XONE PS4

Marooners is an arcade social game for the XONE, PS4 and PC platforms. The production consists of a set of mini-games, between which we switch during the game. Up to six players can take part in the game, including AI-controlled bots.

Marooners is created by the Dutch studio M2H, which has worked on FPS Verdun and Tannenberg network shooters.

Mechanics

Before starting the game, each participant chooses a character, weapon and color. The available heroes are a comforting group consisting of a bearded wikinga, an Egyptian princess, a caveman or a diver in a full suit. In the arsenal you will find tridents, axes and macaws, but also, for example, umbrellas. New characters and weapons can be unlocked during the game.

Depending on the selected mode (Party or Arena), the primary task of players is to collect jewels or fight with other participants. Coins and precious crystals are scattered on the boards visited, as well as parcels providing additional power (e.g. increased speed, improved attack).

The exact mechanics of the game, however, varies depending on the mini-game in which the players are currently playing. Levels can be passed one by one, but you can also play in the mode, in which participants are moved between the minigames literally every few - dozen or so seconds. Drawing can send us, for example, to the arena, where both valuable objects and deadly boulders fall from the sky, to the ice islands, from which you can easily fall or be dropped, to the racetrack, where the running characters are threatened by the rolling giant balls, or to a two-dimensional level, vividly reminiscent of the cult Boulder Dasha, where we can destroy the blocks that make up the board to plunge into a maze full of treasure.

Play modes

Marooners includes single player mode and multiplayer mode for up to six players. In a single multiplayer session there may be participants who play locally and connect via the Internet. Free space can be filled with boots controlled by artificial intelligence. The game also offers Spectator mode (observer).

Technical issues

Marooners was created on the Unity engine. The game is equipped with a simple and colorful visual setting, and the characters of the characters are heavily exaggerated. Participating in minigames, we have the opportunity to visit locations with different graphic styles: there are basements with lava rivers, tropical boards with ruins of ancient temples, as well as arctic islands surrounded by icebergs.
