Playtonic Friends - the publishing arm of the rather popular Yooka-Laylee team - is making early waves as it supports and releases smaller Indie games. It's now confirmed its next partnership, teaming up with development newcomers MegaWobble to bring Lil Gator Game to Switch and PC in early 2022.

As you can see in the trailer above it's a very cute and wholesome game, seemingly with the Lil Gator's objective being to lure an older sibling back into play full of fantasy and imagination. There are some familiar and fun mechanics on show too, and it's an adventure where the focus is on exploration and experimentation.

Under development by brand new indie team MegaWobble, Lil Gator Game is built around the idea of uninterrupted exploration and child-like whimsy with a story not about noble heroes who changed the world or of wicked anti-heroes who learn the error of their ways but of heroes who learn to be better friends without ever losing their heart of gold.

Employ a packed tool-box of toys & abilities to explore a giant play park spread across an island setting as you guide the Lil Gator as he climbs, jumps, glides and flings himself from adventure to adventure, new friend to new friend.

It looks adorable and enjoyable to us. We can expect a demo as part of Steam Next Fest next week, and the game will also appear in the Indie Land event on 25th September.
