Forbes Interview!

We got interviewed by Forbes! There is a lot of info in the article about who we are as people and how we conceptualized Little Bug.

It's very well written and definitely worth a read if you want to know more about our studio and some behind the scenes stuff about the game.

What's Next: invisapillars, gushing and more

The Gush
It's been a month since Little Bug entered the world. Our community has been small, but you all have been so supportive, we truly appreciate you so much. We put every inch of our being into this game, so to see those emotions reflected on your faces as a you play our baby is beyond fulfilling.

What's Next
We are on a brief vacation in baja mexico where we designed much of the game's art, but we have been compiling a list of changes and bugs to fix. It's not a long list, but we do plan on addressing a few things when we get back:

Falling Thru Colliders
We initially thought we patched this a few days after launch, but it looks like it's still happening occasionally.This sucks, we are sorry. We are getting closer to the problem (which seems to be physics based) and we want to get it fixed as fast as you do. Sit tight, we are working on it.

The invisapillar
There's a bug that causes the collectable caterpillar to sometimes be invisible when you add it to the lunch box. Since it doesn't break the game, we are considering making it part of the lore. We are absolutely open to suggestions.

We are here for ya

“Little Bug definitely is setting the bar on how much more interesting indie games can be, especially when it comes to gathering lore and stories...”
8/10 – IGN

“This dreamy little platformer is far more than it seems at first glance. It's a story about intergenerational trauma, magic, fungi, and healing, all told through the eyes of a little black girl on a journey between worlds.”
Forbes

About This Game


Get Nyah Home: Nyah is walking home from school when she's suddenly cast into an uncanny world where dangerous spirits linger restlessly in bottomless canyons and moonlit deserts. Play as Nyah and her spirit light in tandem as you immerse yourself in a foreboding, atmospheric environment. Will Nyah use her new found light to find her way home or will she lose her way among the many dangers that roam in the moonlight?

Core Features
  • Coordinate 2 playable characters who share a physics-based swinging mechanic in real time.
  • Explore nooks and crannies to discover hidden collectibles.
  • Engage with a spirit cat named Roadkill and other creepy/cute characters.
  • Play the story to unlock bonus levels featuring higher level gameplay challenges.
  • Discover themes and symbols tucked into collectibles, environment and gameplay.
  • Automatic saving paired with generous checkpoints lets you play at your own pace.
  • Great for both speed running and casual play.
  • Calming, yet catchy soundtrack.

Simple Controls, Complex Gameplay: Nyah can walk on the ground and collect treasures while her light can fly in any direction - you control them both at the same time. Forming a telekinetic beam between them, you’ll create a powerful connection that can swing Nyah to new heights, destroy barriers, thwart spirits and light the way to secret locations. Your coordination with these two characters is key, as disembodied spirits can appear without warning and hurt Nyah or her light. You’ll learn their unique play style intuitively and quickly as fresh challenges emerge to test you in the wilderness.

Discover Dozens of Unique Items: Collect dozens of unique treasures in Nyah's lunchbox that reveal memories from Nyah’s past and rearrange them however you like. Decide which items to keep with you on your journey and which to offer to the mysterious spirit cat Roadkill, who can unlock secret challenge levels with special items.


About Nyah: Nyah is a curious 8-year-old who loves exploring nature and studying life science. She shares treasures from her explorations with her teacher, Ms. Bisbee. Nyah lives with her single mom and baby sister, Isa, but Mom seems tired and different from how she used to be. Sometimes Nyah stays with her grandma who feeds Nyah's imagination with her quirky wisdom, but maybe grandma’s stories have more truth than Nyah ever could have believed.

Get the original soundtrack!


Little Bug was funded on Fig with the support of 315 backers.
