Friday Night Bullet Arena is a top-down multiplayer shoot-a-thon with a twist: each player only gets one bullet! You can catch your own bullet to fire again, but catching other bullets is... not recommended.


Friday Night Bullet Arena was originally started by May Gardens in the spring of 2014, as a demo for the University of Victoria's Game Development club. It was worked on intermittently around the demands of school and work for two years. In the spring of 2016, May teamed up with Dylan Gedig to ramp up development and bring it to a commercial release.

FNBA released on Steam on Sept. 30 2016 to positive reviews, and was a finalist for Best Debut Game at the 2016 Canadian Video Game Awards and a finalist for the SXSW Community Choice Award.
