A downloadable game for Windows

A hardboiled noir detective shoots his inner demons away...

Made in 48 hours for the GameMaker's Toolkit Jam! (2017)

"Roaring Streets!" is a turn-based shooter in which every mechanic is tied to the arrow keys.


How does the submission match the jam's theme?

In "Roaring Streets", every mechanic can be controlled through the player's turn based movement. Move to evade enemies, or move into enemies to shoot them. But with every move, the game cycles through your inventory of weapons, forcing you to have to balance evasion, attacks, and gun types within a single movement. The movement mechanic serves a triple purpose!

The game currently runs on Windows only. Sorry!

 v intresting + great art

Really, really, really cool. Do you have any thoughts about releasing the source code for someone to possibly develop a level editor? This game mechanic could top Steed's Ending!

Thanks! Ending is soo satisfying. I don't know yet about releasing the source code, but I am planning on developing this game further, so I might try to build a level editor on my own.

Oh, okay! Great :) Either way!

Beautiful art style and the useage of the mechanics is brilliant. Very well done and for 48 hours a small masterpiece <3

Nice game!! I love turn-based behavior, quick blending animations between static steps (rain, smoke, drops, ...). Oh! I love the vignette pixel effect too.

Only just waiting for more levels! GOOD WORK!

Mac Os version it's possible? Ok i just easy ported the .exe with Wine/WineBottler. 

That was a lot of fun! The graphics felt incredible—and I do mean felt—the little hops were so splashy, and the gunfire felt so punchy! Incredible game.

The feel of the game and the mechanics are just fantastic, would love to see it fleshed out into a story driven experience of some kind!

This was so much fun, if it was a fully fleshed out game, it would probably be my favourite game ever!

This is brilliant and tons of fun!

:D I'm glad you found it fun! 

Cool mechanics :D

Thank you! 

Windows only, but runs great on Wine for Linux!

Good to hear!

Really cool! We want more levels!

Post-jam version! Post-jam version! Post-jam version!

Awesome game! I thought it was very clever to give the main mechanic of the genre a dual purpose. Also, very polished! I love it!

Very stylish. Very cool.

The world needs more Roaring Streets. Make it so.

This game is absolutely fantastic! I'd definitely love to see this project continued (and would absolutely be up for working on it)!

this is amazing!

Thanks!

I would love to see this game worked on more with more guns and enemies. Amazing game for only 48 hours. Definitely continue this project :)

Thanks! I'm pretty excited about expanding the gameplay!
