A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Rhyming Roast 'em Up!

This is a game about challenging animals to rap battles for the right to roast and eat them, to summon and challenge the great God of Rap.

Progress through 3 Dance Dance Revolution style rap battles, to prove your fire burns the hottest!


About 5-10 minutes

* 3 radical rap battles
* 5 original beats
* You can quite literally roast a fish in a rap battle
* Unless you lose, the fish eats you then


* WASD or arrow keys to move and rap
* Space to interact with characters, and progress dialogue
* Close the game to quit

Content warnings
* Game should be suitable for minors
* *Implied cartoon violence* (screen jumps to black, an eating noise is heard, and when the screen returns an opponent is no longer there). This can happen to the human main character, a dog, a fish, or a cloaked figure.

Other than that, there is no physical aggression, bad language, or sensitive topics covered in the lyrics.

If you find anything in the game you would deem needing of a warning, please let me know and I'll add it!

As a rhythm game, the challenge faced will vary greatly depending on the user. The game is designed to give a sense of challenge to all but experienced rhythm game players, but still be fully beatable by most.

Difficulty setting is on the roadmap for the post-jam version, but in the meantime if you find the game too challenging and want an easier version, please let me know and I'll send you a tailored build.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts, issues, or just nice things to say!
Mac and Linux builds not currently tested, please let me know if they worked for you.

I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hehe, this was fun =) 


I had so much fun with it, amazing experience! And I am amazed about how you could pull that off for the compo, because the graphics and animations are so well done. Keep it up! 


This really brought joy to my day! Love the idea, the humor, and the art style/vibe. I was gleefully hoping that the "crunch" would appear again after roasting God -- which would imply that I ate him -- and laughed when it did indeed appear on the screen. One thing that came to mind was how hard it was to read the player's rap while playing the rhythm game. It would be great to at least have a chance to read the verse after a rap is over. 

I'm glad I downloaded this :D
