Blomst is a cute dungeon-crawler full of flowers.

Delve deep into the dungeon of flowers and use the fluid twin-stick style controls to collect beautiful flora and pick on skeleton guys with your huge sword!

Created for the 2016 A Game By Its Cover game jam and inspired by this Famicase cover. And while the game jam has ended, this game is very much still in development! Look forward to updates in the coming weeks.

Controls: Keyboard/mouse and standard XBOX gamepads are supported. Hold I / Back in-game to see all controls.

Features that could be cool to develop at some point: More enemies and flowers, more diverse environments, friendly NPCs, better combat, story bits, boss battles, and of course SFX and music.

Changelog for v0.5 (21 August 2016):

  • Added skeleton run animation.
  • Improved skeleton AI (now with pathfinding!)
  • Added "squirting cucumbers". Hit them, and they go flying! Seeds hurt you and enemies.
  • Now uses YoYo Compiler. It seems to work decently.
  • General optimisation and minor text fixes. Hopefully it runs a bit better now. Still much to improve in terms of performance though!

Updates currently paused, as I am busy with other things.

Developed by @Bakufreak

Inspired by Ribbon Black's cover

man, looks cool. (Wish I didn't have a mac though...)

Known bug: Having multiple computer mice plugged in simultaneously can make the game laggy while aiming with some of those mice. I'll look into this for the next build.

Very pretty :)

The game seems to crash almost immediately after loading. Sometimes it takes seconds, and sometimes it runs until I attack. It's a shame, the game looks nice. I have to Force Close the game to get out.

Huh, that seems weird. How exactly does it crash? Does it just freeze, or does a fatal error popup appear? If a popup appears, please copy and paste what it says as that would tell me the exact cause of the crash.

Usually it will freeze and I will have to force close, but sometimes it just minimizes to the desktop and runs in the background while not letting me bring focus back to it. I don't get a popup.

neat style and the gameplay is fun as well


Very nicely done! :)


I like the Dungeon of Flowers cover a ton, so it's great to see such a pretty game version of it! I love the colors. It was very fun and fluid to whack skeletons, and I'm also impressed by the dungeon generation. Nice work. :)


Please b0ss! Your art is so pretty, let me get a closer look!


Hey! There's finally a playable build! Long way from feature complete, but the general loop is there I think :D
