The Good Mood Creators creating game based on those they played when its team was younger
Seattle-based indie developer The Good Mood Creators is planning to launch its new platformer in the fourth quarter of 2015. Mekazoo will take 2D platforming gameplay into a 3D environment.
The platformer will feature five playable characters called mekanimals, each with a unique ability for getting around levels. Good Mood Creators creative director Jarrett Slavin said, “Mekazoo is inspired by the platformer classics we spent every second with after school, like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country. We are combining all the lessons learned from those masterpieces and the innovative ideas we’ve spent decades brainstorming to deliver the game we wish existed since we were kids.”
While there are five characters, players will only be able to take two at a time, providing an extra challenge.
Mekazoo is scheduled for release in Q4 2015 on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U platforms.
