Frog Climbers is a party game in which you play as rock climbing frogs wrestling up mountains. Use all the tricks in the book to reach the top first, for victory… and fame. Easy to pick up but hard to master, the game relies heavily on skills and ragdoll physics to get accustomed to in order to be the better frog.
Frog Climbers started as a student project during a production course in March 2015 at Uppsala University, Campus Gotland. During two months the team developed a prototype of the game which was then showcased at the Gotland Game Conference, Originally the game was played with an arcade table where two joysticks controlled the arms of a frog. There the game went on to win the Best First Year Project and the Pwnage Award (Best on showfloor).
After the conference there was some polishing done before submitting the game to Swedish Game Awards. The game got nominated for Game of the Year and Best execution in Design. It won both Best execution in Design as well as the Gamers Choice Award. Frog Climbers was also nominated for Best Student Project at the Unity Awards aswell as Sense of Wonder Night at Tokyo Game Show.
Due to all the positive feedback we decided to keep developing the game and aim for a release. We have continued to work on the game alongside our studies since then and after a year and a half of production the game is finished! Exciting!
