LiL Gator Game Waddles Towards Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows PC as it Joins Publisher’s Growing Line Up
Derby, UK, 21st September 2021: With the launch of their first publishing project, BPM: Bullets Per Minute (Xbox One / PS4) just around the corner, Playtonic Friends decided the time was right to lift the lid on their next partnership.
Under development by brand new indie team MegaWobble, 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.
“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.”
Born from the team’s shared experience as gamers, not purely as developers, LiL Gator Game focuses on a wholesome, enjoyable experience built around the very concepts of friendship and helping each other.
Look out for Lil Gator Game during the Indie Land event this Saturday, 25th September, and it will also be popping up in the Steam Next Fest starting at the end of next week.
