Nice treat for Super Mario Maker and Little Big Planet fans
Butterscotch Shenanigans unveiled their plans to bring their sandbox platformer, LevelHead, to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One once its Steam Early Access development is complete.
The developer announced this news alongside the game’s 11th(!!) update for PC which brings a new social likes system to player-made levels.
Here’s what Sam Coster, co-founder of Butterscotch Shenanigans, had to say:
“This genre of game transforms players into designers and lets them experience the thrill of having a crowd of people play the things they make. Levelhead’s tools are powerful enough that people are making other games inside it, from metroidvanias to Pokemon battles. We’ve been blown away by the Early Access community’s creativity so far, and we can’t wait to see what the Xbox community does with the game at launch.”
The game’s level editor lets players use programmable switches, secrets, and hundreds of level components to create the level of their dreams (or nightmares). Players publish levels to the game’s “Marketing Department”, which is a built-in level exchange that allows players to boost their levels to the top of the charts and collect thousands of plays.
Levelhead is currently available on Steam Early Access for $19.99.
