Coming in 2024

A screenshot of SHORT FUSE.

For one reason or another, your employer has a LOT of bombs. No one would send out untested bombs, so it's QAs job to defuse them! Wait... are cakes normally bombs? Never mind that. Chase the clock, snip red wires, and try not to think too hard about the logistics in SHORT FUSE!

He's leaving the job up to you because he would rather stick to game and level design in his spare time rather than risk his life in a bomb factory.
