Everything about Muscle World is so intriguing to me. It feels like the surface of a much larger world (in a very good way!). It's atmosphere is mystical and also very funny, and it feels kind of meditative when you're muscling your way across long, dark distances (also scary when you hear something start to follow you). I love this game!

A constantly tense and mysterious adventure... Now I finally know what I'm missing out on for not having a gym membership!
The opening shot of Muscle World made me think of King's Field 1 (the original, Japan-exclusive one) a lot, and I guess that was an accurate feeling because of the very slow (not in a bad way!) pace, and obscure environmental storytelling.
I am very intrigued by the description mentioning secret locations and endings but I can't seem to find more than the red orb, and one ending... Guess I gotta do more push-ups!
thank you!!! i've never played king's field 1 but i had king's field 2's aesthetics in mind a lot while making this, and it was one of the main inspirations for making this ridiculous thing. really glad you enjoyed it!!!
also, re: secret places/endings...
there's a couple places that aren't lit by any lights, but you should be able to spot them after you've done enough push-ups, since gaining muscle slightly improves your vision (caps at 200 muscle)... and the secret ending is defeating the red muscle spirit and becoming it yourself... thus being trapped in the muscle world... forever (there's no credits screen)
Ahh I'm glad to hear my thoughts of King's Field were mostly on the dot!!
I didn't realize increasing muscle power increases vision range, that's really clever! I'll be sure to scour the game a bit more with that in mind :)
