As the developer of Frog Fractions and Frog Fractions 2 I can confirm that this is in fact Frog Fractions 2.

Ninja Pig Studio's seems to be an actual developer that has had a facebook page since 2011 and a twitter account since 2009. Seems unlikely to be Frog Fractions 2.

Unless Twinbeard paid for Ninja Pig to be involved in order to effectively disguise Frog Fractions 2.

You'll find me in a dirty motel with poor lighting tying yarn between all the evidence trying to make sense of it all.

who says frog fractions 2 has to be a game?

Maybe frog fractions 2 is a real life Robocop

The hottest garbage.

But it might be in disguise...

Has anyone thought that there might be an influx of shitty indie games actually selling because people it might think it's Frog Fractions 2?

I feel like this joke was funny for almost the seven and half minutes it took me to finish the (completely FREE) Game Of The Year 420.

Why anyone would pay money for a runner whose entire purpose for existing is to reuse all the same jokes is beyond me.

If it does turn out to be something more I would be very surprised.

Fuck this Frog Factions 2 business, what's up with this biting on GAME OF THE YEAR: 420BLAZEIT. The idea of this coming after 420BLAZEIT makes me sad.

EDIT:

Meme Run is a comedy game created by Jordan and Garrett Schuetz. Inspired by the Montage Parody Subreddit, Ninja Pig Studios developed this game to add a new twist on the meme culture. Anyone who has seen montage paradies will find this game extremely entertainingsince it's a first of its kind game.

Shameless.

@bacongames: Yeah. I'm curious what the timeline is there. That being said, the similarities may just be due to both drawing inspiration from this "Montage Parody" subreddit...a place that I never intend to visit.

To be fair 420BLAZEIT was a 7DFPS game so this POS was probably in development long before 420.

That's why I think 420BLAZEIT works, it's a game jam game that was a really good joke for that amount of time put into it. Helps that 420BLAZEIT has more depth to the joke concerning video games anyway whereas this seems like the game is irrelevant to the joke.

As my searches would confirm you're probably right. Intentional or not, Meme Run's timing completely kills any value this might have had. Whatever, the game that matters won out in the end among people who follow this shit more closely and know what a 7DFPS is.

This reminds me of a less interesting version of 420blazeit Gameoftheyear. It was played on Unprofessional Fridays a little while back and it uses the same music, the same memes, the same jokes, only it looks to play better and its free.

Can't be. Frog Fractions 2 is coming to PC and then later Linux and Mac.

Oh god, that's my favorite idea now. I'm going to go release something on early access with the only selling point being "Might be Frog Fractions 2."

Sometimes you get a clear example of "trying too hard". This is one of those times.

Remember when comedy required people to write their own jokes and not literally copy and paste shit they saw on the internet?

@m3ds334: That could be considered misleading advertising. Just say "not frog fractions 2". You're telling the truth, but people will still think it might be frog fractions 2.

I thought that the trailer was pretty funny, but the game itself looks unplayable. At least GAME OF THE YEAR: 420 BLAZEIT vs xxXilluminatiXxx [wow/10 #rekt edition] - Montage Parody The Game was cohesive and very much enjoyable from a mechanics standpoint. This game looks as if all of the effort was put into the video, and not into the game itself.

Yeah, GOTY 420 BLAZE IT was a much higher level of polish. And it was actually a parody, where I get the feeling this might be serious.

Don't think of it as getting old. Think of it as transcending immaturity and being able to enjoy things outside of what others want to portray as popular.
