Platformines, Magiko Gaming's procedurally-generated platformer featuring exploration, RPG and shooter elements, set in a huge and hostile underground world is now available as free PC open beta. Go get it here.
We've been covering Platformines for months, revelling in each new update and interview. Since Magiko are the team behind the PLATFORMANCE and Who Is God! series, you'd better believe that their latest project is going to be something very special indeed. New trailer and details after the break.
In "Platformines", players embark in a journey to discover the mysteries of a gigantic network of mines full of enemies, traps and treasures. "Platformines" offers seamless (no ingame loading) randomly generated worlds to explore, in a quest that takes from 6 to 10 hours to complete. Discover hidden chests, grab bags of gold and choose from a gazillion of different weapon variations like pistols, shotguns, machineguns and bazookas to blast your way to the end. You run, jump and shoot in a tightly designed environment, with the 2D hero you have previously customized from thousands of combinations : so you could look like a sharp adventurer, a nasty member of the mob or a lazy treasure hunter. RPG elements include trading and upgrading your gear so your stats are better and you can go further to tackle the more difficult parts of the mines. The game music mixes chiptune versions of compositions from the classical masters like Tchaikovsky and Rossini, with ambient atmospheric chilling tracks.
