Frog Fractions 2 holds a Mass Effect easter egg


What the hell?

Frog Fractions 2 is a game that recently launched after being shrouded in mystery for years. Along with some crazy ARG that revealed the existence of the title, the game also has some outlandish secrets for players to solve. One of the less-hidden extras is the ability to import your Mass Effect 2 save into Frog Fractions 2. I'm sure Commander Shepard has to solve some arithmetic problems while making the jump to warp drive, or something.

While many initially thought this was a joke placed in the game for idiosyncratic purposes, it turns out that isn't the case. Polygon asked developer Jim Crawford and he responded by saying that a certain puzzle later in the game requires the use of multiple Mass Effect 2 save files. While that sounds really cool, I'm wondering why he chose to go for the sequel instead of the original or even 3. I also wonder if the console versions can somehow import their saves, though I doubt that.

There are also a bunch of other mini-games included in Frog Fractions 2, like a text-based adventure title that takes place with Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, a Flappy Bird-style clicker game, and a shaving simulator featuring President Barack Obama. That certainly sounds off-kilter.
