Get hype for one of the hottest games to grace your PC to arrive on Steam in 2020. Forget about Cyberpunk 2077. Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord? More like Bannerbored. The real gamers are ready for the hottest revived IP that's coming to a digital retailer near you: Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition.

Okay, okay, enough with the silliness. Frog Fractions is a game that, at its face, looks like an old-school educational game. In reality, it's a massive send-up of the educational games many of us grew up with, straying into increasingly-ridiculous territory. Seriously, just look at a portion of the game's description from its Wikipedia article:

 

Frog Fractions begins with a frog sitting on a lily pad. The player controls the frog, and must use its tongue to attack insects, while collecting and protecting fruit. The game later introduces upgrades that the player may purchase, including lock-on targeting, a cybernetic brain, and a flying dragon. When the player collects enough fruit, they can buy a warp drive, which lets them ride their dragon through an asteroid field to Bug Mars, where the player then battles an alien robot squid.

Originally debuting in 2012 (many years after I was out of school, curses), Frog Fractions later received a sequel which is buried as an easter egg in the premium game Glittermitten Grove. Now, Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition has been announced and is heading to Steam as a proper, standalone game this year.
