About this project
PROJECT ON HOLD. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.
We have decided to stop the Kickstarter campaign. We have to improve our campaign plan and reboot it very soon. Thanks to all the backers, we hope we can count with your help in the new campaign.
Massive Multiplayer Online Retro Platformer!
Super Micro Heroes is a massive platform game where up to 10 players compete to complete a given goal and get the maximum amount of coins at the end each level. The way has plenty of fun traps and items to collect and use over the rest of players, in a Mario Kart fashion. Players will try to make the other players lose, using items or pushing them into the level traps. The game is structured as a race: At the end of each level, survivors are ordered in a ranking based in the goals and coins they have gotten. Depending on their position in the ranking they will get points for a global ranking, the best of 4 levels will win the Cup.
Super Micro Heroes will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux. Also we are on Greenlight. Support us at the following link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=515681360
Who will become the next MicroKing?
Micro Land needs a new King, someone strong and smart capable to rule the lands with wisdom and heart. To find that person there is a special championship and the first price is the King’s Throne. Who will be the next in wear the crown?
Super Micro Heroes will include official online competitions and leagues, with unique prizes. We want to create the an indie e-Sport game, where any player can have a chance.
Takeshi's Castle Style!
Super Micro Heroes gameplay is crazy, with a bunch of players moving, jumping and using items that they pick-up in the scenario. The level will have plenty of traps and fun elements like inverted gravity zones, turbo cannons or moving platforms. Players have to avoid the traps or take advantage of them on each situation, while disturbing other players as much as possible.
Gaming experience will be always fun and unpredictable. A different goal will be given to players on each level, while they will be try to survive to avoid elimination, and collect the maximum amount of coins.
Be ready for plenty of mad situations, goals, characters and traps, nonsense and absurd humor.... we are taking inspiration from games like Wario Ware or Castle Crashers.
4 cups with 5 levels each. But we want to create more, take a look to the stretch goals.
If the initial levels are not enough we want to add a level editor to create your own levels and share them with everybody. Take a look to the stretch goals.
Everybody loves hats. They will be an important part of the game, each hat will give a special power to the Micro Heroes. Of course, you must collect all the hats in the game.
Our super artist is the great master of cuteness. We believe that there are still a lot to explore with 2D and pixel art graphics, don't they look so cute?
The game is aimed to be release on PC (Steam) first, for Windows, Mac and Linux. But if we get enough funds we'd love to work on exclusive versions for consoles:
PC (Steam - Win/Mac/Linux)
We're Nintendo Developers (and fans!) but we haven't had the opportunity to work on any project for Nintendo yet... SMH will look awesome on our Nintendo 3DS!
We'll add new exclusive modes for Wii U, like the Evil Mode, where the player with the main controller put traps to the other players in the level.
Mobile (iOS and Android)

The music will be an evolution of the retro-arcade, an alternative style that contrasts with the rest of the game. It has Electronic and Instrumental parts mixed with Chiptune, it's difficult to explain, better to hear it yourself:
For the sound effects we will use 8-bit retro style. Damian Sanchez, one of the best video games music composer in Spain, is already working on the game.

Risks and challenges
When you start developing a game is very difficult to estimate how much time it'll take to complete it, you never know how much time will take to iterate on ideas. So the biggest risk for Super Micro Heroes would be that it takes longer than we expect. And if that occurs, we would probably need to partner with a publisher to get the game finished.
However, we are confident that we will succeed. Mutant Games has an experienced team that has shipped more than 20 projects on different platforms. And Super Micro Heroes is our most beloved project, so we will do whatever it takes to complete it!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
