Sandbox Silliness: Amazing Frog Hopping Over From Ouya

Amphibian Simulator

The official tourism slogan of Swindon is, as far as I can tell, "For Town Centre Shopping Follow 'Town centre'". I suggest an alternative: "Home Of Amazing Frog?". Question mark and all, it was one of the biggest Ouya launch games, turning the Wiltshire town in a wacky physics sandbox filled with trampolines, cannons, fans, bouncy castles, remote-controlled cars, space rockets, cats, skateboarding pigeons, explosive barrels, blimps, guns, and footballs for split-screen shenanigans. Now it's trying to hop to PC via Steam Greenlight.

This might all sound a bit like That Other Wacky Animal Physics Game, but Amazing Frog? came first. Its playfulness is a mite more directed too, with all the props encouraging players to invent their own games and competitions. I'm awfully keen on that sort of creative play, and not just in video games. Developers Fayju want to add more of that as they bring it to PC:

We want to add more nonsense, more modes, more environments, more characters, more weapons, more missions, more vehicles, more frogs... and we're gonna! We've reached the moon already and we won't stop there, so come on down to Swindon and join the ride!

"Come on down to Swindon and join the ride". Chilling words. Here's the Greenlight trailer, though Fayju also have a big list of YouTubers larking about if you'd prefer that.
