We're all going to go to PAX PRIME in Seattle this weekend, where we'll have a HUGE booth where people can play SpeedRunners and where a very special and awesome thing is going to take place that we can't talk about yet, but definitely is going to be AWESOME!
Anyway, it's been a while since we did our last major update. Since then, we've released a lot of small updates, that we didn't feel were enough by themselves to mark it as a "new" update. For instance, we've changed the behaviour when landing on slopes a little bit. You now keep your momentum, resulting in high velocities if you do it right. Even though that's quite a game-changer, it was so small of a change that it was still considered as part of r30.
Seeing as we're leaving now for a week though, we thought it would be a good idea to try to make sure we did push an update for you all before we left. So, without further ado, here's UPDATE R31!
This update adds the first iteration of artwork for the ZOO level (formerly Prototype). We're going to animate some stuff later on, but this should already give you a good idea of what we're aiming for with this level. We've also updated some animations on Buckshot, Gil and 招き猫, most notably the latter's jump animation. We've also updated the Level Editor to be a bit more user-friendly and by popular request we've added a 'no items' option in custom games, amonst many other small things.
The full list of changes can be found here.
Oh, and don't forget - if you're attending PAX, make sure to drop by our Booth (#6003 on the 6th floor, near the PAX10), especially on Saturday the 30th!

A year ago was the first time we've shown SpeedRunners. It was PAX Prime and we had a tiny minibooth. Next week we are heading to PAX Prime once again. This time though we'll have 300sq feet dedicated to SpeedRunners, with 3 stations, huge bean bag chairs, and lots of things for you to win!
- Location: Booth #6003 6th floor
- PAX Prime 2014, Seattle, August 29-Sept 1.
Stuff to win:
3D Printed Trophies
We've experimented with 3D prints last couple of weeks and were able to get more or less presentable trophies done. We'll have a bunch of them, and depending on the amount, will decide the rules how to get them.
Plenty of T-Shirts will be available for sale, and we will give away some during specific events at the show (i.e. play vs the developers)
A very, very special event
On Saturday August 30th we will have a very special event at our booth. You won't want to miss it. Details to follow!
Today's livestream will discuss what we're working on and what to expect of PAX Prime. It doesn't get archived since we talk about anything that we don't usually discuss publically. Tune in at 4PM CET on http://twitch.tv/tinybuild
