A 2D fast-paced platformer, Mekazoo from The Good Mood Creators is scheduled to launch in Q4 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC.

Controlling up to five different mekanimals, each with their own skills – the speedy armadillo, acrobatic, springy wallaby, sturdy panda, and high-flying pelican – Mekazoo focuses on free-flowing speedy gameplay. With the mekanimals coming in pairs, you can switch between the two at any time as you make your way through the levels to defeat the insectoid army.

In terms of story, the armadillo wakes up to find his friends have been transformed into gigantic mekanimal bosses. By defeating them, those mekanimals are unlocked as playable characters.

Creative Director Jarrett Slavin talked about the game:

Mekazoo is inspired by the platformer classics we spent every second with after school, like Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country. We are combining all the lessons learned from those masterpieces and the innovative ideas we’ve spent decades brainstorming to deliver the game we wish existed since we were kids.
