A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Here is where you'll find the free demo for our game The Pedestrian!

If you haven't seen it before, The Pedestrian is a 2.5D side-scrolling puzzle platformer that takes an interesting twist on the genre. It's a build-your-own-solution game with a unique art style centered around public signs, e.g., male & female bathroom symbols, elevator symbol, etc. The Pedestrian is set to release in the first quarter of 2017. It will be available on Steam Mac & PC.

Planning, moving, connecting, adjusting, tweaking, winning! Puzzles are simple - get from the start to the end, but as they say, "It's not the destination, it's the journey." Use creativity to rearrange and connect the signs to create a path to continue your journey. The Pedestrian must use his creative ability and puzzle-solving skills to avoid and overcome obstacles in the signs.

We're live on Kickstarter! Feel free to check it out at the link below.

Disclaimer: The demo below lasts about 10 minutes. The goal is to teach the player the basic puzzle mechanics and give a taste of the environment. Please keep in mind this is the "tutorial area" so all the puzzles are very basic. Thanks for playing!

This looks like an AWESOME game! Can't wait to try it. How much will it cost?

For the full release, we are looking at around $15.



This game was amazing, It's rare these days to find something both "unique" and "charming" in the game market. I believe The Pedestrian is both of these qualities and more, can't wait to play the full release.


This is an insanely unique game, can't wait for it to get released to play the full version! <3

Playthrough of the demo:


I really love this game, short but amazing!

I was pleased to play the demo for this, I was aware of this game a short while ago and I hope it helps the support for this game.

I love this game. I can't wait for the full version :)


This is amazing! Great art style and fun puzzle mechanics. Really polished-looking. Would play a full version of this. The only difficult thing was to understand when the state of the puzzle gets reset exactly. I guess it's when you break a connection? When I hooked up rooms one by one the player kept his position in the puzzle, but when I shuffle stuff around too much and connections break then it gets reset? Anyway, really cool!

Thanks, hedgefield! You are correct. The puzzles only reset when a connection is broken. we are still working on a better way to communicate that. Thanks for the feedback!

Its not my type of game but the graphics look AWESOME!!!!!

I guess I never shared my playthough here. I really enjoy this game, it's a really great concept. I will be supporting the game in Kickstarter and will do more videos as it's updated. Great Job Skookum Arts.


I cannot wait for the full game! Super fun!

Let's solve some Puzzles at The Pedestrian!


Brilliant game! Fun, imaginative, unique concept and still challenging. I genuinely got stumped at some of the puzzles and rather than feeling frustrated, wanting to search for the solution elsewhere, it was a joy to try to figure it out of myself. Like the music, although my only complaint is that it can get a little repetitive after enough gameplay, but I like the style and composition.

The animations and visual design is great. Well crafted with a lot of care and attention, I would highly recommend it and am looking forward to playing the full game!


We really enjoyed playing this game. Puzzle mechanics are great, the 2d / 3d mashup is stunning, and we love the whole feel of the game. Thanks for making this, we hope you enjoy watching us play the first few levels of the demo.

For those that want to see more of this gameplay.

This Games Awesome But It Crashed 2 times for me in less than 15 mins heres my lp of it https://youtu.be/rwd78bibhE4

Hey BLS,

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the heads up about it crashing. We will look into it.

ok Thanks!


This game has a lot of potential. I would love to see this game get completed. I just made a LP vid out of it, by the way. Cheers! :D


A very different and unique platforming game that has a lot of cool idea's and potential! Really eager to see how much more you guys will put into it and definitely started following this after seeing that it was on steam greenlight. The movements of the little stick-man is really fluid, while also the transitions make it feel like it's not too harsh and actually moving along with the character's movements to either go forward or backward was a clever way to move onto the next platform. It's very fascinating and can't wait to see how it all comes out!

Also played this and wanted to share it, hope you don't mind~!


Holy CRAP this is fun! I can't wait for the finished product now :D

Made a let's play. Hope it helps!


This game is so good. how many levels will there be and what platforms will it be on?

Thanks a lot! There will be around 50 actual levels for the main story. Not including all of the areas between puzzles where you get to explore a little. We are hoping to have a special area that will be "Kickstarter backer" created puzzles (if you are a backer of that tier). So that could be a lot of fun as well!

The game will first come out on PC for Mac, Windows and Maybe Linux if it doesn't give us any problems. PS4 a couple of months after the PC release.

Thanks for the info. I may make a video for the demo in a day or two. When i do where should i send people? Do you have a Twitter account?

yes we do! it's https://twitter.com/SkookumArts.

Thanks so much for the support!
