Big Indie Pitch #4 – 1st Place

Wonzie World

Wonzie World (originally called Kissy Kissy) is a funny game about toddlers running around avoiding Kissies. Inspired by Constance’s grandchildren, the gameplay mechanics are based on what real children do – run away and build dens that grownups are too big to get inside.

Wonzie World’s playful storyworld is gender-neutral and non-violent, and aims to subtly deliver a message about children’s autonomy and body boundaries. Its co-operative gameplay counteracts common narratives of competition, and has intergenerational audience appeal. Level one was shared on itch during lockdown to spread a little joy, and the latest version of Wonzie World has a remote playable option which enables dispersed friends and families to play together.

The quaint meets the prehistoric when your village is propelled into the past!

Farm and forage and solve mysteries along the way. With the help of your sister’s ingenious inventions, you’ll grow things in a matter of moments. As you explore the village, cove, prehistoric forest, caves and even under the sea, you’ll make friends and piece together the puzzles of the past.

Offering the relaxation of a farming game, combined with the intrigue of cosy mysteries, Cultivate: Before Time is a game about community, identity, work/life balance and the nature of time. Cultivate’s mysteries revolve around English quaintness, sci-fi inventions and – of course – DINOSAURS!
