Madcap Castle – Steam GreenLight Trailer:

Along the 150 levels, the players will control a mage in a castle crowded of obstacles. Dodging enemies and finding secrets. Trying to restore his memory and powers.

Also, the creation of Madcap Castle is 48 hour project. This was during BaconGameJam10 by Diel Mormac (@dielmormac). Which ended up winning the competition. After that, Diel sought partners in the game development community. Those who would like to continue the development and turn it into a full product. Then joined by Rubens Stephan, Guilherme Abel, Mauricio and Alegretti. So now we are creating up to the full release. And I have to admit, the game looks interesting. Since the XBOX 360 has support. I’m sure the Steam Controller will work just as well.
