5 years of BolHut

5 years is a lot lot of time! We are still making games hidden in our BolHut!

2020 has been a tough year though; we started making a (party) game that now is paused because we do not feel confident developing it further unless we are able to test it with an audience (irl event). For almost half a year we were unable to make much progress game-wise during quarantine, however we took that time to make our own “engine” and tools to make making games faster, I call it TURNIP ENGINE! but it basically is a project holding our most common scripts & tools for game development within GMS 2.

Starting July we began brainstorming ideas for new games, taking our time to develop each and choose properly. On August we had to choose one to start working on and so for the past month and a half we have been working on a new Untitled game that we internally call “Parasol”.

Unfortunately I do not have enough content that I feel confident showing as of now, plus it is slowly becoming a bigger project than initially anticipated, but that makes it the more exciting!

At the beginning of September I started working on a small project on the side, because of its small scope and familiarity the project was fairly fast and easy to prototype, slowly but surely becoming today’s announcement!

Please stay tuned for a new game announcement today at 19:00 CEST (10:00 PDT)

Thank you for playing! ❤️
