Patreon + Discord

Hi, sorry if this news post is annoying, but I thought I'd maximize my reach. I have a Patreon now, along with an discord server. That is if you want to give a dumbass like me money.

I also have a Discord server now, but I will only talk in the Patreon channel. There is a non-Patreon channel however to talk to fellow players.

Thanks for playing B-Man.

Boring Man v1.2.7.1 is now available

Windows played a cool prank on me and deleted all of my BMAPSAVE files, which is used to edit maps. I had to decrypt and load the BMAP files (the map files you load in-game) into the map editor manually to recover them.

All of the maps are still precisely the same, but it juggled their md5 hash values which are used to check if you have the correct map for the server, so I need to push a version number to make sure everyone has these newly compiled maps.

All the other stuff may or may not be already in the previous version, they are just in the change log for documentation purposes.

Also like I said hundreds of times, I will continue bug fix updates as long as needed, so if I hear "OMGGG YOURE STILL UPDATING" I will unpin a grenade and leave it in your adventure time onesie.

- Added being able to use Ctrl + V for text input while in the menu
- Removed XP gain from capturing flags and control points
- Removed the ability to get achievements on custom maps
- Fixed players not being limited to level 100 correctly
- Fixed the TDM flag giving an additional point if you cap it at the end of the round
- Fixed ‘Cool Island Song ‘and ‘Zoned’ achievements not unlocking correctly in some instances
- Fixed the random loadout button not working correctly if you click it before spawning
- Fixed the random loadout button not spawning Old Weapons and the jetpack correctly
- The random loadout button will now default you to the “Custom” loadout when selected
- Fixed the suicide vest going off the next round in TDM if activated before round end
- Fixed a few bits of misinformation in the menu
- Fixed hidden spikes on The Man side in Dyson City

“A single amateur game developer did this, and it’s rare to see a stickman game flaunting these small details.”
Indie Statik

“The only thing we’re not sure about is the title, Boring Man is a lot of things, but it’s definitely not boring!”

An easy made, addicting, stickman storylined shooter. You can turn off gore, which is good for the kids who enjoy these games. You can play lots of different gamemodes, from singleplayer AI bots to multiplayer team deathmatches. If you are a guy who wants a kid-friendly, addicting shooter, you're at the right place! I reccomend it for ages 9 and up!

Since I'm terrible at reviewing things, so I'm just going to list some pros and cons.

  • Lots of weapons (80 in total)
  • Weapon variety (you can pick from a basic pistol to a flipping pineapple)
  • You can run this on a potato
  • 7 different modes (Deathmatch, take over, capture the flag ect.)
  • There are clans, I guess


  • You have to portforward to allow other players to join your server. (this isn't very hard and usually only takes a couple of minutes to do)

  • Very small player base
  • The hit detection is awful on Spasman's servers if you live anywhere outside of America (This can be solved by hosting your own server though)
  • Some gamemodes/servers are almost always empty (weapons deal being the main one)

It's a free game, so what have you got to lose?

(I know I've spent an absolutely obscene amount of time playing this...)

This game makes me want to rip my Weener off and wear it as a hat. It is a kind of a fun game though (when I'm not raging).
