With its cute design and bright colors, Frogun is based on a very special concept: the heroine can handle a frog gun whose tongue allows her to cling to a wall. And it will take at least that to complete the levels, filled with traps and opponents. Without forgetting the secrets that there are also to be discovered. There even seems to be a small scenario: “Renata’s parents are world-renowned explorers, archaeologists and inventors (…) For three whole days, Renata waits: if they haven’t come back yet, he Something must have happened to them!” can we read on the Steam page.

Before We Leave
Before We Leave proposes to develop its society quietly, to exchange with other planets and to constitute a happy solar system. The title plants its frame following an apocalypse that we imagine nuclear. Humanity has holed up underground to survive but has now chosen to resurface and make a new start and why not set out to conquer space. It will therefore be for the player to manage its resources, the happiness of its inhabitants, to shape a long chain of production and, of course, to explore the surroundings in search of knowledge.
