Platfinity is in the Groupees Build a Greenlight Bundle 17!
Description
Release date: 10/14/2014
Platfinity™, the platform game you create while you play.

Create and play your own platform games!

Change platforms, tiles, backgrounds, hazards, characters, sounds and more, easily and with no programming required!
Create your own graphics for any in-game item, directly in the game, making a new game in minutes.
Move seamlessly between editing and playing your game.

Set platforms and hazards to move in any direction and at any speed.
Add effects like icy, bouncy, sticky and more to platforms and tiles.
Enhance your game's appearance with foreground and background tiles.
Use the Retrofilter to give your games a pixelated retro look.
Your creations are automatically saved for you, and sharing your game or adding a downloaded game is as easy as copy and paste!

Includes the example games: "Proving Grounds of the Mad Game Designer", a brutal test of your platforming skills; "Purgatory", a dark, emotional tale of a man stuck in limbo; "8 Bit Love Affair", a retro style game with classic graphics. Now includes George Dziov's "ghost In The City", a futuristic adventure!

Q.: Why do you want the game to be on Steam?

A.: I want to add Steam Workshop features to make it even easier to share your game levels.
It will be easier for me to add to the game and update as Steam automatically patches your games.

Q.: Is the game finished?

A.: Yes! Platfinity is fully functional and feature complete. I am planning on adding enhancements and new features to make it even better, all of which will be included at no charge. Let me know what you want to see in the game? :)

tl;dr: It's like the indie version of #MarioMaker
I have been developing it for over two years now, way before Mario Maker was announced ;)

thanks for the update Zer0]{elvin ... its true, people love card, badges, wallpapers... it add some "value" when it will be release on steam..

There's also some artwork to be done making the Badges, Trading Cards, Backgrounds and Emoticons...and art is not my strongest skill so they take me some time to get right, heheh

I'm hoping to get that stuff done this month (October), but the release date is still "when it's done" for now. Thanks for being patient everyone, you will get Steam keys when it's done no matter where you bought it!

Oh, never saw this comment until now:
" One question remains since this is greenlit. Is there a new release date set for Platfinity? "

I haven't set a date yet. I've got a build working on Steam with a stub in there for achievements. I'm working on figuring out what achievements to add...I don't want to rush that as I want the achievements to be interesting ones people will want to do, not boring ones or too easy or too hard.
I've also made jumping a bit more interactive and a whole bunch of other things have been improved. I had to move some of the data from the program folder for the Steam version as Steam has a set of files that remain the same for your game. The biggest improvement is there is now one-click Export to a stand-alone game, so you can sell or share your games with people who don't have Platfinity.

One question remains since this is greenlit. Is there a new release date set for Platfinity?
