This Fan's Project Lets You Build Your Own Mega Man Levels

This Fan's Project Lets You Build Your Own Mega Man Levels”

All you need is several years coding experience, a dedicated team and a character who skirts the line of homage and blatant intellectual property theft to see it through to the end. There are also two all-new powers, which will let players turn into a flying tornado or create a shot-reflecting shield. As long as Capcom doesn't feel compelled to make an official Mega Man Maker they might let this little fan project live on, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Like Nintendo's Mario Maker, Mega Maker will allow users to create and share levels, and is scheduled to release this Friday.

Players can craft everything from traditional stages to insane series of puzzle chambers, anything goes!

Will you be jumping into Mega Maker when it comes out?

From the short look in the trailer, the game seems really cool.

Mega Maker will use assets from Mega Man 1 through 6, over a hundred different tile sets twelve robot masters, and an original chiptune-inspired soundtrack from Cosmic Gem.The creators have put together a Patreon to cover server costs.

"The game has been in development since September 2016, starting out as a one-person project but gradually becoming larger and larger", the creators say on Mega Maker's website. Even after the initial release, development on this game will not yet be finished.

There's been a lot of news about fan-made recreations, tributes, or sequels to popular game series, and recently, a trailer showed off a pretty awesome Mega Man fan game that's coming this week. Even though it's not officially Capcom endorsed, it sounds like something that shouldn't be missed.

Although I highly doubt that that'll actually happen.
