Title: Bulb Boy

Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux and eventually iOS and Android.

Genre: Point ’n’ click, Adventure, Horror

Description: In the Electric Forest, lived a boy with a glowing head whose name was Bulb Boy. He grew up in a big old house with his GRANDPAraffin and Mothdog. It was a time of fun, friendship and love. One gloomy night, Bulb wakes suddenly from a frightening nightmare to discover that darkness has overshadowed the old family house. GRANDPAraffin and Mothdog have disappeared… Are they ok?

Bulb Boy is a 2D point'n'click adventure where you solve puzzles and defeat monsters to reveal a twisted tale. The idea behind Bulb Boy is to create a heart gripping horror story with a creepy feel. Our aim is to produce fluid gameplay based on puzzle-solving mechanics without the addition of senseless riddles.

The game is scheduled for release in 2015 on Mac, PC, Linux and eventually iOS and Android.
