“Gloom and Doom is proof that short games can also deliver in the areas of story, characterisation, and most importantly, enjoyment.”
Geek Culture

“I’m not usually one for visual novels, but this one really grabbed me. Its characters feel fresh and well-written, and their layered personalities add a lot.”
Hardwarezone

“Check out Gloom and Doom if you’re interested in a unique take on supernatural horror with an unconventionally adorable friendship at the center of it.”

About This Game

Gloom is an ancient wraith trying to earn his way into Heaven by killing demons for an exploitative angel. Wynona is a depressed young girl who is convinced she is the Doom Bringer that will end the world.



His final task is to kill her and she's trying to die - it should be a match made in heaven. But here's the catch: She's unkillable. Gloom and Wynona will have to deal with the agents of both Heaven and Hell if they are going to discover their destinies and escape from their empty and repetitive lives.

And then there's the big dilemma: Should you save the world from a demon apocalypse, or save her soul?

Nod your head if you like:

  • 90s outcast movies:
    The type of moody characters and isolated urban environments reminiscent of your favorite scenes from The Crow, Reality Bites, Edward Scissorhands, and Before Sunrise.
  • A quirky cast of characters:
    Banter with unique characters like a skateboarding angel, a demon girl-next-door best friend, and the least humane humans around.



  • A dark coming-of-age tale about a young girl and her ghostly guardian:
    The two main characters are stuck in a repetitive cycle of frustration and loneliness, not knowing what they're meant to do. But together they'll inspire each other to push for change, kill a few demons... and maybe destroy the world.
  • Scratchy hand-drawn visuals:
    Original artwork in the style of 90s spandex superhero comics, with bold black outlines and heavily-inked blocks of shadows.



  • 7 endings to uncover:
    You could save the girl, earn a place in Heaven, or cause the end of the world. Subtle and in-your-face choices throughout the game affect the sets of endings possible when you reach the final act.
