About Luckshot Games:

Hey, Chris here. I started Luckshot Games back in 2015 to make innovative, high quality games filled to the brim with character and charm. Our first release Sausage Sports Club, a physics game about floppy animals playing sports, came out in 2018 on Switch and Steam.

Now that we’ve got the game making part down, we’re building a sustainable process that puts people first.

Our next project is Big Hops, a froggy platformer about deep locomotion and emergent systems. It’s still needs some time in the oven, but stay tuned.

About Big Hops:

Big Hops is a froggy platformer about deep locomotion and emergent systems!

Meet Hop! He’s a small frog in a big world who’s excited to explore by climbing, jumping, flipping, wall running, tongue grappling, and much more. As you explore the world of Big Hops you’ll meet new characters, build unique gadgets, and discover surprising item interactions.
