Jaryd 'summit1g' Lazar looked on the brink of exploding into a fit of rage during a Twitch stream on January 1, after failing time after time on Jump King. 

The popular variety streamer was one of the platform's biggest trendsetters during 2019, but has actually jumped on the bandwagon of another viral video game in 2020 – and it's an extremely frustrating one, too.

Jump King fails have been doing the rounds on social media after a number of high profile personalities decided to download and play it in front of their fans, usually sparking some hilarious fails.

Despite already completing one of Jump King's missions in a previous stream, summit has been playing it again and this time he's directed the anger of his falls to the developer behind the game, Nexile.

For those who haven't seen the game already, it tasks players with the mission of jumping their way past different obstacles in order to progress higher. However, while it might feel increasingly rewarding the higher you get, it doesn't get much worse than missing a step and falling right the way down to the bottom again.

The former CSGO player looked to be making some real progress during the broadcast, but after a few consecutive fails, it all got a bit too much for him.

He shouted: "Dude, suck my d*ck! God, you're probably like one guy in your basement that made this fucking video game because it looks like my asshole. Put this f**king game into development. Arghh!"

As you would expect, a few fails wasn't going to stop him from trying again and again – which is one of the reasons why the PC title has become so popular of late. It's very addictive.

It was only a matter of time before he dropped right the way down again, though, leaving him head-in-hands. He added: "F**k! Oh my god bro, I'm going to lose my sh*t right now."

While he certainly lost it with the developers during the stream, he's already proven that he can get the job done and there's no doubt that he will go on to reach the summit a few more times before switching to another game. Until then, fans will enjoy the fails.
