It’s not hard to believe that this started on NeoGAF; what makes it more amusing is the fact that it started when forum member cuyahoga declared his love for the Nintendo DS game Imagine: Babyz Fashion. People start ganging up on him, one of them calls him a pedophile, and he replies (it’s post #73): “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.” And thus, on December 7, 2009, Dudebro was born.
Dudebro, My Shit is Fucked Up So I Got to Shoot/Slice You II: It’s Straight-Up Dawg Time will be a top-down shooter with only one screen per level (like that zombie game in Kongregate, I forgot what it’s called), but that barely matters because obviously the draw will be in the humor that they pack in the game.
It’s currently in development by Grimoire Assembly Forge, a bunch of NeoGAF members who I think got together precisely to make Dudebro… I am not copy-pasting it again. The effect is wearing off. The game will be available as a digital download on its website, although I don’t know when it will be released. For more laughs and details, hit up the game’s official NeoGAF thread, and marvel/be disgusted at the power of free time.
