Frogatto & Friends, or simply Frogatto, is a platformer game, with adventure-elements, designed by a core team of the developers who wrote Battle for Wesnoth, and first released in July 2010. In Frogatto, the player helps frogatto save his friends from trouble.
Frogatto & Friends is available without charge for a variety of computer operating systems, and in the iPhone App Store for $2.99. The most current version of the game, 1.0.1, was released on August 21, 2010.
In contrast to their previous project, Battle for Wesnoth, the frogatto team did development as a small, centralized team, with the intention of building a solid engine and a game to showcase that engine, before trying to build a community around the game. Both the source code and the game have been publicly available since r125 of their source repository, but they did not attempt to build a community around the game until after reaching 1.0. It is intended by the developers that the source code of the game be used to help make other open-source games.
