Descend into the unknown in Shroom and Gloom a first person, dungeon-crawling, deck-building tale of mushrooms and madness.
Enter The Underealm armed with nothing but a rust blade, a dying phone and a healthy appetite for roasted mushrooms. Explore your way through the depths, digging up new weapons in your quest to reach The Megashroom at all costs! Combine, grow and enchant your discoveries as you battle your way through terrifying Terry's, enchanting Bardshrooms and otherworldly Pizza Blobs!
* Slash, roast and consume your fungal foes in combo-tastic CCG combat!
* Modify your cards until each one is an abomination.
* Build a second deck for explorating The Underealm. Will you scrounge for lockpicks or simply bash down locked doors? Pay tribute to the Toad Lord or enjoy a hearty shroom soup next to your campfire? Only you can decide!
* Discover a uniquely cute & creepy world of hand-drawn monsters & murderous mushrooms!
'Shroom and Gloom' was summoned into reality for the 2021 edition of 7 Day FPS as a part of the Free Lives expedition to Swellendam.
Our goal was to make an first person CCG that allowed for creative deck-building and mega-combos. We also thought it'd be fun to explore your combat deck being built through using a second collectible deck. So far we're just 16 days in and we've only been able to scratch the surface of the idea!
OUR PARTY WAS:
Evan "Shroom-Whisperer" Greenwood: Design, Code & Art
Ben "Roast-Master" Rausch: Design & Art
Jason "Jack and Slash" Sutherland: Music & Audio
HAEZER "Just plain HAEZER" HAEZER: Music & Audio
UPDATE: 2 weeks after we launched it, we've been totally overwhelmed by the positive response to this little prototype!
Thanks to everyone who picked the game up, played it, and shared their thoughts! We've loved hearing from every single one of you, and would be so stoked to keep the conversation going! We might make a dedicated Gloom and Shroom one in the future, but for now come hang out with us over on the Free Lives Discord! In there you'll find a Gloom and Shroom channel under the 'prototypes' section of the server. Swing by and say hi!
Thanks again for all the support, enthusiasm and encouragement!💖
