The full version of “Mighty Switch Force! Academy” launches today, exclusively on STEAM!
Its training day for new recruits at Planet Land Police Academy, and no one is more eager to earn their badge than Patricia Wagon. But when her training module goes haywire, Patty finds herself at the mercy of holographic endurance courses-gone-wrong! These deviously designed drills were meant to push any cadet’s skills to the max. But with the safety protocols disabled, Cadet Wagon will need to rely on her pellet gun and wits just to survive the day! The only means of escape is to pass the tests by apprehending simulations of public enemy #1, the Hooligan Sisters. Will Patty survive her trials and prove that this is the job she was made for?
Mighty Switch Force! Academy is an homage to classic arcade games where all the action takes place on a single screen. Part party game, part puzzler, all action!
Mighty Switch Force! Academy recalls the glory days of Nintendo Power magazine, which featured huge spreads that showed off entire level layouts on the page. We wanted to see what it would look like to play a puzzle-based pixel game where you could see the whole game at 1:1 ration on a 1080p screen. We tried it and loved the results. From there it was a deluge of inspiration — implementing classic screen-wrap (a la Pac-Man), high concept levels designed entirely around fun play patterns, 4 player versus mode, and local multi-player on every level in the game. Previous titles of Mighty Switch Force! have grown to be speedrun games, and we wanted to see how the speedrunning community will embrace a 4-Player speedrunning game.
