Uncensored explicit language, cartoon violence and blood, cartoon depictions of suicide, bright flashing lights during one of the endings.


ULTRA ADHD (Amazing Death and Huge Destruction) is a video game taking place in a land without name. An evil God has brought forth the END TIMES - the apocalypse. The few humans who are left alive hide behind walls, ruled with an iron fist.

An ancient prophecy tells of a legendary hero, who defeated God long ago, brought peace and prosperity to the people, and then mysteriously vanished. Will you be able to defeat the evil God and save the world?

Features:

  • 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 that combines 2.5D sprites with modern 3D environments and capabilities.
  • A multitude of playstyles.
  • Multiple endings.

One playthrough takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.


"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."

- PC Gamer

"Silent protagonist goes AWOL in land of decent zombies."

- RockPaperShotgun

"It's a fabulous little adventure full of memorable characters, in jokes, stylish artwork, zombie bashing, clever writing, and great twists."

- FreeGamePlanet

"Nigh impossible to put the game down until you finish it"

- Big Boss Battle

"If you got twenty minutes and a fetish for arthouse games that really play with the medium, you cannot do much better."

very very very cool game

runs very smooth on my macbook,

it gave me goosbumbs.

(+2)

that. cut. ending. tho. Yes. Yes. Yes. Just when i thought it couldn't possibly get better. Woot mcfriggin crackle I loved this masterpiece. 

(+2)

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

(+2)

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! 

(+1)

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.

(1 edit) (+1)

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.

(+2)

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.)

(3 edits) (+1)

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

(+1)

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.

Thank you, will do! If I see any angry responses anywhere, I'll be sure to let you know. (I doubt it tho)

(+1)

Good game!

(2 edits) (+2)

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 

(+1)

I love this game so much and so I made a video on it.  

(+1)

Engie bro I just need to know how much crack you smoked before you made this

(+1)

I really like the game, but the first zombie forest part freaked me out (Mostly the sounds)

(+1)

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.

Try rebinding the Use key in the launcher.

4th wall breaks, Hilarious dialogues, and weird content is all I could ever ask for a game :D

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.

Thank you for playing, and thanks for your kind words :)

(+1)

i got very confused at this game and lol made a vid of it .

(+1)

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 !!

(1 edit) (+1)

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!

(+1)

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.

(+1)

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.


(+1)

This game is what I imagine being high is like. It did make me laugh though!


(+1)

Lovin this game so far. Very funny writing/dialogue. Looking forward to playing more!

(+1)

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

Thanks! Glad you liked it :)

I've already made a small indie horror game called "Typing", you can check it out if you like.

(+1)

I really dug this! Tbh, I'm a little old for this type of humor, but I was really into it back in the day. Invader ZIM randomness, etc. This game is just silly and fun, and I really appreciated that. Sure there isn't a super amazing plot or anything like that, but at the end of the day it did it's job--be enjoyable. Thanks for giving me something different to play, this is why I like indie games!

I made a Lumps Play, hope you like it. My commentary is Pop-up style like old school vh1 videos from the 90s. If you're looking for something different and aren't afraid of words, check me out:


(+1)

Thank you for playing! I filled this game with references and humor I personally like, without any serious plans or scripts.

Glad you enjoyed it, I like your style a lot :)

(+1)

Warning - A few spoilers.

I love this game. I actually laughed out loud for a solid 30 seconds during the lamp scene, it was amazing. I absolutely loved the art style and the music. Two suggestions:

  • Add vsync, the game runs at an uncapped FPS, so it makes any video card (I have a R9 390, for example) perform at it's full capacity for no reason.
  • Remove ~ key as exit key. I accidentally clicked it a few times forcing me to start over. Maybe change it to something we're less likely to click, or make a small in-game menu.

The Hakevesh Hashishaasar nod was nice, as well as the suicidal people's comments. Oddly enough, I found you through the credits of a Tom Scott subtitle, I've always wondered who makes these for Hebrew, since I didn't think there were that many subs from Israel, and I guess that I've found my answer.

(1 edit) (+1)

Toda Raba, glad you enjoyed it! I was waiting to see when someone will get the small Israeli references I sprinkled in. As I have said countless times, this game was almost entirely improvised, and I just put them in for fun.

Vsync and the exit key were admittingly oversights; it's the sort of things you put in for development builds and then forget to build upon. Since it's a small, freeware game, I didn't really mind these frankly, but I will improve this in future games.

Tom Scott is wonderful indeed, and I frankly don't know how many Israelis watch his stuff; I recommend his channel to pretty much everyone, though. I do know there are at least 2 other translators other than me and I have even spoken with one of them. Glad someone reads the credits :)

(+1)

Cool. Just a question, how much time did it take you to make the game?

(+1)

Start of August - Start of October, so almost 2 months, but this is mainly due to the fact I had no idea what I was doing

(+1)

Here is the second part of the playthrough and the first ending that I got. Man, this game was a trip, and I loved it!


(+1)

I was addicted to the art and storyline for this game! The art kind of reminded me of Space Funeral to be honest. There was a lot of great dialogue, and I really enjoyed the unique twist and such for the ending I received. I really hope i can figure out the other two endings and some easter eggs to do another LP, so I'll for sure check out the development video. Thank you for making such an interesting game. Worth the donation.

https://youtu.be/spUGSOm2pj4

Thank you! I'm glad someone took note of the Space Funeral influence :)

Also, the game isn't meant to simulate ADHD in any way. It's called "ULTRA ADHD" because it keeps changing ideas, locations and genres.

The developer's commentary is full of spoilers, so make sure you get all of the endings before watching it.
