GAME SHOWCASES






Animal Ninja Masters

4 player cooperative sidescroller 2d with animal ninja characters. Join the fox, the cat, the monkey and the squirrel to save the world from the evil god of the moon who wants to transform everybody into stone!





KNOSSOS

2D multiplayer brawler for 8 players in a ancient greek setting (top down), crossed with modern weapons and four very different gamemodes (minotaur/flood/rabbit/ballgame) - it supports multiple gamepad brands plugged in at once.





One Game Per Month

I am trying to learn how to make good games by making a lot of small games, while simultaneously working on some bigger projects I may also be able to present.





Seeds of Sol

Seeds of Sol is an isometric action adventure about a stranded crew being guided by an AI with multiple-personality disorder in a search for their vanished ship. While visiting many different planets in a procedurally generated galaxy, players experience a non-linear story.





BattlePIN

Boost your battle ship into space, collect points, and challenge your friends in BattlePIN. Use a dance mat for boosting, and a steering wheel for controlling ship and firing your weapon!





Project L.L.A.M.A.

This game (formerly known as AiRena) is a fast paced local multiplayer party game. 2-4 players can battle each other. The ultimate goal of this instant kill game is to be the first to reach 10 kills through head jumps or items. Gather your friends in front of a screen just like in the good old console times.





Night Watch

Night Watch is a game about using your light and repairing lanterns to destroy ghosts which come to haunt your house. You are a night watcher who has to guard his town from ghosts. Only the light of the lanterns can scare them, but the truth is the lanterns run out of power easily so you must repair them. Oh, and you can upgrade them!





Simple Public Leaderboards

Enrich your games' experience by adding a global highscore for your games. We offer an independent, platform agnostic infrastructure for your games statistics. globalstats.io was created by two developers as a private project for fun. It aims to save you game developers time and costs when you want to add online highscores to your game. It is platform agnostic and there will be various language bindings and libraries to utilize full power of the platform.





HYPERNOVA: Escape from Hadea

A charming open world single player RTS with quirky characters, beautiful planetary design and a healthy dollop of humor. It combines classic resource management, technology research and civilization building with intuitive tower defense gameplay.





Smurfs' Village

The evil wizard Gargamel and his ever present cat companion, Azrael, have finally found the Smurfs’ village and scattered our lovable blue friends far and wide throughout the enchanted forest. Come along with familiar friends, like Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy, Jokey, Greedy and the rest of the smurf family, as they guide you on a family fun adventure to build a new forest village for the Smurfs to call home. Based on the beloved classic cartoon, your adventure begins with a single mushroom home and a smurflightful plot of land. Harvest your smurfberries. Build charming huts, special mushroom houses, and bridges. And decorate your village with colorful gardens, lights, flower chairs, hammocks and more!





World of Tanks

Bongfish teamed up with Wargaming to work on an epic new game mode for World of Tanks dubbed Grand Battles: Frontline – featuring epic 60 player battles while fighting for strategic objectives.





Pixel Soldier

Pixel Soldier is a fast-paced game about fighting frantic bosses, while quickly dodging their attacks. Disregard gravity while walking on walls and jumping from one side of the room to another. With a minimalist yet dynamic 4-color aesthetic that doesn’t distract from the pure arcade action gameplay.
