Stair Dismount is a computer game made by Jetro Lauha of tAAt. It is a physics game where the goal is maximising the damage done to a 3D stick figure. The player causes damage by briefly applying a force to the figure to make it fall down a staircase.
The stick figure's falls are accompanied by various sound effects - cracks, wails and groans - as it makes its way to the bottom. Stair Dismount uses ragdoll physics, so the figure is very floppy as it falls, like a ragdoll.
The game was first published in Assembly 2002, where it won the first prize in the game development competition. The newest version, 1.0.3, is available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
