Frog Minutes is a puzzle video game for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad platforms. Designed as a tribute to the 2011 earthquake which ruptured Japan, it was released to Apple's App Store on March 30, 2011, with proceeds of the game's sales being contributed to Japan's relief fund. The game was directed by Tadayuki Nomaru and developed by Grasshopper Manufacture. Frog Minutes was first announced only two days before release, on March 28, 2011. Further details were then revealed through a press conference and charity event held in Tokyo, Japan on the day of launch.

Frog Minutes is a simple, open-ended experience that tasks the player with hunting down various insects, including grasshoppers, and then feeding them to ambient frogs. Once a frog is full, it can be caught, whereupon the player will be rewarded with trivia on that particular species. A female voice shouts encouragement from the sidelines as all of this is going on.
