Game-making game SuperMash available now on console
Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One players can begin mashing games!
New York, NY – May 8, 2020 — Developer Digital Continue has today launched SuperMash, its zany game-making game on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In this title, players are given the creative freedom to randomly generate games (called Mashes), which results in a wide variety of unexpected genre hybrids.
Through positive and negative “glitches,” SuperMash creates unique and unpredictable scenarios by altering the mechanics of the Mashes the game gives you. Additionally, players can control certain elements of what they play by applying Dev Cards, which represent a generous selection of characters, enemies, environments, and more. Players can share the Mashes they find with their friends by giving them its unique playable code. The game’s story mode takes place in a video game store where players receive quests by assisting customers and stocking the shelves with the best Mashes the game can generate.
In SuperMash players can:
Mash together six unique 2D game genres, including Metrovania, Shoot ‘em Up, Stealth, Platformer, JRPG, and Action Adventure. Each can be combined with itself or one of the other genres.
Further customize Mashes generated with collectable in-game Dev Cards, which allow them to pick and choose specific characters, enemies, worlds, and more every time they play.
Run a video game shop stocked with retro hybrids of player-created games.
Share their favorite combinations with the world through unique codes generated for each Mash.
Players can purchase SuperMash on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, or Nintendo eShop for $19.99.
