Play OverviewPlay Overview

Meet Your Maker (2023) is a traversal game where you try and get through bases filled with traps and hazards, the twist is that each of these has been made by other players. You run, jump, and grapple through these player-made labyrinths, defeating enemies and avoiding deadly traps. Do this well and you unlock new parts with which to build your own bases. It stands out for the way you can build off ideas found in other people's bases to create your own devious designs, in a loop that results in ever-evolving ideas.

In a ruined, post-apocalyptic world, you play a Custodian of the Chimera, a warrior designed to hunt down scarce DNA. You work through other players' bases to level up and gain resources, which you can then use to make or expand your own base's defences. But if you die you start again from the beginning.

When in a base, you avoid deadly traps that can appear at any moment (spikes, explosives and the like) and defeat enemies using the scant ammunition at your disposal. You have a grappling hook to reach more distant areas.

When building your own stage, you define its size, shape, and layout, as well as the placement of enemies, traps, and hazards like lava pits. Whether you choose to create a demanding platforming gauntlet or a maze filled with enemies, the decision is up to you.

The result is a game where you're free to create whatever trials and challenges you can think of, then watch on as players attempt to overcome them. Both beating someone else's stage after countless attempts and making your own is equally satisfying.

DurationDuration

Play Time: It takes between 5 minutes and 15 minutes to play a round of this game. The time it takes to beat a level can vary significantly, and if you die you have to start from the beginning again. Creating levels can take much longer and depends on the size of the stage. As the game is so open-ended, you can spend hundreds of hours and still have new levels to play.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 for Violence. This game has received a PEGI 16 because it features graphic violence towards fantasy characters and strong violence towards human characters. This game contains frequent graphic violence towards fantasy characters, which are part human and part machine. The use of powerful weapons against these characters causes them to be dismembered and decapitated, leaving behind gore and body parts, which remain on the ground. Human characters can also be attacked, resulting in sprays of blood but no dismemberment or decapitation. Human bodies fall limply to the floor. Human characters are sacrificed to a creature to make it more powerful. However, the deaths are implied rather than depicted.
 
User-Generated Content: This game includes content created by other players, such as maps, outfits and items, that are not reflected in the game rating.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
