Two Tribes have announced, thanks to a post on their development blog, that they will be the first indie game company to allow players to share levels through the Steam Workshop. Toki Tori 2 will also be the first ever game of theirs to include a level editor and players will be able to edit and create new levels to share with the rest of the Steam community, much like Portal 2.
The Steam workshop was originally used solely to distribute items in Valve’s own Team Fortress 2, but in early 2012 opened it’s doors to support any game. Portal 2, another of Valve’s games, and Skyrim have since made use of the workshop with Portal allowing players to create and share levels and Skyrim allowing players access to various user made mods and items to change aspects of the game.
If you’re a fan of the first Toki Tori and want to check this out then it’s not to late for you to get early access. Two Tribes have been quietly developing Toki Tori 2 for some time now and are encouraging people to help test the game. They are currently giving away beta testing keys for use on Steam and all you need to do to get one is send a short e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
