Solar Panic 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 exotic places filled with funny and/or stupid encounters and experience the story of a hungover ex-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 Sniffer. With inspiration drawn from real life, fake life and artificial life 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, the choice is yours.
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.
