Frog Fractions 2 has finally been discovered after a two-year alternate reality game (ARG) involving 23 indie games, mysterious YouTube videos, a letter from a “time-traveler,” and a mystery box that was unlocked on Christmas Eve.
Kotaku reports the sequel can be found in a game called Glittermitten Grove, which released on Dec. 16. The description for Glittermitten Grove describes the game as “a land of enchantment, whimsy, and resource management. Sow the fields with magic seeds, pick berries from the plentiful boughs of our sugar fern trees, and collect sparkles from the resplendent rays of our sun-kissed thicket to help us prepare for the long winter ahead.”
There are two options to access the hidden game. The first way is to dig into the ground using fireworks until a door is found, and the second is to play Glittermitten Grove and access a door in the sky.
The first Frog Fractions, which can be played for free here, became a viral hit once players discovered the game had much more gameplay mechanics than solving simple fractions. Jim Crawford, the developer behind the original, launched a Kickstarter for the sequel in 2014 and pitched it as a game within a game. The game would not be called Frog Fractions 2 either, and Kickstarter backers would receive keys for the game once the game had been discovered.
