The Mystery of Skull Island

A couple months ago I took part in Teacart 1K. It was a game jam in which all entries share the same save format, so you can save in one game and load in another, and it will reinterpret the game state in a hopefully amusing fashion. The organizers put together a pack containing every game with a Windows build, so you can check them out together.

My team made a game called “The Mystery of Skull Island.” It is a dating sim in which you play a UN-functionary trying to seduce a Bond villain. It’s pretty good! If you don’t want to grab the whole pack, you can grab my game a la carte instead.

I’ll be taking part in the Indie Games for Good marathon this weekend. It’s a livestreamed indie game marathon for charity.

I’ll be onstream sporadically throughout the event, but notably there is specifically the “Frog Fractions 2 hour” at 10pm Saturday, and at 11pm they’ll be hosting a 3-hour game jam that viewers can participate in.

A Letter


I got an email last week that is my favorite piece of Frog-related fan mail. Other Frog-related fans, it’s time to step up your game!

I asked for permission to reproduce it here:

From: Nirojan
Subject: Frogs

Your game Frog Fractions was pretty cool, but you probably already know that. I enjoyed it.

Then I was looking through your games and saw you make Frog Infarctions. My interest was piqued. I posted it on reddit. (http://www.reddit.com/r/WebGames/comments/1jge25/frog_infarctions_from_the_creator_of_frog_factions/). You probably know what reddit is. Many people were disappointed. They said Frog Infarctions was a bad sequel. I tried to tell them it wasn’t a sequel, and that it was made in 0 hours, but they wouldn’t listen. Nevertheless, my post got 65 upvotes and got somewhere high on the front page of /r/WebGames.

Then, a few days later, I showed my friend Frog Fractions. He didn’t really like it, and he got so bored he quit before he even got to the frog porn part. However, after I showed him Frog Infarctions, he was in love. We took turns to see who got the best score. At first, we would only get 10 or 15. I saw someone on reddit say they got 59. That must have been a lie. Nobody can get that high of a score. We kept playing. We played every day. I would come over, we would play Frog Infarctions, and then I left. Slowly, our scores got better. First we would get the odd score of 25 or so. Then we’d easily get into the 30s. These days getting 40 isn’t too unheard of. The best score I’ve ever gotten is 62. I didn’t think it would happen, but it did. I have proof too.

Never have I gotten a better score than 62 in Frog Infarctions. I hope that if I train hard enough, I can join the Frog Infarctions WorldWide Championships and get a score of over 100.

I don’t really know why I told you this. But I like Frog Infarctions. Bye.
