Spring is here, and the blooming plant-based protagonists of BrambleLash are getting ready to venture off into the outside world. This creative co-op game is the work of the ByteSprite crew, who you may remember from such posts as “BrambleLash Demo Out Now” and “Oompf! Games fund Winners Announced“. Now they’re reaching out to you, so why not lend a hand and help bring this game about connecting with friends onto Steam.
BrambleLash is a spritely multiplayer co-op with tactical team-and-swap strategy. Enchanted sprites work together to defeat slimy invaders in a whimsical setting full of glimmering shadows. Connect, co-operate or betray to win!

Earlier this year FTI announced the OOMPF! Games fund, a one-off members production fund to the value of $10,000. Following a number of submissions from local developers, the judges have made their decision and the winners have been announced!
Offpeak Games will receive $2500 for the development of Valiant, a virtual reality jousting game that uses the Oculus Rift; Stirfire Studios, the folks behind the award-winning Freedom Fall, were awarded $5000 to go towards the development of their next big game D3bug; and last but by no means least, ByteSprite were awarded $2500, which will assist them in completing their cooperative two-player garden game BrambleLash.
For all the details on these games and the Oompf! Games fund, head on over to FTI’s official announcement.

There was once a time where two-player games involved heading out into the garden and running around with your best friend for a few hours. Times may be a’ changing, but you can still tap into the age old joys of sprinting through the grass, and working together to slice up slimey enemies. Wait, what? Introducing BrambleLash by local studio ByteSprite, a two-player game where your only defence is to stick together.
The twin-stick shooter with only one stick, no shooting, all co-ordination! BrambleLash is a multi-player party game about communication, co-operation and fightin’ grime. Leash up with your planty partner and run sludgy enemies through with your thorny tether, while simultaneously working together to avoid their noxious attacks. Play with your friends, play with your enemies, play with your frenemies!
The first demo for the game has just been released, so if you’re keen to tether up and be a thorn in the side of some sludgy foes, simply head on over to the BrambleLash indieDB page.
