Do you remember Glass Bottom Games? The guys (actually more gals) that made Jones on Fire? Well, they’re back, and this time to bring us  Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore A Fedora. It’s a noir 3D side-scrolling platformer (currently) for PC, Mac and Linux where players have to explore and uncover clues, with the usual bit of cats here and there.

You’re Emma Jones, a two bit girl in an 8-bit world, and you’re the private investigator on a string of grisly murders.  You’ll run, jump and climb through a massive 3D city, sleuthing up clues and tracking down the killer. Enjoy the trailer.

We had the luck to try a beta version in advance (but ssshh, that’s a secret!) and it looks gorgeous! Definitely something we want to see finished! You all be able to try it too at next PAX.

Hot Tin Roof is currently on Kickstarter (throw them some money here) and on Steam Greenlight (vote it here).

Still uncertain if backing the game or not? Here are some features you might want consider:

    • Noir as fuck.
    • Tons of platforming and exploring, hunting for clues.
    • Cats, but not JUST cats. Pigeons too, and rats!
    • Metroidvania-esque – just more of the Metroid, less of the vania.

That’s all, we can just hope all the luck to Glass Bottom Games for their new project, hoping it’ll be able to see the light of day.

Pixels and kitties? Yes please!

jones on fire

Finally some interesting indie (super-weird) game!

Do you like pixels, fast-paced action and cats? Well, if you’re answer is yes, Jones On Fire is your dream game!

Jones On Fire, developed by Glass Bottom Games, is a run-and-jumper about firefighter Emma Jones and kitties (which should be saved). As Jones, you’ll be tasked with running through 10 levels of hilly terrain, much of it on fire, for one purpose only: to save the kitties! Through saving kitties, you’ll gradually unlock the true potential of Jones, which will allow you to save even MORE kitties. Dominate your friends on the kitty-saving leaderboards, and gain the adoration of millions of cats!

Jones On Fire began its life at BlazeJam, a 48 hour charity game jam to benefit those affected by the Colorado wild fire season of 2012. The game has evolved substantially since those days. It’s been rebuilt for mobile devices, all of the art has been redone or replaced, the moment to moment gameplay is substantially changed, a level structure was added, etc, etc. Compared to the alpha, the game Jones On Fire is a whole other animal. That is, except for the kitties. Those are still the same animal.

Jones On Fire will be released on iOS o February 21st. If you’re super-hyped, kill the waiting with the trailer.
