Scheduled to be launched in Q1 2016, Mekazoo is a throwback 2D platformer with fully 3d worlds that can be explored and conquered with a kinetically diverse cast of Mekanimals: the speedy armadillo, acrobatic frog, springy wallaby, powerful panda and high-flying pelican. Players will use pairs of Mekanimals to swing, boost, bounce, climb, and fly through fast and flowy platforming environments.
In cooperative multiplayer, each player controls a single mekanimal, the inactive player controlling only the "switch" button to transform to their animal, creating dynamic moments of teamwork and cooperation. Overcoming certain obstacles requires the ability specific to one character in the duo, so in order to advance through each level players must alternate between the two characters. Oftentimes players will need to quickly switch back and forth between both mekanimals to progress, making proper timing essential when tagging characters in and out.
Mekazoo is being developed by The Good Mood Creators for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U - eight visuals and a trailer are available.
