  • Each level is representing a personal theme, which is 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.

  • 40 stages with different themes and associated obstacles to overcome.

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 objects 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.
