is my take on it.

Amazing game, pretty fun but a little short. Makes up for it in the challenge aspect :)

I bought and would have loved to try this game, but I seem to be among those that have a bunch of glitches.  Even after I turn off the wifi the hammer doesn't spawn more than half the time.  And even if it does the newscaster dude instantly recalls me to the elevator. Then half the time the ELEVATORS closed it's doors so I can't even do that!


What great use of changing camera and perspective.  A short game, but a very good one.  Can get disorienting with all of the camera changes, so warning if you are sensitive to that.

Brother, you must let me try on your system.  Mine hast failed me to eternal hammer-less-ness or return to elevators that never open 

Damn man.  I'll get you the hookup.


Without exaggeration, one of the best games I have played. Story telling through subtle clues in world was on point, and the writing especially in the end was incredible. Absolutely a must play.


Honestly i loved playing the game and the ending really pulled the entire game together.

Rough ending :( awesome game, and destruction physics though!



Man, that ending really hit you in the feels.

I tried playing it for the first time but it told me to return to the elevator to try again? I put the settings on low but it keeps crashing

Your computer itself is below the Unreal Engine 4's minimum system requirements. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done.

I read in the comments that turning off the WiFi helped, and it worked! It has some weird bugs tho


he really does be sounding like a pug

i dont know why but every 5 min it crashes the thired time it happened i looked in to the settings and even while i was looking at the settings it crashed dose any one know why


I thought this game is all about smashing things. I wasn't ready for the end which was very cool. Really fascinating game.


Come for the smashing, stay for the surprisingly sad allegory to a certain disease.


very cool. very very cool.


I love that you gave time in the beginning to smash things! As the game progressed it got even better! Awesome game :)


Let's break it down

How did this slip past my radar for so long lol. Quality, rage-reduction game


keeps randomly crashing.

it crashes for me too :( it seems like a very interesting game though i wish i could play it


So interesting, never played a game like this! 

I did not know what to expect at all going in to this game, but I sure did have a lot of fun playing!

i got softlocked :(


this game is incredibly cool, love both gameplay and story :)



I've found a bug in the Linux build. While Level 3 (upside-down) only spawns 5 objects, the counter displays 10 and thus the level can never be completed.


I played the linux version and i made it all the way through

There are 2 different camera, each has 5


I certainly did not expect it to go this way. Great game though :)


this game is a masterpiece of  desing


I can't get past smashing a few things before the game crashes. Does anyone else have this problem?


Same with me


Turning my wifi off worked 


same for me, thanks for the tip

Same. Weird. Thanks


Superb game. Graphics are great. Gameplay is fun as f$@k. Super story.


This has to be one of my favorite games to date. The story was so intriguing and I didn't see the end coming. Had a lot of fun playing this. Great Job! Game starts at 00:00


I had too much fun with this game. 10/10

For me, Perfect Vermin is a game design gift that was given to me and that I enjoyed with pleasure.

A well-built level design with a well-used game mechanic. A dark and uncomfortable atmosphere that made me hate the vermin I killed to the last.

Well done to the team.


Absolutely loved the game and it's pixel art. I didn't expect it to go deeper than smashing stuff honestly.

Btw, is there any way to beat the last level? Does anything happen if you beat it?


Really atmospheric game. 


Just uploaded this to my channel.. this game is so much fun! I was confused at first but figured it out fairly quick. The gameplay itself is really smooth and fun and I even love the cutscenes. I highly recommend trying it out! 

Here is my video if you're interested in watching!


getting crashes really early on, before any cutscene or anything, usually just after smashing something. On a HP Spectre x360 14, which has a modern intel processor, so that shouldn't be causing it.


Just loving this game! Here's the full playthrough of this game!


wow. This game is awesome and that ending twist was the icing on the cake!


Uhm, I've encountered a strange bug! I've seen a video on the first level, and when I tried to play the game, the cutscene of the news anchor telling you to go back to the elevator starts just as I enter the first room! Has anyone encountered this bug too? I'm really interested in this game, so please let me know!


I have encountered this on my first playthrough too

me too

have you found a fix for this bug, or anything else?

I had this happen to me too, but going back to the main menu and hitting play again fixed it for me.


This issue is caused by the device you are using being below the Unreal Engine 4's minimum system requirements. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do.


The impact of using gods weapon himself the sledgehammer is absolutely satisfying. Game is great and sound design is flawless overall. Great job

Are there multiple endings, or just one?
