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, {LINK REMOVED}, 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 had just did a playthrough video on SMBC and decided to check this out only to find the release date was 1017 and still no release. I'm highly dissapointed. :(

They had plans to port SMBC to Unity but they gone quiet in 2019, I want to blame Nintendon't.

Oh man I thought this came out ages ago. I would have thought it would be a relatively simple conversion from the flash game?

SMBC (Modern) was the shit.

It's the Second Half of 2020, and It looks like it's gonna come out when:
- Tetris Effect releases for Nintendo Switch
- Super Meat Boy Forever releases Platform-wide (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Epic Games Store)
- EA gets to re-release TETRIS for PS3 and PSP

@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.
