Description

Potatoman Logo 1

In a world where the Troof is an unanswered question, Potatoman quests through the riddle. Through desert wastelands, thick forests, and dystopian cities: nothing is what it seems. With only his wits, his jump, and a question, Potatoman must potato forth through quirky and challenging platforming puzzles!

Jump, run, and engage in humorous potatosophical debate as your avatar dies a thousand deaths… encounter spud-shredding baddies and quick platformer pacing in this new Pixeljam release. Don’t end up a potato pancake… go forward and seek the Troof!

Potatoman will delight, surprise, and challenge you. I had so much fun playing through his little adventure, and I know I’ll replay it many times in the future. And the ending is amazing! Definitely play all the way to the end.

-James Kochalka, American Elf

Potatoman is an awesome bite-sized platformer that is as fun as it is, well, insane.

-Northernlion, Youtube

Good, addictive fun, with a nice balance between level-memorization and hand-eye coordination.

-Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing

…the conclusion is beautiful in its use of game mechanics to make the player feel a loss of ability. By making old obstacles suddenly seem impossible, it shows the player what it feels like to surrender oneself to encroaching inevitability, to just give up and embrace what’s coming.

-Travis Pynenburg, Pure Sophistry

Potatoman has the Best jump in the history of video games, seriously.

-PewDiePie, Youtube
