Latest news: Halloween and the city

halloweenportadablog

Hello everyone! 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 are talking about Halloween days and the city.

Halloween: as we told you on our social networks, we will celebrate Halloween with you yet another year. From  October 30th to November 1st you will have a pumpkin head available in the game.  Additionally, we have prepared a small contest for backers in which two upgrades will be distributed among the participants. Stay tuned on our social networks because we will post the instructions on  October 30th. We anticipate it will be a photographic competition with night mode activated.

The city:  Last Wednesday we posted a picture as making of the city, one of our main priorities right now, so when the beta comes out, you are able to ride your bike on  the biggest and best possible spaces. As many of you may appreciate, we are taking care of many details to make it alive. For those who missed it, you have an updated map available of the areas that will be ready when the backers’ beta comes out. Let us show you some additional screenshots from the city.

Latest news: content for beta backers, console versions confirmed and Physics Tuning Tool

webcontador

Hello everyone! 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 are talking about backer’s beta content, console versions confirmed and opening Physics Tuning Tool to backers.

Console versions confirmed:

As some of you might have heard, we reached 5.000 pre-orders on Wednesday and as a result we could finally confirm next generation console versions (PS4 and XBox One) for 2017. Many of you have asked us about the PS3 and XBox 360 versions. Unfortunately, we have been forced to put aside these platforms for two main reasons. Adapting such a demanding game like BMX The Game to eleven years old consoles is technically very complex and requires many economic resources that we do not currently have.

Content for beta backers:

We keep working hard on the beta, which will soon be available exclusively for backers. What will this new previous version to Steam Early Access contain? The goal of this beta is to test new physics and new mechanics we have been recently working on. Remember that your feedback will be a key factor. In addition to the above, the new version will come with a new menu, new user interface and a mini-game to test local multiplayer. The available riding area will also be expanded: for those of you who know Barcelona, you will be able to ride on places like Plaza Universitat, Plaza Catalunya and the MACBA.

Opening Physics Tunning Tool:

Finally, and listening to your comments, we have decided that the tool presented last week by the name of Physics Tunning Tool will be open to all backers until the game comes out in Early Access. We are very interested to have many tests so your participation will be essential.

That’s all for now. Let your impressions and comments below! Happy weekend!

 

Latest news: physics tunning tool, bike editor on Mac and mobile version

portada Hello everyone! 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 are talking about physics tunning tool, bike editor on Mac and mobile version we’re working on.

Physics Tuning Tool

This new tool will be available from barspin team member tier onwards. The Physics Tuning Tool will be used to adjust the physics values in real time as well as saving multiple physical profiles.  You will be able to tune not only physics, but the riding style too: you will be able to adjust several riding variables such as handlebars maximum turning angle, the speed used to bend down, the degrees your bike can get to lean depending on the speed, etc. The number of variables rises to 350 so we will be able to customize and and fine tune at our pleasure. Once this tool is implemented we will ask you to send us your best profiles in order to include them in the game for everyone to enjoy. unnamed

Bike Editor on Mac

 Good news! As you have been requesting, finally we can announce that the Bike Editor is now available for all Mac users. As you know, it is available for all backers in the private area. Please Mac users, try it and share with us anything about it.

Mobile Version:

Finally, remember that yesterday we published a gif that showed the promised editor mobile version. This version is being worked in parallel (not taking development time from the main game team) and it will be available in the coming weeks for iOS and Android devices. Remember that, for the moment, it will  only include the Bike Editor section as well as some other extra features.

 That’s all for now. Let your impressions and comments below! Happy weekend!
