What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is in fully playable form, and we feel it's super fun as-is. However, we want to include several features that will make it even better.
So we want to star with Early Access to test the foundations of the game with real users, get some feedback, and then relaunch the game in full form.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate it will take us between 2 and 4 months to include what we feel the game needs to be considered final.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version only has a medium difficulty level, we plan to include a easy level and also a harder one, both featuring different assets. The easy level will be over a field instead of a city, and the hard one will be in outer space.

Just to make it clear, the game will still be one long level, but it will transition from easy to medium and finally hard. If requested we will include the option to play in only one of the levels.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“PIXELMAN in Early Access is a fully playable game with the option to choose between 2 characters, Online Leaderboards, Steam Cloud, Achievements, Trading Cards, Badges, Profile Backgrounds and awesome Pixelart Emoticons.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the price of the game will be increased by nearly 30% after Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan on listening to what the Community has to say, and use some of that feedback to improve the game.”

About This Game


PIXELMAN is a retro styled action-filled, endless-flyer, high-score chaser, where you control the title character in his mission to rescue the citizens of Pixville from the evil Baron Von Pixel and his contraptions.
In PIXELMAN you need to keep your combos going to be able to make it into the online leaderboards!

The citizens of Pixville are counting on you!

How to Play

Controlling PIXELMAN is very simple: you press and hold to go up, release to go down, and you can also use the pad to move faster (but with less accuracy!) Your goal is to rescue the citizens (humans and their pets!) to keep your heroic energy up, and also avoid crashing into buildings, traffic, and Von Pixel’s weapons and traps.
If you don’t rescue anyone for a while, your heroic energy will go down; and if it reaches zero, you´ll lose your powers and fall!

XBox 360 Controllers, Mouse and Keyboards supported (We truly recommend the controller).

Combos

Every time you rescue a Pixelian, your combo meter will go up. Once you’ve rescued 5 in a row, your score will start to multiply! BUT, if you fail to rescue a single soul, you meter will deplete, and you’ll have to start all over again. Keep the combos going for maximum high-scorage!

Power Ups

From time to time, you’ll come across a present box. If you grab it, you’ll activate the power up mode! In this mode, your score and combo meter multiply, your speed goes up, and you can’t get hurt! The bad thing is, it only lasts for one hit, so you better watch out!

PIXELMAN

He’s Pixville’s senior superhero, his superpowers are flying and untying knots really fast. He also loves podiums! His main weaknesses are buildings, bombs, lasers and missiles… nothing that a good power up can’t fix!

PIXELGIRL

She’s Pixville’s new superhero! She’s pretty much like PIXELMAN, but faster and cooler! Once you learn her quirks, she’ll start racking up points like nothing!

Baron Von Pixel

PIXELMAN’s main antagonist is a mustache twirling villain who hates everyone in Pixville. He managed to buy a few rusty WWI weapons on Craigslist, and he’s not afraid to use them! His main hobby is to tie people up and leave them on top of buildings, trees and cars. Only PIXELMAN can stop his devious schemes!

Podiums

What’s a superhero without a podium to stand on? In PIXELMAN you start on top of a sad soapbox, but to show their gratitude after being rescued, the Pixelians will start building new podiums for you! Can you unlock them all? Are you the hero Pixville needs? Or the hero Pixville deserves? How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Online Leaderboards

The game doesn’t have an ending. You can play until your eyes bleed or the speed goes so far up that you can’t control your hero anymore! The goal of the game is to make it to the online leaderboards. And in order to achieve that, you need to maintain your combos going. If you have a high combo and you manage to get a power up, you can make over 1000 points for just one rescue!

Achievements

Can you slalom between 50 rockets? Can you survive over 5 minutes in one gameplay? Can you reach over NINE THOUSAND!!!™ points in one game? If the answer is YES, this is the game for you! We have 20 achievements ready for the hardcore PIXELMAN players to show their skills!

Trading Cards, Badges, Profile Backgrounds and Emoticons

PIXELMAN fully supports all Steam features, you're going to love our Pixelart emoticons!
