This is a 2023 platform game developed by Purple Lamp Studios and published by THQ Nordic. Like Sinister Squidward, it is based on the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants and came out for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One on January 31, 2023.
The Cosmic Shake was developed by Purple Lamp Studios, who had previously developed the title SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated (2020).

THQ Nordic unveiled a new trailer featuring gameplay at the end of their games showcase in August 2022. They present a playable demo of the game at Gamescom 2022.
