A Giant Goblin's Xmax Tale
In this 4th-wall-breaking game you take control of the Giant Goblin who has just shot down Santa on Xmas night. Together, you and the Giant Goblin will go on a merry-old-fashioned-evil-ghost-candy-killing-holiday rampage, to maybe save Xmas from the jerk, Valdeze, who has stolen the naughty-and-nice-list and all the presents.

  • The whole tale is fully voiced by actors
  • 2D pixelart arcade comedy/horror shooter
  • The main game can also be played local co-op
  • Local 4 player VS. mode
  • The Giant Goblin will complain if you control him badly
  • Full of surprises and strange things

This looks rather interesting. :)

I'm a bit confused though. Is this co-op/multiplayer only or does the list only mention that as feature in addition to a solo mode?

I'm very glad you think so. I can see how that is misleading, I'll update the description as this can indeed be played single player.
It should also be quite clear from the trailer. Is there a way to embed the Youtube trailer in this post?

This looks rather thorough. Nice work :)

It would be a good idea to post some information about how you used SFML in this project.
Selba Ward - SFML drawables
Kairos - Timing Library
Rectangular Boundary Collision - Rectangular SAT Collision

Thank you very much. And I'm glad you mention it.
This game relies entirely on SFML as it uses sf::RenderWindow to open the display, sf::Sprite for all graphics (except debug rendering of hit boxes) (and text but that uses sf::Text instead), all events and input go through sf:Event and sf::SoundBuffer handles the sound and many others like sf::Vector2f and sf::Clock are used all the time. So all in all this game is pure SFML. Maybe wrapped inside some helper classes but nevertheless.
I should really use this opportunity to thank the SFML developers and this community as without them this would not have been =) So thanks!
