You're an elementary school bully that plays by his own damn rules. Use your bullying skills to cheat your way through 6th grade in an effort to avoid boarding school.

Straight Bullyism is a turn-based, character-building RPG influenced by Fallout 3, Pokemon, Animal Crossing and The World's Hardest Game. Also, think of SB as half-game and half-cartoon, because there's a ton of cutscenes. Also, it took me *3 DAMN YEARS* to make!

WARNING: SB is a multi-part game; after completing level 1 you will be prompted to open level 2 in a new window on StraightBullyism.com. This is because the game was far too large to fit into one file, and I wasn't aware earlier of any way of making that happen. Sorry if this is annoying, but it was either that or I left the game with just one level.

Apparently a bunch of people have gotten stuck at various loading screens. You can try clicking the "Reload" button once, and then open the "Trouble Loading" window. If you see a black square, close the Trouble Loading window and wait, your game should continue loading. This may not work, so if not I'm sorry. I definitely won't ever make a multi-part game again.

Also, there's a bug in level 1 which causes the game to freeze after you accept the second or third mission. I can't fix it. However, it's really rare and highly unlikely that you will encounter it, but if you do... sorry, you will have to refresh the page and start again.

Finally, some people have reported that the game doesn't work in Google Chrome but does work in other browsers, such as FireFox. Try FF if you are having troubles in Chrome.

a good idea, to me this feels like a small part of a larger game, not just part 1, but part 2, as well, I didn't get too far in part 2, but hearing adults trying to imitate kids is weird, but i guess i guess you did what you could with the voice actors you had, the music was a lil plain, the art was good, i liked how you used different colors in the same character template to make them look less like clones, and more different, though different hair styles would have been good, for the same template, like others have said, leveling and getting/buying weapons should be added, the items are a lil simple, but useful, kinda weird that you have 2 health bars basically to watch over, , though i think that if one of your bars your character dosen't die, but switches from one bar to another, after both bars are depleted then the players character dies... Also, mouse driven battles would be nice, the game is kinda difficult, but a interesting game, thanks for the creation, and upload...

I dont like the design of the middle school or the bullys/students
AND LIKE WHATS UP WITH ALL THE SMOKING!!! You cant even smoke in middle school it is illegal and even if it was a high-school they would be much more mature and they would know better,Like the rich kid next to 103, please! why would he have 2 ciggarets!

but other then that, it has a good platform,good catchy music,a terrific! amount of plot and atmosphere. *leaves like a good reviewer* ps.take away the part of paying to save, people could lose work or money (by not doing work) or younger people could miss school. Thank you, good-bye.

Damn dude, that was pretty cool! Finished the whole way through, really want to know what happens afterwards! Finish the game! That was one of the neatest game plays I've ever come across, and I like that that different stats brought on different actions in the game, all absolutely vital! That was a sweet game dude, keep going!

would be better if the bully could get stronger through leveling up. and some weapons like a metal ruler or so would be nice too. but besides that a good game, i like black humor.
