Bulb Boy is a 2D point-and-click adventure in which you solve puzzles and defeat monsters to reveal a twisted tale. The idea behind Bulb Boy is to create a heart-gripping horror story with a creepy feel.

The aim of the Bulb Boy Team is to produce fluid gameplay based on puzzle-solving mechanics without the addition of senseless riddles.


  • Bulb’s talents – Not only does his head light up and emit heat and electrical shocks, it 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.

Bulb Boy has no spoken dialog. Instead, the game’s story unfolds in animated clouds.

The game is to be released on Mac, PC, Linux, iOS and Android. A Kickstarter campaign is in progress until July 27th, and the developer is looking to get the game Greenlit.

For the sake of gamers in the US, let’s hope Bulb Boy’s bulb isn ‘t incandescent.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
