SpongeBob SquarePants in games

SpongeBob SquarePants has starred in dozens of video games. Most have sadly been lost to time but a few truly stand out. THQ has been the publisher of the majority of these games – though the license passed to Activision in 2013. It switched back to ‘THQ Nordic’ in 2015 and since then, it’s been up to some good stuff – including the upcoming SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake.

THQ Nordic recently published the excellent SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. Battle for Bikini Bottom was originally released in 2003 and became a cult hit. Over the following decade the game earned many devoted fans, and it also built up a significant speedrunning community. THQ Nordic then worked with a new developer – Purple Lamp Studios – to create the ‘Rehydrated’ version, which was released in 2019. 

Purple Lamp Studios and THQ Nordic have teamed up again to create this brand new SpongeBob SquarePants game – The Cosmic Shake.
