Only One Week Left to Win Your Mug!



Do you want a unique coffee mug proclaiming how GREAT you are? And how you're not even Patchman? Well, you have until the end of December to log your score on our leaderboards.

CLAIMING TOP SPOT

We currently have 14 eligible top slots to claim, at least two of which are *completely* blank! That means no other competition for those slots (Fastest Time, Level 7/8). There are even some boards that have only a single entry or very few entries. So your chances of placing are quite high right now, as compared to say a year from now when the boards will potentially be more clogged up!



A handy list of all the leaderboards, plus more info+rules:

MUG PREVIEW

Concept of the mug design (will be improved+finalized after contest):



EPISODE TWO

Works progresses nicely on Episode Two! We are super excited about it. Here is an early screenshot of Patchman finding the Square Boss:



There will be a lot more info in January. For anyone interested and able to help push my development forward at a faster pace, I've started a Patreon.

HAPPY SHEEPLEDAYS

Merry XMAS to all, and to all be not Patchman!

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!

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!
