A fast 1-4 player action roguelike.

A shipwrecked crew of cursed pirates are condemned to an animal form... Armed with nothing but their desire to be human again, they decide to enter... the TEMPLE of RUBBO.

Delve deep into the dungeon below and fight rats,  slimes, goblins, knights and demons. Use swords, spears, bows and magic through 16 floors of dungeons to rescue the ancient wizard!

Can you lift the curse from your crew?

Pick-up and play ๐ŸŽฎ
The game is very easy to get in to: with only three buttons and a clear objective, you can get all your friends playing in just a couple of minutes. No tedious tutorial to get through!

New run, new build! ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ
Each run, you'll come across shops, witches and a blacksmith which you can use to buy gear and level up your character. Will you become a powerful knight, a swift archer or an intelligent battle mage?  It's all up to you!

Fast-paced Fun โณ
The game is very fast paced: you only have three minutes before each floor begins to disintegrate. It's stressful, but it also means that a full run will not take you longer than about 45 minutes! 

Co-op ๐Ÿ™Žโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™Ž
You can play TEMPLE of RUBBO with up to 4 players! If you have no controllers, it's 1-2 players. If you do, you can either use 4 controllers, or mix-and-match with keyboard players if you don't have enough.

No-one around? The game is balanced in such a way that it is also a lot of fun to play on your own!

Anybody else having an issue where the game crashes in later levels? Me and my friend haven't been able to beat it yet because it crashes every time we get to stages 4-1 and later. Its hard for us to 100% this game if we cant beat it :(

(PS its a really awesome game)

How did you achieve this art style?

I belive it is the xBRZ filter.

Thanks for the reply! I have figured this out, I even made a template project for Godot https://github.com/eboatwright/xBRZ-Godot

P.S. Just checking out your profile, 12 years old?! These games are better than mine lol Keep up the great work!


The Game looks very nice. Is a Linux version planned?

This game looks quite amazing :) props for your team's work! It would mean a lot if you could consider adding ARM64 support for the Windows Version too  :)

It feels like a combination of Chatventures and Pocket Watch. I bought on Steam and played with my friend via Remote Play.

Great work!



May I ask what game engine you used to create the game?


SOKPOP usually uses Unity as far as I've seen so I would suspect that this is also in Unity


it's gamemaker


okay nice.

Thank you Zariel and Sokpop.

Cool game! It was a lot of fun playing it with my friends, is there anywhere I can listen to the games music?


The music was done by @bbtombo and will be available soon on his Bandcamp, as well as on the Sokpop Spotify account!

Android soon?

(1 edit)

will this game be on ps4?

or is it already on ps4?


Putting games on the ps4 if expensive and hard, there probably won't be a ps4 version

Can I play co-op with friends online?

(1 edit)

Not online, but this will be possible in the Steam version (via Remote Play Together)! Your itch.io purchase will include a Steam key once the game releases on Steam.

Is the steam release planned to be somewhat soon or will it be far in the future ?

soon! somewhere coming weeks

totally going to wishlist it as soon as it pops up

edit: it's on steam already ! nice

What game engine did you go with?


gamemaker i guess

I've been playing for hours and I'm still enjoying it. I usually get frustrated with rougelikes, but I really like this one. Plus the graphics are beautiful, especially how each world tile pops in individually when you get close enough. I'm super impressed with what you guys have made this month. Definitely recommend.

Love the look of the graphics! Is that a median blur shader over-top to make it look like that?
