Don't Byte Your Tongue started as a project amongst a group of students because of their love for rage games. The team aimed to create an addictive rage game where the goal was to establish a simple set of mechanics that would be easy to understand for any type of player, but difficult to master as the game progresses. Rage games were mostly seen as unfair games that brought entertainment to only viewers and not the actual player, but the goal for Don't Byte Your Tongue was to create a rage game that was fair but still retained the brutal punishments expected from a rage game. This game then transformed from a concept into a prototype back in January, 2022. Ever since the summer of 2022, Don't Byte Your Tongue has been beta tested by our beta testers in our Discord community. The final version was made in the first week of April, after almost a year and three months of work. It is simply a passion project created by a bunch of undergraduates that did not want to study.
