Mostly coherent ramblings about game design decisions, thoughts and ideas from the designers of Free Lives games (Broforce, Genital Jousting, GORN VR).

Developer Diary: Dev Logs

The dev logs chronicle our successes and failures as we work towards releasing our games.

Game Jam Island 2: Bali 2018

Free Lives, indie game devs from South Africa, are in Bali for a month to game jam and (hopefully) find their next big project. In 2016, they went to Mauritius for 3 months for Game Jam Island 1. This year, they have less time, and SO MUCH MORE HEAT.

Game Jam Island 1: Mauritius 2016

Nearly a year after releasing BROFORCE, follow the Free Lives studio in a documentary series chronicling their latest (stupidest?) antics. They're moving the whole studio to a remote tropical island for 3 months, and inviting some of their international indie dev friends and heroes to come spend some time jamming with them. Will this be a huge waste of money? Or will they make some awesome games? Who knows at this point! Follow Game Jam island to find out!
