Description

Mushroom Crusher Extreme is a retro-styled arcade-action game, in which you take control of Zenon, a mage with a mission to repel an invasion of giant Shrooms on his native archipelago. Battle against time and use your elemental magic to vanquish the invaders before it's too late! Along with retro visuals, Mushroom Crusher Extreme follows old-school gameplay sensibilities: simple on the outside, complex on the inside. Though unforgiving to beginners, understanding its mechanics will lead to a satisfying experience.

History

Mushroom Party was formed to realize Mushroom Crusher Extreme, a game first conceived way back in the 2011 Global Game Jam. Ever since then, different versions of MCE have been worked on by different team formations made up of game development students of Kajaani University of Applied Sciences. Whenever there was a chance, be it project studies or work practice, the game was pushed forward to the direction most appropriate at the times. The sporadic development was finally kicked into full steam, when in 2015, a local game company Team Jolly Roger offered the workspace and publishing help to bring the project to its conclusion. In Spring 2016 the game successfully passed through Steam Greenlight, gaining support of the community. From October 2016, the still-in-development MCE was released on Steam Early Access, finding its first fans in wide world. From a simple jam game to a story driven experience to finally a fun arcade-style action game, Mushroom Crusher Extreme is now at last out of Early Access and fully launched on Steam!

  • "Mushroom Crusher Extreme is a wonderful, action packed, top-down game, and while it may be hard to see whereabouts you’re heading sometimes due to the perspective of the game, it’s action, and originality is something to be proud off. I love jumping back on and trying to get through the sheer size of achievements they have included, and the challenging levels that really test your skills."
