Support Platform Maker on Greenlight

Hey all

Platform Maker is a continuation of our platform game journey, which began with Life of Pixel.

EVERYONE CAN PLAY & ANYONE CAN CREATE Add enemies, blocks, power-ups, gravity pads, traps and much more.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=885390692

Choose between RETRO and MODERN themes. Classic computer/console, horror, sci-fi, minimal, and so many more.

Designed with the creativity and accessibility of Minecraft in mind; the base tileset, backgrounds, animations and enemies are swapped out when you select a new theme. We will supply a range of themes at launch, or you can create your own - you can change everything - even the sounds!

Create & Share Your Own Platformer Levels...

About This Game

Life of Pixel - 13 Game Machines in 1 Epic Adventure Game!

Journey across the expertly-recreated worlds of more than a dozen vintage gaming systems, from Commodore 64 to Gameboy to Snes! Life of Pixel takes you on a historical tour-de-force across the rich landscape of 8-bit and 16-bit gaming.

Chock-full of tricks & traps, double jump challenges, gravity inversion, special power-ups, puzzles you must vanquish the enemy pixels and bosses who try to thwart you throughout your quest. Life of Pixel will show you the coolness of video gaming and the history of where it all began and how it evolved.

GAME FEATURES:


Inspired by the 8 & 16-bit Eras
Take a journey with the wizened Professor Pixel and revisit the golden age of gaming. Featuring a massive variety of beautiful pixel art from classic 8 & 16-bit game systems, such as Amiga, SNES, Mega Drive, Commodore 64, Apple II, Game Boy, NES, Atari 2600, ZX Spectrum & Master System!

Revisit Classic Games
Look out for nudges to console classics like Mega Man, Castlevania, Zelda, Streets of Rage, Shinobi, Metroid, Wonder Boy, Pitfall, Sonic & more. Revisit computer legends such as Turrican, Uridium, Jet Set Willy, James Pond, Rick Dangerous, Prince of Persia, Impossible Mission, Exile & lots more.

Loads of Secrets!
Dozens of special secrets to uncover and experience. From silly little touches through to great big mega-epic secrets! Look out for jetpacks, bubbles to fly, trampolines, hidden rooms and maps, aeroplanes, skateboards and even a Sinclair C5!

Awesome Power-ups
