Mad Aubergine is a game developed by an italian "team" (a 17 years old guy) with the intent of making a game full of weapons, enemies, gibs and other stuff. The game born after his dad played Cave Story: he was really amazed by the story, the cool weapons and how the game was made by a single developer. Probably, the game is also affected by many Nintendo games such as Kirby and Metroid. Currently it has just 2 game modes that don't include Story mode (it'll appear soon): ARENA and STADIUM. In ARENA mode, the player will face big waves of enemies and the goal of this mode is to survive as long as possible. In STADIUM mode, the player will be spawned into a random generated map and, while he explores it, he must kill every enemy on the stage just to make the highest score possible. NOTE: the game is developed just in the main developer's free time.
A new release of MadAubergine is here!: - lots of graphics improvements and changes. - minor bug fixing. - STADIUM level generation is faster and cooler!

Yes guys, a new version of the game is out:
- we have changed most of the tileset we used before, making them cooler and that fit better the game's style.
- we have fixed some little bugs.
- we have improved STADIUM's level generation by making it more efficient, fast and less buggy.
this procedure also put randomly some decoration elements around the map, just to make it richer of details
Another thing we are proud to announce is that now YOU can submit your custom map to us!!
Building a custom map is really simple:
1)get a pixel editing program like GIMP, PyxelEdit or even paint.
2)create a new image big as you want (remember that each pixel corresponds to a tile!)
3)paint it! black pixels are solid tiles, other colors are non colliding tiles like decorations or air.
there are actually two ways to send us your map:
-send it with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
-make a tweet containing the hashtag #MadAubergine and the url of the image or an attachment
here's a sample (it's really tiny):
