Just yesterday, the gaming world received the gift of Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition. It’s free on Steam, and brings a 4K remaster of the 2012 browser game to modern machines. However, it appears that developer and creator Jim Crawford has more tricks up his sleeves. Included with Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition is an $8 USD Hop’s Iconic Cap DLC, which many probably first assume to be just a silly cosmetic addition. That said, if you know the history behind the series, you might realize that there’s more to it than just a nice accessory for the beloved gaming frog. The DLC is actually Frog Fractions 3 (or 4, more on that later), a whole other game that is found in Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition.
Once the DLC is purchased, the game’s menu screen presents a toggle option. When the toggle option is off, Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition plays like the remastered version of the original. However, once the toggle option is on, Hop’s beanie opens up a whole new world to players. It’s something that fans really should experience first-hand. Twinbeard has done it again.
The colorful history of Frog Fractions
Fans of this bizarre, but charming series, may realize that this is actually Frog Fractions 4. Back when players were searching for the sequel to the first game, the alternate reality game that set everything off was actually Frog Fractions 2. That led to a game called Glittermitten Grove, which was actually where players could play Frog Fractions 3. Put it all together, and Hop’s Iconic Cap DLC is actially Frog Fractions 4. Talk about twists and turns.
This discovery will no doubt thrill every Frog Fractions fan. To further commemorate it, Crawford has also given the community something to look forward to. The Frog Fractions Cinematic Universe bundle is now on Steam. It contains Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition, Glittermitten Grove, and Hop’s Iconic Cap. The bundled content is priced at a discounted rate, of course. Now, everyone can enjoy the beauty of these games. Furthermore, the search for the next game begins.
