Description
Release date: 2016
Cranium Conundrum is a physics-based puzzle platformer taking place in the dream worlds that you create!

Disclaimer: The game is currently in early-access on Itch.io and the current version is not completely representative of the final product. We aim for STEAM Early Access release this autumn. This version will be updated on bi-weekly to monthly basis and certain features will be added or removed as the game is being developed.

Current Features:
  • An Extensive Level Editor with many gameplay features and physics-enabled blocks/materials
  • An (Early) Save/Load so you can show off your currently in-progress levels to your friends to play and enjoy or for you to finish creating at a later date.
  • An (Early) multiplayer enabled in the level editor for you to create and collaborate level creation with up to 8 players!
  • Player customization including changing character skin color (and upcoming clothings options such as head-wear and different shirts and pants)
  • Logic System that allows you to enable certain events and items based on triggers you place in your level!

Planned Features:
  • Publishing finished levels so user don't have access to the level editor content and can only play in the play mode.
  • A central hub to upload your published levels filled with screenshots, comments, and ratings for you to share your awesome creative levels!
  • Fully realized multiplayer with different level types for multiplayer-centric levels such as Capture The Flag, Deathmatch, and Races.
  • A story mode where you will play through to get the backstory of the Glia and they're purpose for creating dream worlds. It will include collectibles that you will use to either customize your player or to create in your levels.

Physics and retro make for an awesome combination.

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

Good luck with the development!

Hello! To clear up any concerns regarding the art and gameplay features.

There will be a campaign included in the final version of the game which is where players will unlock most of the tools and costumes they can use in the game. (I want to make sure the level editor is fully functional before i implement story levels otherwise i might have to continously recreate them).

And as for the graphical style, yes! I completely agree with you guys there are different art styles that clash with each other (most notably the background "stock photos"). I'm hoping to bring on a pixel artist to the team to work on materials, objects, animations, and background art. The current backgrounds are placeholders and will definitely be changed before release. If you are great with pixel art and looking to help out (we can discuss payment and the sorts privately) then let me know!
