Levelhead, the platformer sandbox from the DICE Award-nominated team at Butterscotch Shenanigans, announces plans to launch on Xbox once its Steam Early Access development (Windows PC) is complete.
The news comes alongside the huge 11th update for the game, which adds a new social likes system to player-made levels and debuts the new (and cheeky) trailer.
“This genre of game transforms players into designers and lets them experience the thrill of having a crowd of people play the things they make,” said Sam Coster, co-founder of Butterscotch Shenanigans. “Levelhead’s tools are powerful enough that people are making other games inside it, from metroidvanias to Pokemon battles. We’ve been blown away by the Early Access community’s creativity so far, and we can’t wait to see what the Xbox community does with the game at launch.”
Levelhead’s editor lets players use programmable switches, secrets, and hundreds of level components to create the level of their dreams (or other people’s nightmares). Players publish levels to the game’s “Marketing Department”, which is a built-in level exchange that allows players to boost their levels to the top of the charts and collect thousands of plays.
Levelhead is currently available on Steam Early Access for Windows PC. The title will be coming to both Xbox and Switch when it launches, and currently supports English, Chinese (simplified), Russian, German, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Spanish (Latin), Spanish (Spain), and Italian.
