Just wanted to say that I booted this up again today and it's still so fun, really appreciate the work.
A downloadable game for Windows
BOG is a lil shared-screen stealth-combat game.
It's still a work in progress, and there are definitely some known bugs.
Hopefully I'm already working on any weirdness you notice, but please do get in touch if you have any feedback/issues, it's hugely appreciated.
Find me here:
BOG does well with a desktop-class CPU, but can run on laptops as well. It's still playable below 60fps but you can turn on a framerate toggle in the options to see if how you're doing. Try knocking the grass density down a little bit if it's slow.
Meanwhile I'll keep hacking away in the emerald mines of shader code knowledge to hopefully make it smoother for everybody.
What you'll need to play:
2 relatively modern usb controllers to connect, and a friend to play with.
Note some controllers require 3rd party drivers I can't vouch for. Be wary of the PS3 stuff on windows especially. :|
How to play:
X to slash.
A to dash.
A then X to strike.
B to duck.
Y to wiggle grass while you're ducked.
You can hide in the grass while ducking, Wiggle to find yourself, and try to spot the Wiggles of your opponent.
Dashing into an opponent will Check them, and potentially knock them out of the arena.
Slashing while Dashing will yield a Strike; a further-reaching and more focused attack.
Kill your opponent before they kill you.
Just unpack, play, and then let me know what you think.

Hey! I want to let you know that I've played BOG with basically all my gamer friends, it has been a bliss every time and very often they asked me the name back. This game is very very awesome!
I am eager for a 4 player mode too, and I will keep myself updated in case you have the time and motivation to make it happen :)
Great game, just waiting for four player mode.
Yannish, we need an update haha Put it on steam early access. I'll buy it. It's been 4 years since my last comment! I out of blue thought about this game, and thought I'd check to see if there was an update. I still boot it up and play with my brothers when we all get together.
Really sorry to perpetually disappoint Kuro. Life's been hectic, & this year's been pretty shit. Find me on twitter, @yannish, & I'll try send you a lil something I've been working on. Won't be very playable, but, would be curious what you think.
Completely understand.. This year's been insane. Hope things slow down a little for you. I would be more than happy to test out that lil something for you. Followed. Send it my way!
I'm sorry to hear that life hasn't been treating you too well lately :/ This game is a treasure and I also really hope you can find the time to update it some more. It's such a blast!
Anybody know if PS4 controllers work? (Bluetooth)
This game is awesome. I fell in love with it. The art style is gorgeous, the gameplay is super fun and dynamic. Great job and I hope to see more of your work in the work future. Great job !
Very delayed reply, but, thanks MatthY. Really appreciat it. :) Still chipping away at it. We'll see if I can get some improvements out to you.
The game was awesome! I know lots of people say that the controllers don't work but I used my Xbox Controllers and it worked great. I loved the game and the mechanics are VERY original. Anyways thanks for the game, it's an awesome work.
The game does not pick up on one of my controllers
i soo sneaky
i cant seem to start the game. i can only use arrow keys and ESC and The Analog on my controller.,.
will there be a mac version
Still planning on working on this or did you trash it?
controllers don't work, the game doesn't recognize them, only cursor keys and ESC work
what type of controller are you using?
I've got XboxOne and Speedlink Xeox Pro Analog controllers.
I am sorry for the trouble. It's been quite a while since I've updated this build, the plugin which handles different controller types may be out of date and unable to handle the speedlink (the Xbone controller really ought to work though, so that's a bit strange). Apologies.
did u find the fix yet?
Dude that game is possible on pc? I don't have controller......
'fraid you do need a pair of controllers to play. It's local multiplayer, so two people controlling with mice & keyboard would be tricky
How do I start the game on pc? Is this possible? (I cant select)
are you using a controller, i a 360 or ps4 or xbone?
Hey love the game! Will there be any updates soon? Like 4 player coop?
Hey Kuro, thanks for checking it out. I'd like to get 4p versus in there at some point. I've been focused on optimizing the grass though. Working a day job in the games industry has made me pretty slow though. :( You can follow me here and on twitter, I'll let it be known when I kick a new one out.
My friends and I love getting together to play some good old local multiplayer and this is fantastic! Really great concept, engaging mechanics, and interesting atmosphere!
Thanks Jer. Really appreciate you checking it out. Come back soon, I've fixed some bugs and implemented a couple other little goodies. Should be uploaded tomorrow or later this week. :)
Already so much fun to play. Can't wait to see where it goes.
