What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While PlataGO! is a very simple tool to use and play, it's a hugely complicated undertaking. With so many moving parts, so many combinations, so many ways to use it - there's an infinite amount of possibilities.

As a result, with a small team, it's near-impossible to put through its paces. We feel we've got PlataGO! to a good level of stability, now we need the community's help to really stress test the system.

Use it, explore the possibilities, push the boundaries of PlataGO! - but most importantly, please enjoy it and share your creations. We want you, not just to play test, but to shape the future of PlataGO!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to fully release PlataGO! by the end of 2018. That said, we are fully committed to implementing your suggested changes - to make PlataGO! the best it can be. We will only release it when we, and the community is happy.”

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

“At this stage, we are providing the simple platform and framework for you to play with and enjoy. Only by experimenting with PlataGO! can we truly understand what work remains to be done. In the future we are hoping to implement the following features:

- Gradients and diagonals for terrain
- Bosses
- Multi-directional shooting
- More power up variety
- More camera styles - fixed, vertical etc

These are just a few examples. Ultimately, the shape of PlataGO! will come down to the community and the features you request, so please don't be shy in voicing your opinion!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment, PlataGO! is a pretty stable tool that anyone can pick up and enjoy. There are a few bugs which appear from time to time because of the versatile nature of the software. It's very difficult to predict exactly how everyone is going to use it, or what kind of levels and combinations people are likely to come up with.

If you do encounter serious problems, please let us know so we can replicate and fix them. We hope, in it's current state that you won't encounter too many, however!”

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

“Yes, we imagine that the final price of PlataGO! will be higher - mainly because we intend to use the Early Access phase to increase the range and quality of the features you find in the game.

That said, the ethos of PlataGO! is to make a game creation tool that is simple enough for everyone to enjoy. It is important to us that PlataGO! is affordable and a good entry point for budding game creators, so PlataGO! will be priced accordingly!”

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

“First and foremost, please share your creations so everyone can enjoy what you make!
We would particularly encourage players to edit their own tile sets and sprites.

This is a relatively simple process if you have a copy of Photoshop, and your creations will help enrich PlataGO! immensely.

If you've made a level you're particularly proud of, please share with the community!
If you want to make something, but feel a new feature would be necessary to realize your vision, let us know. Maybe it's something we can add to the final version!

Our vision is to make a comprehensive platform game maker, and only at this Early Access phase, with your help, can we begin to realize this goal.”

Reviews

“A 2D platform game maker with a very simple interface. It’s extremely easy to use – easy enough for you to make a level in mere minutes and then play test it instantly”
Rice Digital

“PlataGO! wants you to create your own 8-bit (16-bit ish) levels and not only play them yourself but share with other owners of the game. I’m loathe to call it a game as it really goes far deeper than that... you’d be silly not to give it a whirl. For $4.99 PlataGO! is a steal.”
Arcade Attack

“I anticipate PlataGO! will become a diverse and powerful tool which will rival the likes of Super Mario Maker.”
