Rogues Like Beer

Big trouble at the old McGrath pub. The beer is finished!

And it will not be easy to get some more! Through the cellars of the pub, our friends will have to face deadly dangers to reach the much-desired trophy. But you know how they say… Sacrifices must be made, if you want to drink with your brigade!

Will our heroes be able to quench their throats? beers

love the style

It was nice, but please specify in the controls that space is used to jump. I was really confused for a while.

A quick little fun game to spend your time. 10 minutes to beat it, but a really fun game

Well that was fun! Love the music and the mr Meeseeks-like guys. I couldn't finish the last level, tho.

Beeeeeeeeeer

Those egg heads are very funny...Clever game...Very well done...!!!

Thanks for this, I recently covered this in a "3 games 1 video" episode, check it out:

Super fun little puzzles i would love a longer game of this!

I'm getting an incredible "Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers" vibe from this. Well done.

I only have one thing to say about this game and that is YES! This game is awesome! I had alot of fun playing and it looks nice. I only wish for more levels.

Good job! :D

PS. Sacrifices must be made


Fun puzzles and stylized gfx combined made it an enjoyable experience overall. Would play if there are more puzzles

The puzzles are fun but the death count is high xD

i love puzzle and something absurb but i feel guilty to smash some potato man for beer

Really cool graphic and fun game play. Good work!

I think you put a lot of effort into this and did a good job.  Off to a great start!

Fun game with well crafted, but simple puzzles.
In my opinion it could be polished more and more variables could be added, in addition to different levels, because the ones available make it feel like a very short game.
Graphically I think the cell shadin is too strong and could be lowered a bit, and textures don't always feel in harmony (especially walls and floors).
The "story" is unfortunately unexistent, apart for the starting dialogue there's nothing more to keep the mood and the humor and even the ending is nothing more than a "thank you for playing the game" with no outro making you question your sacrifices/ showing the pals drinking the beer together.
1.5/5 for me, but keep going on with new games!

Really fun game. I usually don't like puzzle games ,because i suck at them, but this was really good.

I loved this game. Visuals were both hilarious and creative, would love to see this expanded out more into something bigger. If you are curious about trying this game I recommend giving it a go, it has originality and charm, two things that a lot of games miss out on these days. If you want a taste of the gameplay I made a lets play of the game. Thanks to the developers for posting this game, and I hope you make more!


Made a video

if you pick up an item and then use it to hang off of a ledge, your character drops the item. this makes the game much easier, as you can use these to get up onto the wooden beams in the walls and walk to the exit of several levels

I had a blast with this game! Entirely creative and I was surprised when the guys got crushed! I almost didn't notice it at first! Wish there was more to it! Keep up the great work! Hope you don't mind me adding my video to the pile! XD

Great game.

(+1)

Constantly impressed with how much you get done during these jams!

10/10

how did you make a game this good in 72 hours?

This game was so much fun! I loved the music!

Really had fun with this game! The setting was unique and the puzzles have you thinking a bit outside the box. Great job Nick Zangus! What do we have to look forwards to for the future? 

Cute and fun. Love the art and music,  and I think if the Rogues that I called can dress different colors it will be more interesting. Nice game :)

another insane game!! never fail to make a great game :D keep up the great work dude!! :D 

Nice little game :) I like the art style and the theme :D Good job!

But why the dudes can't lay down the objects anymore?^^

Very fun game! Loved the look of it and the music fit great. All around good job!


Really a nice game, i wanna see more levels of it! The dialogue was nice and funny and the music was very fitting imo, the artstyle was great! Keep up the great work

This looks like something worth speedrunning. I'm setting up a leaderboard for it on speedrun.com. I'll reply once its accepted.

It's already been accepted.

i know, i moderate it

noice

Very clever! I couldn't help but feel bad at the countless Rogues I murdered unintentionally. Feels very polished and is one of my favorite experiences from LD43 I've played. Will always be looking forward to future releases.

Dude i have just black screen ang music after launching the level (web) :(

Hi! Which platform and browser are you using? Could you try another browser? If it does not work, you can download the executable version.

Windows10/Chrome 70.0.3538.102 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I've checked gameplays and found that 3d graphics doesn't appear for some reason (even in the menu)
Ok, I'll use windows build ;)

I found a way to duplicate objects.(please do not remove it. it is a lot of fun for after you complete the game) so first you have both your rogues standing near water, one of your rogues should be holding an object. have the one holding the object fall into the water and as it goes below the water grab it(it will switch the camera to the other one automatically as the one holding the object dies). put it in the corner and then repeat(make sure to grab the one from where it spawns or they wont duplicate. ) have fun with this and build or do anything you could want with infinite items.

Hey man! I absolutely loved this! You smashed it out of the park, hope you enjoy my feedback :) Hoping you release even more levels!

Really good game! both style and gameplay stands out from all the rest. Great job.

The game is really cool, i like the puzzles, graphics, style...

The game was a nice little puzzle game from the puzzles, the look of the game, and the little potato men. I'd love to see this extended further to add more difficulty to the mix. This was the third game I played.
