The Bad Ben The game was lovingly created by developer corpsepile and DreadXP. It is now available to play on Itch.io.
“When the opportunity to work on a Bad Ben game came up, I knew it was something I couldn’t pass on,” said corpsepile. He went on to explain,
“Nigel’s specific brand of horror and humor was so immediately identifiable to me that I wanted to do my best to translate it into another medium. I also felt that the way he went about creating his films matched some aspect of my own approach to game development. Essentially, both were direct streams of consciousness, drawn from the brains of their creators, and with (for better or worse) minimal refinement, directly conveyed to the viewer. My goal was to try and capture the line of parody and tribute that Nigel walks so well, while providing some real scares along the way. I wanted to do this not only for the movies themselves, but to take it a step further and apply it to the horror game genre as well.
