Game started as a Ludum Dare #33 entry, and now will become a full-featured Puzzle Comedy Game!



Dude, Stop is a puzzle game, where the main goal is to make everyone hate you.


And I mean it! If someone would watch you play, they could slap you upside the head and call you The Most Evil Person alive! And we are not even sorry about that! Because we know that deep down in your soul… you really like it! You like ruining our puzzles, solving them badly, and looking for that one solution that could make your evil-self happy! …or, you know, you can be a boring chap and solve all the puzzles as a normal, casual, average human being. But let’s face it – we know what it’s gonna be in the end, right? …you monster!

Hi, Hello, Bonjourno, Olá, Sveiki! (That last one was in Latvian! You are welcome! Now if you visit us, we could greet each other!... Not like you would, coz you don’t even know where Latvia is! Am I right?! ...Annnnd you’re opening google maps.) ...where was I? Oh yeah! The blog post!!

Dude, Stop - Infinity Cat

(“don’t ask me” gif of the week)

We played it!

We did it! Once again. We played “Dude, Stop” from start to finish!... Except this time it wasn’t “we”, but “them” - we found playtesters and forced them (sometimes literally) to play the game for us! And after hours of giggles and “You do gonna pay me for this, right?” and “Where is your furniture?” questions, we finally gathered feedback and let them free!... And now we have 6 pages of “fix this” and “fix that” notes that we need to go through... WELL THANK YOU VERY MUCH! You just added more work!! GREAT! ... Jokes aside: the feedback was positive, everything worked, some parts were fun, others require some polish,. Hey, one person even said “I want to play it again”! We would call it a success!!

Dude, Stop - Watermelon

And now we need to fix all this... feedback. It’s not complicated - just time consuming. But hey, at least WE found it, and not YOU, that’s good, right? After we’re done with these fixes - we’re going to find a few more testers and repeat the whole process. Then again. And again. And then stop! We don’t have so many friends...

What's left 2.0

Same as last month. NEXT TOPIC!

Ok, ok, to make you feel better, here are some new screenshots. You like points? You gonna get extra points if you can guess what’s going on every picture:

Hey, is summer coming? ‘Cause these blogs are sure getting shorter! But we did nothing cool this month to talk about. All we did was: bug fixing, polishing, animation improvements, several playthroughs, spent a few days with playtesters (Did you know you need to feed them?! Like, what’s with that?!), and now back to bug fixing. Somehow I even thing that “bug fixing” is eighth circle of hell - the infinite one, the tedious one, the “fix 1, get 2 for free” one... It’s just. So. Much. Fun. ...anyway! Click our social media buttons :D

"Your script is hundred and twenty pages for a cute little indie game?! But... why?” you may ask, and quite reasonably so. Let us explain!

Today we start a tale of sound integration and a voice that will mumble, fumble, scream and shout, while you’re ruining completely everything.

Demo is a improved version of the Ludum Dare entry. We added more puzzle, improved old ones and worked more on the UI.

I really didn't know what to expect from this game. It initially looked whimsical so I though I would try it out. The fact that the object of the game is to be the biggest butt possible to an OCD AI is oddly satisfying. It really helps in releasing any pent up frustration lol so thanks for that. It did seem a little short though but I do realize that it is still under development. I will be looking for any more additions you make to the game. If you want to check out my gameplay video, you can do so here:

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it! We're also glad you liked the demo version, because the full game will contain a lot more OCD nightmares and much more of "being a butt"!

And thank you for your video, Not-even-a-half-rebel.
