Later Alligator, a hand-drawn 2d animation game, released its first trailer this week.

A collaboration between Lindsay and Alex Small-Butera’s Smallbu Animation (Baman Piderman, special episodes of Adventure Time and Clarence) and indie developer Pillow Fight (Heaven will be Mine, Rose of Winter), Later Alligator tells the story of Pat the alligator, described as “a (mostly) harmless and (probably) innocent reptile at the center of a conspiracy that could bring down the biggest, scariest family in Alligator New York City: his own!”

Besides its hand-drawn universe, the family-friendly game features 30 mini-games and challenges, over 100 alligators to investigate, and multiple endings, as well as a fully-animated finale.

“I’m incredibly passionate about working with a small team creatively,” said Lindsay Small-Butera. “What Alex and I do as animated filmmakers is awfully different from the work Jo [Kreyling] and Conrad [Kreyling] do as gamedevs, so both teams can really shine in a way that feels like a collaboration on an art piece.”

Later Alligator will release on Steam and Itch.io for PC, Mac, and Linux in 2019.
