The Kickstarter project seeks backers without releasing game details.
When ‘Frog Fractions‘ was created a little over a year ago, project lead Jim Crawford wanted to bring out the sense of mystery video games had before endless previews were introduced. With the game’s sequel, Crawford is taking the idea of mystery to the next level.
‘Frog Fractions’ is a computer game spoof of the ‘edutainment’ genre has been very successful. So successful that Crawford is now attempting to produce a sequel that is so veiled he won’t even release the name. Currently being referred to as ‘Frog Fractions 2,’ Crawford has a Kickstarter campaign that has already surpassed it’s $60,000 goal, and still has five days to go.
So far, Crawford has revealed that the new game will have a larger scope than the previous one and multiple levels, and that it will not be called ‘Frog Fractions 2,’ but that’s pretty much all he’s saying. While people don’t know when the game will be released or what it will even be about, Crawford says he does have a plan, and he believes ‘Frog Fraction’ fans trust him.
The ‘Frog Fractions’ brand has a fan base, and clearly it is so strong that customers are willing to buy the next edition without knowing exactly what they are purchasing. While only time will be able to tell how good the game is, the strategy of asking backers to pay for a surprise is truly innovative. Interested backers can click here to make pledges, and maybe then they can let the rest of the world know what the game is actually like.
