Froggy is the working title of the very first computer game
Sweatbox Software when the company had just started in
1994. The task was to make a
small game as a commercial for
Hewlett Packard printers with the title Kiss the Frog.
The rest was up to us, and this is what we came up with.
The frog jumps around the bush while the
beautiful princess is sending her kisses at him. If she hits
him you join a contest with the grand price of a HP color
printer, and if she doesn't - well, you do anyway.
Shortly after finishing Kiss the Frog we were asked to
make a christmas version which
included a snowman. Except from
programming the snowball, this was just a conversion
graphics. This game was run in computer shops selling HP printers
Denmark, December 1994.
The frog jumps around the ice fortress, while the snowman
throws snowballs at him.
