The rules are simple: quit the game to win.

But is it really that simple?

Well... play the game and find it out! 😉

"QUIT THE GAME TO WIN" is a short game where things get weird quite fast. 
A game where quitting is not that simple...

Nice game! Wish it was longer though.

Thank you! 😃 Feel free to try my latest game "A Quiet Nothing" for a longer and more challenging experience. 😉


This was really cool! I remember watching jacksepticeye and Markiplier's playthroughs of it a long time ago, so when I saw who the developer was, I decided to give it a try myself, and I really enjoyed it. 


Yeah, it's definitely my "greatest hit" so far. ☺️
It's so nice that after all this time it still manages to get new players, and with quite positive feedbacks too.
As always, thanks! 😉


I really hope that you get another hit. Your games and stories deserve to get more attention and love.

I beat the game... but what did it cost? Was it worth it?

haha it was awesome! wish it was longer tho, I enjoyed it too much

The game was not very cooperative when I tried to record it, but once I managed, it was quite funny.

Love the idea and the game! Didnt quit

Did i win? Im'not sure of anything anymore...


I'm not sure if this game came out before or after "There is no game", but it feels like a spiritual predecessor which I'm all for!

It's about a 5-ish minute experience, the dialogue is pretty funny at times, and it's just an overall clever little story/puzzle game that you'll get a good laugh out of at least once

My playthrough:


tw// spoilers

Amazing game! i've played it twice, every time it quits itself i say "What Happened?!" in shock.

I've got SuperF4, which is unstoppable. Is that cheating?


Thank you!
And yes, unfortunately that counts as cheating too, but you know, "Quit The Game In-Game To Win" sounded a bit mouthful. 😉



Well, at least i still have X

This game hard

it wasnt that simple

well he won

but now what next


Nice game! Pretty Short, for a kind of this game a bit too short but i like it! 


That *wasn't* easy.


this game was short, fun and a interesting way to quit a game XD  nice   


jajajaja, really funny game :)


Recorded it




it was good! liked it! 


I made a video on this game and had fun. 


good game


Good game. The ending kinda funny too.

Love the aesthetic!  Audio and visuals really meshed well together and thought the concept was executed perfectly. Had fun quitting haha


This was hilarious and quirky! 


Thank you! 👍

Very entertaining!


Thank you!

Check my latest game BLACK TREE PROJECThttps://approductions.itch.io/black-tree-project


Gave it a go...

Interesting. Somewhere around 'This is not a game"

Cool Game!


Really fun! Very Unique.


Great game, I really enjoyed it.


Amazing game! Had a lot of fun while playing this ;)


Thanks! 👍


That was very weird. Had fun but would be nice if longer.

Thank you! For a longer (and weirder) experience, I'd suggest you to try "Sealess Mother" or "N.I.N.E.".
They're more on the creepy side (especially "Sealess Mother"), but nonetheless worth a play if you enjoyed "Quit the game to win". 😉


I love games that break the 4th wall. They feel a lot more personal. Great concept. Super simple and well executed.

(also, I spent waaay to long trying to call the "X" button)

And seeing how there aren't enough video links here, I'll add one more:

(1 edit)

Thanks! Hope you'll take a look at my other games too!
(psst... especially these two 😉: https://approductions.itch.io/nine, https://approductions.itch.io/sealess-mother)


Really nice game and concept, would really like to see longer game with more puzzles.

Good job!


Thank you! 👍


Yw, good luck on your future projects!

After over 40 releases, I'm taking a little rest. 😅

Notable mentions:

Enjoy! 👍


I loved the creepiness towards the end of the game as well as the humour too! I love games like this that is on the same level as “Don’t Push The Button” or “Dude, Stop”. 

Hope to see more like this in the future!

Thank you! 😉


This was actually a very satisfying game to play and made quite a few laughs for me.

I figured it out and I am pleasantly satisfied with this game.

Thank you! 😉
