A downloadable Holey Suit

Holey Suit! is a physics based space survival game with quirky controls.  

You are the only survivor after your ship was blown apart by a vicious alien attack. Your only hope: reach the escape pod before your oxygen runs out.  Follow the pointer on your HUD to the pod and avoid the aliens patrolling the wreckage!

In space you have only one way to move: click to shoot & propel yourself backwards.  Avoid hitting debris as this makes you bounce and lose momentum; every second counts!

You HUD indicates your oxygen and energy levels.  Energy slowly regenerates; Oxygen constantly depletes.  Pointers indicate the nearest equipment crates & O2 bottles.  The largest pointer is directed towards the escape pod, as well as indicates the distance in meters to reach it.  Note there is an in-game tutorial to get familiar with the mechanics.

There are several difficulty modes.  Classic Survivor is the casual mode, Hardcore Henry and Oxygen Not Included are aimed at hardcore players.

This game is still under active development.  This is a free game built as a hobby project and it will remain free after full release.  How to support the game if you like it?  Leave comments or follow @HotchPotchGames on Twitter!

To do list:  

- Balancing & adding unlockable characters

- Implementing new enemies

- Music & Sound

I will be posting regular dev blogs, stay tuned + check hotchpotch.games for full updates.

Install instructions


Windows 10 users: I've had reports of black screens.  The latest build should fix this problem.  But if somehow the issue persists, please make sure to enable backwards compatibility with windows 8 (in file properties>compatibility on the executable).

To be on the safe side, I am leaving the game to start in window mode for now.  To switch to full screen, usual alt + enter.

This was pretty fun! I was pretty bad at it but not as bad as I was at Cowmets.

I like the whole idea and gameplay and I think it will be even better when you finish out the already planned additions. Little details like sound effects etc will make a huge impact on the game.

I wouldn't mind seeing a game mode with more of a progression of levels, almost like a campaign mode where levels start out easy (less debris, aliens, etc) and get progressively more difficult. But I wouldn't say it's something it needs, just an idea.

my playthrough:

This was a fun watch, thanks a lot for the insightful feedback, much appreciated!  There's definitely some balancing to do.  The level idea is interesting, my intention was to re-shape the tutorial in the final version so it explains the mechanics as well as why the ship exploded, but I could push this further and have some sort of a story mode with several levels!  TBC ;)

Glad you liked the video!

Hope my feedback helps and good luck!

This is a cool  little game with a great set of mechanics. Had a "blast" with some of the weapons. Played some more after recording and got to try out some of the other characters. The Botanist was particularly fun as it emphasized not crashing into everything.

I'd like to see more depth in the game as time goes on as just making it to the escape pod is fairly easy, but that doesn't take anything away from my enjoyment of the current build. Although the music wasn't in this build, I did add it into the video and really enjoyed it. Aside from that, it was a really fun and bug-free game.

Haha thanks, glad you enjoyed it!  Still working on the balance but I take your point on board, need to add some more juice to the game.  Leave that with me, I'll ping you when things are more fleshed out ;). And thanks for editing in the audio!

I really enjoyed the game. I can imagine this would be very fun to do speedruns of. I didn't find any bugs do I don't have any complaints. 

Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for the video this was fun to watch!  The "Oxygen Not Included" mode should be a good one for speed runs - in that mode you only have the O2 you start with and no chance to refill, so you're against the clock ;)

Will keep you posted as I had new stuff in!

This is a fantastic little physics based adventure! I love the momentum, the character
sprites and all the different challenges the characters have. Also Thumper for life!!

Holey Suity lets play showcase! Loving the game thank you for much for the opportunity.

Love it!  Thanks a bunch for trying the game out.  And yes I haven't implemented the music & sound FX yet.  Soundtrack is available for download, I just need to code it in!

Hello Mitron, 

Thank you again for the opportunity. Glad you enjoyed the showcase I really love the game you have a lot of potential with it. Keep me posted please with any updates I would love to do like a trail showcase of every single little thing you add to the game and do more videos than. If you are interested in that let me know you.

I look forward to future updates and cant wait to see the game out of pre -alpha its great.

Many thanks again,
