What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The first goal of early access is to give us the time to create the best game possible. We want to create a relationship based on collaboration and trust with our players. For this we have created a Discord server that will be used to communicate directly with you, take your feedback on the game (improvement ideas, feedback, bug report ...) or inform you about the latest updates.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that some months of development will be needed before the game is ready to come out of early access. This should bring the game out in the year 2020. But at this stage it is difficult for us to give a precise release date.”

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

“We want the final version of the game to contain a lot of additional levels and environments. This will allow us to give an end to the story of the game, to add new game mechanics and additional characters. We also want to add new levels concept and cooperative modes.
We would like to point out that we will continue to work on the levels based on player's feedback. The best times, on those levels, can then be erased.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The main gameplay loops are complete and it is already possible to play your favorite donut (if you have unlocked it). Cranked Up also features:
  • 2 environments and about fifty levels
  • Multiplayer modes
  • Hidden objects to collect in each level
  • Secret levels
  • Unlock exclusive characters
  • Access to the beta (with the coop mode)

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

“Considering the large amount of content added during early access we expect to see the price increase at release.”

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

“As mentioned above, we want you to get involved as much as possible in the development process. This will take place mainly on Discord, where you will be able to make us your feedback as well as your proposals. Then we will be able to focus on what we need to work on.”

“What follows is a puzzle-y platformer that takes cues from Trials, Team 17 and the works of Bennett Foddy. It has the humour of Overcooked and the gameplay of Qwop.”
The Indie Game Website

“If loving a game where you have to bounce and rocket-blast a giant donut through ever-increasing obstacle courses all in the name of saving a sentient cup of coffee is wrong, then I don't want to be right. Thank God I've embraced the wrongness on this one!”


About This Game

Cranked Up is a challenging and crazy platform game where animal-themed donuts equipped with powerful rockets try to save Mr. Mug, their favorite cup of coffee! Master 50 different levels across two different worlds in an extensive single-player campaign mode, or team up with up to four friends. Play Cranked Up across various game modes, from Adventure story mode to hardcore The Floor is Lava and Time Trial modes.

  • Roll, jump, bounce and maneuver a rocket-boosted donut to discover and explore increasingly more challenging levels across two different zany worlds
  • Save Mr. Mug - everyone’s favorite cup of coffee - thwart a pineapple, and find out who is controlling the world in a complete single-player campaign. Revisit levels to collect all sugar boosts and discover secret levels.
  • Play with up to four friends in a completely offbeat universe
  • Go head-to-head and break a pal’s time record in Time Trial or avoid the ground in The Floor is Lava. See who gets to the top of the leaderboard!
  • Unlock all 10 glazed donut characters, and customize your own gang of sweetened ring-shaped fried dough.

Master the Controls
A nifty but highly unstable rocket system allows you to move your donut, but despite its outward simplicity, it remains a challenging way of maneuvering through the game world. Activate the right rocket at the right time. Otherwise, you risk going the wrong way.

Explore 50 different levels across a single all-encompassing Adventure mode. Collect sugar boosts to unlock and find the hidden doughnuts. There is even a rumour of secret levels to be discovered!

For you hardcore speedrunners out there, you can best the other player’s records in the challenging Time Trial mode. Crank your survival skills up a notch in the Floor is Lava mode.

(Beta Branch) Make your friends like you (or really not) by playing Cranked Up together in various modes.

(Beta Branch) Challenge your friends to see who will ride best. Within a set time limit, beat your opponent's ghost and make your own best time!
