Heya, faithful Indie Wonderland readers. This week I’m reviewing a game called Sproggiwood, brainchild of Freehold Games. I am doing this because the game is called Sproggiwood. That’s my entire reason, and it’s a good one.
You might try to argue that I could be interested in Sproggiwood because its Steam page promises a neat combination of roguelike dungeon combat and persistent upgrading, the latter of which is incarnated in a cute voxel-art village that supposedly grows as you adventure. These are good points all, but I’m going to counter by saying Sproggiwood. Guys, it’s a really good work. Say it out loud. Sproggiwood. Really let it roll off the tongue. Sproggiwood. The other stuff helps too, I’m not gonna lie, but if this game’d been called something like The Adventures Of Bob, I probably wouldn’t have…
Actually, that’s a lie, I would 100% play The Adventures Of Bob and everyone here knows that I would. But if that game even exist, and as I write I find myself hoping that it does, it’ll have to wait until this. This week’s Indie Wonderland is 100% Sproggiwood, 100% of the time.
