Any and all proceeds from this demo will go to:

 K9s For Warriors

A web version is free to play in-browser here on, but for a $1.00 (or more) donation, you can download your very own PC (Windows) optimized copy of FOOL'S GOLD (Demo) with higher performance.

As a veteran and an advocate for mental health awareness, this organization is one I strongly support. It means the world to me to be able to give back to such a cause through video game development, even in a small way.


Welcome to FOOL'S GOLD (Demo)!

Help Kenny Goldinski find and mine as much REAL GOLD as possible before time runs out! Watch out that it's not just FOOL'S GOLD instead.

  • Mine: Mouse Click On "Gold" 
  • Equip Torch/Equip Pickaxe(Toggle):  Mouse Click on Kenny's Backpack

  • Pickaxe MUST Be Equipped

I plan to use delightful and creative software solutions to bring our world together through the joy of gaming. I've been keeping a devlog blog while building this project, with the hopes it may help or inspire others to follow their own passion for game dev. 

I hope you enjoy playing my first official video game (demo)! Be sure to keep your eye out for more projects to come!

This is the finalized Demo of FOOL'S GOLD. The MVP version of this game was created during my first Game Jam (Brackeys Game Jam 2022.1). Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to upload that version during the jam, due to a metadata corruption issue. However, I'm thrilled to finally be able to share my first official indie game (demo) with the world!
