That’s right folks, Fraymakers, our brand new platform fighter, has arrived on Kickstarter!
Head over to the campaign to check it out:
We’ve spent thousands upon thousands of hours behind the scenes over the past 2+ years in order to present to you what we’ve created. We hope you’ll agree that Fraymakers is truly worthy of being McLeodGaming’s next flagship game. But we’ll need your help in order to make it a reality, and that’s where you come in. The first 48 hours are crucial to the success of a crowd-funding campaign, so if you want to help us pave the way to a post-Flash future for McLeodGaming and participate in bringing Fraymakers to life, please back this project! The more backers we get at the start of the campaign, the better our momentum will be, and the better our chances to get featured by Kickstarter are.
Already backed, or not in a position where you can? You can help this project spread across the internet if you share the link to the Kickstarter campaign with as many people as possible! This is just as important as backing the project, and you would be helping us out tremendously. That’s friends, that’s family, that’s that person you’re mutuals with but have been too afraid to talk to on Twitter, that’s all of the Discord servers that you’re allowed to share links in… please – as far and as wide as you can go! Another way you can help us out is by adding Fraymakers to your Steam wishlist! Head over to our Steam page and hit the “Add to your wishlist” button:

So what is Fraymakers exactly? The word is finally out – it’s a fully modular, full-featured platform fighter featuring a crossover main cast from indie classics including BIT.TRIP, Downwell, Rivals of Aether, Slay the Spire, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, and Slap City! We’ve also added a massive selection of assist characters from a broad selection of other indie titles (far too many to list here!).
We’ve spared no detail or expense: the members of our playable cast feature full platform fighter movesets with no cut corners (that’s around 80 custom high-resolution pixel art animations per character). To sweeten the deal, our assist mechanic allows you to mix up your strategy by calling upon the unique ability of a helper to aid you in battle with a unique attack or ability. Make sure to visit our Kickstarter page to check out our campaign video to see everything in action!
If that’s not enough for you, we’re also introducing FrayTools, the robust custom tool we’re using to build the game itself! Using FrayTools, you can build your own characters, assists, and modes for Fraymakers using a program designed to make the experience as efficient, user-friendly and versatile as possible. Your options for new gameplay experiences are limited only by your imagination…or for the less creatively inclined, by your download speed.
Let’s bring Fraymakers to life together!
SSF2 v1.2.5 is out! To play/download, head on over to the SSF2 page. As mentioned before, this month’s patch is primarily focused on balance and bug fixes, however we included a few additional treats for you. Here’s a brief overview of the changes:
You can check out the full changelog here.
Also a reminder that we plan to release an additional patch in December with more of a focus on content. There’s still a chance to sign up for the MG Insiders newsletter to get access to the December patch before the general public. For more details, click here.
Mark your calendars – the Kickstarter campaign for our new platform fighter Fraymakers will launch TOMORROW on Wednesday, November 18th at 11am EST!

Now this is where you all come in – in order to make this project a success the first 48 hours are crucial. That means if you like what you see once we’re live, the best way to ensure the campaign’s success is to back the project as early as possible. It’s been shown that the success of a crowd-funding project is strongly correlated to how much support it receives from the get-go. That means the faster we hit our base goal, the better the outcome.
Not in a financial position where you can help fund Fraymakers? No worries! Whether you back or not, we’re asking everyone to please share our campaign with as many of your friends and family as possible once it goes live. Tell your friends to tell their friends and family too! Spreading the word is just as important as backing, as it helps us reach the widest possible audience in a way that we can’t do on our own.
At any rate, we hope you’re as excited as we are for the unveiling of McLeodGaming’s most ambitious game to date. We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes working on something that we believe will stand the test of time in the platform fighter genre. So fasten your seat belts, we’re gonna hit the ground running!
See you soon!
November has officially arrived, and that means we’re getting close to the Kickstarter for our upcoming game, Fraymakers!
While we can’t drop the specific campaign launch date just yet, we can tell you to expect the countdown to begin mid-November. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been brewing behind the scenes over the past couple of years, so make sure to like, follow, and subscribe so you don’t miss a thing! You can also sign up for our newsletter dedicated specifically to Fraymakers updates over at next.mcleodgaming.com.
As for SSF2 news, the next patch is scheduled for Tuesday, November 24th. We’re going to do things a bit differently for this release where it will be primarily focused on balance and bug-fixes, however to make up for the lack of content we’ve decided to do a bonus patch in December! Think of it as a small treat in the spirit of the holidays 🙂
Also as a quick reminder, our Insiders promotion to get access to SSF2 builds early is still ongoing! If you want to get download access early before the next patch is released, be sure to sign up!
This just in – we’re revealing the name of our new platform fighter! Get ready to duke it out in Fraymakers, coming to Kickstarter next month!
What kind of game is Fraymakers, you ask? All we’ll say for now is that it runs in our own brand new custom engine at a glorious 60 frames per second. We’re not quite ready to spoil the rest just yet, but make sure to stick with us for more info soon, including the official Kickstarter launch date!
