Gumgem 2.0 OUT NOW!


It's been a years and a half since the release of Gumgem 1.0.
When the game initially released, I received several feedbacks and I was very happy to see a lot of people enjoyed the game.

I started working on this update not long after the release, aiming to solve the problems you pointed out and to improve aspects of the game that still didn't satisfy me.
I initially planned to release a "minor" update, only adding a few things, improving controls, mechanics and fixing bugs.

Then I got carried away, new content and features were added one after the other and I couldn't stop.
The result is something that looks more like a sequel than a simple update, even if the concept is the same.

So, here we go, Gumgem 2.0 is released!
And with a special 100% OFF discount to celebrate!

Here's the semi-complete changelog!

this game provided me with hours of fun!!! finally beat it 1 heart remaining, not 1 heart lost in bossfight. hard, but AMAZING. YOU MUST PLAY THIS

It warms my heart to know that! Thank you so much!

Finally beat it, and with only 1 heart remaining!  Really chaotic boss fight (could have done without the disorienting screen shaking), but a good fight design, and a very funny ending.  😄

Ehy! I'm happy you enjoyed the game!
A review would be very appreciated, if you like!

Already a great improvement from what I've played so far!  The new menus are nice, the fullscreen option is much-welcome, and the optional training and are well-done, with nice dialogue.
