Now you can save the day in even more ridiculous ways!
Hi! I’m Sos Sosowski, the creator and solo developer behind McPixel 3. I am excited to announce that this march, you will be able to enjoy all new adventures of the titular hero on Xbox! But first, let me tell you more about the game, because there’s a whole lot to do there!
Is This the Way to Save the Day?
McPixel is not your regular superhero. While he tries to save his own skin in the most unpredictable way, his adventures usually end in absolutely hilarious failures. You control the titular character and explore over 100 tiny levels trying to find the right solution by using and combining anything you can find. Every solution has an outcome, but there’s only one good answer so you’ll never get bored!
Each of the levels has a time limit before the calamity happens, and the levels are arranged in rounds, that you circle through until you finish all of them so that you are never bored being stuck in a single place. In these rounds you will travel around the world, go back in time, perform in TV shows, get shrunken down to the size of a pebble and more!
The Mind-Bending Genre-Bending!
Every once in a while, during your adventures, you will come across a minigame. The minigames are simple, and require not only puzzle solving, but a bit of dexterity as well. They can be found in the weirdest places and come in a whole palette of genres! We have shoot’em ups, beat’em ups, driving, FPSes, platformers, on-rails, QTEs, and more! All in a full software-rendered retro style glory!
Welcome to McBurg!
The game takes place in the city of McBurg, which you explore to find new adventures. Finding different outcomes in adventures yield coins which you can then use to unlock even more levels! Additionally, a lot of tiny gags and secrets are hidden throughout the city, including the ability to change into different costumes you have come across while saving the day!
During your adventures you will often come across Steve, who can be found in the weirdest places, prompting you to join him on a short adventure. Steve is not like McPixel, however, and does not save the day. He is just a normal guy, who will go fishing, cooking, painting or summoning demons, among other things.
McPixel Visits Grandma!
In a brand-new update, McPixel gets a letter from grandma telling him to come for a visit! Join McPixel on his visit to grandma’s place and make sure she actually survives the unfortunate encounters McPixel puts her through in a new never-before seen level pack!
In addition to that, two new minigames and a brand new Steve level wait for you in this level pack!
The Classic Remastered Additionally, you will be able to play the original six levels, first ever made for McPixel in 2011, remastered to match McPixel 3’s style and graphics! These six levels were the first ever to be created during a 48-hour game jam! This is where McPixel all started! Grab McPixel 3 now and join this crazy explosive adventure!
One moment you’re stuck in a speeding train headed towards the cliff; the other, you’re in a falling plane. Sometimes you need to win an impossible-to-win soccer match, and the other, you’re a dinosaur trying to hide from a meteorite. Stuck in a flaming house? Sandwiched between two battling armies? Certainly not a problem for McPixel! 100 levels of fast-paced action are waiting for you! Minigames
Sometimes, the usual adventure style will get interrupted by genre-bending minigames. Ranging from racing, shooting, fighting, and sports to even platforming or FPS! The game offers over 20 minigames scattered around the world of McPixel! Coins and stamps
McPixel is not all about just saving the day but having fun trying to come up with the craziest possible solutions. And for every solution, you will be rewarded with coins! Find all solutions in a level to get the gold prize and some extra coins! You can use them to unlock new levels! Also, everyone loves coins, right? They’re shiny and golden and spinning! No reason not to have some more! McBurg
The game takes place in the city of McBurg. Explore the city and find different adventures! Some of the paths in the city are blocked and will require you to spend coins to move forward and access new levels! The city will get populated with characters and items from the levels you already visited as you play. You will also be able to don some of the costumes you found while playing. On the edge of the city upon a grassy hill, you can see a Devolver vault, full of gold, looming over McBurg. So, if you ever need a lot of coins, maybe it’s time to pay Fork Parker a visit? Steve
Sometimes, during your adventures, you will find Steve. Steve can be in the weirdest and most unexpected of places, and finding him will transport you to the Steve level. Steve is not like McPixel and doesn’t specialize in saving the day. He’s just some guy, doing stuff. Like fishing, cooking, driving a car, or summoning demons. You know, just the average guy kind of stuff. Key Features:
