The Loveland Frog
Content warning: this game has potentially stressful audio (screeching car tires).
A Myth, or A Legend?
Once a media cycle, the Loveland Frog cryptid makes their appearance to a select few. Though they may be three feet tall, an unusual size for a frog, they are truly a friendly character. However, people find the Frog menacing, and do not understand them. They run away from the Frog, and occasionally attempt to attack them in misguided fear...
It has been three years since the Loveland Frog was last seen, and tonight they have decided to shake things up. They wish to go for a stroll across a busy highway, where many people will be able to see that they really exist. However, due to their isolation from human culture, they do not understand "vehicles", and so do not know the danger they represent...
Now In Video Game Form
This game is a bit spooky, but there are NO jump scares! Headphones are suggested, but not required.
The Loveland Frog is a short game, and takes 2-5 minutes to play. You can control the Frog with the left and right arrow keys, or the A and D keys, to move them left and right, respectively. Your goal is to help them cross the road safely, by guiding them to the other side.
For those playing in the browser, the game has ended when the victory scene is over. In the downloadable form, it will automatically close at this point.
