Utsvulten is a "warm and intimate" desktop browser game about holding hands and feeding a friend.

Press Enter to start, use the mouse and left-click to select your morsel, and eat until one of you is full!

Utsvulten (Swedish for 'famished') was made in 48 hours during this year's Ludum Dare game jam by ditto. This is his design.

I wish this had been wholesome and not gruesome dark comedy.

I feel like they're enjoying each other's company. Although I would totally play a wholesome QWOP-type game about trying to feed your friend.

I dunno – you're not wrong about the gruesomeness, but I found it kinda warm and intimate.

It probably helps if you've tried psychedelics.

This is one hell of an answer to the previous post's question.

"Hey I can feed a grape to my friend, cool! Ok, let's try that orange. Whoops, missed the orange and instead...plucked the skin from my friend's abdomen exposing his intestines. Yuck."

Arguably this is both thoroughly wholesome and a bit gruesome all at once.

I am, without anything concrete to base this on, also entirely convinced that it's really secretly about climate change. And very much well worth playing - glad I did! - unless you really aren't in the mood for something a bit gruesome, in which case, totally fair enough, this game isn't for you...

It's only a little gruesome, in the scheme of things, though.
