For decades, the critters of platformers have suffered at the hands of heroes big and small. These critters never asked for trouble. They’re simple beings with simple minds, capable of doing only one or two tasks; some are even limited to walking left and right. When a hero barges into their level, they don’t know who he or she is; they just know that that hero has been stomping their friends in the previous levels and will probably show them no mercy as well.

So, even with their simple minds and limited physical capabilities, they do their best to thwart the hero. They leap out of pipes, they wait to attack when the player isn’t moving — even the simpletons do their best by waddling around, just hoping the hero trips into them.

These critters need a voice. Their story needs to be told.
