The bugs are fixed! Well, at least those bugs which make the game unplayable, and are detected. Say this doesn’t seems too much, but it has take so long to achieve this. Still there are many minor bugs of course – we still on pre-alpha yet – but the game it’s pretty solid right now. So, what remains to release it? We have to enable the old tricks – we had to disable many of them for testing purposes – and add the new ones. We have also to tweak and test before release it.
In other aspects of the game life, we’re working on improve the website and the knowledge about the game. We’re recording videotutorials for those people who have problems with the website, pre-orders and also installing the game. We have done many minor changes in the website trying to be more explainatory about the registering-validating process. Many of you had experienced a lot of problems with the confirmation emails.
Also we’re recording one video explaining all what we have done in this 0.178 version – I’m afraid because I don’t want to get a long video – and also talking about the next steps – I will talk more about this down. And of course, planning the trailer for the Steam Greenlight. This is an important goal for the project so we have to do our best on this. Any help and advice will be appreciated, specially on free music for the bso.
About the next steps, in some point of the future we will migrate to Unity 5. Indeed we’re already working on it. The perfect scenario is keep working on Unity 4.5.5 – doing updates more frequently – one or two weeks like the first versions on november – and also have a team working on the migration in parallel. At this moment we’re using Unity5 for art and design purposes – the hard part of the migration is the physics.
I want to share with you some few screenshots of BMX The Game in Unity5. They are on a very early stage but they could help to see where we can go in quality terms.
PS: we don’t usually share things like this – outside the game -, but this video has given us motivation to work this weekend after a hard and long week
