For a wacky FMV puzzle game, Roundabout is surprisingly hardcore

Roundabout is full of things that are going to make you laugh, but its immense difficulty is not one of them.

Sure, its cutscenes and writing are amusing, and its premise — you're a limo driver who is constantly, endlessly spinning their vehicle between fares — is unique, to say the least. It also makes for an enormously punishing game mechanic, because the world of Roundabout is populated by countless buildings, parked cars, actual roundabouts and any number of other obstacles just waiting to make you explode. It's like playing Irritating Stick while parallel parking, forever.

To get a firm understanding of the herculean task Roundabout asks you to undergo, check out the Overview video above.
