About To Hell With The Ugly

About this game

You’re Rocky, a 20-year-old young man with a certain charm that doesn’t go unnoticed. After a night out at the Zooty Slammer, you wake up in a strange hospital, kidnapped and drugged.

Whatever they did to you last night, they did it. And now it’s too late for apologies, you need to get to the bottom of this…

Rocky style.

Finalist in the 2023 IGF awards in “Excellence in Visual Arts” and showcased in the 10th anniversary day of the devs, To Hell With the Ugly is an adventure game set in a 1950s LA film noir setting.

Play as Rock Bailey, a blond and handsome young man who systematically refuses all advances made to him. To the dismay of everybody around him, he stubbornly saves himself until the day he turns 20.

Everything changes when he is drugged and kidnapped outside the Zooty Slammer jazz club and wakes up in a strange hospital. They stole something from him, something very personal, and he wants revenge. Help Rocky get to the bottom of this mystery and find out the truth behind it.

To Hell with the Ugly is an adventure game with a focus on narration. Rocky has already lost part of his pride, he won’t shy away from combat if it takes him closer to the revenge he seeks. With his journalist partner Gary, they will have to gather clues from crime scenes and use them to make assumptions and solve puzzles, explore all the nooks and crannies of 1950s LA and let their fists do the talking in turn-based combat.

To unravel this mystery, you must:

  • Investigate Los Angeles in the 50s, explore its darkest corners, meet the locals and immerse yourself in this film-noir atmosphere
  • Fight for your freedom, let the fists talk in turn-based combats based on timing, precision and amazingly beautiful hair
  • Gather clues and information, investigate crime scenes, and make the right choices to solve mysteries.
