The game aims to be an AAA action-platformer featuring an original Funko Pop character named Freddy Funko.

According to that press releaseThe development team will be led by Jon Burton, best known for his work on Traveller’s Tales.

However, we do know that the company is targeting a 2023 release date with its as-yet-untitled game.
