Moyack made me set up a thread here...

JetCraft is a 2D platform sidescroller game and level editor for StarCraft 2.
The game's objective is to leave the level through the exit door which will only open once the player has collected all the keys scattered around.
The player will also be able to collect various treasures to increase the end score, but only the keys are mandatory to complete the level.
The map comes with its own in-game level editor which allows players to create their own JetCraft levels and share with other people online.
JetCraft has been under development since October 2012 and is currently in early beta stage.

More information can be found at my website:

[I'm currently looking for people interested in beta testing (JetCraft requires Heart of the Swarm expansion pack)]
Key Features: (version 1.0.0)
 • Play through an extensive list of challenge maps to get the highest scores possible.
 • Play together with up to three other players in the online versus and coop mode.
 • Create and save up to 32 custom levels using the easy-to-use in-game level editor.
 • Share your creations with other players over Battle.Net.
 • Downloadable local copy allows players to play the map singleplayer without input delays.
 • Rebind-able controls allows you to play with whatever key setup you find comfortable.

That's okay. I'm loving how hyped you seem to be about this. :)

I haven't added anything new to the map itself, but I am preparing for the offline open beta which will launch in a few days.
So, yeah, it's definitely coming.
