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

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

Fun game, solid graphics, awesome style

Hilarious concept! The controls are simple and straightforward. Additionally, the graphics are beautiful.

Restarting the level immediately on death with no penalty is brilliant, really forward thinking. I think many games will go this way in the future.

The one complaint I have is the levels are super difficult. I've only ever gotten two stars on one level, the rest have all been one star. I'd love to know the criteria for more stars. Is it points? Time? Water used? Longest chain?

Really fun, put customizable in underwear!

I think it would be pretty cool if you could customize the underwear or have holiday themed skins for underwear (imagine turkeys in front of the people instead of underwear for Thanksgiving). Keep up the good work guys! Also… hats


Tried this game because of the hype and wish I hadn't. It's boring, the controls are horrible and backwards? And the same song for every level gets old quick. They could of actually TRIED on this game but they didn't. It was probably made in less then a day with 0 thought put into it. Wish I could get a refund
