Levelhead, the award-winning platformer maker from Butterscotch Shenanigans, launched in late April on the Epic Games Store, Xbox, Xbox Game Pass, the Windows Store, Nintendo Switch, Steam, the App Store, and the Google Play Store, including Play Pass.


Levelhead is the first maker game to feature a level exchange, wherein players can boost their levels to the top of the charts just by playing other community-made levels. That means any player can get their creation seen by the masses -- and collect thousands of plays and followers in the process.


“When we set out to make Levelhead, we never dreamed it would become this complex.” Said Sam Coster, co-founder of Butterscotch Shenanigans. “We have players building metroidvanias, working calculators, and even recreations of other games. And they keep coming back because they know the hard work and creativity they put into their levels will be seen and appreciated by thousands of others. Some members of our community have already spent more than 1,000 hours of building and playing levels!”


Levelhead’s editor lets players use programmable switches, secrets, and hundreds of items to create complex levels, from standard platformers to pinball machines. Once beaten by its creator, a player-made Level can be published to the world, where it’s accessible regardless of language or platform. Butterscotch’s “Crossplatforminess” allows players to seamlessly move their works-in-progress to the cloud and continue editing them from any platform they own the game on.


Levelhead was in Early Access on Steam for the past 12 months, where it earned an overall user score of 96% and won three awards.


Levelhead is available now on Xbox, Switch, the Epic Games Store, and Steam for $19.99, and on the App Store and Google Play for $6.99. The game is also available to subscribers of Xbox Game Pass and Google Play Pass. It currently supports English, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Russian, German, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Spanish (LATAM), Spanish (Spain), Italian, Japanese, and Korean.
