Frog Finder is an educational puzzle game, with a series of abstract puzzles about finding the frog hidden in a grid.
I think I had an expectation going in that it was going to be somehow subversive, somehow… Frog Fractiony? But that’s not it. If anything, it’s anti-subversive, like it has a kind of charming earnestness, which is something I guess you get in kids games. It’s adorable! It made me feel like a toddler.
It’s hard to describe – it manages to capture a nostalgia I didn’t know I had, for these alien-feeling early edutainment games that evoke a sense of wonder and joy.
