Did you ever wish that you could create your very own stunning 16- or 32-bit platformer? Not one of those terrible mascot-driven shovelware titles that afflicted the ‘90s. Think Rayman and Wonder Boy.
In MagiCats Builder, you can drag-and-drop to your heart’s content, define behaviors (boss patterns and more), and place hazards/platforms using a simple visual coding engine. MagiCats Builder also includes a virtually infinite number of user-created levels for those long, sleepless summer nights 🙂
MagiCats Builder is launching on Steam, iOS, and Android on Tuesday, July 10.
The Cat’s Out of the Bag!
Coding was once a long-forgotten, mysterious skill in MagiCats Land – an elegant tool for a more civilized age. The moment Caramel the Cat comes in contact with the power of code, he is instantly transformed into a MagiCat – determined to master the art of coding to share it with the world!
Caramel gets busy populating the entire world with his creations – but he soon begins to grow bored … and turns to his fellow MagiCats for help. And lo and behold, this elite group of MagiCats all begin building “Catstructions” together – challenging one another to gather characters and create bigger and better Catstructions.
Every MagiCat that plays a Catstruction gets rewarded by the International Confurderation of MagiCat Amusement (ICMA for the insiders) for encouraging other MagiCats to get out and exercise. Competition is fierce: Outstanding Catstructions are ranked based on popularity on a weekly basis – and as you’d expect, all MagiCats long to be #1 on the list!
