A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The sky over Rollland has turned dark and creeps started to appear everywhere!

You are Roru, you will save Rollland.

Rotate the world to move, solve puzzles and ban the creeps from Rollland!


Left/Right: Rotate the World

Up: Jump

Space: Select Menu Item

Esc: Open Menu

There are two palettes in the game. You can switch between them from either the pause or the main menu.

The game saves automatically, when quit through the main menu, which is available from the map only. Do not close the window using the [x] button if you do not want to lose your game progress.

WIP: I started Roru for GBJAM, but will keep working on it after the jam ends. Later, there will be Mac and Linux versions, aswell.

Install instructions

macOS: Roru comes as a compressed .dmg-file, which can be mounted by double-clicking. You can then run Roru either directly from the DMG, or put it somewhere, you like. To completely remove it from your Mac, it is best to use a utility like AppCleaner. (Roru saves its settings in ~/Library/Application Support/io.gero.Roru, but there are more files to be removed, like saved application states and logs, which AppCleaner will detect.)

Linux: Roru comes as a .zip-file which needs to be extracted, for example from the terminal using the unzip command, before running. Afterwards you can put the extracted directory anywhere you want and run Roru from there.

Windows: Roru comes to you as a single .exe-file, which can be run from any place. It will store a savegame file in %localappdata%\Roru, which you can delete if you wish to start anew or remove the game from your computer.
