ApathyWorks’ Cute Things Dying Violently, the smash hit of last August’s Xbox Live Indie Games Summer Uprising, is finally making its way to Windows PC on July 17, via Desura, IndieCity, and Indievania. And how much will it cost? $2.99!

Be warned: this stands alone with Grover Cleveland’s inaugural address in terms of sheer historical impact.

What is CTDV? Well, it's a game about Critters. And the Critters need your help! You flick the foul-mouthed little bastards around each level to get them safely to the elevator. Between the Critters and their salvation lie puzzles and a ton of murderous objects such as spikes, buzzsaws, fire, and a homicidal, bucket-headed robot. It's up to you to save these Cute Things and prevent them from Dying Violently.

In addition to a singleplayer campaign of 60 mind-bending, reflex-testing levels, there’s also 6 unlockable challenge levels, 24 Achievements, and a built-in Level Editor that players can use to create and play their own (inferior) levels.
