Game information

Nitrome Must Die

History

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 Nitrome headquarters. Austin stops near the entrance, but Justin lands in the trash cans, knocking them over and finding two experimental guns inside.

With the guns, both of them navigate through the 99 floors of Nitrome Towers, defeating both their employees and the other entities they created, based off characters from other Nitrome games, using the company's many experimental weapons.

Spoiler
At the top awaits the boss of the company, and battles against them. After being considerably weakened by them, he retreats into a big mechanic armor 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

Austin serves as player one. When reviving player two, Austin will kick Justin until he gets up (four bars). Austin is armed with a gun, and the player is able to control him by using Up, Down, Left, Right, and shoot using spacebar. In the elevator, Austin cannot be controlled and instead remains idle, performing action such as sleeping, listening to music with his headphones, yawning or drinking and littering the cup he uses to drink.

Super Stock Take

Austin Carter appears behind bars in a block on level 21; he is also mentioned in the speech bubble for that level.

Go Pogo

Spoiler
Austin appears as a playable character in Go Pogo and can be purchased for 60 coins.


Personality

Little is known about Austin's personality. It's possible that he loves music, as he can be seen listening to music on his iPod. He also gets tired when bored, and will doze off when in the elevator. He is shown to drink juice as well, when inside the elevator.

Other appearances

  • 100th Game - Austin Carter appears with Justin Bennet, both of them 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".

Trivia

  • 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.
