The Karters' Beta Phase One Completed!




Hello Kart Fans!

Allow me to thank you all for the wonderful contribution that you have provided us with in Phase One of The Karters Beta. The amount of feedback is simply staggering to say the least, which enables us to work on fixing those pesky bugs as well as it fuels us to work even harder on the game.

The first phase was all about the mechanics and our beloved community showed us the right approach to tackle issues that we haven't even seen before. This, naturally, allowed us to find and fix some bugs that makes our game even better and most importantly, that much more competitive. We've patched the game three times and with each patch we were able to fix a ton of issues that our users have experienced. Like this one (thank you Nova):



Also, worth mentioning is the fact that our Beta Testers were running the game on the lowest video settings. Phase Two should be much more visually stunning.

In the following hours from posting this announcement, we are going to shut down the game and make preparations for Phase Two. We're positive that with this amount of feedback we can surely implement it into Phase Two without any hesitation. The community has been our focus and our guide throughout the development of the game, so we're confident that we are doing what is right for our game.

We've got everything we need! So, if one of our Beta Testers still hasn't got his hands on The Karters, now's the perfect time to do it as the clock is ticking!

Q: When is Phase Two going to start?

A: Phase Two still is in preparation, so we will keep you posted when we're ready to let you guys in and allow you to face new features and . . . bugs. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Steam discussions and in the always active Discord to be up to date.

Q: Can I still become a Beta Tester?

A: Of course! Please fill in THIS FORM.

Q: I've been chosen as a Beta Tester in Phase One, do I need to fill the form again?

A: No, you don't have to. You are already invited to Phase Two!

==========

Current Leaderboard Status (yes Tazua, we saw what you did on Kanyon West *wink*):




That's it! Get those last PRs and WRs while you still can. Soon, we are going to Phase Two!

Once again, thank you for all of your help and those crazy times you have achieved. Phase Two will be about testing the multiplayer, so you will definitely have your skills put up to the highest test!

Until next time Kart Fans!

Also guys, please let us know about your first impressions from the Beta in the comments below!

Message from the Developers:

As great fans of Crash Team Racing, we used to wonder what this game would look like in modern times. While browsing through various forums about CTR, it became clear to us that the community shares our desire for a more up-to-date karting game, especially the one that would support online multiplayer. In The Karters, we are trying to bridge the gap that CTR has left. We realize that Crash Team Racing is a legend that set the bar high. However, by putting a strong emphasis on the mechanics and marking the game with its unique style, we do hope The Karters will bring players lots of joy and pure fun.
