Merlin's Marble - In Development, video sneak peek

Just a quick post on an upcoming game, shooting for a May release date.

This is a pretty early look - a lot of elements are unfinished or missing from what you'll see in the final game, but I think it gives a good overview of what to expect.

I'm getting close to submitting the game to Apple, hopefully within a week!

The game is a combination marble roller / 3D platform puzzler. You play as Merlin (in his transformed marble state) through village, castle and dungeon levels.

Game elements include keys, gates, hidden objects, elevators, platforms, ledges, enemies, spikes, awesome Unity lightmapping, great music and sound effects, a final Boss Fight and more

The idea was to combine elements from games like Gears and HydroTilt, with the look and feel of adventure platformers like Assassin's Creed. Basically, to mashup the kinds of games I like to play and see if something new can come from it. Overall, I'm really happy with how it's turning out and think people will enjoy it.

A few behind the scenes Editor views:







The game is a quick play (depending on your skill with marble puzzlers), with 18 levels. And it will be be FREE.
