Hi! You can call me Puppet Combo or just Ben. I'm a solo game developer working on 80s & 90s style survival horror games with a slasher movie twist. You may know my previous games Babysitter Bloodbath and Power Drill Massacre

The road to creating polished, fun, and scary games is difficult. Because past titles were self-funded and available for free, it's tough keeping the lights on. I've turned to Patreon for funding so I can make bigger and better stuff and eventually expand Puppet Combo into a small team to fulfill all your grindhouse gaming needs.

I'd love to keep making games and with your support, I can! Really hope you become a patron, join the community and try out my latest work. Thanks!

Below are some recent patreon only games and demos that are available now. See the Downloads Section



APRIL GAME: STAY OUT OF THE HOUSE!





As the “Night Ripper” terrorizes the city , Rachel must walk home alone after work. But a short trip goes astray when the streets are cordoned off due to another slaying and she's forced down a back alley. Unfortunately for her, the Ripper isn't done for the night.

MCM is a survival horror, stealth game I started in 2016 with code left over from a canceled update of Power Drill Massacre. It's kind of a long story. In 2015 I started updating the graphics, gameplay and storyline of PDM, transforming it into something totally different. Eventually I realized this was a mistake and the project was canceled. Rather than throw away all of my work, I used bits and pieces to put together a prototype for a new game called Meat Cleaver Mutilator.

It really is the spiritual successor to that Power Drill Massacre update. The full version coming out in 2018 will take place in and around an adandoned mental asylum in Missouri.

You are the maniac! Texas Butcher will be released in 2018 on all platforms that don't ban it. Two demos are available now. Let the carnage begin!

Help me reach the goal to finished PDM. I basically need to recode the whole thing and rebuild some of the levels. I'll also be adding new content and fixing the mechanics so it's a far better game. I've learned a lot since I made the demo, and I think the final version will have all the great parts of PDM without the annoying broken stuff in it. I'll also start working on sequel ideas when the full game is complete

Expanding the team!

I'd like to start adding team members to fill in the blanks and work on the things I'm not great at.

First and most importantly, I need to hire a level designer.
Creating environments probably takes up 65% of my time. Having somebody take over means I can focus on better gameplay, puzzle design, sound, programming and all the other things that could be improved if I had more time to put into them.

An animator. This is another weakness of mine, especially when it comes to combat, gore and cutscene animations. It can take me several days to make attack animations. Contracting out specific animations would be a huge help and result in much higher quality work than I'm capable of on my own.

Other art. There are always other areas I could use help with, especially texturing, character models and vhs art. Those 80's style characters take a long time to make (especially the hairdos!). And more hand painted vhs art! I know great artists and I'd love to be able to afford their help.
