The Zwuggels
Here's a sketch of some of the main characters of the game:

Your children meet the quirky Zwuggels at their cosy home. They experience the enchanting world of the Zwuggels through many mini-games and go on a fun adventure.

This is a desktop version of the game that has been out on mobile devices since September 2016. We ported it to Steam because we know that the beautiful graphics also shine on big screens! We have made some changes to make sure it works well on a mouse + large screen setup.

My 4 year old's first game Wanted to finally introduce our 4 year old to games and chose this for its cute characters and innocence. He needed some gentle explanation for the controls and the idea that he could let go of things to try them in places but after that, he loved it. His eyes lit up on the second level when he saw a little boy Zwuggel play with a train, enthused to Mama & after stopping, he emulated the girl climbing across the waterfall using sticks for hand and footholds. Full marks from this parent -- good safe fun :)

System Requirements
