Community Campfire #15

Howdy Folks!

 

Wow! It seems like every week things just get busier around here!

 

I don't know if you caught last week's gameplay livestream, but it was intense!

 

If you missed it, it's worth checking out!

 

 

ROOSTER TEETH EXPO

 

As Rob mentioned yesterday, we're setting up a booth at RTX this weekend to share Descent: Underground with a whole new batch of people.

 

We should be in booth 341 right next to the MechCorps, so if you're in town be sure to swing by and visit us!

 

In addition, we are scheduled to be doing a LIVE, hour-long Wingman's Hangar on Rooster Teeth's central stage on Saturday at 11AM CDT. That's our usual time slot, but one day later. That does mean we aren't streaming on Friday, but you'll get TWICE the Wingman if you tune in on Saturday!

 


PLAYTESTING

 

On Wednesday, we'll be "locking down" our build with the latest features so that we can put it in front of our Advisory Board members.

 

That means that we're counting down to our first Proving Grounds pre-alpha test!

 

We still have a few technical hurdles to make sure that everyone who should be able to get into Proving Grounds can, so I don't have a hard date... yet.

 

In the meantime, if you don't currently have Proving Grounds access as a part of your pledge rewards, you can always join The Underground to get Proving Grounds access for as long as you're a member.

 

BUILD-A-BOT

 

Build-A-Bot is our summer contest, in which fans like YOU are designing a bot for Descent: Underground!

 

The overall winner of Build-A-Bot will receive an AMD 290X Video Card, and the winner is chosen by point for entries, victories, and participation across multiple stages and categories- click here for all the info on Build-A-Bot!

 

We've finished Stage 3 of the Art Path, with Louhikarme's high-detail bot progressing into Stage 4!

 

That means that we've started Stage 4 of the Art Path- TEXTURING!

 

We need YOU to put a paintjob on the flamethrower boss bot. Click here for all the details!

 

In addition, we've moved Stage 3 Design into semi-finalist voting. We need you to cast your vote!

 

That's all for today, folks- fly safe!

Any upcoming trade shows on the East that you guys might attend?  (Dragon Con in Sept in Atlanta,  or  Video Gamers United in Oct in Washington DC).

IIRC, we don't have plans to do those at this point.

 

RTX is in our backyard (like 7 blocks from the office), so it's less of a production to transport our gear and get set up. Those other shows would be much more expensive because of travel, shipping, and so on- not to mention the time away from building the game.

 

However... I can't promise that we WON'T be at any of those other cons, either. The priority is building the game, but we do love to get out and share the game with people.

 

Even if we can't make it, maybe by then we'll be able to support some kind of street teams to spread the good news.

I hear you on being local, that is tough to beat.  And I understand the logistics. I used to throw an annual user group meeting and entertainment week for 20 or so people. They technical and financial obligations to throw an event are pretty tough if you want to both inform and entertain. 

 

I plan on hitting Dragon Con for a day, since its about 3.5 hours from the house. My wife is a big True Blood fan and her favorite actress from the series will be there. (And Abney Park is playing it, one of my favorite bands.)  Having the DS crew there would be the trifecta. :)
