death by flower arrangement is a 2D top-down shooter where you frolic among the flowers as a florist named Flanigan, keeping them at bay with your AK-47, and scattering their petals on the grassy floor in an arrangement of vibrant color.

Created for the Pippin Barr 'GAME IDEA' Game Jam.

Install instructions

There shouldn't be any further installation worries - just unpack and enjoy!

The screenshot functionality acts odd on the desktop version. You may want to press spacebar a few times until it realizes it should spit out a PNG file labelled "#dbfa photo".
