“So, I made a game, right? I filled it with harmless funny puzzles, narrated it a little bit, and then players started making fun of it! They broke the game and ignored my rules! They… they… laughed at me! As if it was some kind of a joke! Why do they have to be so mean?!” – developer of “Dude, Stop”.
“Dude, Stop” is a puzzle game, where the main goal is to not follow the rules and make everybody hate you. Break it, abuse it, skip the tutorial, ignore tips and tricks in the loading menu and – most importantly! – mute the narrator.
For example, stop reading this paragraph and skip to the next one. You’re still reading. Still looking here. Annnd… done. You’ve broken your first rule and annoyed us a little bit. And didn’t even buy the game yet! Wow, you’re talented. Have you considered quitting your job and doing this fulltime?
Collect all rewards, unlock all achievements and brag to your buddies that you’ve enraged some poor developer from a video game and made him scream at you just like in the trailer. Do your best. Or worst. Or both at once.
Dive into countless* puzzles carefully made by the developers. Some of them relatable, some of them not. Who cares, buy the damn game
Fully voiced narration of both good and bad solutions. You can ignore or mute it all you want, it’s still there
All kinds of shiny rewards and achievements assembled by a hungry underpaid developer in a basement just so you can feel justified breaking another level and giggling for five seconds
Many moments where you will be saying “What?”, “Why?” and “Preordering videogames is good”. Just kidding, you will mostly be just clicking stuff and dragging and throwing it all over the screen
Self-aware humor that simply tries waaay too hard. This includes timeless references that only our weird programmer can understand. Like “42” and “You’re gonna have a bad time”. What a nerd, haha
