Bulb Boy is a 2D point & click horror adventure about a boy with a glowing head (alright, it's a bulb...) inspired by Machinarium and Gobliiins.

Solve awesome puzzles, defeat wicked monsters and learn new abilities to reveal the twisted tale. Ohhh... And don't forget to save your GRANDPAraffin and Mothdog from the frightening darkness.[/b]
  • BULB'S TALENTS - Being a boy that is a bulb comes with many talents. Not only does your head light up, emits heat and electrical shocks, but can also be unscrewed for use in other places.

  • SAVE YOUR HOUSE - Explore the Bulb's house, overshadowed by dark forces. Defeat the evil in all its forms and bring the light back.

  • PLAYABLE FLASHBACKS - Relive Bulb Boy’s childhood memories to uncover the history of the old family house and its residents.

  • DEFEAT THE MONSTERS - The house is split up into sections, representing chapters of the story. Be careful as the house is full of frightering monsters. And don't forget to use a little trickery to defeat bosses.

  • EERIE DESIGN - The graphics combine the elements of a likeable and emotional character with an eerie-horror backdrop.

In the Electric Forest, lived a boy with a glowing head who was called Bulb Boy. He grew up in a big old house with his GRANDPAraffin and Mothdog. It was a time of fun, friendship and love.

One gloomy night, Bulb wakes suddenly from a frightening nightmare to discover that darkness has overshadowed the old family house. GRANDPAraffin and Mothdog have disappeared… Are they ok?

Bulb Boy is a POINT & CLICK ADVENTURE. This old-school mechanic relies on using the cursor (or touch - for mobile devices). Point and click to explore scenes and to interact with objects. Find, collect and use different items to solve the puzzles.

With Bulb Boy we want to refresh this genre and offer a new aspect to this mechanic. The main character, Bulb will LEARN SKILLS that will give players a new approach when solving puzzles. He will be able to change his body, TOSSING HIS HEAD INTO OTHER BULB HOLDERS, as well as using heat and electric shocks to DEFEND AND ATTACK enemies. The game will include REFLEX ELEMENTS when battling head to head with the freakiest monsters.

Light your head or you will spil red.
