A downloadable GAME + ALBUM for Windows and macOS

A world of Police that have forgotten what, and why, they are policing.


Rooftop Cop is a collection of five endless vignette games and a 7-track album. The games are set on a loose metaphysical timeline in which the Cops slowly lose their way.

Each of the five parts is quite different, and varies in theme from environmental terror, to manic industry, to a sort of darkly aloof joy.

Initially an MFA Thesis, you can read more about my process, thoughts, and feelings on the project over at rooftopcop.com !

Sorry about this!  Mac builds were always a little volatile with the original GameMaker (a little less so now in GMS2), and unfortunately I kinda expected this would happen at some point. Apple has a habit of constantly breaking software with updates! If I can dig up the source files and make time to re-compile it with GMS2 then that might solve these issues for a time, but that isn't something I was planning on doing anytime soon.  :<

IT'S A COPERA

"God Bles Everyone" stuck with me longer than I expected

I have no clue as to what is going on or what I am supposed to do at all lol

(1 edit)

Favorite was vignette IV.  Really enjoyed the audio throughout.  Took a long time to figure out that I could use [space] on people in 1 but the rest were pretty natural.
