Surmount Release Date


PC Switch

Surmount is a platformer with adventure elements revolving around mountain climbing (although it treats it rather humorously). It was developed by two indie developers - Jasper Oprel and Indiana-Jonas.


Surmount is set in a fictional world, its focus being its tallest peak, Mount Om. The playable character decides to become the first person in history to successfully climb the mountain. On her way she meets numerous eccentric characters.


Surmount is a side-scroller. The game's numerous stages include stages designed by hand and procedurally generated locations. While climbing Mount Om we must grab onto rocks, make dangerous jumps and use a rope. It protects us from long falls, lets us swing over chasms and overcome various obstacles. We must also keep the laws of physics in mind and use them to our advantage; for example, holding onto a ledge and rotating around it gives us momentum for a longer, higher jump.

As we progress, we meet the eccentric characters living at the bottom of Mount Om, develop our protagonist and gain better equipment, letting us face increasingly greater challenges. Along the way we also acquire cosmetic items used to customize our character's appearance.

Game modes

Surmount supports singleplayer and local co-op. Having another player by our side we gain more versality, as a second climber means an additional attachment point during our climb.

Technical aspects

Surmount makes use of a colorful, cartoonish, exaggerated artstyle.
