The weapon is a frog in Frogun, a game about a frog that is both a weapon and your best friend

Renata’s parents, both eminent explorers, have disappeared in the Beelzebub Ruins, and after waiting three days, she decides to set out on her own to find them. To help her along the way, she brings her parents’ latest invention: the Frogun!

Frogun is an old exploration platformer inspired by PlayStation and N64 era games. Players will explore colorful, pixelated ruins, rendered “in a modern representation of the low-poly aesthetic”, each filled with levers, buttons, enemies, traps, secrets and collectibles.

Central to your travels is your friendly Frogun, an amphibious weapon (those sticky tongues are incredibly versatile) that will help you navigate these strange ruins, find shortcuts and secrets, and discover “an extra layer of knowledge” in hidden exploration notes.

The frog – i.e. the Frogun – is also quite intelligent and will share thoughts and let you know about possible future challenges. He’s a useful friend to have in a dangerous place like this.

We haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but Frogun is undeniably cute and really looks ready to nail the N64-era vibe. We should get a better look soon: a release date hasn’t been set, but it’s slated to arrive sometime this summer. Steam (opens in new tab).
