A Finnish Fable

What is A Finnish Fable?

A Finnish Fable is a cheery platformer set in Iron Age Finland. Run, jump, and arrow-climb through levels while avoiding squirrels and moose(meese?). Enjoy cloudberries to replenish your health and listen to Finnish folk songs in the background.

Slow Progress?

Dev Blog Posted on Thu, August 10, 2017 10:32PM

Moi my friends,

Our progress has been pretty slow again because of some issues. My laptop broke again, so I haven’t been able to post as much as usual. But enough with the reasons for our slowdown. Now, I’ll write a little about what this means for AFF. We’ve hit some walls with the code, and are working on redoing some art glitches as well. This slowdown means we can’t accurately select a release date yet, but we will keep you guys updated. I’m working on adding an on-site forum, if anyone would be interested in that. It will be for questions, discussion on your favorite enemies(meese?), and any other thing.

Wes and I are working on the second stage for A Finnish Fable and have added plenty of new stuff to the game. These haven’t been released yet, as they’re still in testing, but you can appreciate some of them in our screenshots below.
As we test, the art will improve, and we’ll update you guys when it does. I’ve been working on a new song for this new stage as well, but I’ll post about that when I’m finished. Our posts will resume in their weekly fashion, but we still recommend signing up to the mailing list here. We’re pretty excited to finally have some more stuff to show you guys and hope you are equally as excited!

We’re Not Dead

Haha, looks like Wes is taking too long on those shaders…

In all seriousness though, we apologize for not informing you like we used to. We had some issues to take care of in the real world before continuing this wonderful project and unfortunately neglected to keep you, our loyal fans, informed. However,
we’re back on track and will be until our release later this year. We will
never again leave you guys in the dark, and to demonstrate our commitment, we’ve
updated the site to include a mailing list! Here’s a link to the official AFF
mailing list
This is important, not only for you guys, but for us as well. You keep us going
and it’s really nice to hear from fans. We’ll email you guys every time we post
on the blog and also to share super-secret screenshots. I’ve also just put up an 8bit version of Ievan Polka on Soundcloud. Check it out here.

Well, that’s it for this apology post.

Thanks for your support and

The AFF Team

Distribution and Shaders

Dev Blog Posted on Mon, February 20, 2017 07:43AM

Happy Monday everybody,

Our demo has been live for the first week. We are proud of the outcome and proud of how polished the game feels to us. We are still shooting for a summer release date but now we have started thinking of distribution. Now with stream greenlight going away for steam direct, we started wondering if our game should be hosted on steam. We thought long and hard for our target audience and we believe that steam might not be the best place for our target audience. One of our biggest ideas is hosting the game our selves like how Minecraft did back in the day. Of course everything is still in discussion but we wanted to hear from our fans if they have any ideas. How would you like to grab our final copy of the game. We are expecting big things from the final release and we are hoping that you will enjoy our game as much as we enjoyed making it.

As a side note, this week I have been looking into shaders. They are an interesting concept that could enhance our game in an outstanding way (if i can figure out how to get them to work :P). Shaders determine how to render each pixel in our game and we can make some outstanding effects using them. They are commonly used for lighting and shading effects, but I am planning to try use them to enhance the graphics a little in A Finnish Fable. This will be an interesting and fun concept to play with.

DEMO IS LIVE!!!!!!!!

Dev Blog Posted on Mon, February 13, 2017 08:04AM

Hey everybody, Our new Demo is finally live and you can grab it from This will be our final demo release as for now. Mitomon and I will be focusing on the full game and we are shooting for a summer release date. Its been incredibly fun and rewarding working on A Finnish Fable and I really hope you guys enjoy it as much as we enjoyed working on it.

Also, we just got our first article written about us. It was from homeofnerds and they really did a good job talking about our game. This is really exciting. Here is the article.

As always, if you guys have any questions or concerns about the game, or if you guys found any bugs, or even if you wonder how some features were implemented in the game, feel free to reach out.

New demo soon

Dev Blog Posted on Mon, January 30, 2017 10:39AM

It’s been a long time since our last post and we are sorry about that. We have been busy with the new year and a lot of things were changing due us. For example, I just graduated from university and started a new job. Nevertheless, we continue to work on A Finnish Fable and we have been making some great progress. We brought in a new mini boss and a whole new level. We are adding some final touches but a new demo should be out sometime in the coming week or two. We hope you guys had a great start to 2017.

Happy New Year!

Our New Year’s Edition of AFF is up and you can get it here! We added banana mementos for gorillas
that will be missed, squirrels that are ready for the US presidency, and a boss
for a year that was both good and bad. That’s right, use your archery skills
and the new year 2017 to make sure 2016 stays gone!

Getting Back on Track

Dev Blog Posted on Mon, December 19, 2016 04:01PM

Exams are finally done!!!!!!! Time to get back to working on A Finnish Fable. We are hoping to get a lot done this break. We have big plans for this game and Mitomon and I discussed how long do we expect this game will take. We came up with a new release date for A Finnish Fable and that date is April 2017. We are going to hand craft each level and all the bosses so expect some great things. Next week we will have a big update for A Finnish Fable so be ready for it.
