Frog Fractions 2 is a Thing That Exists and Won’t Be Called Frog Fractions 2

Making a weird game that harkens back to the days of yore, before the internet completely ruined all of gaming’s mystique forever, is a colossally difficult task — most games completely fail at doing so and look kind of silly in the process — but every so often, a game like Frog Fractions or Fez comes along and completely shatters EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT VIDEO GAMES.

If you haven’t played Frog Fractions, I suggest you play it, now. As in RIGHT NOW. It’s free, doesn’t require a download, and takes about an hour to complete, so go hop on it! http://twinbeard.com/frog-fractions

Look: I’m sorry about the frog pun. Can we still be friends? Because I really wanna talk to you about Frog Fractions 2. It’s on Kickstarter!

The first game was somehow a completely surprising, totally ridiculous thing that should have never worked but absolutely did. Its creator, Jim Crawford, even acknowledges that this is the case, saying “Frog Fractions was lightning in a bottle and I will not be able to be anyone’s first time the second time around.”

La première partie: the first piece of the plan, is to get his game funded. He’s asking for $60,000, and it’s currently sitting at just under $30,000. The page just went up two days ago, so I’m pretty sure he’ll make it.

la deuxième partie: he then plans to make Frog Fractions 2, call it something totally different, tell nobody what it is, and wait for people to figure it out. This is referred to as “The Jig*.” It’s explained as such (taken from the Kickstarter): “Since I am not going to announce the release of the game, getting a download code at release would be a spoiler. However, once the story is out there (e.g. once you start to see articles in the enthusiast press about it) then the download codes will go out. If you figure out Frog Fractions 2’s secret identity before The Jig is Up, send me an email and I’ll give you a code immediately.”

I can’t even begin to describe how incredibly excited I am that this is a thing that’s happening.

And seriously: GO PLAY FROG FRACTIONS. I LINKED IT ABOVE, DINGUS.
