Neanderfall was created for the GMTK Game Jam 2020 based on the theme: "Out of Control".
Neal the Neanderthal is out of control, running for his life. The player has to use the objects provided to build a safe path to get him from start to finish.
Players can also create and share their own puzzles without leaving the game. There's an in-game level editor, and you can share/play others' levels via mod.io :O
Neanderfall is a Unity game that supports user generated content and was developed in 48 hours during the 2020 GMTK Game Jam. Bilal Akil and Ethan Close created Neanderfall with the goal of crowd-sourcing their level development by enabling modding. They chose mod.io because of its instant setup and a Unity Plugin which takes minutes to get running. Within 48 hours they had a level editor built, which used mod.io to provide the storage, search and distribution of mods in-game.
For Bilal and Ethan, choosing mod.io was an easy decision. After being exposed to the sheer volume of user generated content seen on games such as Totally Awesome Battle Simulator (TABS) and Snowrunner, they knew they had to use mod.io.
What they weren’t prepared for was how easy it was to use mod.io as their modding platform of choice. The pre-existing Unity plugin makes enabling mod support time-efficient and user-friendly. When we interviewed the game creators, Bilal (game developer) had this to say: “We really enjoyed the smooth, minimal user experience” and “the Unity plugin was very helpful as it solved a lot of problems we would have had to deal with such as authentication”.
mod.io solves game developer headaches such as hosting, moderation, authentication, discovery, tagging, rating, community, marketplace, in-game integration and more. As the game developer, all you have to provide is the mod creation tools and the ability to play the mods. As such, we are similar to the Steamworks Workshop, however, mod.io also works on Steam, Epic, GOG, console and mobile which is perfect if you want a cross-platform solution.
Key features include:
Over 37 games use our platform to power more than 200,000 mod installs daily. Our aim is to increase the engagement and entertainment your players receive by enabling modders to share creative and captivating new content using mod.io.
It’s as easy as four simple steps:

If Bilal and Ethan can do this in 48 hours with a fully functional game, so can you. You can find us on Discord if you have questions.
