“MagiCats Builder looks like a killer platforming game in its own right, with clean visuals and great animations akin to something like the recent Rayman games.” – Jared Nelson (TouchArcade)
MagiCats Builder Now Available on Steam, Android & iOS
Wield the power of coding and create new worlds for FREE starting today
PARIS – July 10, 2018 – Dreamz Studio’s MagiCats Builder – a sandbox platformer that allows anyone to create their very own 2D levels though a visual coding engine – is launching today! Gamers of all ages can design and build a beautifully-animated platformer like Rayman and Wonder Boy for free on mobile devices and desktop PCs – starting with iOS, Android and Steam.
In MagiCats Builder, you can drag-and-drop to your heart’s content, define behaviors (boss patterns and more) – and place hazards/platforms in a simple, user-friendly manner. MagiCats Builder also includes a virtually infinite number of user-created levels for those long, sleepless summer nights. Talented designers are encouraged to share their best work with the community, and join in on the fun!
“The idea for MagiCats Builder began when a couple of teenagers stopped by our booth during an event in Paris,” says Thibault Louis-Lucas, founder of Dreamz Studio. “After checking out our games, they asked a barrage of questions like ‘How does it all work?” and ‘Can you create anything you want?’ Their excitement caught us by surprise, since our target market skewed much younger. We realized then and there that a common dream for most gamers is to have the ability to create games on their own. The rest is history: Today, MagiCats Builder is out of Steam Early Access – and it’s available to everyone who ever wanted to design and build their own 16- or 32-bit platformer!”
The Story So Far
In MagiCats Land, coding was a long-forgotten, mysterious skill – an elegant tool for a more civilized age. But the moment Caramel the Cat embraced the power of code, he was instantly transformed into a MagiCat – determined to master the art of coding to share it with the world! Caramel soon gets busy populating the entire world with his creations – but he begins to grow bored … and turns to his fellow MagiCats for help. And lo and behold, this elite group of MagiCats all begin building “Catstructions” together – challenging one another to gather characters and create bigger and better Catstructions. Every MagiCat that plays a Catstruction gets rewarded by the International Confurderation of MagiCat Amusement (ICMA for the insiders) for encouraging other MagiCats to get out and exercise. Competition is fierce: Outstanding Catstructions are ranked based on popularity on a weekly basis – and as you’d expect, all MagiCats long to be #1 on the list.
