What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want the game to be shaped by feedback from players! I plan on continuing to add content to this game over time and want it to be geared towards what makes it more enjoyable and exciting for players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I anticipate it being in early access for 4-6 months, though I may extend that if it feels necessary in order to fully release a more quality game (or shorten it if it feels ready).”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More characters, levels, character customization items, and music, as well as Steam Achievements and possibly Steam Points Shop items.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“4 characters, 4 levels, 39+ character customization items, custom player name, keyboard and controller remapping, and basic settings. The larger level can accommodate up to 15 or so players before it potentially gets absurdly chaotic.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will be lower during early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will be engaging with players through the Steam Discussion Forum, as well as on my Twitch stream, Discord, social media, and by email at support@manadream.games”

About This Game

A food-fight, reverse battle royale where everybody stays in the game until one player gives out all their items and remains empty handed to win.



Choose your anthropomorphic vending machine and get to food tossin'!

  • Hectic and simple platforming gameplay. Dodge food and throw food!

  • Customize your character with different colors, effects, trails and even buddies!

  • 90's Inspired pixel art and FM-Synth-heavy, Jazzical music

  • Levels in various locations such as a mall and the French Quarter, with a junkyard, a radio tower and more to come!

  • Join the public lobby or create private lobbies for you and your friends to play!

Humanity is gone, all that remains is the tech they left behind. Learn from their mistakes, be generous and care about others! :)

Made with game engine LÖVE, pixel art tool Aseprite and music tracker Milkytracker.

This project is under active development with new customizations, characters and levels added routinely!

The story behind Shell Out Showdown

Shell Out Showdown is part of what has retroactively been termed a "molasses jam" run by the Bay Area Dev Collective. The theme of the jam was to make a violent genre non-violent. I picked the battle royale genre as it tends to be dominated by violent games, and Shell Out Showdown eventually came to life!

The other molasses game jam games are also on Steam:
