Make and share your own Mega Man levels!
July 15, 2017 5:50 AM   Subscribe

The just-released (and unfortunately Windows-only) Mega Maker allows players to use a simple interface to build and share Mega Man levels using selected assets from the original games. There's a trailer here and you might want to read this interview with the creator about his process, comparisons to Mario Maker, and why he's not concerned about the possibility of a DMCA takedown.

I'm definitely hoping to see some folks posting their level IDs here.

I, uh, should've mentioned that this is free and not a commercial product in any way.

Thank you! I had no idea this was a thing; I'll definitely post levels here once I've played around with it!

A shame it's Windows only or I'd be all over it.

This is so cool! I really hope Capcom's lawyers don't decide it needs to be C&D'd.

Redditors report some success, some failure in wine.

I have to say, it would be neat if you could modify robot master behaviors. Maybe using blockly or something.

My kid was so excited about this he woke up early today. He was able to get it working fine on my Mac with Wine.

I'm given to understand that Mega Maker is basically a UI and map sharer for Mega Engine, which is far more powerful but also harder to use. That might be a way to go if you want more control.

I just came in here to say that this is an excellent post. And also, Mega Man 2 is one of the greatest games of all time.

I made a level called Nova Akropola. The ID is 24482.
