Latest news: current state and painting workflow!

Hello everyone! We’re back to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news about Barspin Studios.

As you know we are working very hard on the game, fighting every day to have the new version as soon as possible.

These days we are working on the physics and mechanics, so the game works perfectly, as well as the environments and spots like La Poma, the editors to offer more customization and… we have also started the marketing plan for the launch. We are at a difficult time because of the number of open issues, but we are achieving our goals.

Today we want to show the current state of La Poma’s BikePark and how we’re painting it. We created different procedural textures and we are painting them with a brush, always looking for realism and similarity with the original spot. Let us show you a quick video of the process:

Finally, on the following video we show you how the Poma was a couple of days before we started to paint it. At that time the ground was being polished and we were checking that all the ramps were well adjusted as well as functional for our physics (despite the physics are not finished yet, they are enough to test the spot). Remember once again all we show is work in progress. We hope you like it as much are we do.

That’s all for today. Have a nice weekend!

Latest news: current state, bike and rider editors!

Hello everyone! We’re back to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news about Barspin Studios.

Right now are very focused on the new version, dedicating all the resources we have and all the time we have on it. We are anxious to publish this new version in order you to try and see the incredible changes that we achieved.

Remember that this game works with physics and procedural animations, which means that there are never 2 tricks exactly the same, provinding the game much more realism and much flow.

There are many differences with the previous one, but, above all, we have focused interest on softening the difficulty of the game thanks to your feedback. This makes the gameplay improves, especially the learning. We’ve got the game to work better, be more stable and much more organic.

Another part of the team is focused on remodeling the new characters, and today we can show you Matt.

Another new feature that we will be able to include on the new version is the rider editor. It will work pretty much like the Bike Editor, but with clothes and accessories at first.

Also remember that we keep working on “La Poma”. This terrain is so organic that is very complex to model and it requires effort and dedication, but the results we are obtaining are very good. We hope to be able to show you the progress soon.

Finally, and as we mentioned before, while working on the character editor, we are finishing the bike editor. We have implemented new paint finishes and new textures for the wheels.

Once again, thank you for your patience and your support. Have a nice weekend.

Latest news: internal beta roadmap!

Hello everyone! We’re back to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news about Barspin Studios.

As you may know, we expected to launch the internal beta by the end of this first quarter. That was our intention and we have worked hard to get it but it has not been possible due to some mishaps. We’ll talk more about these mishaps in the future when the beta is finished. There’s nothing negative about it. They just take time, so the beta is being delayed a few weeks – we’re close to finish it. We have been developing in our hardest work mode – shutted inside the office for weeks – and so we’ll continue till we make the goal. We understand your frustration although we’re the most frustrated about delays because pre-orders are closed since October and we have pressure to get it as soon as possible, but in the other hand we want to make the best game possible. So we’re going to keep working hard.

Now we’d like to show a brief development roadmap so you can see what we’re working for Internal Beta.


Lastly, remember that we’re posting exclusive dev videos only for backers every week. You can check them out on the private forum (you need to log in before) -> https://t.co/G1FSXFwnZz

Finally,  we have prepared a short video (exclusive for backers) where Xals shows and explains at what point the development is in terms of physics and what he is working on today. This is one of the latest few bugs to fix before the beta release. Remember you need to log in to the forum to see the link.

Latest news: La Poma bikepark scanned and retopology!

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 already have the scanned model of La Poma bikepark (if you do not know what all this is about, you may take a look to this post). Now the hard work of retopology begins, which means that we are creating a more polished 3D model with less polygons in order to get a more optimized terrain. Down below you can take a look to the screenshots taken once the land has been scanned. We hope to be able to show you the progress of retopology made on next week.

Meanwhile, the programming department keeps working hard on the physics as well as the bug fix. If all goes well next week we will be able to show you the progress made with tricks and physics.

This is all for today. We wish you a happy weekend!
