William Pugh, the creator behind the extensively named Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger and the Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist and one half of The Stanley Parable, has just released his next free-to-play game at his studio Crows Crows Crows. It’s made in Twine, and it lets you play as a frog.
The Temple of No is a text-based adventure game revolving around worldwide adventure and hunting for treasure. As either a man, woman or a one-eyed frog (an interesting story in itself), players are plunged into a world riddled with discernible character, multiple choices and unquestionable weirdness.
Whilst its hand-drawn visual style and sense of character sets the game apart from its previous titles, The Temple of No is similarly stuffed with the recognisable fourth-wall breakages and awareness of The Stanley Parable and Dr. Langeskov. Given its short length, it’s also likely a game that’ll need to be played several times in order to get the complete experience.
Whilst the game is written and voiced by Pugh, its artwork and design are courtesy of Dominik Johann, who also worked on Dr. Langeskov.
As for Crows Crows Crows’ next big release, Pugh told Eurogamer that the studio has been working on a new game for “almost two years now” and that fans can expect to hear news of the game ‘very soon.’
