2018 Game Demo Trailer


Welcome to the world of Nimbin, a world full of strange characters and even stranger characters. Shooty and Zaat are a team dedicated to solving mysterious monster mysteries, for a price of course, as much as they love what they do they cant do it just for the love ya know. In todays episode a call comes in from a mushroom mining town called Grit where strange things are definitely afoot!

Shooty and the Catfish is an episodic series with 5 episodes in total planned, each of these episodes building on the mechanics and story as they go. With a Game Boy Color inspired aesthetic and an original EDM soundtrack by Jim Hort and a unique resource management based combat system, I hope you enjoy this first entry into this strange new series.

The Shooty and the Catfish: Episode 1 - Released

Its been a long time coming but Shooty and the Catfish: Episode 1 is finally release and damn it feels good.

You can check out the launch trailer right here!


Or if you are feeling really bold you can download and play the game from itch.io here: https://visitorsfromdreams.itch.io/shootycatfish-episode1

So where from here?

Well, Episode 2 has already had all of its dungeon and encounters completed so it that really needs to be done is the intro town and a flashback series that will start off the episode and help fill out Shooty and Zaats relationship a bit more, something I want to focus more on now the first episode has established the games tone and mechanics.

Before I can get to wrapping up Episode 2 however I have some freelance and animation commitments I need to get out of the way. Rest assured I will be setting up a game page for it in the coming weeks.

In the mean time, thank you for everyones support during episode 1s production, it means the world to me. Happy shooting!

- Daniel

I just finished the demo and I will leave my comments here:

I had a blast and just want to leave some short thoughts!

Things I liked:

- The enemy graphics are amazing. They ooze with so much personality and I actually look forward to running into them.

- I loved the battle animations and how smooth they were. Stabbing has never been so fun.

- I liked the nice touch of on map enemy death animations. I think the crabs shot blood lol?

- The skull guy who cussed every second. He had me laughing every sentence. He caught me off guard at first which was great.

- The amount of treasures were very enjoyable.

- The music is very catchy. The normal battle theme reminded me of Mother 3 for some reason. And I liked the ambient noises from the sewers.

- Most importantly, battles are smooth and fast. They never dragged on at all.

- I really liked the Gameboy type save station thing. It's just a nice little touch of nostalgia.

- I never thought I would be called a cuck or leftist by a boss, but it made me very happy.

Anyway, I am hyped for the full release and would love to write a proper review when its finished. Take your time with it, I'm impressed! Great work.

Aw shucks.

Time will tell, I don't see it happening personally, its my first attempt at a large project and has some gameplay issues that cant be fixed without starting over BUT maybe it will all work out in the end, ha ha.
LOVE the video :-) Great animation. I need to try this game out.
