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!

Latest news: La Poma bikepark!

Hello everyone! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios.

Today we want to talk about La Poma park. As many of you know, we tried to make a replica of La Poma one year ago, but the park suffered a lot of changes months ago. Due these changes besides the difficulty of making a dirt park, we just tried with a new technique called photogrammetry.

This week part of the team went to La Poma and could take aerial pictures thanks to a dron. Through those pictures we will be able to make a 3D and a realistic replica for the game. La Poma will be the first dirt park in BMX The Game, indeed. Notice La Poma is a huge terrain with a lot of difficulty and work (we want it to be as realistic as possible), but we’ll make our bests in order to include the park for the Early Access version (Steam).

Down below you have some pictures taken during the recording day.

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

Latest news: loading screen!

Hello everyone! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios.

As we previously announced  to backers, today we made a video showing the loading screen you will have on the beta. As the city will be huge, players will be able to play some tricks in a loading screen that will change every time.

This loading screen will be generated randomly with different spots and different bikepark pieces. We are also working on new minigames so you do not have to wait doing nothing while computer loads the city. Notice that this load screen is very simple for any computer to load fast. In this case, game loaded the stadium (Palau Sant Jordi) we talked about past week.

Finally, we have been reading you comments about asking new gameplay with tricks. About this, if we have not showed tricks so far, it is because we do not have everything implemented and polished yet. Until we have every trick finished, we won’t be able to show gameplay with tricks. Thanks for your patience. Have a good weekend.
