The Dope Game - The Stash - Updated

Hey dope fiends! Tonight we are pushing an update to The Stash DLC that updates the Android Edition of the game that is bundled inside. This fixes a few small issues with the game like the hospital interface showing up by default and removing some unused code from the desktop version.

Happy Halloween!

The Dope Game - Halloween Event Live

Hey dope fiends! The annual Halloween event is now live! It will run from today all the way until November 2nd.

If you didn't play it last year, it changes up all the areas of Starkham to Halloween-themed versions. Even the NPCs are getting in the mood and have dressed up in costumes. There is even a candy side-quest to get an achievement available. And, last but not least, all the drug names have been changed to candy names.

So go out there and slang that sugar!

About This Game


To escape the city of Starkham and start your new life, you get your friend Preston to set up a meeting with the local loanshark, Sweaty Mike. After foolishly borrowing $2,000 to start your fledgling drug dealing career, you embark on a timed mission to sell as many drugs as possible throughout the city. However, you must evade the police, make sure not to ♥♥♥♥ off the locals too much, and navigate an ever-changing drug market.

Visit locations like Crockfort, Pinky's Gun Emporium, Murphy's Lake, The Noose & Rafter Bar, Hillside, Saint Jaysus Memorial Hospital, and more to interact with people and buy or sell a variety of drugs. Almost everyone you meet can be fought or bartered with in some manner.

The Dope Game, the newest game from CoaguCo Industries, It is a take on John E. Dell's 1984 classic game Drugwars, where the player goes around New York City trying to make as much money as possible selling drugs while evading the police. But this isn't New York City. Or 1984. The Dope Game takes place in the fictional city of Starkham, Blannington, most infamously known from our previous games One Way To Die and Raise Your Own Clone.


The game features original music by Macabre Gandhi and fully hand-drawn art assets by GP Garcia. For those of you unfamiliar with the premise, here is a fancy list of game features:

  • 15 locations around Starkham
  • 16 different drugs to buy and sell
  • 35+ (barely) different weapons
  • 8 different game lengths to play
  • Listen to the old lady say lots of things on the bus (unlocks stuff sometimes)
  • Borrow money from the loanshark (and maybe pay it back)
  • Interact with (and fight) a variety of townspeople
  • Randomly lose drugs, money, or weapons and possibly find those of other players
  • Hire crew members to fight with you, including animals
  • Random generated crew members: names, weapons, health, damage
  • Full soundtrack by Macabre Gandhi
  • 25 Achievements
  • Fully hand-drawn game assets
  • Holiday, NSFW, and hard modes
  • A variety of random mechanics to make each game unique(ish)
  • Back up statistics on CoaguCo's server and Steam
  • Now with Russian localization


Owners of One Way To Die (dude, it's free) and/or Raise Your Own Clone will have access to additional bonuses in the game's special locations, The Finningan Brothers Fun Park and Dr. Stansfield's Cloning Lab, respectively.

The Fun Park provides a new NPC to interact with, Bill Finningan, as well as allowing you to sell your wares to park-goers. Owners of One Way To Die will get a random park animal for free after doing a favor for Mr. Finnigan and then heavy discounts on additional animals.

The Cloning Lab provides another new NPC, Dr. Stansfield's nephew Marsch, who allows you to stash drugs there for your next run. However, he may just do some of them. Owners of Raise Your Own Clone will also get heavy discounts on their storage fees and more strict care from Marsch with their belongings.
