Play OverviewPlay Overview

Time on Frog Island (2022) is a world building adventure set on an island of anthropomorphised frogs where you solve puzzles to survive and thrive on an island after a shipwreck. You explore at your own pace and solve sticky situations for the colourful locals as you trade your way to fixing your ship.

Play initially involves exploring the island to meet everyone and understand what they need from the sounds and symbols they use to communicate. You then slowly unravel this spaghetti network of trades, getting the right items the people that need them. To do this often involves solving puzzles, finding hidden treasures and talking to the right frogs.

As you progress you discover not only new people and places, but things to do. You can find new items by fishing and farming. You can concoct simple brews that give you new ways to get around and access the more distant and hard to reach parts of the island.

The result is an endearing game that could have been pulled from the pages of a story book. But also, it's an inviting tangle of wants and needs to straighten out. Whether you make this you book at bedtime game or just a way to relax after a busy day, it's a game that's had love and attention poured into it.

Each object you pick up could end up being the key to something bigg

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 3 for occasional very mild violence in a comical or abstract context. There are a few instances in which the player can be hit by another character who holds a sword. The player's character doesn't really react to this and the screen quickly fades to black, without any detail of harm or injury. The screen also fades to black when he walks too far out into the ocean or falls off a cliff, with no visuals of harm occurring, after which the player simply wakes up on the beach again. The introduction to the game shows the protagonist on a boat surrounded by a dark thunderstorm. A character is shown becoming sick, after which his gravestone is seen.

The game does include a sailor with a pipe, but this is a liquorice pipe (that does emit smoke).

Skill Level
