Solar Panic: Utter Distress is a first-person comedy adventure game. Wake up as Durwood Champney, a sarcastic douche with a vendetta for early morning traffic and follow a true story that we made up. Explore through three different planets filled with funny and/or stupid side encounters or experience the story of a hungover secret agent. A bit like James Bond without all the coolness and classiness. Wield powerful top of the line second-hand gadgets from the innovative Tomato Gun to the more sophisticated Fart Grenade™. With inspiration drawn from real life, fake life and Teen Mom we bring to life the weirdest, wackiest and socially awkward characters. Get in trouble with the pantless ice cream man, make friends with a beggar who wants nothing from you or ignore everybody, we don’t really care.


Solar Panic: Utter Distress, or SPUD, was born when the team was planning their next game, and everyone came up with crazy ideas and jokes, small and big. That’s the moment it was clear that the game would be a comedy adventure game set in multiple locations with a big emphasis on the story.


  • Several jokes that make you blow snot out of your nose.
  • Handcrafted world made from first-class pixels.
  • Real human sounds and voices recorded in their natural habitat.
  • Interactive sound environment and music design.
  • Recommended by 4 out 5 dentists.
