Bring the house down
Today, it’s Guillaume on the keyboard because William is quite busy (you are about to know why in few paragraphs).
Here we go for some news about the last days out there!
>> Knock knock, who’s there?
The scene take place Wednesday, I was playtesting the game while taunting at William with stuff like “who’s the designer of this game who put this chest in an impossible position!”. All of a sudden, a big series of noises came out. The stairs of the 3rd landing floor of the building were knocking on the Swing Swing Submarine’s door!
Hopefully, the workers who were renovating the stairs got the time to escape. Nobody get hurt.
We spend the day with the door opened, and some dust in the air. It was quite surreal.
>> News about BTM?
As William was saying the last time, Blocks That Matter is in its “ban week” for the fail of a review. We put the game in playtest for Xna members in the beginning of the week in order to help identify potential issues that will make the game fail the next review.
Until now we didn’t have any response on the associated thread. So we don’t know if someone playtested the game in order to find some crashing scenarios. We can’t say what will happen for sure.
On my side, I do everything I can to test the game, looking for potential reasons to fail the game.
I spend the second part of the week working from my apartment. I must investigate each corner of the game to try to find anything that will avoid us to pass the review. It’s a little bit paranoiac moment to go through!
Hopefully, the game code is not as messy as my desk!
William is searching a new apartment, and maybe a new potential living room/office for Swing Swing Submarine!
Buster went on vacation a week ago in Paris (this guy got pied-à-terre everywhere!). So right now, he’s cool.
That’s it for this week!
I hope the next one will bring more BTM news!
Take care, and thanks for your support. You are f*ck*ng awesome!
Geee ! Thank you very much dear sailors friends 😉
Dear Lucca 🙂
You are so awesome with the support and energy you put in every single of your post, that I don’t know how to thanks you… well… maybe I got an idea… maybe you want the PC port done ASAP 🙂
Go for it !
(and for your info, you are credited in the game! For your patience playtesting the game :])
I’m crossing every fingers i can…
This one will be THE one 🙂
No problem 🙂 Don’t be sorry :]
We will see if it goes well this time! For now the progress bar display 50% (but it’s tricky since 50% in the progress bar doesn’t mean you get 50% of the needed reviewers, the last 50% are more painful to gather :])
*Sorry about the french comment*
Yes, I really really hope it’ll be ok this time. Well, I actually have no doubt it’ll be ok. Let’s plug my Xbox !
Hehe, pour ce qui est de la semaine de ban, elle terminait se matin… donc BTM est de retour à la case Peer Review :]
On croise les doigts 🙂
The ban week from perr review is over since this morning, so we put the game in Review for the 2nd time :] Finger crossed!
Il vous arrive des trucs de dingue les gars !
Vivement la fin de la semaine de ban, et des checks paranoïaques, dans tout les cas.
