Welcome to Silicon Island,
where you are the only
programmer in town!

Story

You work from home for BoringSoft, a software company that develops boring products. You enjoy the simple life of diskettes and dial-up connections, until one day your boss ruins it with an email. He sends you some files to review, but as soon as you open them, your computer explodes and releases a swarm of bugs that infect the island. Now you have to fix your computer, squash the bugs, and save your job before you get fired!

Gameplay

The Bugger! is a fun short roleplaying game in a 1-bit isometric pixel art style. You will travel around the island, find items, help other quirky islanders, play mini games, and fight the bugs!

Can you fix the bugs and keep your job?

About the developer

Hi everyone! My name is Bas Tempelman and I'm excited to introduce you to my hobby project, The Bugger! For the past two years, I've been developing this game in my spare time while working full time in a different profession. The idea for The Bugger! came to me during the Covid pandemic and, although I wasn't sure where it would lead or how long it would take to complete, I'm thrilled to finally share it with you. I hope you have as much fun playing it as I had creating it!
