Mixels Unite was a fan-created game based on the Mixels franchise that was set to be released on Windows computers for free. The game's development came to a close on October 27, 2020.
Three years after the events of the I-Cubit scam, King Nixel manages to invade and take over Mixopolis with the help of a new power. With the Mixels scattered and Nixels causing havoc across Mixopolis, it's up to one small, monochrome Mixel to set out across Mixopolis to save the planet, take on the Nixel Armada, and unite all Mixel tribes.
It's been three long years since the King Nixel and his army of Nixel minions scammed all of Mixopolis and managed to take over the city, before being stopped by one heroic Mixel...
Times have changed, and despite the period of peace, unity is not something to be found amongst Mixel-kind.
Mixels Unite's gameplay draws heavy inspiration from classic role-playing games such as EarthBound. The camera follows the main character, M.C., from overhead. M.C. is controlled using the directional keys and can move in eight directions. Various Mixels are found in locations on the overworld and can be interacted with and spoken to. Some Mixels give quests, while others can only be spoken to. Enemies, such as Nixels, are scattered around the overworld and activate a battle sequence when coming into contact with M.C. The battle system takes heavy inspiration from EarthBound, with your party of Mixels attacking the opponent in turns. Any two Mixels can Mix, although only a select amount have unique battle portraits. A player can escape a battle if it is not a boss encounter, although this will cost them 7 Mucks, which act as the game's currency.
The game was set to be released in nine chapters. Each chapter would have focused on a specific series of Mixels and their locations in Mixopolis. Chapters 1-3 were to include cousin members as playable characters, while Chapters 4-6 were to have more story focus to make up for less playable Mixels.
Development of Mixels Unite began on April 8, 2019 under the codename Mixels Project. Members of the Mixels fandom were brought on to help develop the game, including programmers, artists, writers, and composers. The game's Discord server was created on April 9, 2019, becoming the primary server for the game's development. The earliest development build of the game dates back to April 10, 2019, the same day the project was renamed to Mixels Unite. On April 12, 2019, the first idea of M.C. was conceptualized.
On September 22, 2019, an application form was opened for new people to join the development team after months of slow development. On November 28, 2019, a submission form was opened for users to submit their Mixels OCs as characters to potentially appear in the game. On December 6, 2019, the game's main theme, Unite, was composed.
On August 9, 2020, the game's development entered a hiatus, and on October 27, development came to a close.
