Playtonic Friends is publishing Lil Gator Game for PC (via Steam) and Switch with a release set for sometime in 2022, the company has announced.
“We’ve talked a lot this year about what attracts us to new projects and it really boil down to one thing – finding games WE want to play and in a lot of cases wish we’d come up with!” said Gavin Price, CEO, Playtonic Friends “That really couldn’t be more the case with the guys at MegaWobble and the amazing world they’ve created with Lil Gator Game. From the first time we saw a few short gifs online we were so impressed and it just made sense to get in touch with them. Turns out they are fans of all the same great games as us, shared a love of adventure platformers and so we decided to team up.”
Here’s a new trailer:
Here’s a rundown on the game:
The world is big when you’re a lil gator… Good thing it’s also full of friends!
There’s a buddy atop every hill in this open-world, movement-focused adventure and they all seem to need help! Bop cardboard baddies, brave serene hills and forests, and scale sheer rocks that only a kid would dare!
Lil Gator Game is built around the idea of uninterrupted exploration and child-like whimsy with a story not about noble heroes who changed the world or of wicked anti-heroes who learn the error of their ways but of heroes who learn to be better friends without ever losing their heart of gold
Employ a packed tool-box of toys & abilities to explore a giant play park spread across an island setting as you guide the Lil Gator as he climbs, jumps, glides and flings himself from adventure to adventure, new friend to new friend.
- It is cute and has a gator!!!
- Explore a lovingly crafted island, and maybe even make friends along the way, if you can complete their quests… Some quests are small so you can get right back to exploring. Others will take you across the entire park!
- Collect arts & crafts supplies all over the island! Use them to make yourself all kinds of goodies and bring the playground to life!
- Did we mention the gator?
While Playtonic Friends is publishing Lil Gator Game, the publisher has several other games in their current lineup, including BPM: Bullets Per Minute, Demon Turf, and more.
