Lil Gator Game announced for Nintendo Switch, to be released next year

Playtonic Friends have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Lil Gator Game, a wholesome exploration game developed by MegaWobble. You get to play as a peppy lil’ gator who’s yearning to go on an adventure and makes lots of friends. It will be released sometime next year.

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots:

Under development by brand new indie team MegaWobble, Lil Gator Game is built around the idea of uninterrupted exploration and child-like whimsy with a story not about noble heroes who changed the world or of wicked anti-heroes who learn the error of their ways but of heroes who learn to be better friends without ever losing their heart of gold.

Employ a packed tool-box of toys & abilities to explore a giant play park spread across an island setting as you guide the Lil Gator as he climbs, jumps, glides and flings himself from adventure to adventure, new friend to new friend.

Born from the team’s shared experience as gamers, not purely as developers, LiL Gator Game focuses on a wholesome, enjoyable experience built around the very concepts of friendship and helping each other.

The world is big when you’re a lil gator… Good thing it’s also full of friends! There’s a buddy atop every hill in this open-world, movement-focused adventure and they all seem to need help! Bop cardboard baddies, brave serene hills and forests, and scale sheer rocks that only a kid would dare!

  • It is cute and has a gator!!!
  • Explore a lovingly crafted island, and maybe even make friends along the way, if you can complete their quests… Some quests are small so you can get right back to exploring. Others will take you across the entire park!
  • Collect arts & crafts supplies all over the island! Use them to make yourself all kinds of goodies and bring the playground to life!
  • Did we mention the gator?

Lil Gator Game (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet, but is slated for a 2022 release in Europe and North America.
