A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Mr. Puffin in The Dark Castle is an homage to the original Dark Castle for Macintosh and some sort of Dark Souls-y (eventually, at least. Right now it's a mess!) horror action with a puffin!

It was made for the Idle Thumbs Wizard Jam 4. Therefore it's terribly short, as in there's basically just a Puffin in a Coat who fights a bunch of zombies. But I hope I can expand a bit on this later.

A Gamepad Controller is Highly Recommended!

  • Left stick - Move Mr. Puffin
  • Right stick - Move camera
  • Right trigger - Punch
  • B - Sprint

I spent way too much time doing art, so the "win" condition is just dying.. in a painfully ungraceful manner.
