Billie grows wings formed from magic! Using a strong telekinesis spell she can lift herself into the air with short bursts of magic. She can flap 3 times for extra height and glide in between.

Magic Decoy

Billie will summon a personalized item that will distract its target, however, the item will be only effective for a limited time period.

Oscar’s dig move will leave a pair of holes at the entry and exit points that serve as a teleport. There can be 3 sets of holes at a time, both Billie and Oscar can use them.

Billie is temporarily invisible and can only be seen by enemies with heat vision goggles. Her invisibility will be removed if damaged or if the endurance meter runs out. The meter refills when the skill is not in use.

And many more!...

Current community members of Billie Bust Up know that the characters are the bread and butter of this game, boasting tons of personality, each one is dear to us. Their backstories have been fully fleshed out, and each villain gets a song by Daniel Ingram to compliment their aesthetic and to their motive and personality. The heroes will also get their own songs to truly make this a musical adventure.

 Billie sets out on her very first mission, is immediately captured by cat pirates, and taken prisoner by the terrifying Captain Elaine. Now, she must escape, and steal the gem back from the pirates! This level contains stealth segments and a giant cat pirate city to explore.   


Billie has managed to convince Dutch, owner of a renowned hotel, to give her a jobJuggle working under the direction of Hayes in this lavish establishment and finding the powerful gem Dutch is hiding! 


Barnaby, the ghost owl, is hosting a forever party, and you're the newest guest! Trouble is, there's a token fee for mortals to join. Beat Barnaby at his own games and escape his party castle with his gem... and your life! 

musical boss fight and finale, the players' choices will impact the last Act as they direct their own play by picking prop sets, outfits, and scripts.

Fantoccio, the theatre-loving puppet, has spent 15 years locked away in this enchanted theatre, waiting for the perfect play-thing to come along. Can Billie put up with his theatrical antics, find the gem, and annoy him into letting her go? 



Follow us on social media, share with us your fanart, gameplay, and covers of Fantoccio's song! Tag us for a retweet! Or join our very friendly and active Discord community, chat with the developers, and discuss theories.

I'm so excited for this game! I made a video playing the demo and singing along with Fantoccio!

I was trying this, but it was laggy for me.

I fell in love with the fight against Fantoccio. I can't wait to be able to discover this game in its entirety when it comes out and fall under the spell of other music !

adorable

A friend told me about this game and I am very grateful they did. I am hooked just off of that boss fight. I'm excited for the future when I can play it in full !!!!

Hey Devs,

I gave it a shot! Wow that was incredible, it was frustratingly difficult in all the right ways and the music was fantastic! I cannot wait to play more. +1 Backer on Kickstarter.

Wonderful demo, Billie and his 2D eyes, animations looks amazing! It was really fun to play in pre-alpha builds!

Got a, i7 8750, 2060 RTX, 32 GB RAM game runs poorly. Probably wanna check that out. I play most games in Ultra, even newer ones.

are you able to run other unreal engine 4 games smoothly? so far people report a stable build except on lower specs pcs and laptops

Yes, I play Rocket League (first example that came to mind) in all max settings. No issues with any game in general but yours with my setup. 

then its you.

Well, I'm sold. Just from the one fight in this demo, Billie Bust Up looks like it'll be a fun time once complete, with many songs stuck in people's heads. An adorable cast with decent voice acting/singing, plus a petable fox? It's going to feel like an interactive cartoon. In a good way.

Good job, devs.

nice! I reccomend turning graphics to minimum after you understand the game, it makes it wayyyyyy smoother. especcially since the default is the highest graphics
