Racket: Nx - Bisher
Hey all,

We just updated the game a bit, here's the shortlist of changes:

  • Multiplayer matchmaking and friend invite bugs fixed
  • Game stuck syncing in start room bug fixed
  • Entanglement counter fixed
  • Voice comm loss bug fixed
  • Added 'stream cams' feature (activated through settings) this feature enable auto-directed action cameras to be displayed on your monitor. This is aimed at streamers who want a cooler view of the game but is also useful for your friends while they're watching you play
  • Undersampling was added because stream cams can affect performance

Also, in a few hours we'll be updating our free demo, to reflect all of EA2 changes.

Do let us know if you run into any issues

We are happy, tired and proud to announce Racket: Nx, Early Access 2!

EA2 is a huge update; we've basically taken the game up a notch on every front:
    - A new Arena with dynamic topology makes the game more fluent and pinbally.
  • Competitive Multiplayer is now ranked!
  • We've added an original soundtrack with outstanding electronic music from the likes of Mr. Bill and Electrypnose.
  • Players now have career stats and ratings.
  • Tons of visual and auditory changes.
  • Tons of gameplay improvements.
  • Tons of tons!
We feel that the game is finally showing its mature form. Despite all the fatigue we've accumulated recently, we're already psyched about where it's going and are eager to continue developing more content, more features, and really let it shine.

A special shout out to all our beta testers and discord residents. You guys keep us motivated, and as always, you've been a tremendous help!

We hope you enjoy the new update!

Hey there, boys and girls!

The Free Weekend is about to come to a close, and I wanted to take the chance to tell you a bit about what's coming for RNX.

For over a month and half we've been working hard on our next big release, Early Access 2: Open League.
For those who don't already know us, we don't like releasing stuff before it's properly done and polished. Since EA2 touches on almost every aspect of the game, we can't really release it in bits and pieces without betraying our own standards. So it'll all come out when it's done :)

In the meantime, I'm glad to tell you about some of the major features you can expect from EA2:
  • Ranked Multiplayer - competitive multiplayer games will be ranked, players will be rated and fun will be had!

  • MUSIC! - we've collected some of the finest electronic musicians to produce music in 6 channels for RNX. Expect glitch, trance, IDM, DnB, and more.

  • Upgraded Arena - our arena is going through some deep renovations as we speak. More on that down the road.

  • New Content - we're gonna have more stuff to do, additional tricks to learn and new tactics to develop.
Thank you all for your patience, suggestions and feedback! I know we haven't made big updates in a few weeks, but it's going to pay back in dividends.

Hey all,

As previously announced we just updated the demo version. It now plays the same as the full game except it includes only the standard Arcade mode which is also limited for 4 minutes of playtime per attempt. Of course it doesn't include any of the solo and multiplayer modes.

We also released 1.5.4 patch release (for the full game) which addresses some scoring issues we've had with both single player and multiplayer modes. As always if you run into issues please let us know here in the forums or at our official discord channel.

Stay tuned for further updates on EA 2.0!

Hey boys and girls!

A little heads up; we're going to be updating our Demo in the coming week.

The current version has been around since last summer (!) and we feel it's high time we update it with the most current graphics, sound and physics.

The demo will still offer the classic Arcade mode, but will no longer have a local leaderboard (it will have a global one instead), and each playthrough will have a hard time limit.

If for some reason you prefer staying with the current version of the demo, simply disable the auto-update for the demo via Steam.

It's time for another update with some exciting changes. We've worked really hard on finalizing our efforts for EA 1 and this will be the last update before we launch EA 2.0 (with the exception of bug fixes/patches if need be).

The most significant update here is in the actual physics of the racket/ball interactions. We did another deep pass and feel the accuracy and ability of players to execute their intended shots have increased dramatically.

We also did a complete optimization pass on all game modes so you can enjoy the smoothest, uninterrupted experience and forget you're not really in a glass dome, deep in space, taking on pulsing neon targets.

This is also a good opportunity to thank everyone on our discord group who participated in the beta program - your feedback and support are invaluable and your attitude is nothing short of amazing.

Here's the change log:

New Features
  • Improved physics, ball handling and plow direction detection
  • Zen mode, an additional arcade mode which is very... zen

Tweaks & Additions
  • Optimizations (both CPU and GPU)
  • Scoring tweaks in both Arcade and MP modes
  • The gravity sling mechanics have changed to avoid abuse in multiplayer mode
  • Gutters now pull the ball much quicker (all modes)
  • Gutters in multiplayer only last a few seconds (to avoid stalling the game)
  • Minor content changes and tweaks
  • Snakes not registering hits bug fixed
  • Several minor bug fixes
  • Arcade levels are shuffled instead of randomized
  • Fixed a bug in Mixed Reality with 2nd controller feature
