Maniac Inc.

by Brackeys - Compo Entry

Classic defend the castle game with lots of fun store items and weapons!


-- Hi, I'm Bob.
People call me a maniac.
I've gotten used to it. In fact I've even named my company after it.
Oh, what do I do?
I wipe out the human race for a living. It's actually really rewarding work.
I guess mass destruction always came naturally for me. I'm kind of an introvert and I just don't like people, you see.
In fact I haven't been outside... Like ever.
I like my room though. It's so nice and comfortable.
If only people would leave me alone... They always have to come BUGGING ME while I'm working!


Check out the Behind The Scenes video:


- Unity 5.5 (C#)
- Visual Studio
- Photoshop CC
- Adobe Audition

- Roboto

What a fun Ludum Dare! :D

Wave 7. :D
Definitely one of the better games from this LD.
I found it very satisfying.

Wave 6
(BrackeysVoice)"Game Over" :)

I found that the turrets and missile launcher appeared to be rather ineffective.

It took me SO long to figure out how to change weapons...

Turns out you have to buy another one first :P

Nice game, a shame the graphics were rather simplistic and bad.

Nice game! The only flaw I noticed is with the missile launcher & turret. Other than that, solid work :)

Great and simple game, got to wave 8 on my first go. It's fun, i reckon that it just needs a little but of balancing between how much insanity you get to the difficulty of the waves

Hi Brackys,

Maniac Inc is definitely better than a lot of the other compo games. I love the sound effects!!!

I do feel like the reloading mechanic is kind of annoying. I don't really know why but I just want to spam bullets.

The waves maybe get to hard to fast but its hard to judge!!

Overall great game. I love your youtube tutorials so keep that up as well.

Thanks, xzippyzachx.

Big fan of the art style and overall simplicity as well as the attention to detail and polish!

It was very funny and addictive with all the shoppings you can do. Deffinetly is a great gameplay and a cool polished game to be made in the compo version. Great work!

level 7, it was fun but kind of a bit too hard.

The aim was funky and the turret was not worth getting. The rifle is much better but takes a while to get.

Reload times could be faster.

The text at the start should have a next button or should just transition once done if you don't skip.

But still it is fun.
