A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux


It's an up to 4 player party game with destroyable terrain!

You NEED at least one more person and a controller, since only one person can play on keyboard and its a multiplayer game!

This is meant to be a couch-play party game so the single player will have to come a bit later in development, once the multiplayer is polished and at its fullest. After all, having fun with your friends is the core of party games, right? <3

Beat your friends!! Dong them to oblivion.

Supports one keyboard and up to four controllers 🎮

All you need to play is:

  • A friend: this is multiplayer-only for now!
  • A controller: only one person can play on keyboard... for now ;)

Hello, there's a readme file with instructions on how to run the game. If it doesn't work, join our discord and send me a direct message, I'd be glad to help!

There's a link in the description of the game, but I will post it here as well: https://discord.gg/Nx4ApVv

it would be amazing if you could make the multiplayer online as well as local

Oh man, it would be a dream! We decided to go local-only as this is our first project and wanted to keep the scope of the project possible. It is still a possibility as people continue to suggest it! 

Sometimes we host online matches through parsecgaming (think of steam remote) in our discord server, feel free to join the community to suggest new ideas/feedback or to look for people to play with online :D

I wonder if Steam Remote Play Together would work for non-steam games.

I would turn the pink character more purple or maybe even orange because pink is too close to red it gets confusing.

We've got several people mentioning this issue. So this is definitely going to happen now! Thanks for reinforcing that this is an issue! 

By the way, we recently opened up a discord where we engage with people and even send builds of the game to people as we work on the it. Feel free to  join and reach out. We also host online lobbies  through https://parsecgaming.com in our discord.

This game is absolutely beautiful. Please, further develop this and make a paid version.

Hey, thanks for reaching out!  That is definitely the plan! We're focusing on adding more content to the game and continue to polish it. Thanks for letting us know we're going in the right direction :D

This is one of the best local multiplayer games I have ever had the joy of playing and is definitely the best that I have found on Itch.io thus far!! Eagerly looking forward to future updates!

You can see me and my brother's play-through on YouTube:

I am allowed to post this link here right? If not, someone please inform me, I don't want to violate Itch.io's terms of service...

Thanks man! Are you kidding? It would actually be awesome to see everyone's play session here :D It REALLY helps us get feedback and improve the game, plus it encourages more people to try it!

(+1)

Thanks! More than glad to post the play-through!

I there, I watched your playthrough. I would be very excited if you would try out my local multiplayer game as well and give us your thoughts. Please message me. Thanks. 

Hey guys, your game looks really good!

Hi, We looked at your game page and we believe the game is called "Ruin of the Reckless?" If that is the game you were referring to, it looks interesting! If you would tell us where to download it, we would be more than happy to try it out!

Would it be possible for this game to support Hori gamepads?

These are the only full gamepad that I own and I would love to play this game with some of my mates

Hello! I did a bit of research on the Hori Gamepads and I noticed they provide a driver for pc on their website which basically exposes the gamepad as an XInput Device (Xbox controller). You might have already tried this, but can you let me know if this works?

MAC Catalina 10.15.3 (19D76): "The application “Hammer Dongers.app” can’t be opened."

now i'm sad

Oh no! :(  Is there a way I can reach out to you and send you a personal build?

You can also write to us directly through our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HammerDongers

dont have facebook, can you contact me on;

All you need to do is go into the package contents of the app.

Go into contents, then into MacOS and you'll find a file called "Hammer Dongers", this will be a text file, but it's supposed to be an executable file.

Now open up terminal and type: chmod +x 

Then drag the hammer dongers file that you found into the terminal window, to the right of the text chmod +x

It should look like this 


press enter and enjoy :)

I remember playing this (kind of) game in StarCraft and Warcraft 3 and loving them. Were there any specific inspirations that you drew from?

Our main inspiration for the idea was bomberman! The idea came out during a Themed Game Jam (Ludum Dare 42: Running out of space). As for the aesthetics, we draw inspiration from A link to the past and Towerfall.

Btw, I loved StarCraft and Warcraft 3, huge fan as well <3

Oooh, this looks like something my Bro might enjoy! I'll send him the link, to see if he wants to try this out.

Please get back to us and let us know how that went :D

Man, me and my friends play couch games every Friday. I found about your game on ask game dev and it was love at first sight. we had a blast playing the game.

Amazing concept, full of funny moments and high competitive. A mix of bomberman, zelda and maybe goof troop. Really impressed! Seriously, you got a really good product in your hands. 

The game night anxious to see that will come next in the game. 

Keep up with the good work 

Straight to the feelings :) Thanks man, we really appreciate the kind words <3

Looks really cool! Nice art too!
I wonder if it would work with Steam Remote Play over the network...

(+1)

That is on our top priority once we release on steam! We do playsting over the internet with parsecs: https://parsecgaming.com/ 

Parsecs is basically the same concept as Steam Remote Play

looks cool. The name needs some work, IMO. Dong is slang for penis, which is pretty close to dongers.

Dong is also a sound, but not typically what would be associated with that word.

(+1)

Dong is, without a doubt, slang for penis :D

It is a god game, but, i think is a god idea made it compatible with PS3, PS4 controllers

We rely on a third party software to provide controller support, this is the list of supported devices:

Definitely will test again with PS3 and PS4 devices, thanks for the feedback!
