Dave-Man is a game by Lou Bagel with music by Scowsh. You play as Dave who desperately needs his coffee before interacting with any co-workers. With Pac-Man inspired gameplay you must collect all the coffee beans and make it to the coffee maker without getting caught by the office “Chatty Cathy”. Your success in this mission will affect your mood and productivity during the day which will determine your paycheck. Take your money home and do some online shopping however you please...but don’t neglect the missus!
A short teaser video showing you the vicious cycle that you, ahem, I mean Dave, is caught up in.
Dave-Man is the first commercially released game by Lou Bagel! A small Kickstarter was launched to cover the Steam fee and to allow people to get involved in the game with cool rewards! Such as $20 lets you be the NPC and $75 lets you become Dave! Or simply pledge $1 for a copy of the game!
Origins: Game Jam
Dave was created for a Minimalistic Game Jam in July 2018. The game jam version is straight up Pac-Man inspired gameplay that gets harder and harder each level. While it was a success for a game jam it seemed to be lacking something and just felt repetitive and lacked a connection with the player. Therefore adding Dave’s home life for the full game hopefully increases the connection with the player and ups the stakes on succeeding at getting Dave his coffee!
