After 8 Years of Development, Mega Man 2.5D has Released

Whelp, mark this down as a fan project that may just stand a chance at survival. The fine folks over at PetersJoStrand.com have spent the better part of eight years developing Mega Man 2.5D.  Here’s how they describe the game:

Mega Man 2.5D is a fangame developed by a small team of obsessive Mega Man fans. It began in 2009 as an animated proof-of-concept. This got a surprising amount of positive response, and because of this a couple of us got together with the goal of making a playable game out of it.

There are mainly two things that set Mega Man 2.5D apart from most other Mega Man games. The first is the co-op mode, where two players team up to take on Dr. Wily. The other is the use of camera perspective changes which is featured a lot in the single-player mode of the game.

The launch trailer above shows off how the game looks and feels, along with describing all the new features. This is a really impressive project, to say the least. You can download it here.

    I played one level and died at the boss. This is a great game—highly recommend it.

    looks epic but frak I wouldn’t make it past the first screen I’m bloody awful at this series the best I ever did was get to the big yellow boss in the first game, and maybe in game 2 and/or 3 i beat 1 or 2 guys. it’s just, megaman is cool but I’ll stick to the legends series.
    great job though looks bloody amazing.
