Welcome to Yarntown by Max Mraz.

You’ve come on the night of the hunt. The streets of this cursed, gothic town are overrun with beasts, and what has become of the men who tried to hunt them before. Explore the twisting roads, go toe to toe with powerful foes, and uncover Yarntown’s dark secrets.

Yarntown is a 2D hommage to Bloodborne, a dark fantasy video game released on Playstation 4 in 2015. Bloodborne is as renowned for its demanding and merciless gameplay as for its incredible gothico-victorian atmosphere. This quest recreates only a part of the original game, because this is just a little side project.


Key Action
← ↑ → ↓ Move.
Space Action / Dodgeroll.
C Swing weapon
Hold to charge weapon attack.
X Shoot pistol.
V Use blood vial to heal.
D Pause and save.
You will restart at the last lantern visited.


If you haven’t played Bloodborne, here’s a quick rundown of how it works. Be prepared to die often. You can’t tell we didn’t warn you.


Using actions depletes your stamina bar. If it’s all the way down, you won’t be able to attack or dodge. The charged attack uses more stamina.

It is possible to stun ennemies. If you hit an enemy in the back with a charged attack, it will stun them. Using a normal attack while they’re stunned will deal a large amount of damage. This is called a Visceral Attack.

You can also stun an enemy and open them up for a Visceral Attack if you shoot them just before they start attacking. The window for this varies by attack. The pistol doesn’t do a ton of damage, so it is mainly useful for stunning an enemy like this.

You can roll through enemies’ attacks if you time it properly: you’re invincible for a few moments while rolling.

Enemies are very dangerous in groups, as they won’t take turns to attack you. Try to engage them one-on-onewhenever possible.


There are several lanterns throughout the level. You can choose to “Commune with the Dream” at them in order to replenish your health, and well automatically move Blood Vials and Bullets from storage to your inventory up to 20 each. However, resting at the lantern in this way will bring any enemies you’ve defeated back to life.

Defeating enemies gives you Blood Echoes. These are used as currency to buy items, as well as used to level up a Lanterns.

When you die, you will restart at the last lantern you interacted with. All your blood echoes, however, will remain where you died. Return there, without dying again, to retrieve them. If you die again without retrieving your blood echoes, they’ll be lost forever.


Choose to “Commune with the Dream” at a lantern to spend blood echoes to level up. You can raise several different stats:

  • Vitalityincreases your health.
  • Enduranceincreases your stamina.
  • Strengthincreases the damage you do, as well as defense.
  • Skillalso increases the damage you do, the damage your pistol does, and the damage visceral attacks do.

You can find Bloodstone shards which you can use at the table near the starting location to improve the damage your weapon does.

You can carry 20 Blood Vials and 20 Quicksilver Bullets on you at a time. If you collect more than this, they’ll be sent to storage. When you die, or interact with a lantern, your vials and bullets will be moved from storage to your inventory, up to the limit of 20.

Poltergeist Breakup

This is Poltergeist Breakup.

The story is that you’ve died tragically in a bizarre gardening accident and your ex has moved on swiftly and already dating within 6 moments of your death.

What they didn’t count on was you coming back as a disgruntled ghost, hell bent on keeping your ex in single misery for the rest of their days.

Revenge is a dish, best served cold. You know, like a dead body, cold, like a ghost. Cold. No? OK then.

Keep Calm. Be Respectful | What a Wonderful World (BAD COVER)

I’m seeing a lot of negativity online lately and have been in my fair share of arguments with people about what we think is the right approach for tackling the coronavirus.

I decided to learn and play this song, What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong in the hope that it might help people to remember to be a little nicer to each other and accept that these are trying times and everyone deals with this in their own way.

It will be over one day and we should not lose sight of that.

My own advice to anyone would be the following:

1: Only get your information from reputable sources like the BBC or the W.H.O. Unbiased, public funded news is the way to go.

2: Take regular breaks from being online. As great as the web can be, it can also be filled with poison and negativity at times

3: Wash your hands.

4: Remain calm.

5: Keep your heads.

6: Don’t spread misinformation.

7: Don’t spread fear and panic.

8: Don’t hoard necessities.

9: Find ways to occupy your time that doesn’t hurt, blame or upset others.

10: Only leave the house for necessities like food, exercise, caring for relatives etc.

11: Don’t gather or go to large gatherings of people.

12: Look out for the elderly but keep your distance from them and also the most vulnerable people.

13: Don’t berate people who are forced to go to work and take public transport. They’re facing the danger so you don’t have to. Taking pictures of them on public transport and calling them d*ckheads is the worst.

14: Be nice.

15: Learn a new song or dance or do something you’ve never had the time to do.

16: Have fun.

17: Respect each other and yourself.

18: Don’t use the coronavirus as an excuse or a tool to further your career or profits.

19: Learn to meditate.


Jay and Silent Bob : Mall Brawl (Demo)

This is Jay and Silent Bob Mall Brawl, an indie beat em up game in the 8-bit style of Nintendo.

You play as Jay and Silent Bob as you fight your way through a shopping mall.

This is just a demo version which is free to play. It’s good but I found it quite difficult or at least it was until I remapped the controls.

Draw Your Way to the Exit

Chicken Hike is a puzzle game created by Michim for the GMTK Game jam 2019 on itch.io.

The idea is to draw a single continuous line in order to help the chicken to get to the exit.

There are many different ways to solve each puzzle which is what’s cool about it. In saying that, I suck at this game!

You can get it free on itch.io right here: https://michim.itch.io/chickenhike
