Rock 'n' Roll Diogenes Title Screen

A game based on Diogenes und die bösen Buben von Korinth (paraphrased english translation, rhymes and all), an early work by German cartoon pioneer Wilhelm Busch. Most of his comic strips were incredibly violent, cruel and downright sadistic by today's standards, and what better way to celebrate violence than through the magic of video games?

Old Wilhelm would've been proud. Just look at him.

Rock 'n' Roll Diogenes was developed in 3 Days in collaboration with Nina Kiel for the Public Domain Jam.
