N++ PAX Tournament Footage

09 Sep / by: M&R / 10 comments / tags :

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! 🙂

  • Awesomeee, watched the whole video 😀
    I wish I could’ve participated, unfortunaly I live a few thousand kilometers away.

    As always; keep up the good work, can’t wait to play it!

    PS; Did you see my Tweet?

  • @Johan1996: Yes, that’s amazing!! Thank you 🙂

    Where do you live? We’re going to hopefully be running tournaments in a few different places over the next year, maybe we’ll be closer next time.

  • @M&R No problem 😀
    I live in The Netherlands, that country with the wooden shoes

  • I see the vast majority of the hackers have been cleaned off the boards, thanks a lot M&R! I just successfully downloaded the scores with no problem 😀

  • Hey, I know you probably won’t remember me via this text, but I was one of the contestants who didn’t make it to the finals… even though I attempted it twice. anyways, I was really looking forward to this game, and was wondering what the ETA is for the final release? or even when I could maybe get a test copy? I am an experienced game tester, and a game developer myself, and would love to help out if that’s alright with you guys!

  • Hello M&R,
    Any plans to release DLC after launch for n++?
    Also will n++ be on the PSN store this year? I’m ITCHING to play!!! 🙂

  • The new race mode looks incredible! Have you considered having a ranked mode to this where you climb a ladder or gain ELO? If something like that was in place I would play this game night and day.

    Is there even a tiny bit of hope that N++ will ever make its way to PC?

  • As far as I’ve read from all the times they’ve been asked so, if it does decently on PS4 they’ll consider porting it.

  • any chance for a release date?

  • we’re not sure what the release date will be yet, but rest assured, when we’re sure, we’ll let you all know! 🙂
