Frog Fractions 3 has been found

And it might actually be Frog Fractions 4. 

A fresh helping of the bizarre Flash game turned internet meme Frog Fractions is now available - and fans of the series will be unsurprised to hear this latest chapter has been released in a unconventional way.

After a labyrinthine ARG and stealth release for Frog Fractions 2, this new instalment is at least a little easier to track down. Download the Frog Fractions: Game of the Decade Edition (it's free) from Steam and you'll see an option to install a £5.75 DLC for a cosmetic item - a hat.

Of course, this DLC is not just a hat. Three years on from Frog Fractions 2, this is an entirely new dollop of Frog Fractions big enough to be a Frog Fractions 3 - although series creator Jim Crawford has since argued this is more like a Frog Fractions 4. Because he would say that.

"It's a Frog Fraction sequel," Crawford told PC Gamer. "In my headcanon: Frog Fractions 2 was the Kickstarter/ARG to find Frog Fractions 2. Frog Fractions 3 was Glittermitten Grove. Frog Fractions 4 is the hat DLC."

Without spoiling any of its surprises, Frog Fractions fans should look forward to more of the series typical genre-twisting and fourth wall breaking puzzles, and its general refusal to adhere to any traditional video game norms. Hop to it!
