Hoplegs is a different kind of platformer about a moving box and four legs with unconventional controls. Each of the four buttons on your gamepad where you usually jump, interact, crouch and change weapons are now your different legs. Master this unique way of controlling your character to navigate through a large variation of levels created by the developer or the community!
Want to see if your friend can also master the controllers? Then go ahead and put your friendship to the test and play through the co-op levels together.
Let your imagination run wild when creating custom levels in the level editor. Do you want to build a puzzle level with switches that can control almost anything, a space inspired level with zero gravity or do you want to create an impossible mountain to climb? With a wide variety of objects to use there's really nothing that's stopping your creative ideas! Create singleplayer, coop or party levels!
Play as a young wizard who's about to move his house closer to the king's castle but during the boring phase of packing your bags, a spell accidentally hits a magical mirror and bounce back. Our young wizard turns into a moving box so it's now your job to help him get back to normal.
Sadly this accident is very common so you're not alone as a medieval moving box. You need to push each other away, stand on top of each other and do more unspeakable things in order to overcome difficult obstacles that's ahead of you.
Are you fast and good at climbing in video games? Yes? But are you good in a game with unconventional controllers?! Well then I wish you the best of luck on your road to the top!
Unlock and customize your hat, face, box and legs to make the most stylish moving box on the market. Be sure to keep your eyes open for rare items in hidden areas!
Local play for 2-4 players in different classic and silly game modes. Get ready for hilarious moments together and make sure to not end friendships over this.
… also a dance mat?! That would be stupid.. right? Don't do this you will risk hurting your legs!
Nathan will make sure that if you cry of happiness, fear, sadness or rage then you'll at least bounce your head with the music.
I've been up to some new stuff during the announcement and the week that followed!
Some general editor improvements and some visual buttons on screen. I've looked over the planning and I think my next step is to prepare a demo, not for a specific event or so but I think it's good in general to have something playable in hand if something comes up.
I've removed the debug colors and tried to add some icons depending on the controller that you're using.. at least that's the end goal. Right now I'm using the Xbox buttons.
So I've got support to switch between different input icons (not sure what I should call them). Let me know if you have any other cool ideas or improvements on these.
Undo & Redo
I just got this part done and I think I introduced some bugs along with it. But it's an important one! Undo and Redo for the editor, I've never done something like this before but the way I'm doing it is that I'm storing the entire level in a list. So instead of saving it to different files I can quickly swap between any of the stored versions in this list.
Here you can see it in action, the shaking is the current level being scaled down and the new one scaled in.
One thing that I'm trying to achieve is an easy workflow for the players when they're making their levels. So the castle tiles and backgrounds will automatically tile no matter where you place it. Here's one of my testers level. Next step toward a castle environment is more props which is on it's way. So this is the barebone of how a castle could look like.
And as you know, the game can be wishlisted on Steam and I'm developing the game live on Twitch every Tuesday and Wednesday!
Have a great day!
