This Frog Detective Game is Great Small-Scale Comedy


The Haunted Island: A Frog Detective Game is really adorable. It’s also very funny. It didn’t have me guffawing at gags or snorting at snarky remarks, no, it employs a sweeter kind of humor than you typically find in games, depending more on an appreciation of the absurd and perfect comic timing.

It’s hard to describe just how charming and funny the writing in this is without seeing it in motion. Katbamkapow and Waypoint contributor Jack de Quidt played through the beginning recently which totally sold me.


This is one of my favourite streams of the game yet! Almost missed it too, thanks.


If only the protagonist were a lizard instead of a frog so small-scale could have been a sweet pun.
