So, a lot of GAF probably doesn't know this game exists, because its inception and evolution took place within the Imagine: Babyz Fashion thread.
(Read the wiki here)
If you're curious how we first came up with the name, you can thank cuyahoga for coining the title:
cuyahoga said:So, I'm a pedophile because I don't want to play Dudebro, My Shit is Fucked 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.
This was followed by Nintex's fantastic cover Photoshop:
Which then served as the inspiration for Jocchan's original concept art of Dudebro:
I thought Dudebro could use some dialogue (mostly for the lulz), and got some help from Plagiarize to tighten it up:
It is the year 21XX. B.R.O Alliance Forces roll across the Middle East. Shit has gotten real. Like totally less ethereal.
The hot vaguely Middle Eastern sun beats down onto the sand as explosions deafen the years and dust obscures visions. A tent sits just meters behind the frontline, its loose fabric flapping in the wind like a ladys CENSORED after our hero is done with her.
Inside, a scar-faced general stands in front of a tactical map. Several soldiers sit before him, but only one there matters. His mane is glorious, and his stare an icy, deadly one.
Dude, the general growls, weve called you in from the frontlines for a very important mission.
How much more fucked sideways can it get? Dudebro growls, stroking his beard and beating women off with a stick.
We have reason to believe that Pesquali, one of the most dangerous terrorists to ever live is alive, and hes selling weapons to the Middle East.
All of it.
"That's my favourite part. You want me to fuck the whole area in the general area if you get what I mean?
"No." The general sticks a Polaroid picture of the eye-scarred and mustachioed Pesquali on the map.
Pesquali is mine, Dudebro roars. He fucked my shit up, so Im going to have to shoot him right in the man berries. The sugalumps if you like that indie shit.
Or slice him, Dudebros sidekick Chicken interjects.
Yes, or Kimbo Slice him, Dudebro responds as he chews menacingly on his own tongue. With a shank, or a gold dipped used lady torpedo. I havent decided which yet.
Youre going to have a lot of time to make your choice, Dudebro, the general says. Pesquali was just spotted in Mexico City. Follow the guns, find our man.
As Chicken and Dudebro step out of the tent, the wind begins the pick up, and sand begins to black out the sky.
Are we leaving immediately, Dude? Chicken asks.
Eff yeah, Chicken, Dudebro answers. Its Straight-up Dawg Time, and I'm the straightest dawg around. Every female name you can imagine, I've done a bitch called that. Just sayin.
Things spun out of control after that.
Thanks for collecting that in one place, Danthrax.
With the help with lots of people in the GAF community, I'm working on a script for Dudebro, Jocchan is working on concept art and design, and Mik2121 is doing modeling.
So, what IS Dudebro?
Dudebro is the most macho of top down shooters, with wacky bosses and hordes of enemies that want to see Dudebro in dudely coffin.
For more details on the game, check the design doc.
Can I help?
Hell yeah. We still need programmers, more artists, environment and character artists to help Mik, etc.
Is there a site?
What kind of game would Dudebro be without a site? If you're really feeling adventurous, why not follow Dudebro's twitter feed? Dudebro also has a brodacious page on Facebook!
I want to show so much more, but I don't think we're ready yet. We're posting like mad in the Babyz Fashion thread still, so I'll make sure that everyone starts posting here instead.
The current crew is listed on the wiki's Team Members page.
