Thats it! Episode #1 is FINAL!!! FINAL!!! FINAL!!! Haha, always remember the ‘making of’ segment on the Finding Nemo DVD. Andrew Stanton (director) is wandering around with a mini mega-phone shouting, ‘FINAL!!!’ once an animator has completed a shot, and lets also not forget the Mexican guitar band in the background! Anyway thats what always plays in my head when something hits the point of being final… Andrew Stanton jumps out and shouts, ‘FINAL!!!’ Haha! Nuff of that now!! Work still goes on, on episode #2, and hopefully when Episode #1 gets officially launched we will be having an Episode #2 sneak peak video!! So get ready, its coming out soon!!!!
So after 3 dayz of standing on the rAge exhibition floor, my feet are absolutely broken… not to mention my back from packing up all the equipment! Anyway such is life!!! I am still freaking out at how scary your feet can get from just standing around… rAge was flipping awesome though.. Not only did I manage to buy myself a Nintendo wii (YAY!!!!), but we have got some amazing positive feedback about MINI#37! People could not believe that we were giving the game away for free. They were so amazed that South Africa is up there making computer games of this quality, and many people mistook it for the next version of Need for Speed. There was hardly a moment when the racing seats were not filled by people. Consistent flow of people onto the stand just kept the vibe going… We’re now back at the studio looking to the future. Getting ready for the official online launch/release. Keep your eyes open and keep checking MINI37.com for the official download link!
So thats it…. officially everything needed for rAge is finished….. its a good feeling!!! Onto the final 3 levels. The bulk of the work is done, its minor tweaking and getting them race ready now!!! Gonna hopefully be trying out some new (new for our game play!) ideas… should make the tracks a bit more entertaining and challenging too. Keep an eye out for those when they come up for download!!!
With rAge just days away, work on getting the levels optimised and polished has stepped up a notch. Its basically the focus this week. Its all about Frame Rates and Poly Counts on screen now…. aiming to keep Frame Rates up and Poly Counts down.
Hopefully see you at rAge and you’ll get a chance to play MINI #37!!!
Work on MINI #37 is progressing steadily. Lately work/modding on the engine has slowed and it has come down to finalising the art. New Levels, New Cars, its just a process of getting it all done and polished!
