So we’re off to Las Vegas for the PlayStation Experience, December 6-7! We can’t wait to show the latest build of N++ and chat with players — this may be the last time we show it publicly before it is released?! Although release is still a few months off, we’re so close to being finished, and that is a great feeling.
We just did a detailed breakdown of our level-making process over on the PlayStation blog: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/12/04/the-ins-and-outs-and-ups-and-downs-and-lefts-and-rights-of-designing-n-levels/
And check out this short video we made to illustrate that process as well. https://vimeo.com/metanetsoftware/framebyframe
We’d just like to take a moment and say that the feedback we’ve been getting thus far is great, and we really appreciate the encouragement and appreciation from fans — we’re so happy you’re excited. We’re sorry it’s taking so long, but thank you for your patience, and for your enthusiasm — it’s much needed at this stage in development. So thank you! You don’t have long to wait now.
We’ve got some special merch for the PlayStation Experience, so if you’re in Las Vegas this weekend, come and say hi (Booth #I31) and check it out!
We just printed a new exclusive tshirt in a limited run of only 40:
and some really really awesome N++ pins just came in. They are super high-quality, hard enamel metal pins that have military-style double prongs to help keep them oriented properly. They come in a set of two on the coolest card (with shiny level thumbnails on a black matte background) and if you can’t tell we are really happy with them 🙂
If there are any left after this weekend, we’ll bring them back to Toronto and add them to our Etsy shop, so keep an eye there if you are interested.
We know a lot of you would like N++ tshirts, and we are thinking about ways to make that happen. Shipping small things is a lot easier for us — shipping tshirts gets pricey very fast here in Canada (think $20+ just for the shipping) so we don’t know if we’d ever sell many that way — but if we can find someone to partner with who can handle shipping shirts (at a lower cost to you), we may do that. We’ll keep you posted!
