MouseCraft 1.1 is live, also a -33% discount!

Hey guys!

Firstly - MouseCraft is currently -33% off and it probably won't be in a similar discount for a longer time, so it's a pretty good time to get it if you still haven't played it.

Secondly - since the launch we have been fixing and adding some stuff, but we didn't feel like they're worth mentioning separately. We thought we will write a bigger post when there's more to tell and I guess now is a good time to do it.

Changelog since launch:

  • Updated Steam integration to Steamworks 1.31 and fixed all Linux issues regarding Achievements, Leaderboards and Stats. It will also allow us to add Steam Workshop support in the future.
  • Increased the performance and quality of videos for Mac OSX.
  • Added full keyboard support - now you can play the game solely with a keyboard.
  • Added Xbox gamepad support for Windows and Mac OSX (support for Linux is pretty experimental). Details below.
  • Added 2 new languages: Italian and Dutch (thanks to Puxxup and jpelgrom)
  • Added Polish descriptions and names for Achievements (thanks to RobeN)
  • Added a "language sniffing" mechanism - the game will now set the language according to the operating system language (if there is no other language setting saved already).
  • Optimized a lot of graphics stuff - reduced the number of draw calls by 30%.
  • Added functionality to Effects toggle - setting effects to "off" will result in launching the game in a mode suitable for older, low-end computers.
  • Added a green outline showing the currently active Moving Brick.
  • Moved all brick outlines to a higher layer so they are more visible during Active Pause.
  • Feature cutscenes will no longer appear if you have already completed the level where the feature was introduced.
  • Lots of Level Editor bugfixes.

Gamepad support
  • Windows: Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers should work out of the box if you have the necessary drivers. A PS3 controller can be used with Motionin Joy application and emulating Xbox 360 controller.
  • Mac OSX: requires free 3rd party driver by Tattiebogle.
  • Linux: We're not really sure it will work - it really depends on the drivers.

Oh, and here's a little image showing the controls scheme for Xbox controller:



Hope you'll like it!

Cheers,

“MouseCraft is a game that manages to take inspiration from two classic titles and create something fun. The fact that I became obsessed with making sure every mouse made it through the obstacle course tells you how addictive this game can be. Of the 80 levels included, there are a few that can stop you in your tracks and put you off from returning, but that minor flaw aside, MouseCraft is a great game that puzzle fans should take a look at.”
9/10 – The Sixth Axis

“If you’re a fan of puzzle games, don’t miss Crunching Koalas’ brilliant remix. MouseCraft drops you into a series of challenges that will initially make you feel like a mouse trapped in a maze. But after working your way through these environments, you’ll feel like a mad scientist who can’t be stopped.”
8/10 – Game Informer

“Offering up a new experience every time the mice finish their well-deserved cheese, MouseCraft is a refreshing experience for those in need of a complex puzzle game. It may not be has light-hearted as it could have been, but Mousecraft succeeds by making the player think instead of laugh. With fresh ideas in every level diminishing the possibility of boredom, who needs simplicity?”

Early Access Review
MouseCraft is a puzzle game that should appeal to casual gamers and hardcore puzzle enthusiasts alike. Finding one solution to pass a level is usually trivial, but if you aim to collect every anima shard and get all three mice to the cheese, you might be in for a challenge.

The first stage is relatively simple and does a good job of introducing you to the gameplay mechanics. By the end of stage two though, I found myself genuinely stumped at some of the puzzles. I probably spent a good ten minutes or more figuring out some of those last challenges.

The game also has a cutesy story in between stages that I found charming in a quirky way. If you've played these kinds of puzzle games before, you probably know what to expect in terms of exposition. It's never going to win a video game award for best story, but it serves its purpose in providing some small reward for progression.

Overall, the 80 levels should take 6-10 hours to complete, depending on your skills with puzzle solving, and there's enough variation to keep you entertained throughout the game. There is also a very good and intuitive level editor that should provide additional content through Steam Workshop when support for it is added. In the meantime, it's possible to share and download player created levels via a Dropbox account the developer has set up.

It's a game I don't hesitate to recommend and it is among my absolute favourites in the puzzle genre.

Mousecraft is very similar to tetris puzzles, using the same style blocks only with a twist. You get a set amount of differant blocks to use and you must place them in a way so the mice can get to the cheese with out killing them. You also must try and collect the crystals as well. As you progress through the puzzles you earn more blocks, being differant type's, jelly blocks for the softer landings and bomb blocks to blow stuff up and many more.There is also Steam Acheviements to be earned as well. The game has just been updated and finished so this is very good news. I have enjoyed playing Mousecraft and the little mice are very cute, so if you like puzzle type games then I'm sure you'll like this little gem. :)

One great thing about this game is you get to a level which looks fiendishly difficult, you just place a few blocks and start it up and then you're on your way. Then you can start to rack your brain on how to get all the crystals (shards). NICE FAMILIAR TETRIS BLOCKS BUT TETRIS SKILLS ARE NOT REQUIRED HERE ! Excellent game all round, highly recommended.
