PLATAGO! Super Platform Game Maker
PQube has been pretty busy bringing PC games to the Nintendo Switch, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon. The latest game is PLATAGO! Super Platform Game Maker, and it will be released in early 2019 in Europe and North America.
Here’s a trailer (PC version) and some details:
PlataGO! Super Platform Game Maker allows players to start creating platform games in minutes, thanks to its easy-to-use, super-intuitive interface.
Click to drag environments and platforms, place enemies and collectibles into your stage in seconds – then hit ‘Play’ to instantly jump in and test your creation! Without the need for any code, scripting or development knowledge, PlataGO! is designed from the ground up to be immediately accessible to gamers of all ages!
Already including a vast resource of graphics – like environmental tiles and enemy sprites, PlataGO! gives new players everything they need to start building immediately. PlataGO! also comes packed with a host of fun gadgets and elements to let your imagination run wild.
From cannons to teleporters, gravity-flipping pads to moving platforms and deadly laser traps – PlataGO! gives players the license to be truly creative, while offering more experienced users the tools to make more advanced levels and game!
Once you’ve finished your creation, PlataGO! allows players to choose from a number of graphical themes which can instantly be switched between, making your creation look at home on classic consoles – from NES and Game Boy, to retro platforms like ZX Spectrum and C64!
Last but not least, sharing your levels and games with the PlataGO! community is extremely easy – just hit ‘share’ to upload your platformer for the world to play, and download the best levels and games the community has to offer.
But that’s not all: PQube is also holding a competition for players on PC, with the best levels and creations to be included in the Nintendo Switch version of the game. All you have to do to participate is upload something and tag it with one of the included themes for the competition in the Steam Workshop.
