About us:

Arcade Coin is a game company started by Andrew Smith in 2015. Since then I have worked alone on a few projects, such as Get To The Orange Door, a parkour FPS game on Steam! This is the first time I have had a team to work with, and it has been a joy!

Thanks so much for the Gooseberry Jam hosts for giving us the opportunity to work on Sinister Sermon, and also to take place in the jam! It was a blast, and I look forward to seeing you all in 'H' Jam!

Well done! It brings back the nostalgia of some of the best retro N64 era games with quirky characters, dialog and gameplay. With a project like this, it would be easy just to focus on the gameplay (a simple wave shooter), but they made it a lot more fun by adding a certain amount of character, personality and charm to the game. Honestly, seeing the quirky animations and maniacal laugh of the scientist is worth the download alone.


As a good little 15 minute game, I do love the atmosphere. Especially because it is a retro type of game. You really don't get a mass of retro games, even as indie made ones. As well as the ending, I loved that twisty bits of that.
