Frog Fractions 2 hatches from Glittermitten Grove

Is this Frog Fractions 2? Finally, yes

The elusive Frog Fractions 2 snuck out while over the RPS Crimble holiday, hidden inside a colourful game about building a faerie village and locked away behind a sprawling ARG. Frog Fractions 2 could never be as surprising as the first game, given that y'know we now have heard of Frog Fractions, but it seems to have made a fair go of replacing surprise with epicness. Epicity? Epicicity? That thing. Once again, FF leaps wildly between genres on a wild adventure hidden within something innocuous. This time, your way in is to buy the sparkly-named Glittermitten Grove [official site].

Glittermitten Grove is itself a game about faeries. Your official blurb:

"Ahoy, a-hey, o loddi-doddi day, fair traveller and welcome to Glittermitten Grove! Here you will find a land of enchantment, whimsy, and resource management. Sow the fields with magic seeds, pick berries from the plentiful boughs of our sugar fern trees, and collect sparkles from the resplendent rays of our sun-kissed thicket to help us prepare for the long winter ahead. Come join us in our faerieland, full of strange adventure!"

But OH there are SECRET THINGS. It jaunts merrily across all sorts of genres and weird minigames and look, that's just the basic Frog Fractions pitch and I'll not say more, beyond a notice that you might want to dig up a Mass Effect 2 save file.

If you want in, Glittermitten Grove is £14.99/19,99€/$19.99 on Steam.

Glittermitten had actually been released for over a week, sitting innocently on Steam, before Frog Fractions 2 was revealed. The release was the end of a ARG with a year-and-a-half of twists and turns, ultimately solved by inserting a key found in an escape room into a red button someone received after solving a chain of online puzzles and telling The Internet their address. Check out this Waypoint article for more on the ARG.

Or maybe you simply want to build a faerie village in Glittermitten Grove:
