Friendship Club

Pre-order now for Early Beta Access!

Monsters! Mayhem! Imaginary friends do nightly battle for the favour of their creator! Who will endure? What will be left of them? Come with us as we venture into the mind of young Timmy Bibble in...

TIMMY BIBBLE'S FRIENDSHIP CLUB!

Friendship Club is a local-multiplayer bullet-hell arena-shooter for PC and Mac.

Play as one of Timmy's four best (and imaginary) friends. Chud - a beast from the mountains. Old Man Ricketts - a prospector driven mad by his lust for gold. Shakey Jake - a ninja, bandit, skeleton... thing. The Canardinal - a duck from the Vatican!

Fire bullets that bounce forever. Catch bullets with supreme agility. Headbutt your opponents into oblivion. Be the best friend ever for little Timmy.

A long-term collaboration project with Clockwork Cuckoo.

Features:
  • 2 - 4 Player Local Multiplayer
    Get your friends together in the same room for the ultimate showdown!
  • 6 Game Modes
    Classic, Unarmed, Standoff, Bullet Hell, Bully/Target, Sticky Rugs (working title). More to come!
  • Procedural Level Generation
    Each environment has its own set of procedural content rules, as well as its own gameplay elements built in to it. (Currently two environments). No match is ever the same! more to come!)
  • Adjustable Game Speed
    Play super slow-mo, HYPER_SPEED, and everything in between.
  • Transparent Development
    Builds with new features released every few weeks -- watch the game come together as we're developing it! Engage with us and give us your feedback. Help us get it on to Early Access!

Play Blackpool: The Games

Along with stalwart colleagues, Clockwork Cuckoo, we braved the bank-holiday traffic to drag our sweet behinds up to Play Blackpool to show the latest Friendship Club build.

 

Rather than give you a blow-by-blow account of our whole weekend (not that exciting), I'll instead talk about some of the games I got to play whilst I was there (more exciting). I'll also tell you about a little game we invented for the motorway that kept us engaged for about eight hours worth of driving (overwhelmingly exciting).
