Update 1.0.4 - Finishing Touches

This is an update that addresses some minor issues I've encountered in the past few months.

  • Added a button to the settings that allows players to reset their achievement progress.
  • Achievements are now disabled while playing multiplayer or without CPUs. Sorry!
  • Pressing the shoot button once the game ends returns to the menu. I noticed that the escape key wasn't super obvious.
  • Erasers are a bit more common.
  • Fixed a crash that would happen after a few seconds of playing with a 120 second timer.
  • Fixed an issue where the colored arrows would start pointing too soon with a 60 second timer.
  • Updated the intro credits to replace my changed username.

Super lame update, I know. I'm not abandoning this game at all, but my priorities are currently elsewhere.

About This Game

Outside the Lines is a free top-down shooter where drawing utensils compete to cover a coloring book with their color.


  • A colorful cast of three characters with different abilities. Only one of them doesn't have alliteration in its name!
  • Fast-paced gameplay with short rounds. Watching paint dry has never been more exciting!
  • Eleven different weapons with randomized stats, such as a cotton swab, a dish sponge, and a paintball shotgun.
  • Local multiplayer for two players with a co-op and a competitive mode. Ruin friendships, and then build them back!
  • Sometimes an eraser dude shows up. He's scary.
  • This game was originally made in three days for a game jam. Obviously this version of the game took longer but I just wanted to share that.
  • It's free. Like, no microtransactions or anything. I'm literally not making any money from this.
