Description

You are YEETUS! Your weapon? The very floor beneath your feet! YEET your surrounding terrain into destructive projectiles. Be strategic, though. A hasty shot may mean a long fall down to your doom in YEETUS, a casual time survivor game with roguelite elements.

Balance offense and defense! The action here isn't just about YEETing away, but accurately aiming your shots to make sure you're not destroying too much of your own battleground!

Upgrade and Evolve!

Enhance your strategy with a wealth of upgrades waiting to be unlocked. Each run will play differently depending on your upgrade choices. Focus on defense and maneuverability or strive for maximum power? The choice is yours! Each game will also give you gold you can use to purchase permanent upgrades so each run will not only help you improve not only your YEETing skills but also your YEETUS’ powers!

The Forces of Evil

Square off against alien monstrosities from other dimensions! Each enemy tests your strategy, aim and reaction time, requiring a strong command of your YEET! The biters will get up-close and personal, while tentacle stars like to shoot at you from a distance. Big boomers will sneak up on you and blow up, taking a lot of your precious terrain with them if you’re not careful!

The YEETUS family

As you play you will unlock new levels and characters. You start playing as the balanced Yeetus Regulus; his special skill gives you guaranteed critical shots and doubles tile regeneration. Later step into the speedy boots of Yeetus Speedus, a swifter but fragile choice with a dash skill. Then lastly you will be able to take on the role of the tanky Yeetus Maximus, a slower brute force with more health, damage, and a damage reflecting berserk buff as his special skill.

YEETUS

With mechanics that are easy to pick up but hard to master and the power of YEETing on your side, YEETUS is a fresh take on the rogue-lite time-survivor genre, making you focus not only on your aim but also your positioning as you fight to avoid a painful fall to your death.

The ground is your weapon, how will you wield it?

History

The game was originally made as a game jam game for the Ludum Dare. It is our first game made using the Godot Engine after a long time using Unity. The game turned out quite fun and we decided to develop it further devoting an extra month to add more content, upgrades, characters, skills and such.

  • 3 Unlockable Characters with different skills and playstyle.
  • 3 Levels with different visuals and music.
  • 24 in-run upgrades to change your gameplay
