There were a few technical hitches, but the tournament we held at PAX last week was pretty great! Our 8 finalists were playing for these fantastic prizes: https://twitter.com/metanetsoftware/status/506107991977103361/photo/1
We’ve uploaded video capture of the final day (quarter-, semi-, and final-finals) if you’d like to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXdETgJODdw
Unfortunately we couldn’t record the crowd/etc., so we just added our own (sometimes quite silly) commentary over the captured game footage.
The good news is that everyone seemed to really like the new revamped Race mode; we’re excited to run more tournaments in the future.
Our current plan is to nail down deathmatch mode this week, then spend the rest of September and October finalizing all of the semi-complete tasks (making race/deathmatch levels, making easier co-op levels, finishing new entity behaviours, prototyping final vfx, etc) as well as getting the server/cloud/back-end stuff up and running.
Then we’ll only have tons of testing and polishing left! 🙂
