Glitch Strikers gets Greenlit!
Answers to Common Questions
Description
Release date: Summer 2017 (Hyper Manni Pals in Early Access)
Experience everything you love from the 8-bit era and live out your fantasies of playing as characters that travel across games. Glitch Strikers is the amalgam of dreams for gamers that grew up playing 8-bit video games.

Glitch Strikers is the spiritual successor to the popular fan game, Super Mario Bros. Crossover (SMBC)[explodingrabbit.com], and is the result of a successful Kickstarter (Note that most of the info on the Kickstarter page is no longer accurate.)

Fast Facts
  • Created by Jay Pavlina (Super Mario Bros. Crossover) and Matt Kap (Castle in the Darkness, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth)
  • Has been in the works for nearly 5 years :*( ... was rebooted to this version 8 months ago :)
  • Play as characters inspired by legends from the 8-bit era
  • Play through original games inspired by your favorite retro classics
  • First episode (Hyper Manni Pals) will be available on Early Access in a few months
  • The direction of the game will take community feedback into account, as we did with SMBC
  • Made in Unity
  • Steam is first platform, but more will follow
  • Everything is 4 player local coop!!!
    • Separate trailer will be released in the near future featuring multiplayer
    • Extremely likely that online multiplayer will be added... game was built from the ground up for online... still a lot of extra work though, so it will probably not be in first version :D

Glitch Strikers follows the story of Manni and his friends as they travel across games to investigate the cause of the mysterious glitches. Each game world they visit will be an original concept, but many will take inspiration from classic retro games. They all will include modern gameplay mechanics and features, and they’ll be playable by a variety of characters.

The game will be released in episodes. The first part, Hyper Manni Pals, takes its inspiration from Super Mario Bros. Crossover. It will be released on Steam early access in Summer 2017. Later episodes will include visiting game worlds that the other characters originate from. Some of them are shown in the trailer.

I hope this game is free, I'd love to play it with my bro, plus I never really experienced the other retro classics except mario

I'd like to think that the reason for the name Glitch Strikers is that not the game, but the characters themselves are a glitch, being copies of our favorite Nintendo Characters.

We ended up changing more than expected so it's not going to be out this summer. The game will be better, but it will be a bit longer. Follow @ExplodingRabbit on twitter for updates.
