HOT MESS is the story of a firefighting robot and its adventures helping everybody out.

Harkening back to classic 8-bit hose games like COOL-AID MAN, OH NO MY NEIGHBORS and COMPU SLED, players delicately maneuver a two-ton spray tank while minimizing property damage and respecting basic social values like privacy and the pursuit of happiness.

Take your time through a few different hotels, extinguishing fires with the utmost caution and care.

* Scrolling digital color -- the screen moves as you do!
* Auto-movmement lets you concentrate on other things, like what's going on tonight
* Synaesthesic computer audio by legendary shredder Eric Guenther
* Global Leaderboards use the familiar "base-10" number system
* Experience is segmented into discrete stages, in a way real life can never be

HOT MESS!
Putting out fires!
HOT MESS!
Let's move in together!
HOT MESS!
What is the void, really?
HOT MESS!
HOT MESS!

Was it because of the people fooling around in their underwear?

Just wondering; have you actually played this game, or are you just trashing it based on the retro graphics and the title? It looks like it might just be fun to me, and I love that graphic style a lot, as do many people here. Care to share, poster?

I like the art style. It reminds me of something CACTUS (of Hotline Miami) would make. He might not be as versed in smilies as you, but I don't think we should judge this developer just because it was reject by Apple for "nudity".

Go on, admit it. You're the developer posting under a fake name, aren't you?

If you haven't played the game, keep your invalid opinion to yourself. You could be influencing people who would appreciate the game with your baseless opinion.
