A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

What is NotDOBA?

NotDOBA is a fast-paced turn-based 2 player duelling game where players second-guess their opponents in a bout of wits to control the game.

Set in the minimalist art style of today, players take control of the Bass-ians of graphic design past to once again conquer the forefront of modern day design.

Simple to play, hard to master!

Games are played across 7 maps with more to come in future updates! Speaking of...


Over the course of NotDOBA's lifespan I'll be updating it with free content, including new key configurations, maps, and stable code!

Install instructions

Thanks for purchasing NotDOBA!

There are 2 downloads; one's specified as both Windows and Mac while the other is exclusively for Mac. While Windows users only need to select their respective download option, Mac users need to download both, and I'll explain why below.

For Mac users, the .app file had to be separated due to crashing issues after being compressed. Simply drag the .app file into the same folder as the .exe, and everything should work as intended.

Mac Fix UPDATE (25/09):

Hello! A couple people have alerted me to a potential problem with the Mac launcher, and it's all to do with how websites (Itch.Io, Dropbox etc.) compress folders across Windows and Mac. On Mac, .app files appear like any ordinary application, but on Windows they appear as vulnerable folders, and these sites treat them as they would for any collective mass of data. In other words, they compress them.

Fix time! Open the link below and download the launcher in its original .app form:



...follow the same steps as before, placing the swf folder and .app in the same location and everything should work fine (fingers crossed)!

Bugs? Feedback? Abuse?

Email me directly at notdoba@gmail.com, and I'll try to respond as promptly as I can! If there's a graphical or sound issue, restarting the game is an easy fix.

this game is really fun and easy to learn but there is one bug where if both player slide at the same time while they are right next to each other then they slide past and the game gets soft locked
