There’s Bloom Enough for the Both of Us

April 3rd - via:
The arduous development of Studio Fawn’s Bloom has met yet another hurdle in the form of a similarly titled project by students on a game design program at the University of Southern California. Fawn’s Bloom finally found funding as a result of the studio’s third attempt at a Kickstarter campaign last December, but a blog post published to the studio’s website last night by Lead Designer Dani Landers alerted fans of the game to what she described as an ‘ugly situation’. Cliqist spoke to Dani earlier today regarding the latest challenge that Studio Fawn is facing. (Read More)

Bloom: Memories releases alpha demo in support of Kickstarter

November 12th - via:
Bloom: Memories, a gorgeous-looking 2D action adventure RPG, is looking to raise $40,000 on Kickstarter. Pitting itself as a little bit different from other games, it “moves away from the cliche of violence and domination”, and will permit players to use stealth, strategy and diplomacy to avoid combat completely if they so choose. An interesting concept – and you can try a PC demo for yourself. Check out the trailer and pitch video through the break, and throw it a vote on Steam Greenlight if it catches your fancy, although the developer would probably also like a pledge and is offering various rewards and stretch goals to tempt you. (Read More)

Bloom: Memories heads to Kickstarter to fund a new take on the ARPG formula

November 12th - via:
Bloom: Memories is an ambitious action RPG that’s going to try to marry the exploration of Zelda, the stealth of Thief, and the living world of Harvest Moon. With a big emphasis on clever solutions beyond violence and a really beautiful batch of concept art, I’m not surprised that Bloom is already halfway to its $40,000 funding goal after only a couple of days on Kickstarter. (Read More)

Bloom Is A Gorgeous Thief (Yes, Thief) Influenced ARPG

November 12th - via:
Bloom: Memories is something of a strange creature – less of a genre melting pot and more a genre blender set to liquefy – but I very much appreciate what it’s trying to accomplish. The action-RPG cites everything from Legend of Zelda to Thief to Harvest Moon as core influences, and – in something of a first considering ARPGs’ “click-click-click loot pinata deathsplosion” roots – it offers multiple entirely non-violent options. Or you can plow through every one of the game’s mysterious man-machine remnants of a dark past, though be warned: the world will meet violence with violence. An eye for an eye. (Read More)
