I’ve been sitting on this news a while, wondering if any of the other major outlets would jump on it. It’s about a new game. The name?

Dudebro, My Sh*t Is F*cked Up So I Got To Shoot/Slice You II: It’s Straight-Up Dawg Time.

Let that name sink in a moment. Ready? Let’s continue.

Dubebro II is the freshman project by Grimoire Assembly Forge, a collection of a hundred or so NeoGAF volunteers who have come together to turn an in-joke into an actual game. The story behind its inception is the stuff of Internet legends; if you want all the details, I suggest sifting through the game’s wiki at your leisure.

In December of last year, NeoGAF member cuyahoga started a thread about his positive experience renting Imagine: Babyz Fashion. After enduring several accusations of being a pedophile, cuyahoga responded, “So, I’m a pedophile because I don’t want to play Dudebro, My Sh*t Is F*cked Up So I Got To Shoot/Slice You II: It’s Straight-Up Dawg Time? To throw around these sort of accusations at someone who seeks to do something different suggests quite the insecurity on your part.”

After that outburst, commenters imagined what such a game would be like. They whipped up image macros, all of which have been gathered here, and nailed down critical gameplay mechanics. With all these ideas, there was no way this game wasn’t going to be made.

Developed on the Unity engine for the PC, Dudebro II is a top-down shooter not unlike Smash TV. Why the “II” in the title? Because sequels are always better than the original! Duh!

Naturally, the whole thing is a parody of the popular perception of gaming as one excessively violent, male power fantasy after another. Ya know, “hardcore” games! You don’t have a health bar, you have a brodiocity meter! You rescue hot babes who surround you and protect you from harm! And when you beat the boss, you can fist bump its spirit to send it to dude heaven!

And the crowning glory? John St. John, Duke Nukem himself, is on board as the voice of lead dude John Dudebro. Excited yet?

A brief demo has been uploaded to illustrate basic design concepts. You gotta play it just for the game over message! Dudebro (with placeholder VA) remarks, “I don’t need any f*ckin’ casuals on muh team! Go back to yer exercise games!”

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

Keep an eye out on the project’s main page. Something is bound to pop up there eventually. In the meantime, read that title over and over and try not to crack a smile.

Dudebro, My Sh*t Is F*cked Up So I Got To Shoot/Slice You II: It’s Straight-Up Dawg Time.

Oh God! I can’t keep a straight face! I just can’t!

  1. Sounds like something Chuck Norris would approve of.

    Being a bro isn’t always fun and games though:
