Sometimes You Die is a new punishingly hard indie puzzle platformer from Philipp Stollenmayer. It seems influenced by games like Super Meat Boy, in which dying over and over is an integral part of the gameplay.

But unlike other titles, Sometimes You Die it leaves your lifeless corpse in the level to aid in future attempts.

You take control of a tiny silhouetted square which you must guide through each stage. Once dead, you will respawn and be able to bounce on through the level again, this time using you old corpse as a bridge or platform.
