Looks like Super Meat Boy Meets Super Mario Maker
Butterscotch Shenanigans is the studio behind Crashlands, a crafting RPG adventure. Crashlands came out in January 2016, now Butterscotch Shenanigans is preparing for their newest title LevelHead. LevelHead appears to be a 2D platformer filled with chaos and deathtraps, reminiscent of Super Meat Boy. The player controls a small robot. Multiple characters or skins appear to be available. Butterscotch Shenanigans released an announcement trailer today for LevelHead’s arrival on Early Access next month.
The first half of the trailer shows off the platforming, various power-ups, and combat techniques. There are a lot of quick cuts between clips, not unlike an action-movie trailer, making it tough to accurately interpret. At one point, there is a four player co-op clip which, in this game, appears to be a recipe for chaos. The second half shows off the level creator mode, not unlike the one in Super Mario Maker. This mode also supports co-op, so you and your friends can have a shared vision of the perfect level. Placement of pick-ups, removal of walls and floors, and the addition of traps and enemies are all fair game in this mode.
The trailer is an announcement for Steam Early Access, but Butterscotch Shenanigans also has plans to release LevelHead on Nintendo Switch, iOS and GooglePlay. No word on an official release date, but we will keep our eyes open. More details including a developer blog is available at bscotch.net.
