Blood Bucket

“Your local Blood Bank is in trouble, be sure to donate generously!”

In a world of darkness, (but not THE World of Darkness) blood is the only energy source running the city. Take control of the mysterious Janitor. A newly-sired vampire now working as the unwitting debt collector for the Black Cross, a shadowy vampire agency whose reach encapsulates all of Los Angeles. Shoot, stab, and occasionally bleed your way through a never-ending onslaught of enemies in this side-scrolling shooter inspired by the classic Thing-Thing arena.


  • Over three weapons!
  • Over one level!
  • More than one SUPER COOL blood power!
  • Disgusting, revolting, legitimately crude art direction inspired by classic Newgrounds and old Nickelodeon cartoons!
  • Fanfiction-tier writing by a fanfiction writer!
  • LOTS of blood, but not enough to be considered NSFW!
  • Featuring thematic, moody acoustics from local musical talent!

I made an account to tell you that this is fucking amazing. It's literally the only competently-written game I've seen on so far. Loads of fun, and yes, I do suck. You didn't have to say it.

Cool game, really fun!


Hank J Wimbelton, seriously


This was a lot of fun. The idea of a vampire janitor is so funny. Can't wait to see more of it.

nice prototype


Ok this games idea is super cool and its inspired me to make my own game about blood (please dont take thar out of context). As a joke though I did the tutorial as a pacifist just using the mop to clean and the diaglouge and comedy was really funny so props to whoever did that


Nice game! Don't forget to upload it as well to All GoGodotJam 2 games uploaded there will get $5 extra for the event's fundraiser.


Amazing game dev 


A game where you mop up blood!? I thought videogames were suppose to let me escape from my real life.
