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

"Plangman is a unique game with a fantastic story to tell, one that I beat in one sitting without so much as standing up to get water."
Indie Bytes

"Kids will not only enjoy Plangman, but they'll be thinking ahead, reading a storyline, putting together letters and spelling out words that are sometimes quite challenging."
Getting Kids Reading


Plangman is the classic word-guessing game of hangman turned into a puzzle-platformer.

But the words you're guessing are not random. Rather, they're the scattered fragments of your own forgotten story—a story of unrequited love and rivalry whose end is yet to be written.

Version 1.6.3 is now live. Here's what's included:

  • Expanded some of the shorter levels
  • Added a "time to complete" stat that appears when a level is completed
  • Fixed some physics bugs (e.g. pushing and standing on loose blocks on moving platforms, cases where swiftly falling blocks could end up embedded partway inside other blocks, etc.)
  • Fixed some cases where enemies wouldn't be smashed
  • Improved the hoverboard controls, and added a checkpoint inside the tower
  • Other minor fixes and improvements

This is incredible. There's nothing else to say

Thanks so much.
