By becoming a patron, you'll have access to every game I've made so far, which adds up to hours and hours of gameplay. Just check out the Downloads Section



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 been 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!  SEPTEMBER GAMES: 

THE BACKROOMS
"If you're not careful and you noclip out of reality in the wrong areas, you'll end up in the Backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of old moist carpet, the madness of mono-yellow, the endless background noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz, and approximately six hundred million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms to be trapped in
God save you if you hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell has heard you




EVIL CLOWNS

After an eventful evening at the carnival, you accidentally fall asleep in the Funhouse. Too bad for you the place comes alive at night and EVIL CLOWNS roam the halls.



TONIGHT IT FOLLOWS

Escape an unrelenting horror that never stops as you make your way through a cemetery at night.
A 2D pixel art survival horror game inspired by Silent Hill! Created by Jordan King @LeggoMyGiallo






STAY OUT OF THE HOUSE



The smack of a hammer... your head lands hard on the dirty linoleum floor... a maniac drags you up the stairs and cages you like an animal! You have three days until the reckoning...

Working on new SOOTH content and hopefully wrapping it up.

THE GLASS STAIRCASE
The Glass Staircase is a homage to ps2 survival horror and Italian zombie movies. Uncover the horrible secrets of the manor as your friends disappear one by one.

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.

You are the maniac! Texas Butcher will be released 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

Goals
100% 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.
