Fraymakers is a game that I’ve been following closely. It’s basically a pixel-art platform fighter with mechanics that are akin to the Smash Brothers series. The team behind it is McLeodGaming, who also made Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2.

This was originally slated to be released in Early Access on Steam back in August. It’s been pushed back and now we’ve finally got a release date: January 18th. It will include:

  • four characters
  • 20 assists
  • five stages
  • rollback netcode!
  • FrayTools – I’m guessing this is for modding purposes

Later on there will be five more characters, one DLC character, 30 assists, nine stages, and more. And it looks like according to their Kickstarter there will be a native Linux release in addition to the Mac OS and Windows versions.

I’m certainly looking forward to getting my hands on this game!
