Top Hat Studios and developer artist Molegato today announced that their platforming adventure, Frogun, will launch on PC and consoles this August. The 3D platformer puts players in the shoes of a little girl name Renata who has to rescue her missing parents.
Stuck at base camp by her explorer parents, Renata is left to her own devices. In this case it is her parents latest invention, the Frogun. This invention is an intelligent frog-shaped grappling tool. After Renata’s parents fail to return from their expedition to the Beelzebub ruins, she sets out on a rescue mission with the Frogun.
Gameplay features dozens of levels set across many uniquely themed colorful pixelated worlds. Each location is filled with treasure, perilous hazards, enemies, and challenging bosses. Along the way players will find many collectables, various challenges, other mysterious adventurers, in-game achievements, and unlockable secrets. There notes left by pirates, raiders, and previous explorers in the ruins.
Collection players will find enjoyment in collecting all of the unlockable cosmetics and behind-the-scenes peeks. These rewards are be traded for using collected coins.
After a player fully complete the game, an expert time trials mode is unlocked. This feature provides a set of pro times for players to challenge themselves. Speed runners will enjoy this mode as well as the dedicated bonus speed-running mode. A 2-player duel arena can also be unlocked allowing friends to challenge each other in the arena.
