It’s been a while since our last update, but that’s solely because we’re trying to get the game done! With a two man team, you have to pick your battles, and try to do everything as efficiently as possible. However, some things just take a lot of time, and the only way to get it done is just by doing the work. And that’s what we’ve been doing the last 4 months! (As well as sitting on the beach a few days, it’s been very hot here in Vancouver, BC).
We’re still going strong with Scrap Metal; We’ve got all the major systems working, we’ve got multiplayer working, we’ve got most of the single player game. We’re going to be making a few more tracks, and then it’s all about polishing the missions and cars.
The rendering technology we built seems to be holding up quite nicely, and we’ll be making a video about this next. This video should be released before PAX, where we’ll share a stand with our good friends Klei Entertainment. If you’re going to PAX, come check us out! We’ve got some awesome merchandise to give away.
Anyway, I wanted to share with you this one thing I put in the game last night. I thought it was kinda cool. I’m not sure yet if we’ll put it in the actual game, but since it’s pretty damn cool, there’s a good chance it will! I present to you: Anaglyph rendering! So to make this work you need some Red-Cyan glasses (Red over the left eye, cyan over the right). There’s tons of types available here, just make sure you get red-cyan ones!
