Friendly Fire is a dialog-driven indie pixel platformer with metroidvania elements originally developed as a team effort for the game jam Ludum Dare #46 within three days.

Afterwards, the game was revisited, polished and published to Steam as a free game. Additionally, the game can still also be played directly in a browser.

Friendly Fire throws the player into a mysterious land inhabitated by strange characters and unexpected twists of fate. Can you save the world from it's looming premonition?

  • Metroidvania-style pixel platformer
  • Handcrafted pixel art
  • Character customization
  • Original Soundtrack
  • A dozen of NPCs to interact with
  • Riddles and other challenges along the way
  • Witty Dialog
  • Multiple Endings
  • First blind playthrough takes about 30 to 60 minutes

The game is easily accessible for free via Steam or can be played in your browser.
In the latter case we recommend either Chrome or Firefox for the best experience.

Additionally, the source code is available on github!
