Can you handle the Troof?
The creative minds at Pixeljam Games are gearing up for the Steam re-release of their challenging “potatosophical” platformer, Potatoman Seeks the Troof on December 3. It’s been a while since a game trailer had me chuckling as hard as this one. Have a look, it’s pretty damn amazing.
This version of Potatoman will feature a new rendering engine, more vibrant colors, a true fullscreen mode, controller support, and Steam achievements. Also, there’s this description of the game: “In a world where the Troof is an unanswered question, Potatoman quests through the riddle. Through desert wastelands, thick forests, and dystopian cities: nothing is what it seems. With only his wits, his jump, and a question, Potatoman must potato forth through quirky and challenging platforming puzzles!”
When they say challenging, they’re really not screwing around. I died so many times last night seeking my own Troof. Potatoman is very old-school in its unforgiving platforming, but the delightful soundtrack and quirky sense of humor made the experience well worth my time. It’s pretty great.
Also, if you missed it before, our very own Editor-In-Chief Jonathan Holmes interviewed Rich Grillotti and Miles Tillman from Pixeljam last year. Have a look at all of them being awesome!
