Short N Sweet Games is a brand new publishing label focused on short and premium indie video game experiences that aims to bring super fun, satisfying and affordable games that fit into anyone's schedule. "As gamers", explains Paulo Luis Santos, Company Director of Short N Sweet, "sometimes we just want to find a nice, entertaining, high quality short game that you don't really need to invest a lot on, but they seem oddly hard to find! That's the gap Short N Sweet is here to fill".
Short N Sweet enters the spotlight announcing four new games, Mirrored Souls, Holy Hunt, UDO, and Food Boy, which will be released on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch during 2023. This varied line-up mixes a wide variety of genres and visual styles, from tributes to classic games to pixel art roguelikes or platformers, but they share the Short N Sweet principles in common: quality over quantity (good games don’t need to overstay their welcome with filler!), simplicity (so players can enjoy a carefree experience even between an AAA title and the next) and affordability (players get a good deal for great games while devs and the publisher get fair compensations).
Check out the description of each game below to see what Short N Sweet has in store for you!

- Mirrored Souls (The Bricks Studio): In this 2D "single-player-coop" puzzle-platformer, players have to reunite Ravi and Daru, two celestial beings separated in a mirrored world. Control both characters at the same time in a mirrored screen while jumping and pushing your way through a bevy of beautifully illustrated scenarios to solve challenging, mind-bending Braid-like puzzles.
- Holy Hunt (Artificial). Faith, Guns and your Holy Punch are your only chance to survive the hordes of demons in this 8-bit retro top-down shooter. Go back to the 8-bit Nintendo era in a punishing, fast and precise action-packed gameplay world that urges you to be fearless and persevering. Get the most out of your enemies in an unique bullet-based game loop by using your arsenal of bullet types and blessings from angels to stop the four horseman and a prevent the doomsday prophecy.
- UDO (Blue Firefly). Dig through a mysterious planet in a delicious arcade down-scroller roguelike that basically challenges you to dig deeper and deeper into a hole with an oversized drill! Go deeper to find mysterious technologies, improve your drill and make each run unique while being surrounded by creatures that definitely don’t want you there.
- Food Boy (Dopamin Game Studio): Paperboy meets Food Delivery Service! Inspired by the classic Paperboy, Foodboy gets players to deliver pizzas in urban environments in an exciting arcade format. Make perfect deliveries and knock out furious customers to get the highest scores and unlock new cities and challenges!
Short N Sweet aims to be a partner for up and coming studios to bring their premium console games to global audiences. The games market can be quite difficult to enter, especially for underprivileged countries, where in addition to the usual difficulties of developing and launching a game, there are also obstacles related to the lack of access, knowledge in the area and financing. With 10 years of experience in the market, Flux Games, Short N Sweet’s parent company, has seen an opportunity to help and encourage small studios to publish and develop their games, after hosting the SP Pro Game Jam event at Sao Paulo.
“When we hosted the Game Jam back in 2021, we saw such promising talent and exciting game concepts there that we realized there was an opportunity to bring these games to a wider audience regardless of the developers’ experiences”, explains Paulo. "All four games we are launching this year were born in that Game Jam, and passionately crafted since then to reach a global console market. As developers ourselves, we always wished we had opportunities like this in our early days, so we are working hard to give these talented developers a real chance to succeed".
Short N Sweet aspires to be a label that will provide opportunities, no matter the developers previous experience, to get their names out there with scope-aware products that will generate both fun and revenue. Transparent relationships are one of the company's core pillars to foster a strong, healthy community of developers and consumers.
