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 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.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

A good amount of comments here seem extremely ignorant. "Bullying isn't a joke so I'm going to give no stars blaaah" No bullying isn't a joke but neither are a lot of crap online. This had some realistic aspects and had some witty humor. I'm very disappointed in anyone who is judging a game someone worked so hard on just because of the concept. It's as stupid as saying."Killing isn't a joke!"While playing a game where something dies. Nice job on the game sorry for all the hate your getting.

To all the butthurt politically correct gurus here whining about bullying not being a "joke": It's called dark/black humor. Please remove your heads from your uptight asses and lighten up. People are killed by guns everyday, and there are LOTS of games on Newgrounds featuring characters getting killed by guns...where's your outrage there? I got bullied quite a bit when I was a kid, but I also grew up and got the fuck over it (with the help of a few counseling sessions I might add.) Treating something with a humorous twist can actually help take away the power it has over people. Oh, and this game is pretty awesome. Nice work.

The game itself is a good idea, just a bad execution. It is much too slow and repetitive, but I can really see the effort you put into it.

Also, you can't just rate something bad because it is "dark humor". I was bullied as a kid. I got over it. Even though some people don't, as long as the joke isn't malicious, you shouldn't be offended.

Obviously Bantick and Chewietehhamster were bullied or are being bullied. That being said, I found the game to be enjoyable. The art was simple as was the gameplay, but that didn't seem to detract from game's fun. And the auto attack button helped out quite a bit when just trying to wrack up hw points. The only thing I would like to have seen is an actual level up system where you get experience from the people you bully. Other than that it was an enjoyable game.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Not sure what to rate this at first. Bullying is not something to joke around about. Kids get hurt and killed from it. But then again, this took you like, 3 years to make. And it isn't THAT bad... If it wasn't centered around bullying, I'll give you a 4. But since it is: 2.5

Snubby responds:

This is really just a soft example of 'dark humor'. If you don't like dark humor you probably shouldn't be on Newgrounds.
