“Everything is possible in the infinite expanses of the cosmos .. there might even be a reality where mayonnaise isn’t an instrument!” reads the press release.

“When the mysterious fortune teller Kassandra grants Spongebob and Patrick wishes, the two buddies unintentionally open up portals to strange Wishworlds… it’s all F.U.N. and games until their friends get lost in the portals!”

The Steam page reveals that classic Spongebob moves such as the fishhook swing and the karate kick will be integrated into the game as “platforming skills”, and that balloon-Patrick Star will be a permanent companion throughout the game.

The title will feature seven distinct worlds and more than 30 cosmic skins that can be equipped as players hop between different realities. In the trailer Spongebob and Patrick are initially sucked through a portal, where they meet Sandy Cheeks in a Game Of Death jumpsuit, and we see Spongebob transforming into different versions of himself.
