Basically, Rayman ReDesigner is for Redemption what Designer was for Rayman 1. It allows you to create your own levels and to play them with Rayman Redemption’s gameplay mechanics!
It’s packed with a lot of content! So almost all the elements (objects, enemies, backgrounds, etc.) and almost all the gameplay possibilities from Redemption are available in the game!
There are also new features like the Laser-Washing Powders from Rayman 3 (plus a new one giving you the power to mega jump) which are returning in this game, or elements taken from classic 2D Rayman games and which were not present in Redemption (like objects from the 2D prototype of Rayman 2… Finally, we can finish the game on Ubisoft’s behalf ).
There are also mounts (like Bzzit and the robot dinosaur from Rayman 2 2D) and some bosses are even available to chase you around!
When it comes to customisation, almost all of Redemption’s options and skins are available (except the combat fatigues which can only be used temporarily by activating the corresponding power-ups... or infinitely if you set the Laser-Washing Powders to never end, which will turn them golden). You can also create your own custom skins for Rayman and his fist by editing the skin files that come with the game!
Among most of the editor’s features, you can adjust the size of the level, use custom music and backgrounds (or what is already offered in the game), change platform collisions to give them totally different behaviours, vary the textures of the environment (regardless of what theme you picked for your level) with layers, or even place and manipulate effects and tons of different elements.
The editor can be pretty complex to use, so make sure to check the READ.ME file! It will help you a lot. While the editor is kinda hard to use, it can be very quick to create some basic levels once you get the hang of it. Feel free to ask any question if there’s something you don’t understand.
Here’s a personal tip: consider creating a shortcut for your custom levels folder (which can be found in Users/[Your name]/AppData/Local/RaymanReDesigner), it will make your life easier.
Make sure to save your levels regurlarly. Some crashes may happen on some rare occasions and it would be a shame to lose some of your hard work.
If you don’t feel too creative or if you want to see what kinds of possibilities ReDesigner can give you, the game is bundled with a few levels (four) and they’re pretty good! Although, some have some pretty frustrating difficulty peaks, and they’re far from being as great as what could be seen in Redemption.
Here are some brief descriptions of these levels. I’ve put them under spoilers in case you want to fully discover them by yourself:
Have fun and feel free to share your creations!
To quickly share your levels or skins, compress them into a .zip file and upload it here as an attachment.
If you intend to use custom music or backgrounds, bundle them with your level. It will probably exceed the RPC's maximum file size, so you'll have to upload your level somewhere else (Mediafire, Google Drive, etc.) and to share the link here. Note: music files must be in ogg format.
Here are levels created by some players (the download links are in their posts):
