Rot Gut is an action packed platformer set in America's 1920's Prohibition era. You take control of an agent who, to uncover their mysteries, goes on a mission to fight the city's underground armed to the teeth organizations.


- Gameplay: Several levels with different gameplay themes.

- Art: Graphics are based on 1920's American gangster's era with Noir style mixed with retro aspects of pixel art.

- Music: Each level has it's own uniquely composed music that is an exciting mixture of chiptune and 1920's Jazz.

- Details: In order to make the game feel more fun, strong attention was paid to the details in the game; from the small sound of shotgun shells bouncing on the ground to that kick that firing a shotgun should have.

- Cutscenes: Game features 5 different cutscenes with full sound effects that played various parts during the game to tell the story and also prevent repetition.

- and MORE! ...:

About the name: "Rot Gut" basically means the stomach ache that was caused by drinking bad or home made alcoholic drinks that were popular in 1920's due to it's prohibition.


A spectacular game! All the features you mentioned were clearly noticeable but for a game with such atmosphere the music was a little too happy in my opinion. Other then that it was astounding, I liked the art style, the gameplay and even the music was great it just did´t fit right. Keep up the great work and please make more of these.

Nice atmosphere and maniability, maybe a bit easy but, really enjoyed the game. Well done !

Pretty neat little game. The music, though, is atrocious.
the gameplay was a little choppy at times and the controls seemed somewhat unresponsive, or maybe slow to react. Overall, though, I did like it and could see , with improvements, a sequel becoming a favorite.

Slow? You do realized that game runs at 60fps, right?
