A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Epic Journey

My submission for Butterscotch Shenanijam 2019. Play as Hubert the alien on a quest to collect DNA from all lifeforms. Beware of powerful random-generated enemies and loot boxes!


  • WASD/ANALOG STICK - Move Hubert
  • SPACE/A - Jump
  • SHIFT/X - Fire Weapon

Ethical Surprise Mechanics

Fill the DNA meter by killing enemies. When the meter reaches 100%, you will unlock a loot box! Your reward will be a random weapon or a health pack that increases maximum health.

  • Mozart
  • Totally Ethical Surprise Mechanics
