  • Each level represents a personal theme, conveyed through the level composition, challenges and soundscape and is narratively structured around a poetic structure.
  • In Japanese culture the frog is seen as a symbol of luck and throughout the progression of the game each step reflects the small steps and jumps we as humans do to progress in our lives, ambitions and dreams.
  • The soundscape is generated based on the interactions of the player.
  • It offers 40 stages with different themes and associated obstacles to overcome. Demo has 15 stages.

Game Mechanic

  • While the player only controls the jump of the frog (direction, strength and time), the dynamism of the levels creates a number of varieties and challenges.
  • Dynamism is created through the fact that landing on an object creates ripples, which affects other elements in the level based on their characteristics.
  • Ripples are created not only by the player, but by any other frogs in the level, similar to the effects other people have in one’s environment.

Download the free demo at itch.io and consider supporting the game's Steam Greenlight campaign.
And feel free to provide any feedback you might have :)
