    King Rabbit is a puzzle-platformer that’s good for your brain. Includes level builder and endless levels for free!

    2 million players downloaded King Rabbit - Classic with an average of 4.8 stars on the US AppStore. We felt we could do more to improve the experience, so we decided to rebuild the game entirely in Unity and make it cross-platform. This will help us be accessible to more players and provide a stable foundation for many years of updates.

    Monetization

    King Rabbit is free. We wanted our game to be accessible to the world including those that can’t spend. We make money from hints, cosmetic skins and items, and ads.

    What its about

    The core gameplay is about solving puzzles and avoiding traps. Once you learn the basics of the game you can start to build your own levels which are shared with the world. Good builders will earn followers and tips from their fans.

    Exploration - Find secrets and explore challenging levels
    Thinking - Exercise your brain with puzzles
    Creating - Build your own levels
    Sharing - Publish levels to gain a following
    Collecting - Collect rabbits and new items for the builder

    Features
    • Cross-platform - Sync data between devices
    • Collect - Buy limited edition rabbits (100 of each)
    • Campaign - Hop through high quality levels
    • Level builder - Easy drag and drop building
    • Statistics - Get data on the levels you build
    • Leaderboards - Compete with other players
    • Replays - Watch people play your levels
    • Spectate - Watch other people play
    • Social - Follow your favorite builders
    Future updates
    • Marketplace - Buy and sell rabbits on the market
    • New game modes
    • More content: items, music, characters, builder tools, etc.
    Release date

    Mobile - April 10, 2020 (Easter weekend)
    Steam - Available now

    Early access on mobile!

    Wow that's great news that your going to do that and able to do it. I suck at the harder levels of the game lol but it doesn't stop me liking the game.

    Will certainly buy it whenever it's released.

    I only found King Rabbit and Furdemption, recently. I though Furdemption was a sequel to King Rabbit 1. Will be interested in this. I hope it is a paid game, like Furdemption, and not free-to-play with IAP.

    Premium rabbits, limited to 100 of each skin worldwide. We think rarity is cool even though we might make less money. Rabbits will eventually be bought and sold in a marketplace, prices will fluctuate!

    I don't know how you Rare Sloth guys can keep coming up with new puzzles for the levels! Furdemption is hands down one of my favourite iOS games, and the only reason I haven't gotten stuck in to King Rabbit is because the first one became a complete time sink for me (think I'm still in the top 10 for overall time!).

    You'd be a great fit for Nintendo's handhelds (I have a Switch myself), provided the console snobs don't turn their noses up at one of the greatest puzzle games of the past few years because it began on mobile. That said, can physical controls be as fast as swipes for the speed runners?

    Good luck with KR2.

    Hey thanks for the words!

    In regards to the physical controls, I think they can be just as fast (if not faster) than the swipes. We are thinking about mapping directional movement to the "X, Y, B, A" buttons.

    In terms of pure speed running, I think PC will have the greatest capability of all platforms for top speed.

    Woo! Great to have it on Android. I like a lot of the new changes, though loading times seem longer than I remember back with King Rabbit - Classic. But then this is Beta, and I'm just glad to get to play again!!! Keep it up!

    Thank you!

    We just updated with lots of new goodies.
    • Graveyard realm added with 30 free levels.
    • The skeleton character has been added, he’s not very smart and not very violent. When he hits an obstacle he’ll turn around. Useful for creating more complex machines and triggering things.
    • New “skull” items available in the store.
    • Limited edition "grape" rabbit in the store for 5,000 gold.
    • Slow time has been added! If you struggle with those fast-paced levels, slow things down for a more relaxing experience.
    • The royal subscription is now available. Get 3 hints and 6 slow time monthly, unlimited skips, and get a gold crown badge next to your name.
    • The leaderboard is now gone. If you missed it, here’s why we removed the leaderboard.
    • Lots of other fixes and improvements, here’s the full list.

    We have an awesome and active community growing roots on Discord. Here you can share levels, get help from other players, submit feedback, and speak directly with Brian & Austin - the creators of King Rabbit. Join Discord.

    Sincerely,

    Brian & Austin

    Just to get things clear in my head because for some reason I’m not completely sure between the versions. But this is going to be the latest version of the game?

    (Sorry for late reply) Yes, this is a completely new King Rabbit.

    We re-built it in a different engine to be able to port to multiple platforms and make everything better. :)

    @RareSloth thank you. I loved the other versions even if I wasn’t very good at them after getting into harder levels but I still want more.

    Will save data from the TestFlight version carry over to the release version?

    Also just wondering is the subscription going to be the only way to remove ads because I don’t want monthly subscriptions in all my games. But I don’t play games that make me watch or see ads all the time either.

    Playing more I see I have to have the subscription to play more levels too or watch an ad to play more levels which I really don’t like at all. I’d rather a purchase for unlimited skips and remove ads so unlimited play.
