Friendship Club at Rezzed

In the lead up to Rezzed this week 12-15 March I am getting wind of lots of games showcasing and this one took my interest as it's been described as a blend of Psychonauts and Fight club

So the background of Friendship Club (full title "Timmy Bibble's Friendship Club") was initially developed in 24 hours at the TIGA Game Hack in November 2013. It won the jam, receiving the "Best Game" award.

The project lay dormant for a few months until a week before GEEK 2014. . At GEEK 2014, it was awarded the "People's Choice Indie Award". Hooray! I do love seeing these on the spot game Jams -which pave the way for new ideas and a platform to launch them too.


At its heart it's a very fast paced, frenetic action game, where rounds can last anywhere between zero and five seconds. Levels are procedurally generated and bullets bounce forever, so you have to use varying strategies and tactics to overcome your opponents.

Combatants include 'Old Man Ricketts' a prospector driven mad by his lust for gold, 'Shakey Jake' a ninja bandit skeleton, 'Chud' a beast from the mountains and 'The Carnardinal' a duck from the Vatican.
