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.

History

Originally pitched by the CTO Niklas Lindblad as a 3D swinging game during an internal pitch session, Flamebait quickly fell in love with the concept and developed and released a pre-alpha version in March 2018 to the public. The game got tons of praise from fans and influencers alike so Flamebait decided to continue the hard work of creating a full product. Verlet Swing got its release on Steam in September the same year and sits on an impressive 95% positive reviews, something that the team is very proud of.
