Team17 has today announced a partnership with developers Astral Pixel on the studio’s upcoming colourful pixel art platformer, Super Magbot. In development for PC, Super Magbot is the debut title from Astral Pixel, and sees players harness the power of magnetism to traverse and overcome unique and brutally puzzling levels.
As the eponymous Super Magbot, players must harness the power of magnetic forces to navigate deadly platforming environments, in a bid to save his home planet of Mag Tek.
Daniel Guzmán Cerón, Lead Programmer, Astral Pixel, said:
“Super Magbot is the result of working hand in hand with my brother over the past two years. It has been a truly self-learning experience in every way, and we couldn’t be happier to have Team17 on board as our publisher, their legacy of working with indie games makes them a great fit for our game. We have worked hard to create a refreshing take on platforming gameplay and we can’t wait to see players enjoying Super Magbot’s challenges.”
