A downloadable game for Windows

You have crash landed in a boring city and your spaceship is going to blow up in 2 minutes. What to do!? Blowing up the city seems like the only sensible option!

The boring city is a game about blowing stuff up. The more stuff you blow up the higher your score gets. Simple, right? Think of it as my love letter to the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and Battlefield Bad Company series.


If you find any bugs please let me know! Have fun blowing stuff up!

UPDATE 1.2: New desert map, new UI, new sounds. Menus!
UPDATE 1.1: Added mouse and keyboard support. A controller is still highly recommended.

If you aren't on Windows or you are just curious how this might work in a browser, take a look at the WebGL 1999 edition here: https://madmandendk.itch.io/the-boring-city-1999-web-edition
