A downloadable game for Windows

The Misadventures of Spiky is a 2.5D puzzle-adventure game with focus on environmental storytelling. You play as the innocent hedgehog Spiky, peacefully tucked away in your pile of leaves. All of a sudden, you get thrown out of your home by a reckless camper with a rake! Devastated, you decide to set out on a dangerous journey through the forest, to find a new home...

On the way, you will run into all kinds of obstacles and challenges that you need to overcome. You will need to hide from danger, cross a heavily trafficked road, and much more, in order to reach your goal! Through your journey, you might also “accidentally” trigger one disaster after another creating panic and mayhem for the humans and the other animals. In the background a story will be told, so keep your eyes open on both the path and the background, what can you see that Spiky cannot?

Leave your worries behind and venture out to find a new home!

This was our second project at Futuregames . The project spanned for 5 weeks, including one week for preproduction.

Great game! Love the aesthetic, extremely cute! Shows great potential, however a few serious bugs which need fixing. (getting stuck on objects, settings menu crashing the game) However overall, had a great time playing it! 

This game had everything I wanted and more. Cute hedgehogs, the great out doors and fire. So much fire.... 

very cute game, I hope you can make this game longer , like an hour, and sell on steam. really love it.

I thought this was going to be a cute and innocent game, but it wasn't... it was faaar better :D

Thank you for this game this is so awesome i love it.

such a fun game and I really enjoyed the story! Well done! I hope Spiky will have more misadventures someday! 

This game has a very good message. Also beautiful graphics and music.

Very cute and fun game, but definitely did not see that tragedy coming...

Such an interesting game with a really good story! 

This game is Amazing :D

MEET MY PET HEDGEHOG! This game is outstanding! Very well made! :)

This was just as adorable as it was startling and for that I love it. There were some small technical issues with the physics and m/kb to gamepad transition, but other than that it was just a strange and unique experience.

Hey! Played this on my channel and had a really good time. That destructive lil' hedgehog is adorable.

Hey, Tobias :D I cant seem to get the game to run :( i get a black screen :( is it ok if you can give me a list of the minimum system requirments? :)

Hey Shan,

This is what I would try.

Perform a full Window Update

Run "devmgmt.msc" and find your graphics card then right cllick and update

Download and run the following adwcleaner, rkill and JRT to clean your system. If you have windows 7 run combofix as well (if you want the links then let me know) and try superantispyware

also run from the command prompt "sfc /scannow" then reboot.

Can you also empty "c:\temp" and "C:\windows\system32\temp"

and then reboot and try again and report back



Hey Shan! Did you get the game to work? Since this was a student project we didn't spend time trying out minimum system requirements. The only criteria we had for it was that the game should work on a school computer. I can look up the specifications for them if you wish.

Did you try any of wobblyfootgamer's suggestions?

What a great little project DEVS. Spikey sure was a pain in the butt lol, setting fire the forest, causing car crashes and don't forget that poor little. Put together really well. Great graphics/audio and a great little adventure.


43 minutes from launch to video. Holy crap that's fast

Hey Coalfire,

How you doing bud? You've been doing some great videos and honest reviews. Keep it up.

Err yeah, I'm sat here so damn bored. I'm drinking whiskey, playing my bass and hitting refresh button. There's is nothing else to do FFS. It's just too damn warm.

Keep safe.


Side note, I played it twice as well. Really great little project and I loved it when he set the forest on fire. Awesome hahahaha

My video is already scheduled :) Couldn't pass this one up!

Thanks wobblyfootgamer and thanks for a nice and fun playthrough! :)
