Frogreign Swinging

Frogreign: Gameplay, Release Date, and Pricing Details

Amidst the high-octane thrillers and quirky indies at the SXSW Sydney 2023 Gaming Festival, a unique title captured our attention: Frogreign.

We were able to get our hands on this upcoming 2D metroidvania, where we immersed ourselves in its beautiful yet punishing world. As we navigated the mysterious kingdom, each level unveiled layers of intricate details, reflecting the passion and commitment of the developers at Arkanpixel.

What is Frogreign?

The kingdom of Callidryas Sultanate beckons, a land where legends state spirits breathed life into its once-desolate terrain. But as players will soon find out, not all is well. The land now grapples with encroaching darkness as a malicious cult rises, the royal family has disappeared, and the very spirits who were guardians seem to have forsaken the land.

You play as Rill, a banished young prince, and with the guide of Lumi, a mystical wisp sent by the spirits, players will traverse this endangered kingdom, uncovering secrets, confronting enemies, and attempting to restore the legacy of the royal lineage.

Here is what you can expect from Frogreign:

  • Navigate the varied terrains of your ancestral home, piecing together a conspiracy against your overthrown family.
  • Employ Rill’s acrobatics to swing, dive, and dash across over 10 unique zones.
  • Master the art of moving through land, air, and water.
  • Delve into the intricate dungeon temple puzzles that will put your skills to the test.
  • Engage in intense sword fights and harness Rill and Lumi’s combined powers to outwit formidable foes.
  • Dive into a world of exquisite pixel art, animated frame by frame.
  • Immerse yourself into Frogreign with the SNES-inspired musical score by Alejandro Pérez Heinze, known for their work in Kena: Bridge of Spirits.
