Dangerous creatures await including snakes, bugs, angry flowers, and numerous other hazards!

  • 8 epic bosses!

Chris Totten
Chris is the founder and creator of Pie for Breakfast Studios and the one that grew this plant from seedling to full bloom. He handled most if not all of the various branches of Kudzu - from game design to 2D animations. Inspired by an architecture project gone wrong from the past, he lovingly constructed this title as a homage to Game Boy titles of the past.
