Play Splodey, the Platformer without a Jump Button, Today!

June 4, 2024

What’s this?  A surprise game announcement AND launch?!  That’s right, revealed at the OTK Game Expo today and live on Steam RIGHT NOW is Splodey, the platformer without a jump button!

Splodey is a pixel-art 2D platformer with a serious twist: it ditches the traditional jump mechanic for twin-stick controls and exploding potions that clear obstacles and send you flying through the air. Jumping is boring. Explosive propulsion and momentum? Yes, please!

Here’s more of what you can expect in this challenging platformer: 

  • Jump No More: In Splodey, you can’t jump; yet players are far from grounded. Momentum-based movements add depth to platforming gameplay and mastering the explosion-propulsion system rewards creativity and skill.
  • Maximum Challenge, Minimum Frustration: Instantly retry with infinite lives. Splodey will reward skilled players for creatively exploding their way through levels without frustrating players who seek accessibility for all skill levels.
  • Infinite Replayability in Varied Levels: Splodey’s platforming forms a tight and addicting gameplay loop, offering up instantly gratifying levels that are unique puzzles waiting to be solved.
  • Secrets Await Uncovering: Beyond Splodey’s 100 levels spread across its 4 main worlds is a bonus world featuring 25 extra levels. Additionally, 16 secret levels that can only be discovered through thorough exploration await players.

As if Splodey couldn’t get any cooler, it’s been made by a development team of only 3 people. Hear more from Lead Designer Liam Collins: 

“We’re a group of three friends, speedrunners, and Twitch streamers who honestly can’t believe that we’ve just launched a game. We very literally could not have done this without the help and support of the Mad Mushroom team and the creators at OTK, whose feedback has been instrumental in shaping Splodey. We hope platforming fans will love Splodey for its explosive movement, challenging levels, and loads of secrets.”

You can pick up Splodey on Steam now for a discount - only $9.80 for the next week. To share your best times and earn bragging rights with the community, be sure to join the Mad Mushroom Discord server.
