Butterscotch Minis & Jam Games (A List)

Tiny games made by the Butterscotch Bros, typically in under 48 hours!
SUP BSCOTCHES! Here I'll try to keep an up-to-date list of all our minigames/jam games and where/how you can play them (if at all possible).

Minis
These are little games that we made super fast and then published somewhere!

Flop Rocket (10 hours) [Android] [Video]
You're a test pilot for an extremely underfunded space program. So underfunded, in fact, that the only real estate your space program could afford for its launch pad happens to be in the depths of an infinite underground cave system. The future of our space program rests on your shoulders!

Roid Rage (12 hours)[Android] [Gameplay Video] [Dev Timelapse Video]
SUP, SPACE PILOT. Our JUICE tanker crashed and spilled a fat load of JUICE into a nearby asteroid field, and we need someone to GET IN THERE and recover all that SWEET, SWEET JUICE. You're the best person for the job, because you happened to be nearby and you've got an infinite supply of extremely fragile space ships. Just think of this as an unpaid internship.

Freeway Mutant (10 hours)
[No longer published]
Run wild on the freeway in a lush American suburb. Collect uranium, bolts, gold, and your enemies' kidneys to craft a fierce array of guns to display JUST HOW ALPHA YOUR MUTANTNESS IS.

Extreme Burger Defense (10 hours)
[No longer published]
You're a scientist who just made LITERALLY THE TASTIEST BURGER EVER. The problem? It attracts EVERY SINGLE BEAR. Place towers of sciency death around the forest to fend off an ever-embiggening wave of bar-BEAR-ians.

Jam Games
These are games we made for Game Jam-style events, including competitions and the like!

DO YOU EVEN LIFT?! - Indie Speed Run 2015 [Windows]
Seems the Bureau of Science accidentally set loose a GOOPIDEMIC. Now they're callin' us in to clean up the mess.

Use the ELEVATOR (W/S keys) to bring those frilly WORKERS up to the rooftop for extraction. Our mercenaries will ride down to take care of any Goopoids along the way. You'll also have full access to the facility's door system - open and close those doors (left-click) to keep workers safe and let our mercs in.

You'll earn some of that precious space coin whenever you save a worker. Make sure to spend it outfittin' our Mercs so we can handle harder contracts - they pay the big bucks.

Torso Demon Saga - Global Game Jam 2014 [Windows] [Video]
You and your buddy are limbless demons trapped in the evil catacombs of the Torchpixies. Murder torchpixies with your stretchy rope fire while avoiding the mouths of ravenous shadowbeasts! Play with two Xbox or Playstation controllers!

Shep Hard - 2nd Place, Indie Speed Run 2013 [Windows] [Video]
Become a dual-eyepatched maniacal shepherd who just wants to live out his lifelong dream of collecting 10 platinum sheep.

Shucks! - BscotchJam (8 hours) [Windows] [Video]
Or, better known as its full title, "Shucks, I crashed my ship on some horrible planet and now I have to explode heads until I find the right parts (so I can rebuild my ship and leave)." We really let the title do the narrative heavy lifting on this one.

I CAN'T SEE SHIT! - BscotchJam (8 hours) [Windows] [Video]
Become a blind turnip in a deep underground network of death and despair. Then fling your squealy voice around to reveal the environment. It's fun for the whole family!

Xtreme Slothcycling - BscotchJam (8 hours) [Windows] [Video]
Become a rabbit riding a sloth as he ab-rolls his way across the countryside! How far can you go? Answer: probably 7 or so.

Quadropus Rampage (Original) - 7-Day Roguelike Challenge [Windows] [Video]
The Quadropus Rampage you all know and love. But did you know it was originally made for a game jam? Check out the ORIGINAL Quadropus Rampage here!

I Know CPR! - Global Game Jam 2013 [Windows] [Mac] [Video]
This game takes two players: one to run around while repeatedly having a series of heart attacks, and another to beat the first player in the chest rhythmically to keep his heart from exploding.

Bread Brothers - St Louis Summer Jam 2012 [Windows]
Also a two-player game! Slap your slices together, plug in some controllers, and use your bread guns to defeat a never-ending onslaught of poorly optimized knives. Probably one of the worst things we made, but we love it for some reason.

Towelfight of the Gods - Global Game Jam 2012 [Windows] [Video]
This was made BEFORE BUTTERSCOTCH SHENANIGANS EVEN EXISTED! But it was the very first game[/b] Sam and I made as a two-person team. Around the time we finished this, Sam looked at me and said, "You know, I feel like... we could actually... make games for real." So then we did.

I have played............... not as many of them as I thought. I am a terrible fan. *seppuku*

Although this reminds me I need to acquire ShepHard. I actually watched you guys making that (was that one you streamed? Or maybe I just saw the vid when it first came out) and I wanted it but it wasn't released yet.

I think we just released a Youtube video after the fact. And yeah, we weren't allowed to make it available to the public until judging was over! BOOOO!

Bread Brothers link is dead. I played/tried almost all of these.



I don't know why but i loved Extreme Burger Defense, even if it was far from a finished game, and passed so time on Freeway Mutant. I think it is my personal best with Shep Hard.
Just tried I know CPR and it's pretty hard but fun concept. Can't play Torso Demon Saga i don't have controllers :/

Fixed Bread Bros! It's a two-player game, though.

I wanted to play it badass and write "When you're alone, it's not a two-player game, it's a brain challenge". Turns out the challenge was too hard. It seems pretty nice though.

You scary when you're pitch shifted down. Gotta get you on a creature fo sho. I Can't See Shit is one of my fav jams you guys did. I think that kind of game works better as a platformer. I've seen someone do an idea kind of like that in FPS form with ink shooting onto terrain, but it doesn't look fun at all. My bro loved Quadropus, I got him hooked on it recently during a vacation and he kept laughing out of nowhere at the weapon names while we were hanging out at the hotel. It was awkward.

HA! I pitched it down and added some kind of reverb to it or something.
I've seen a few "blind" concepts in first-person as well, but I agree that the platformer thang works a bit better. We have had some talk about taking time to flesh out I Can't See Shit as a much larger puzzle platformer. It could definitely be a crazy exercise in memory and skill, if we built it right.
TOO MANY PROJECTS!
