I am ADHD and that ad is something I would make if I were off my meds, very accurate and funny
A downloadable absolute nonsense for Windows, macOS, and Linux
ULTRA ADHD (Amazing Death & Huge Destruction) is a game set in a land with no name. An evil God has brought forth the END TIMES - the apocalypse. The few humans who are still alive hide behind walls, ruled with an iron fist.
An ancient prophecy tells of a legendary hero, who defeated the evil God long ago, brought peace and prosperity to the people, and then mysteriously vanished. Perhaps you would be able to defeat the evil God yourself, and save the world?
- A story filled with twists and characters.
- Copious amounts of dialogue (seriously, this game is pretty text-heavy).
- Many locations to explore.
- A unique art style which combines 2.5D sprites with modern 3D capabilities.
- A multitude of playstyles.
- Multiple endings.
One playthrough takes around 20-40 minutes to complete, depending on your reading speed. Hey, I told you this game was text-heavy.
"Ultra ADHD can be pretty funny, its art is wonderfully garish, and there are multiple endings and Easter eggs to keep you playing for quite some time."
"Silent protagonist goes AWOL in land of decent zombies."
"It's a fabulous little adventure full of memorable characters, in jokes, stylish artwork, zombie bashing, clever writing, and great twists."
"Nigh impossible to put the game down until you finish it."
"If you got twenty minutes and a fetish for arthouse games that really play with the medium, you cannot do much better."

im on a mac and the attack button doesnt work
For some reason all of my Mac/Linux builds are in some way broken. It will take a while until I’ll get a chance to update them. For now the best I can recommend is to use some sort of Windows VM or back-channel to play the game.
Damn, the game is not launching with the Linux download for some reason
Hi, I’ve been made aware of Linux-related issues recently. Unfortunately the issue is more complicated than I initially thought; I don’t use Linux so I can’t really test out Unity’s Linux output. Furthermore, the project files are now about 4 years old and it would take a while to organize and recompile. I hope I can get another Linux build out soon, but due to everything I mentioned, I can’t promise it’ll actually work or bug out again.
For now the best I can recommend is to use some sort of Windows VM or back-channel to play the game.
That is totally understandable man! If you ever need to test some Linux outputs/Builds in the future (for this game or any other games) feel free to throw me a message anytime. I can download any Linux outputs you send and see if one works. I'm on the latest release of Ubuntu so it is a very popular platform to test on :)
I apologize for the wait. I just released a patch that tries to rectify those glitchy non-Windows builds. It’s important to say upfront that I don’t have a Mac or Linux machine at hand to test these builds on. I flipped some switches and optimized settings as best I could, referring to recent tutorials, FAQs, guides I found for advice. Try it out and see if there’s any difference.
This game looks like a dream and definetly has more than i expected, one of my favorite games here!!!.
sorry for my bad english.
very very very cool game
runs very smooth on my macbook,
it gave me goosbumbs.
that. cut. ending. tho. Yes. Yes. Yes. Just when i thought it couldn't possibly get better. Woot mcfriggin crackle I loved this masterpiece.
I really fucking love this game. Everything about it is just everything i want to see in little games like this. thank you for giving me something to do during this quarantine. I screen shared it with some friends and we had an amazing time having certain characters to read the lines of. i hope you are doing well. :D
Ayy, glad you had fun dubbing the game. My top priority was to make a fun experience. Quarantine’s limiting but thankfully I’m doing fine.
Ultra ADHD (which stands for Amazing Death and Huge Destruction) is much more than it looks. I played the game, thinking that it was just going to be another game about adventure and violence, but there is much more. You can't fully experience the game without completing all of the endings, especially completing the secret ending. After seeing the secret ending, I felt... inspired.
Firstly, the sarcastic remarks and witty humor make this game unique. The dialog made me believe those characters are real people. I actually burst out laughing many times when playing this game, especially when I was too lazy to give myself a name and left the box blank. The nickname they gave me made me laugh.
Secondly, I love the characters. The characters are a bit one dimensional (literally and figuratively) but I am still happy with the way they are. I can relate to all of the characters and still not feel overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the story or how the characters look.
Lastly, I love the way the true reason behind the game was introduced, not only do you "become friends" with the creator, (I wanted to literally become friends with Alon Karmi after that secret ending) but you also get a grasp of what games should really be about.
That is why I love this game.
I found this game completely by chance, and I realize that it's been a long time since the release, but having been diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, and living with it for such a long time, I was curious to see what this game had to offer, and I have to say, I wasn't disappointed. Was this game a representation of ADHD, not really. Was this game extremely entertaining and all over the place, in such a way that it keeps my ADHD brain's attention? Absolutely. I had so much fun playing this game, and I hope everyone else will too! Here's the video of me playing it if anyone is curious about it!
I loved it! I still can't tell if this game is about ADHD (the neurological disorder) or not but either way its all-over-the-place-ness really encompasses what having ADHD is like, to me anyway. I really liked the secret end, it felt like I was actually having a heart-to-heart with someone.
You should make a game about anxiety next
Edit: the "FUCK YOU YOU ARE A HORRIBLE EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING" option in court is fucking epic. I have gotten the pretentious ending, and the ADHD ending. I'm surprised that you didn't add any big easter eggs for your bossfight.
This game was wicked funny! I love the self aware shit xD The entirety of it really caught me off guard, Freaking Self righteous zombies.... anyways! Here is my play through of it! i really enjoyed this game! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39TQM1BsC3k&feature=youtu.be
amazing game and after the secret ending I feel like I made a new friend.
Incredibly charming, quirky, nonsensical and funny - I found "DancingEngie" affable and relatable in the secret ending; I love to hear from developers after thoroughly enjoying their game. You wanted to keep up with all the hip indie games? I think this is a masterpiece in itself. Beautifully executed, loved the sprites, graphics, dialogue, all of it. I don't even care, the cliches were awesome. Well done.
I wish I could be as rebellious as the 16th sheep ngl
(I've edited this comment like 10 times but the advice you gave at the end about how like, "if you make games you're a dev," really inspired me, I actually thought about it in relation to my art and music etc. I actually physically smiled throughout most of this game. Thank you for this experience dude.)
Thank you very much :) Really, I love hearing from players that my games had an impact on them, despite the fact I never intended that (nor want UADHD to be known only by that segment) and just treated UADHD as a hojpog of random ideas, interested to know how people would react to it. Some love it, some hate it, I’m just happy people got to experience it.
I’m not going to claim full credit over that ending or claim it was a stroke of brilliance because that would be disingenuous. What got me to do that was Make Happy by Bo Burnham, a show that starts very nonsensical and funny with some sarcastic jabs, but ends in a surprisingly real and genuine way. Really, the advice “if you do X then you ARE X” comes from him, and he’s not the first to say it.
Just a quick question: how did you find this game? I’m always curious to know how random strangers get to and comment on this game.
also the 16th sheep is a parody/ripoff of an israeli hebrew children’s poem of the same name shhhhhhhh don’t tell anyone
Haha, your secret is safe with me.
Not gonna lie, I stumbled upon UADHD when I was browsing for "experimental" games on itch.io, I read the description and thought it would be fun to check out. The whole idea of it caught my eye and, deducing that the game would be ABSOLUTELY MAD considering it had ADHD in the title, I downloaded it. Not regrettable in the slightest. I only discovered itch.io like 2 days ago? This was one of the first games I played from the site.
Btw, Bo Burnham is a legend, I need to check out more of his stuff on youtube. The amount of spinoffs in the game is what gives UADHD its charm, I reckon. Amongst other things of course.
Heh, that’s actually the least likely tag you’d find the game in. Ironically, that metadata was set up intentionally because I was interested to see how the ‘artsy games’ crowd would react to a game very conspicuously making light of the genre. From what I can tell it was taken in kind. Or they’re waiting for the perfect time for revenge. I dunno.
Welcome to itch, though! ‘tis a strange place. I’d suggest scouting the catalogue with specific tags, that system is pretty legit. Also if you haven’t watched Bo’s what. yet, I believe the full show’s still up on his YT channel.
As soon as I saw this i immediately thought "Hey, I have ADHD, why not play a game about... ADHD?"
I watched the trailer but I haven't played it yet. It looks cool.
i'd mention other "disorders" that I have but here's 1 instead of all of 'em: Anxiety
I love this game so much and so I made a video on it.
Engie bro I just need to know how much crack you smoked before you made this
I really like the game, but the first zombie forest part freaked me out (Mostly the sounds)
One of the best indie games I have ever played, absolutely hysterical
Unfortunately, there seems to be something going wrong with my system (Windows 10), as I can't interact with the phone. Pressing E doesn't yield any action. I can move around fine though.
4th wall breaks, Hilarious dialogues, and weird content is all I could ever ask for a game :D
me:*loads up game*
me:*goes to phone*
me:*turns on game again*
me:*goes into church*
me:*gets stuck on candle*
Yeaaaaaah, sorry about that, old engine bug. I'm going to upload a 2nd anniversary update next week that fixes that (and other bugs) as well as new content.
This Game Gave me the Giggles 11/10
im curious aside from people having adhd is that how they feel in a way that turns you in to there perspective
Amazing game, was really funny!
This game is so good.
We enjoyed it very much.
Great work.Keep it up and we want more games !!!
The game is really cool. I loved it! Thank you!
Hola amigos, Lots of LOLZ and wasnt what I was expecting. GUILTY OF ADHD | Ultra ADHD
Hey, I just want to tell you that I really liked this game. The overall look and aesthetic was really amazing. :> The whole game was really relatable especially in the ADHD way.
i got very confused at this game and lol made a vid of it .
IDK WTF is wrong with my mental state... but this game might have made it worse LOL That art style is SEXY AF... AGAIN: Shot Dog is a bitch. Can't wait to "kill" the developer !!
This game was so surprisingly good! very funny little anti game, had some serious fun and laughs doing all the voicing over the hilarious dialogue. 11/10ign would play again!
This game is amazing. The comedy, the story, the twists and turns, everything. I can't wait to find the other endings. Also you're my dad now, just letting you know.
We played this game about things and it was pretty amazing! You can watch the playthrough here complete with voice acting. Give it a watch and can't wait to try out the other endings.
This game is what I imagine being high is like. It did make me laugh though!
Lovin this game so far. Very funny writing/dialogue. Looking forward to playing more!
This game is flipping awsome. It is so funny and grand. I love the style and the dialouge. I played all the way through until I got evrey ending and I did. I would love to see more games like this. I would love to see you make a indie horror game. Keep up the good work Dancingengie
