In a blog post released earlier today, developer Bulbware announced that Poopdie, its gross-out dungeon crawler, has finally been greenlit by Apple and launched onto the App Store as a free-to-play title.

The game, which features voicework from YouTuber PewDiePie, is set in a world of sentient bums and bugs. You play as Poopdie, a weird worm-like creature who often finds himself the victim of his neighbours' aggression. They suffer from a dreadful affliction: they are entirely unable to fart or defecate, and this seems to be the source of their misplaced anger.

For reasons unbeknownst to Poopdie, he is one of the few still capable of both pooping and farting, and so he heads out on an adventure to uncover the truth and maybe some sort of cure.

Poopdie isn't particularly skilled in close-quarters combat, and so he relies on his incredible "poopcrafting" skills in order to survive. What this basically means is that he can eat different foods and turn them into unit types which have their own specific skills.

It's very clearly inspired by the work of Ed McMillen, especially The Binding of Isaac. Poopdie's art style and intense focus on scatological humour appear to be the main reasons Apple initially rejected the game earlier this month, with Bulbware saying that it was the game's "crude imagery and sound effect [sic] which may disgust users" that broke Apple's guidelines.

If you fancy giving it a go, you'll find Poopdie available for download now from both the App Store and Google Play.
