Sandra and Woo 0976
I think this strip works well on its own, and was originally written like that, but it is of course also a reference to the PC game Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy.
Getting Over It is a short game that can theoretically be completed in just a few minutes, but it is ridiculously hard since it requires extremely precise mouse input. And if you fall at one obstacle the wrong way, you may fall all the way back to the starting position. There are lots of funny videos on YouTube of Let's Players who scream and cry like little children due to their frustration when playing the game:
“Orange Hell” is the nickname for the most notorious part of the game. The problem is not that the jump from the table with the orange is super hard; the problem is the difficulty of the following steep face (especially the last jump) and the extreme punishment for every tiny mistake.
All in all, the game is so hard that only 4.5% of all Steam users have managed to complete it, usually taking several hours. I’m one of them.
