Latest news: Racing Mode , impact absorption, muscles in action and more

portadacubo

Hello, guys! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios. This week we will talk about impact absortion and a new multiplayer game mode we’re working on.

Impact absorption and more:

As many of you have seen this week, we have published a gif on our social networks to show how the impact absorption is improving. Remember that everything we show is work in progress (and, as many of you noticed, we are aware that pedaling is not polished yet). Following that, let us show you another video related to the  previous gif  where you can appreciate how the character skeleton reacts to the physics. As you can see on the gif and on the new video down below, the body is no longer rigid while following an animation: every muscle has its strength and endurance.

Remember last (and in response to your comments on the forum) that Unity 5 has forced us to redo almost everything. Due to the new physical engine of Unity 5 (which improves physics) we are remaking the entire game, and this is the main reason why development is taking us longer. At first it was very frustrating for us, but, as we have said before, we took it as an opportunity to make the game better.

Racing Mode:

While last week we spoke about Obstacle Course, today we’re going to talk about Racing Mode, a new multiplayer/single game mode.

Racing Mode consists of creating closed circuits or delimited routes anywhere on the map. To build and define the areas of competition we’ll use specific props of the game mode as well as props from the park editor. Closed circuits will be able to be shared with the community to be played online. For this mode and other creation modes, we are designing an online rating system which encourages continuous improvement of designs and creations.

Giveaway:

Finally, we remind you that this week we’re giving away two upgrade accounts between backers. Those who want to participate, only have to post their best BMX The Game customized bike screenshot with #MyBMXTheGamebike on Twitter or Instagram (and mention us). We’ll announce the winners on October 4th.

Latest news: Obstacle course and Barcelona Games World

programmersredes

Hello, guys! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios. This week we will talk about Barcelona Games World and a new multiplayer game mode we’re working on.

Beta release date

As we revealed yesterday on Facebook, we’re working on many things at the same time, with a special focus on the physics system, which we want to be perfect for you (and it’s taking a while).

We’re looking forward to show you what we have improved as soon as we have it ready because we’re proud of all the recent work. Like we announced two months ago, our intention was to release a full playable beta this week, but due to the complexity of all the tasks, we have decided to extend the development a few more weeks.

Don’t forget that we do want to give you the best product we can make. In fact, next week’s post will be only for backers with privileged information about team creator and all its features. While we ask you for a little bit more patience, we want to share with you today this short gif as a Q.A. physics settings sneak peak (work in progress).

Obstacle course:

While last week we spoke about Game of Add, today we’re going to talk about Obstacle Course, a new multiplayer/single game mode.

The obstacle course works in a closed arena in which park creator tools will be used with some props. The goal is to create a challenging circuit where you have to perform jumps, sharp twirls and even passing by gangplanks. Once you have it designed and created in multiplayer mode, you will be able to challenge your friends to overcome this circuit  on a time trial. You can also overcome circuits made by the community or just make it on your own, you decide! We show you a video in which we are inspiring for this just down below.

 Barcelona Games World

One of the news that we wanted to give you the most is that, for the first time, we will attend a gaming expo event. Those in Barcelona from 6 to 9 October can visit us at the Barcelona Games World. On this event we will show you how the development is going, what we have developed to date (everything we have been showing to you through social networks) and we will do some contests with version 0.184. Those who can stop by our stand will receive a small gift as a thank you for fidelity. We’ll tell you what it is and all the details on the following weeks.

Latest news: new trick system and Game of Add

mandoredes

 

Hello, guys! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios. This week we will talk about the new trick system and a new multiplayer game mode we’re working on.

New Trick system:

On the new version, the trick system has completely changed. We have been working hard on lag issues that we previously had as well as on the gesture mapping. While adding more and more tricks to the system, we realized that we needed to re-desing  the entire trick map in order to: 1) be able to cover  all our planned tricks  and 2) to help the system  detect them correctly. With this new design, the gestures are more intuitive and easier to combine with each other. We have also improved the trick response, which is now is immediate. All these things have improved  the gameplay a lot. Finally, it’s important to note that a tutorial with all the tricks will be available in the final version of the game.

New Game mode: Game of Add

While last week we spoke about Game of Bike, today we’re going to talk about Game of Add.

Game of Add is a multiplayer turn-based game with a minimum of 2 players. The first  player chooses the area in which the competition will  take place and he/she starts by performing a trick. The next player’s goal consists on  performing the same chain and trick but adding a new  trick to the chain, and so on. Every opponent adds a new trick to the previous one until the chain gets more complicated and there is only one player left. There’s only one winner in this mode.

Twitter Raffle:

Finally, just a reminder of our latest raffle on Twitter. If you haven’t purchased the game yet, you can participate for the chance of one Basic Rider pack. We’ll announce the three winners on 19th September!
