Developer Info

Glass Bottom Games is a virtual studio, with all its members working out of home offices. We're a diverse group, and we all met over the course of working on previous projects together (both LEGO Universe, and later Jones On Fire). We're a little punk, very indie, and aim to make a living through making kickass art.

Developer's Artistic Statement

Hot Tin Roof explores gender themes overtop a hard-boiled 1920's world. It inverts tropes as well as gameplay mechanics (such as a gun that can't be used to kill anyone) in the service of such, and generally tries to be a subversively queer Metroidvania game. It also has talking cats and rats and pigeons who wear tiny hats, and generally aims for subtle, pervasive humor with an edge.
