Boring Man - Alpha v0.0.1

I've been working on this game for the past year, and after much netcoding research and entire project redo later, this is what has come out of it.

Boring Man features stickmen who have more then 20 weapons at their disposal. They can also jump around like acrobatic maniacs to out maneuver their enemies.

I know the graphics aren't very clever, but I'm not multi-talented like a lot of the solo projects that are published on here.

The game is indeed fully online, and I'm still stress testing things so I don't have an idea how many players can be on a server at once.


All the technical info you'll need for hosting your own server is included in the readme file inside the download. It also includes the controls, and some tips for playing.

There is a server browser available but it is very basic and may go down from time to time, so don't be shy sharing those IP addresses with each other. If your server disconnects from the browser, you can type "/lobby" as the host to reconnect.

If this gains enough momentum, I will post a poll for suggestions/weapon balancing and some sort of bug reporting system later. But for now just play the damn game for me.

Thanks for taking interest!
