New Kid on the block

Unexpected work and awesome opportunities

Dear friends,

We’re working very hard these days. As you know we expected a more gradual process of pre-orders, but the success of BMX The Game is unstoppable and has brought a lot of unexpected work and awesome opportunities. We have faced some problems with the website and the user registration. Many things can still be improved and we’re working on it. Thank God we limited pre-orders to 1000! It would be great if this extra work does not influence our scheduled deadlines too much, but like any successful project this is hard to achieve.

Many people want to participate in this project and they have asked us to allow more pre-orders. We’ll make more pre-orders available soon because is important to the game, but we have to fix a few things before that to prevent delaying development tasks any further.

This success also means unique opportunities. This week we have received several investment offers which could help BMX The Game develop faster, and even help the consoles version to arrive sooner than expected. Many companies related to BMX are approaching us and offering their help, aware that the success of BMX The Game will help the entire BMX industry.

The sneak peek is close to completion and it’s going to use new awesome features displayed in some of the videos that you may have seen. Due to the additional work of these last few days, we have been spending less time developing the game than we have hoped, and the release of the sneak peek has been slightly delayed. We know that you can’t wait for it, and neither can we. However it is important that we polish some things, and there are still a few days work left before it can be released. We are currently adding more people to the team in order to help us minimize delays.

At the moment we’re receiving a lot of collaboration offers from many supporters. To help us we have created a group of moderators that will assist with the task of managing the community, so we can focus on the sneak peek. If you want to participate in a more active way with your knowledge and experience, please send us your proposal to collaborations[at]bmxthegame[dot]com

Thank you for your support and patience. We’ll keep you informed.


Things are happening fast

The last week something that no one expected happened. We had expected a good reception. We have over 50k friends on Facebook so we expected a good part of them visiting the website and pre-ordering. After so much time in silence the hype was high, but we didn’t expect so. Indeed we had over 500k hits in less than 3 hours, which caused several problems on our server. As result, the server fell down. We contracted a better server, but migrating to another server isn’t a quick thing. We spent hours and hours calling to technical services, trying to accelerate the process. After 5 days of stress, lot of errors during the process and hundreds of emails and phone calls, we had done the migration.

Yesterday, the website was ready again, and now we’re receiving an amazing flow of visits and pre-orders. The new server is working smooth. The 1,000 pre-orders were expected to be sold in about 4-6 weeks. Away from this theory, all the pre-orders could be sold out today late or tomorrow. Less than 36h hours!

This situation demonstrates that BMX The Game is gonna be an incredible game. We have learned the lesson: there’re more people than expected ready to get involved in this game. We have to make the things better to include everyone. All this support is gonna help to make a bigger game in a short time. The goals which seemed hard to achieve now are close.

We gonna put all our efforts and resources to improve what we have and what we gonna do. We need people 100% commited with the game and the BMX culture. We feel this game is unstoppable and the things are happening fast.
