A small note for people who have played the original:

Hi! I wanted to port Drink Beer, Neglect Family to Android. I rewrote the game from scratch, and decided to draw new graphics/animations and to redesign several elements of the gameplay (some of the effects, for example, are different, and there is a boss of sorts).

It felt a bit like "Drink Beer, Neglect Family 2", so I decided to port the new DBNF to flash. I hope you enjoy it! :)



You are a depressed father who spends most of his time drinking beer and avoiding his family. How long can you avoid them, and at what cost?
Every beer you drink increases your score, and applies a different effect. Some beers make you unable to jump, some make you fall off of bridges, some make you throw up every few seconds, and so on.

On top of that, pictures of your family pop up everywhere. You need to avoid them, so they don't remind you of your duties as a father and a husband.

+ Arcade platform gameplay
+ 8 unique beer effects - ranging from mandatory puking to inability to climb ladders
+ Retro Pixel graphics
+ Dark humor
+ Interesting story and characters
+ Multiple endings



0) No ads in web version.
1) Some sounds are different.
2) Some of the pictures move faster because it's slightly harder to control the player character on mobile, and using the keyboard I felt it was too easy.
3) The game has local highscores as opposed to global highscores for the mobile version.
4) No achievements/medals for this version :( sadly I didn't have the time to integrate medals due to IRL obligations, so it was either release it without or not at all. Maybe I will add some in the future.

Original was better.

Very interested to hear in what ways (so I can improve future games).

I really do enjoy this game with it's dark ending, however I wish you could skip the tutorial after you first played

The game was dark, and got worse with every beer. This is a clever way of saying to not drink. When at the end everyone died, the repeating "you drink too much" message was the cherry on top.

My high score is 28 beers. That ending was dark, and this entire game is extremely dark, going from your family missing you to your entire family dieing. *adds to one of the many reason why I don't, will never drink or take drugs*

This is kinda of dumb question, but how do you jump? Up and space don't let you jump so what button lets you jump?

esayitch responds:

Hiya! It's in the game, in the bottom right corner under the arrows. Use X to jump :D
