Customizable platform fighter Fraymakers is out in Early Access

By - | Views: 18,614

With some really slick animations, the customizable platform fighter Fraymakers has launched in Early Access on Steam with Linux support. It went into Early Access on January 19th that somehow I forgot about, even though I purchased it and played it — woops. I'm only human right?

Following the success of the Kickstarter that back in 2020 that gave them $364,922 in funding (before taxes and expenses ate into it that is), it's nice to see it out and so far it's showing plenty of potential. Some of the key selling points on this is the varied cast of indie game characters, along with the custom content creation system that you can easily download extras for in the Steam Workshop.

Game Features:

  • Easy to pick up, hard to master - Fraymakers is designed to be friendly to new players and challenging and expressive for veteran players. You’re going to have a ton of fun whether you want a quick round with your friends or you’re looking to climb the leaderboards.
  • Rollback Netcode - If you’ve been part of the fighting game community over the past few years, you know that rollback is the gold standard for fighting game netcode. We’ve prioritized and designed around rollback from the outset of development, meaning that Fraymakers will provide the smoothest possible online experience.
  • Full Movesets - With over 80 animations per character, we've skipped nothing! Each character comes complete with every motion and attack you've come to expect from a platform fighter as well as some brand new techniques.
  • Assists - Choose from a massive selection of indie characters to unleash an attack, fire a projectile, buff your character, or inflict a special status effect on your foes.
  • ...And Infinite Expandability! - We designed both the game and our custom content editor to be accessible and powerful. We want the process of creating your own content to be simple and fun. Whether you're a player or a creator, this means that the possibilities are endless.

There's already a good amount of extra content being loaded up in the Steam Workshop, someone even added Trunks from Dragon Ball Z which I naturally had to try out.

So far at least on Desktop Linux (Fedora) it works quite well. Controller support is a little odd, as sometimes my controller needs a good minute and some button mashing before it's actually detected, and other times the vibration won't stop for a while. The usual expected Early Access release bugs. 

Looks fantastic though, the official characters have some gorgeous style and animations done on them, I only hope the developers can keep up the progress on it now it has people wanting more.
