previous :

We just launched Frog Box , a free toy onto the App Store. It came from a prototype we built while working on a larger game we are developing called Dead Frog Golf.
Frog Box is a simple toy, we are looking to enhance it as we move along with the larger game. At the moment you can simple drag and tumble a frog and a lunch box around a box, a similar control system to FAYJU Ball. heres the vid:

its available in the App Store here

This is a free app , it is just an experiment that we thought we would share. It is currently in the entertainment section and we have been thinking up ways to make it more game like would be great to hear any thoughts or ideas.

golf, we're working on that. In the update to frogbox Its just a simple question of throwing the rag doll around a space. In a more considered way the dead frog golf would use a throwing mechanism and a par system to throw the rag doll frog to the desired "hole" or location. In the true sense of golf ... no it will not be golf but a more abstracted sense of golf crazy ragdoll golf.
We've had some thoughts on different shaped frogs for different purposes, round ones that roll, sticky ones that help you get further by sticking to walls. Maybe selecting different types of frog for different purposes as you would different clubs.
Its in development, it should be fun and thats the main objective. We're working on a few things but we're looking at dead frog golf being in first release sept/oct time, frog box is a way of sharing that development.
