A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The elevator door opens, revealing a room you didn't even know this building had. At its center, a pineapple sits on a dusty altar, surrounded by scattered papers and boxes.

Something about this feels fundamentally wrong, and the hair on the back of your neck stands up.

This place shouldn't exist...

Every sensible part of your brain screams at you to leave. But you feel something beckoning. You're drawn closer, and, unable to stop yourself, you reach out to touch the mysterious fruit before you -



The Bromeliad Incident is the story of the end of the world. Fire rains from the sky, the Earth shakes below you, thunder rolls, and the sun, wretched and bloated and dying, looms large above.

Your only friend is the pineapple, and it will guide you in its own special way, and bring a pleasant fruity scent to the otherwise acrid and choked atmosphere. Collect the pellets, find the exit, and do your best to not die in the process. And most importantly: watch the skies.

The world will be different each time, and some things will certainly be missed in only a single playthrough. There are multiple difficulty options, as well, for a generous increase in the amount of death and destruction if desired.



TBI was created after I was given a challenge to make a game based on the first result from a random game idea generator. Obliging, I was presented with the following:

"A sci-fi game where you explore a maze led by the most ridiculous pineapple, but everything is on fire."

I do hope the game lives up to that wonderful description. And if you download it - thank you. If you purchase it, you are officially a Cool Person. But overall, I hope you at least have a bit of fun with it.
