Frobisher Says Is the Weirdest Vita Game So Far

Posted by James Newton

We have no words

Frobisher Says is one of the most peculiar games we've ever seen. Designed to use every one of the Vita's control inputs, it's a collection of over 50 challenges using more than 20 different art styles, some of which you can see in the frankly bizarre screenshots below.

While the idea of a bizarre mini game compilation might sound a little like Sony's answer to WarioWare, but Ricky Haggett from developer Honeyslug also cites Rhythm Heaven as another big influence:

The main‭ '‬minigames game‭' ‬that influenced us was Rhythm Heaven,‭ ‬which Dick and I are both big fans of.‭ ‬That game definitely informed the flow and atmosphere of Frobisher at the start. I consciously didn't go back and replay WarioWare or the Raving Rabbids games,‭ ‬because I didn't want to be directly influenced by them.

The games in Frobisher are actually more inspired by Frobisher's world‭ ‬--‭ ‬they came from us thinking about the character and what kinds of things he would demand you do,‭ ‬then intersecting these thoughts with the unique opportunities the Vita controls gave us.‭

After browsing the shots below we're very frightened of Frobisher's world.
