Buck Up And Drive!


Buck Up And Drive! video game Developed by Fábio Fontes and published by Fábio Fontes

Developed by Fábio Fontes and published by Fábio Fontes

Where are we going? As individuals... as a species... what awaits us at the end of this road? Is there an end? Was there an beginning? Does this road symbolize real life in the sense that there's no turning back? And how does pineapple juice fit into all this? Maybe I should just shut up, Buck Up And Drive!

Features:

Endless driving game inspired by arcade classics, with simple yet intense gameplay featuring a total slap in the face of realism. And a kick in the spleen, too!

Procedurally generated track with multiple environments to visit, ranging from the somewhat realistic to the completely absurd. GO TO HELL!... literally!

PINK. BACKFLIPPING. TRUCKS. ON THE #$@$ING MOON.

Go 1v1 against another player (or a CPU) in a fighting mode. With cars. I dunno either, I came up with it while in the shower.

Customizable car decals through external image files. Put "eggplants" all over the cars, for all I care!

Controls for both game modes are 8 directions and one button. Play one-handed, if you want! Keep your other hand for... holding orange juice! Yes!

Available for both Windows and Ubuntu (other Linux distros may work).

Hats Are Not Allowed (DEMO)


Hats Are Not Allowed (DEMO) video game by LazerGenu

Made by LazerGenu

Demo only - Full game release plannedfor Q1 2022

Hats are forbidden. Any Bot found wearing a hat will be destroyed on sight. Any bot found not destroying a Bot found wearing a hat will be destroyed on sight.-RulerBot

The illegal hat in your possession has an unprecedented level of style which will inspire others to join your rebellion. Fight with sword, spear and shield to survive against those who would destroy you. As your power grows you must determine where your true ambitions lie.

DUEL

The dueling system is easy to learn but hard to master. There is no need to memorize long combos. Instead the focus is on quick reflexes, timing and tactics. Beware feints, be strategic with your distance and don't run out of steam.

BATTLE

Bot combat modules restrict fighting to duels only. This means battles are conducted via 1v1 duels until one squad has been completely defeated. Strategically select your fighters and either simulate, spectate or take control of the duels yourself!

UPGRADE

Discover and equip new bot parts and items to increase your attributes that best suit your fighting style.

DECIDE

As The Hat Wearer you will lead the Hat Rebellion. Do you seek to start a political revolution aiming for total hat freedom? Do you want to claim power for yourself? Or do you seek to discover the truth behind this world and the authoritarian Genu Corp?

If you run into frame rate issues please lower the graphics settings in the options menu.

The full game will have local multiplayer. However, the demo is single player only.

I will love to hear any feedback.

FIGHT WITH HONOR HAT WEARER!
