About

BOMBFEST is a local-multiplayer, physics-based party game where players battle with bombs to be the last toy standing. It’s a lot like sumo with explosives! Use bombs to blast away your foes, but be careful that you don’t get caught in a chain reaction of your own creation! Battle in different environments, and take advantage of destructible towers, cardboard traps, and speeding toy cars!

BOMBFEST features 2-button controls and simple mechanics that are quick to learn and fun to master. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert gamer or a party game novice - anyone can pick-up and play BOMBFEST!

  • 4 player local multiplayer for friendly battles or settling grudges!
  • Tons of unique bombs for blowing away the competition!
  • Over a dozen hand-crafted stages for you to duke it out on!
  • Play with keyboard, mouse, or your favorite console controllers!
  • Options and modifiers to play how you want to play!

Zac Pierce, the creator of BOMBFEST, has been funding the game's development out of his own pocket. With funds running low, and a drive to get BOMBFEST into the hands of the public, Zac decided to seek the support of backers through Kickstarter.

BOMBFEST is nearly complete. Through Kickstarter, we hope to finish up the game and run a successful marketing campaign. Development funds would be used to produce things like more music, SFX, stages, and to pay fees required to launch on major consoles. We primarily intend to spend marketing funds on influencer marketing, streamers, and sponsored videos to help us survive in the oversaturated world of indie games.

With your help, we hope plan to continue developing BOMBFEST long after launch with new stages, bombs, and customization options. This can only happen with your support!

Are you a streamer with a strong following? If you'd like to stream BOMBFEST ahead of launch, hit us up over on our key request page!

We're shooting to launch the game on January 8th, 2019!
BOMBFEST will release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.

Sudden Event Studios, founded by Zac Pierce, is the development team behind BOMBFEST.

Other talents include Matthew Trowbridge, BOMBFEST's sound effects artist, and Kevin Virnelson, the composer of BOMBFEST's soundtrack.

Risks and challenges

BOMBFEST is nearly complete, and the current build has every major feature! All that's left to do is finish a few minor systems, add more unlockables, and polish things up. We're confident that the game will be complete and running smoothly by launch, and the real risk lies in getting back our investment through sales!

There's always a chance something can go totally wrong, and if something does, we promise to be upfront and honest while we solve development roadblocks.
