Dazzling hand-animated 90s platformer Guinea Pig Parkour resurfaces

Guinea Pig Parkour

The gorgeously hand-animated platformer Guinea Pig Parkour has resurfaced, only now solo dev Jeff Mumm is finally finishing the game so it can be released.

The game ran a successful Kickstarter campaign a couple years ago to more or less create a fantastic demo and early build for PC (via Steam).

An early access release was teased, but now Mumm is planning a second Kickstarter “to fund the final stretch of development” on the game alongside physical rewards (including a plush) and – console ports.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its new trailer:

Guinea Pig Parkour is a completely hand-drawn 2D platformer with adventure elements, drawing heavy inspiration from ’90s animated cartoons and games. It is animated and developed completely by one artist, Jeff Mumm, and features music and SFX by Fat Bard.

Run, jump, swing, flip, vault, climb, crawl, and parkour through classic platformer inspired levels. Talk to, interact with, help, and annoy a host of funny characters as you progress through a “lost ’90s cartoon episode.”

Each animation in Guinea Pig Parkour is completely hand-drawn, frame-by-frame at 24 frames per second – every single frame a different drawing – to capture the full, fluid quality of traditional animation.
