Put down that skipping rope and gym bag. It's time to hit the basement!

Antagonists have taken over the basements of the world. It's your duty as shut-in warriors to clear these sacred battlegrounds. Based on classic arcade games like Robotron 2084, Neckbeards is non-stop action for one or two players with an epic soundtrack and a taste for psychedelia.

  • Choose your champion from a posse of amazing protagonists, including a badass beta male, a racy spinster, and a fearsome basement dweller (with mad punching skills)!
  • Face a hundred levels full of insane Chads, trolls, and hundreds of other foes. Protect mom in the garden levels or you'll never, ever get dessert again!
  • Do mortal battle with special enemies, each more special (and weird) than the last!
  • Heal your wounds with some delicious junk food or high-quality medicinal herb!
  • Clear each level in time - or face the fearsome school shooter. Natural selection, baby!

UPDATE: It is working properly now.

There may be issues if you try to run it straight from the installer. We're looking into this.

Game will not bring up visuals upon startup. Just a black screen. Audio seems to be working correctly though.
