A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Hello, traveller, welcome to Hoppity Town!

A town where frogs and other animals have evolved to be as intelligent as humans. Unfortunately, developing human-like intelligence also means they have adopted their tendency to get into trouble... 

But, fear not, traveller! For when things get tricky and bewildering, Detective Gidget's there to help the predicament! 

In fact... she's in one right now! A mysterious thief has appeared in Hoppity Town and started robbing their citizens! Even the frog police force have their hands full! But even with these thieveries, Gidget feels like there's something more to this puzzle. 

Will Gidget be able to solve the case?

Really cute art style and entertaining story!


this is the ultimate comfort game i was so happy when it appeared in hummingbird's crown :')



I'm an enthusiast and creator of the project "Keeper of Time". Specialize in translating visual novels and comics into Russian. I understand if, due to the current terrible situation, you immediately stop reading after this. I'm writing with a proposal to translate ur games into Russian. I don't sell translations and leave all links on authors, I also do not take money from the owners of the original for my work. If you want, I can show you my project list.

u can contact me: keepersoftimerus@gmail.com

HI there, would you like me to translate your game into Esperanto for free? I'm just looking to help the Esperanto community out by getting some more games into the language.


Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I adore this game! It's adorable and well-drawn, and fun and light to play.

That's really sweet of you to say, thanks so much!! ❀️ πŸ’• 


I would totally play the sequel! All of the endings were written really nicely


Thank you so much!! 😊 🌸




This is a really fun game and like the art style it's really cute. 

Thank you so much for your kind words and for making a gameplay of our game!! ❀️ 😊


Really cute game, I enjoyed the art style and cozy vibes. I had a frogtastic time.

Thank you so much!! πŸ₯° We're happy you had a frogsome experience! 🐸❀


finally got around to playing this with my little bro (we had fun doing the voices together), and i can fully  say that this game fills the little frog-shaped hole in my little heart. thank you for this really well made game, i enjoyed playing through the endings! can't wait for part 2, should there be one 😼


Aww that's so sweet!! πŸ’˜πŸ₯° Thank you so much! We're glad to know you and your little bro had fun playing and even did voices for the characters!! 🐸❀🌸

SO CUTE... i want to live in this froggy town

Aww thank you so much!! β˜ΊοΈπŸ’–


This game is SO incredibly adorable and polished. It gives me serious Animal Crossing vibes, in the best way possible. It made the very top of my annual NaNoRenO spotlight post—here's the link if you'd like to check it out!

Congrats on completing the game jam, and on making such a lovely game! :)


Aww that's so sweet of you, thank you so much for your comment and for featuring our game on your blog!! πŸ₯°πŸ’–

We're really happy that you enjoyed it so much!! 🌻😊🌸 Hehe, Animal Crossing is super adorable, it's really flattering to know that our game gave you similar vibes!! ❀🐸


This is so cute I loved everything about it, the meta jokes, the relationships, the art and the investigation mechanisms. The backgrounds were also very pretty and gave a strong small-town-vibe. I'm looking forward to the sequel!


Thank you so much for such a sweet comment!! πŸ˜­πŸ’˜ We're happy to know you liked our game!! 😊🌸

It'll probably be a while until we make a sequel since we'll be working on other projects first, but we're delighted to know that people want to meet our froggies and gecko again!! ☺️πŸ₯°πŸΈ


This is really fun so far! And it looks so good? The music and sound effects are great too. Congratulations!

The only problem I had was that I used only quick save the first time I played the game, and when I opened it again and clicked on "Continue", it was like I hadn't used any saving method at all! I had to start again (thankfully I could skip the lines, but I still had to re-do the investigation and some other stuff).

Thank you so much! We're glad you enjoy playing it! <3

Oh! It seems like you used the quick save which only can be loaded with the quick load button (it's beside the quick save option). Continue will only give you an option to load the save that you did by opening and saving via the journal!

Sorry if you found that confusing ><"


Oh that makes sense! Thanks!

We definitely want to make a sequel sometime but it's probably not going to be anytime soon since we'll be working on other projects first. Thank you for the interest!! 😊

Show post...

94/100 VERY GOOD

Thank you so much!! We're happy to know you enjoyed the game!! <3


This is an extremely cute and well-made game!
The detective gameplay is great, the characters are very likeable, the frog world is fleshed out, and the intrigue of whodunnit is real :) 

Thanks for making this game, congrats on your NaNoReNo submission, eagerly waiting for the continuation ^-^
