Five Languages Added!

Japanese, French, Russian, Spanish, and German!



Full menu, story, comic book, and level name translations (basically everything important in the game) have been added to our game. With the help of many friends, who just happen to be fluent in these languages, the game was translated.



One caveat: the store pages and title images were not translated, but everything in the game past the splash screen is! And even the splash screen provides the translation for that art.



These are all the languages supported. If it has a thought bubble that means fully supported, otherwise it's just translated for menus.



LOL!

Out of Early Access

Launch is a go!!



Don't be Patchman? But you ARE Patchman! So how do you stop being him? We can think of one way...

We've built, played, battered, and finalized the first episode of the game. Twenty Steam Achievements are ready to be collected, we're running a Leaderboard contest, you can start collecting the comic book, and begin figuring out the mystery of why YOU shouldn't be Patchman. Who? Well, come along with us and find out. We have so much to show you... epic plot twists, mind-blowing theme, and all that.

Later, when we add more episodes, this Steam package will contain them for FREE! I must apologize as the budget behind this game is tiny and as such the technical visual quality isn't as amazing as your average game is expected to be these days. But what we lack in tech we made up for in clever gameplay and unique story!

You can enter our leaderboard contest to win a coffee mug just by playing on Steam, but we'll have one more never-done-before contest announced next week. It should be a doozy!

cheers

About This Game



The Sheeple are in trouble - they've been enslaved by the Drones - and it's all Patchman's fault! Now it's up to you to redeem Patchman, rescue the Sheeple, and uncover the awful secret behind the Drone army. Stay out of sight, wear clever disguises, search the forest for seeds, grow fruits and plants, tear down propaganda, awaken the Sheeple to break the control scheme, and power down those nasty robots! Featuring gaming's first anti-anti hero: Patchman, who you are, but aren't supposed to be! Make sense?

All that and more awaits in Don't Be Patchman, a sneak-and-grow adventure featuring realtime isometric action, procedural generation, colorful pixel art, disruptable economic system, stealth mechanics, farming combat, advanced enemy ai, tower defense, collectible comic book with epic plot twists, and more! Patchman vs. Red Circles is the complete standalone first episode of this game, but this package will also contain all future episodes as free add-ons!

Available now on SteamOS / Linux, Windows and Mac OSX. Includes Steam Achievements, Leaderboards, and Trading Cards! Playable with a gamepad, Steam controller, mouse+keyboard, or solo keyboard.

So... who is Patchman and why shouldn't you be him? Find out in the game THEY don't want you to play!
