"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".

We played the game! (that’s the theme of this blog post)

Hello! We are back, as usual, with another monthly report. This time there aren’t a lot of news and things to announce, but we need to keep the tradition, so let’s talk about the most exciting one for now:


We invited few testers and set them down to play “Dude, Stop” from start to finish while we watched! And it was... fun! First of all - they all finished the game! Nothing crashed, there were no game-breaking bugs, all puzzles were clear to understand and solvable, and we even heard some laughs and giggles! One comment was even “I want to play it again”! Can you imagine this?! “Again!” This is just... oh. So cool!


6 PAGES OF IT, to be exact! It was great overall, but still not all positive and shiny - there were many bugs and problems! Mostly in the same vein, like, “move that” and “change color here”, which isn’t hard to fix, but still quite time-consuming. But hey, last time it was 10 pages of game breaking bugs, so I’ll call it a success after all!


This, and more in our latest blog post! Please, click the link below to read it and peek at NEW GIFS AND SCREENSHOTS! We will appreciate it!

Still, we need to inform you that testing was done without the new voice. We do have subtitles and we did test all the lines, and now we have 50+ places in the script that sound weird, so we need to fix those before we move on to the last major development step. But that’s gonna be our next post! See ya then!


Aaaand how could we end this without our social media links:

Current progress (September)

We have 100 puzzles ready! Yes! It’s so cool! You can start the game and play any puzzle you want. First puzzle, for example. Or second. Maybe third, if you feel like it. Ooh, you’ll like the fourth! And the fifth!.. OK-ok, let’s calm down and start from the top. *breath in, breath out*

Welcome, reader of Current Progress!

Today’s monthly progress report will be more about numbers, since most of the stuff is finally coded in and won’t change much (only improves). So let’s get to numbers.

  • 13 packs
  • 100 puzzles
  • 65 trophies
  • 900+ voiced events
  • 1500+ subtitle lines
  • 450+ unique text endings for puzzles
  • 400+ sound effects
  • And 3 new gifs to share!
You can find a more detailed explanation regarding those numbers in our latest blog post: http://patomkin.com/s/100-puzzles Also, 2 more gifs and 4 screenshots!


Voiceover is still a big task for us, but at least now the script is ready and there is technology to implement it easily. Other, smaller, tasks are: sounds, music, Steam achievements and couple improvements here and there...

But the most time-consuming task for us will be to playtest the game. After all, we want the game get mad at you for breaking stuff and not other way around! And that’s why game won’t come out in the next month. And not even in the month after that. We hope you’ll still be with us then! :)

About This Game

"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.

Key features:

  • 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

* unless you count them. Please don't count them
