A Happy Hero

Description

Happy Grumps is a rogue-lite puzzle game about spreading happiness to a grumpy world. Each run is a new, randomly generated challenge full of puzzles, bosses, branching paths, and powerful synergies between rule-breaking trinkets.

History

Happy Grumps is being made entirely by one person. Glenn walked away from his "successful" 80+ hour per week career in corporate America (that was slowly killing him) to become a stay-at-home dad and keep a promise to his newborn daughter to get less grumpy. Happy Grumps is dedicated to her.
