It can be exceedingly complicated to make a game for all audiences to enjoy rather than focus on a specific crowd, especially families. The remarkable team at The Good Mood Creators believe that creating a non-violent project meant to appeal to anyone and everyone is more than worth doing, it’s worth sharing and then celebrating. So today they revealed news of their amazing project Mekazoo to the public, and word must be spread!
In this 2D platformer words are barely needed when the screenshots, game footage and website seem to do all the talking with clarity. The graphics show off vibrancy full of fluidity, color and endless creativity. It’s appears like a thriving blend of science and nature complete with lively music accompanying the action. The player is given the chance to explore and conquer stunning 3D worlds by employing an assortment of five animated mekanimals: the speedy armadillo, acrobatic frog, springy wallaby, sturdy panda and high-flying pelican. Each has a matchless look followed by exceptional skills and when paired up can form a powerful combo. There’s also the added option of switching between the two controlled at any given time.
In order to defeat the insectoid army, gamers must play to the characters’ strengths by swinging, boosting, bouncing, climbing and flying their way through undeniably beautiful environments. Every turn while traveling shows a camera shift as well, even while upholding a side-view and supplying visible points in the blossoming scenery.
“Mekazoo is inspired by the platformer classics we spent every second with after school, like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country,” said Jarrett Slavin, creative director of The Good Mood Creators. “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.”
