The Frog Project (Help wanted)


Hello, my name is Paulo and I love this small console, but sadly I dont interact here often.
Recently I started to be involved in gamejams as an artist, making sprites/2D art in general, I don’t have any experience programming. I took part on 2 gamejams soo far (that I submitted a project): Buddy Up Jam: Winter 2022 and Black and White Jam #8↷∞. In both gamejams I was part of a team, but in both we used my games ideas. In the first one i feel that we overscooped alot for a jam game, in the second one i think we did a great job and the game turned out really short and fun.

First gamejam game i work with:CAPY-VIRUS

Second gamejam game i work and the subject of this post: Project Frog

The Concept
arduboy mockup

The idea for the game was pretty simple, it was just a frog that jumps around to destroy robots by pressing their auto-destruction buttons. The most important part of the game is the jump mechanic, because the game would still be fun in a more standard plataforming game world. After the end of the jam i started to think how the game is simple, fun and only uses 2 colours, soo that would be a great game to port to the Arduboy.

Of course that an Arduboy game have much more limitations, I don’t have any idea if this kinda of gameplay is possible yet, but this post is for this reason.

What have I done soo far?

The answer is not much really, I’ve made almost every sprite I think would be used on the game.

What’s this Project?

Basically making a “demake” of the “Project Frog” for the Arduboy. I’m here to ask for help for anyone that feels interested in work on this project, because in the moment I only can do art assets and maybe level design. Soo if you think this an interesting game concept please just join me here :smiley:

Feel free to ask any questions about this.


Really like your designs - the art and game looks great.

There’s some other nice games from the B&W game jam too~
