Game information

Nitrome Must Die


Austin is seen chatting with his friend Justin about how they lost the latest Nitrome game and declare that they are going to obliterate Nitrome once and for all.

They ride their bikes to the incredibly large building. Austin is skilled at using his bike and is able to brake properly. Justin keeps going and lands in the trash cans. Knocking over the trash cans is fortunate for the two, as there were two experimental guns inside.

With the guns, Austin and Justin navigate through the 99 floors of Nitrome Towers, killing all the enemies they come upon (including their Employees) with the company's many experimental weapons.

They reach the top to find the obese boss of the company, who attacks the two. The bosses skill in combat and help from his employees are not enough to kill the two boys, who after considerably weakening the overweight man, force him to retreat into his machine based off Nitrome's mascot.

The battle is taken to the rooftops of the skyscraper. Through much dodging, the bang gun is dropped. It is fired and causes the collapse of the building and the demise of the boss's machine. Both Austin and Justin, through navigating down the falling rubble, attempt to kill the boss in his last resort machine - his escape pod. Successfully, they obliterate his Pod which forces him on to the floor. He is then crushed by the letter O in the NITROME sign. Super rich, Austin plans on starting up a new gaming company.

In game

Don't bother playing Nitrome games. Play something decent instead like Halo or gears of war.

Other appearances

  • 100th Game - Austin Carter appears with Justin Bennet, firing their guns, and running away from a hoard of enemies in the skin.
  • Icebreaker Now has Achievements!- Austin is seen on a "Wanted" poster and in another part being taken away by a Boss and an Executive.
  • Game comments preview - Long prior to the release of accounts, at the right side of the game page would be an image of what the comments bar for a page would be, Austin replying to Cuboy 2's saying "LAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".
  • Nitrome accounts coming next week - Austin appears in the trailer and makes several comments. He says "What's this? Christmas?" to the words "Nitrome has a gift for you" on the screen. In reading the words "Nitrome accounts" he says "This is going to be another long wait...", letting out a sigh, only to reply "I have to admit this time I'm quite impressed!" to the presence of the words "Coming next week".



  • Austin owns a Pear computer, which is a parody to the Apple computers.
  • Austin walks barefooted, unlike Justin who actually wears shoes.
  • Sometimes when the game freezes for a second (or so), the hair that is covering one of Austin's eyes will lift up, except that his eye is not visible.
  • Both Austin Carter and Justin Bennet have six letters in their first name, and six letters in their last name. This might be a reference to the popular web comic "Homestuck", suggesting that both Austin and Justin are internet trolls.
  • Austin's clothes may be based off the stereotype that gothic kids (in England) prefer navy blue.
  • Some of his death cries in Nitrome Must Die are the same as the young Norse warrior's and Norman Noggin's.
