I have just tried to unlock freaking The Kid for an entire "/%$% hour to no avail.
Honestly I have played this game for 9 hours total, and am 39% progress so far, and now I have just wasted an ENITIRE HOUR to absolutely ZERO RESULTS.
Not in a single sitting two, scattered across 3 sittings today, I had to stop each time because I was about to throw my controller at my screen, I love this game but it's also the worst game ever.
I know exactly how you feel. Not more than an hour ago I got into what is very likely one of the greatest video game rages I've ever had! I was hopelessly trying to get past this one level, probably died on it more times than I've died on any other level. I was literally screaming a 15 minute long monologue of how the game is absolutely fantastic, but they completely screwed it up with the unimaginable difficulty. I went as far as to saying that the creator of this game was Satan himself and that I had just fed the devil 14 euro and bla bla bla etc... Also, I could feel my head heating up and realized a bunch of pressure was going to it, I could have sworn that if I continued playing I would have popped a vein no doubt.
It's a real shame, I don't know why a developer like Team Meat wouldn't bother publishing a game with in-explainable difficulty. I don't know, maybe I just really suck at the game and the game isn't difficult at all, but if that's the case then it would only make me angrier.
It isn't time wasted. You'll get there eventually... maybe.
You played the game for a total of nine hours, and you tried for one hour. That might be part of the problem. It takes a long time before you really start to master the physics of the game. When I unlocked The Kid, it took me roughly two hours, and I had a couple dozens of hours of game time.
Try again later, perhaps.
