Press Release: Check Out FLCL: Firestarter By Silverware Games


We were contacted by Michael Silverman, president of Silverware Games, Inc., regarding a new game they’ve created. Michael and Silverware Games are big fans of Fooly Cooly, and with FLCL coming back with Progressive and Alternative, they decided to put together a fan game based on the first season of FLCL, episode two called Firestarter.

Concept

No one knows how Endsville, the city of Devils, was born. But as soon as it was created it prospered, slowly eating up the world. The player serves Cantido, god of black flame, and must hinder Endsville’s growth by setting it afire.

Hide from the police and torch the city to purge it of devils. But you mustn’t burn everything. If the entire city burns down, you will have no place to stay. You will not be able to live. There can be no final victory. The only thing you can do is burn and burn.

Your only hope is Cantido’s blessing, god of black flame.

Description

Inspired by the first season of Fooly Cooly, an original video animation six-episode anime series aired by Adult Swim in the United States back in 2003. Fooly Cooly: Firestarter lets you explore Mamimi Samejima’s pyromania obsession with a handheld video game that the show explores in episode two of FLCL.

Mamimi’s description of the game is that you must burn down Endsville, the city of devils, and that there can be no final victory: all you can do is burn and burn. All in the hopes of pleasing the god of black flame Canti-sama.

Recently, FLCL has gotten a reboot in the form of FLCL Progressive and FLCL Alternative and in light of this Silverware Games provides an homage experience by bringing to life Firestarter as a web browser game.

You can play it free here: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/718022

About Silverware Games, Inc.

Boilerplate
At Silverware Games, we make fun games to help people find fun in life.

We are building the ‘Matchyverse’, a series of games staring ‘Matchy Star’ and friends. To create this universe we successfully released ‘MatchyGotchy’ a tamagotchi like casual game, ‘MatchyGotchy Pack’ a set of original papercraft models to build, and ‘Matchy’s Kooky Cookies’ a clicker jam game. Currently we are working on ‘MatchyGotchy Z’ a sequel to ‘MatchyGotchy’ and ‘Matchy Star’ a Match-Them-All twist on a Match3 game.

We have also released unusually nerdy entertainment including ‘Don’t Shoot Yourself!’ a puzzle shmup where you dodge your own bullets, ‘Speedway Heroes,’ a wacky kart race to the DMV including horses and UFOs, ‘Composition J,’ an abstract puzzler in the most artistic sense, and ‘Strategery 2012,’ where players become president of the USA “Avanced War” style.

We have published for mobile, PC, Mac, and web browsers since late 2000’s; hopefully we will expand to console gaming in the future too. We love video games, we love entertainment.
