Description

Everyone has had a fever dream. Weird stuff happens. Maybe your aunt is chasing you with blueberry pie convinced that “You need sustenance, sweet child!” even though she’s very much aware that you’re allergic to blueberries and that you’re a grown person who can manage your own diet. Sometimes you find yourself in an eccentric world where statues keep staring you down while you die on impact with any of your surroundings. Armed with a hookshot you must swing for your life into these glowing spheres, only to find yourself being teleported into a different, but similar world with more difficult obstacles. That’s basically Verlet Swing, a game that may or may not have been concocted during a fever dream.

Running with an idea originally pitched by Niklas Lindblad during an internal game jam, Flamebait developed and released a pre-alpha version of the game in March, 2018. Soon after release there was a ton of great feedback from fans and influencers alike. One of the goals with this game was for Flamebait to make a game with really tight gameplay, and they are VERY happy with the results!
