Doubling up for the Game Jam

Posted by Kwing - 3 weeks ago


So the 2024 Flash Forward Game Jam was a pretty big crunch for me this year. I'd talked with both @ShinsukeIto and @Cyberdevil about some potential project ideas, and rather than picking one and sticking to it I decided to just do both. The result was coding my first fighting game from scratch (Kwing vs Cyberdevil) and making a sequel to Gloom (Gloom: The Pyromancer) which had more than double the content of the first game. And on top of all of that, both of these projects actually got off to a late start as a result of finishing up my two year project (and first mobile game) Slalomancers in mid February.


Suffice to say it's been a busy couple of months but I can't overstate how great it feels to get back into the creative headspace. I've got a TON of other projects in the works so hopefully more to come in the near future!

Neat. I have to make art for you sometime

let's fucking GOOOOOO

Despite the time shortage they turned out well too! Looking forward to playing the new Gloom when I've a bit more to spare as well, looks atmospheric..

They wouldn't have turned out nearly as good if I hadn't been working with supremely talented artists!

Gloom 2 is hard as balls but once you know the enemy types it's an absolute blast.

I love how Gloom The Pyromancer looks and plays.
