"A well-crafted puzzle adventure with innovative gameplay and plenty of heart"

"Plangman is the platforming version of hangman, and you can’t see me now but I'm giving that portmanteau a standing ovation."
- PC Gamer

"Lovingly designed"

"Plangman is billed as a game that 'blends hangman and platforming' but that doesn't do its weirdness justice."
Game Informer

"This is really good! The story was captivating, the gameplay was unique, the difficulty was just right, everything was amazing. Thank you for making this and putting it out for people to play it, I loved it."
- Reddit commenter

"I am a huge, huge fan of Plangman's delivery. Everything from how the story's told, to the gameplay, to the music, it all has this air of just wanting to tell a tale for someone to enjoy. And it does a GREAT job."

the soundtrack is such a vibe


Glad to hear it "resonated" with you.


infinite health bug. just reset then get star on level J.

When you reset, your health should also be reset to whatever it was when the level started. Are you seeing something different?


Well done, this was fun to play.

Thanks for playing!
