Game Zone: Slinki

by daiashi

About The Game

Slinki is a side view 2.5D action-platformer where your own prosthetic arm is the ultimate multipurpose weapon. Use it as a bladed boomerang to control the population of mutated critters, pull levers towards you to get through puzzles and zip-line across grappling surfaces. All this to find out what happened to the once peaceful forest you used to live in.


Slinki's once peaceful and smooth-running home has gone horribly wrong, with every denizen gone crooked and twisted, and irrevocably hostile. Himself affected and warped as well, Slinki can just sit there and waste away, or take the last of his strength to the Forest's Core, and end the misery whatever ill-bred rascal thought to fester in it's depths.

About The Company

Titan Forged Games is a digital games company from Coimbra, Portugal. They're just starting out but they hope you'll enjoy their games!


In the early days of 2008, Nuno Barreto, a little Portuguese boy with the dream of someday making a Spider-Man videogame, had enrolled in a BSC in Computer Engineering. He was accompanied by Pedro Caetano, another young fool already set on sacrificing his life to the gods of videogaming. Together, they decided to make their own game studio. Soon after, another misled "youth," David Fial, asked to join, to help out with odds and ends. The three agreed with the daring enterprise, and joined forces. The studio was officially formed in 2012, and the first game was planned, named "Brian Storm." The team evolved with the abduction of Sérgio Alves from his peaceful existence, to lead the artistic side of the endeavour, and everything was set in motion.

Some Gameplay Screenshots

Getting It To Run

Install Steam (if you don't have it installed already), then start it. You will need to create a new account, if you do not already have one. Once you have Steam up and running, go to the store tab. Click on the Linux tab if you wish and search for Slinki. Click on and download the demo. If you have updated your system, including graphics drivers, you should be good to go.
