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.

@WeedBlunt Don't give up the faith; I bought TimeSpinner a long time before its release, (enough that I forgot about it being a game; (I played Terraria & TF2 instead) and before I remember, *BAM* one of the BEST (SNES-Styled) MetroidVanias I've ever played. Give it time, even better, forget about it for a while; but when u check back, if it's been long enough, *GET ON The Dev's ASSES AND REMIND THEM!*

Right now Exploding Rabbit is working on porting Super Mario Crossover to WebGL due to Adobe Flash Player dying in the near future. For the past year on their twitter it was just tweets of silly bugs they encountered with the amount of tweets slowing down to once a month by Feburary. Their last tweet was from April 22nd and we haven't heard anything from them since.

I'd say this game is stuck in development hell, so it could well be dead or not come out for a very, very long time. It is sad, because I would have liked to play it.

Yeah, this game is probably dead.

For anybody else who was interested in this game, don't hold your breath. Glitch Strikers was the second? third? attempt at starting over Super Retro Squad from scratch, and it's almost been two years now.

Still no gameplay footage, and they're still doing basic engine work. This will end in failure just like all the other projects started by Exploding Rabbit. I should know, I've been following since the beginning. Very sad.

By that I mean, Nintendo tends to be uh, very proactive with their Cease and Desist orders.

I'm a Nintendo fan, a really really big Nintendo fan. But they're definitely one of the most litigious companies in the industry.
