Hey everyone, this is my current game project Mech Mania! We're trying to recapture the fun I had with friends playing mad multiplayer mini-games and bring it to Steam!
We're still pretty early in development and I would really
appreciate your feedback and support. I know I haven't put much useful information up yet but more will follow shortly!

We have tried to make it simple and competitive. As it stands the game has 15 mini-games, some are unique to it while others are re-imagined or expanded versions of existing mini-games. All of the games are adversarial and range from tactical to button mashing finger breakers.
You will be able to play online, over a LAN or on a Shared Screen for up to four players, either human or bots.
Inspired by games like Mario Party, Bomberman, Micro Machines, Pokemon Stadium, Fusion Frenzy, Super Monkey Ball, Time Splitters 2 and Alien Hominid.
The games are split into three distinct areas; Destruction, Collection and Race. Each of these has several mini-games within it. In total there will be six arenas, each with its own unique look. We hope to expand the game further after release.
These screens are very early and lack working GUIs and most of their mechanics!

The first release will be in August, though we plan to have some sort of demo before then!
We'll be trying to get it onto Steam through Green Light as Big Picture and Steam Box would be ideal to support our games local shared screen game play!Platforms

The game is fully funded thanks to a grant we pitched for called Starter for 10 http://www.starterfor10.biz/
it was pretty intense! If you are based in the UK I really recommend trying for it. If you get the grant you are allowed to pursue further funding e.g. a Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaign too!
