The Sword and the Slime is a non traditional puzzle-platformer where the player, using only the mouse, controls a magical flying sword on a quest through deep dungeons and enchanted forests. The player must use the sword to directly and indirectly influence the environment in order to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles. While this mostly involves hacking things up with the sword, violence doesn’t solve everything. You’ll have to think outside the box and work with an unconventional and slimy ally.


Since 2016, we have been working on this game in our spare time adding bits here and there, experimenting and tweaking as we go. A we refined the core game the team has grown with the game in order to meet its need for further design and development, event support, marketing and promotion, and music. The Sword and the Slime is truly a passion project that has been pulled together over countless nights and weekends. Together we look forward to bringing you our silly slimy little game.


  • Use only the mouse to move and attack
