3 out of 10, the episodic playable sitcom from Terrible Posture Games about life at the world’s worst game development studio, puts on a new face today with the season finale, Episode 5 – “The Rig is Up!” exclusively on the Epic Games Store for PC. Owned by 4.5+ million players, Season One is free on the Epic Games Store.
Ever wake up and just not feel like yourself? You look in the mirror and just see an empty void where your face once sat. No, seriously—Pylon’s face is gone. When a rigging issue leaves only his eyes afloat above his torso, Pylon needs the help of Midge and Kevin to cure his transparent affliction. Journey forth to a land of enchantment and mystery (Canada) to find a solution for Pylon’s plight, but stay alert! Shovelworks’ losing streak of bad review scores may not be entirely their fault…
In this action-packed season finale, 3 out of 10’s minigames pay homage to video game history and cover both sides of the northern border. As Pylon, escape a makeshift office arena by dodging Viper’s attacks. Brave the mysterious sewer tunnels connecting New England and Canada in a nostalgic top-down dungeon crawler where secret chambers and elusive spider moose guard the path to the Great White North. Reconstruct Pylon’s face in a physics-based, high-score-racking tabletop retro gaming experience. (It’s pinball.)
Was it a video game? Was it a show? In its debut season, 3 out of 10 defied characterization at every turn, rewriting the rules of good taste expectations with dozens of game genres and a serialized story released in five installments over five concurrent weeks. Yet plenty of mysteries remain. Will the Shovelworks crew of well-meaning ne’er-do-wells ever finish Surfing with Sharks? In its final form, will their game be worthy of a review score higher than 3 out of 10? Seriously, Pylon, what’s with the ketchup?
“At the start of this journey, we saw a space in games for an easy-to-digest weekly story,” said Joe Mirabello, creative director for Terrible Posture Games. “It’s been a once-in-a-lifetime pleasure to share this weird experiment and our love of making games with literally millions of people. Well, we hope it’s not once-in-a-lifetime. Please play our game so we can make more!”
3 out of 10’s complete first season is now available for free exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
