Trial by fire. Community feedbacks from the live demo



Hey sumos !

You were about 600 to participate in the Sumocrats demo, way more than expected !

Sumocrats had to undergo the pressure of a release before it could be opened to a wider public. So we launched the first Alpha without any advertising or press relations campaign. Thank you, everybody, for being so many to test our game! The objectives of this Alpha were simple. Test the general gameplay, feel the rhythm of the game and test the matchmaking in real conditions.

During a week we’ve been watching your games. This has allowed us to isolate the bugs and crashes you have experienced. We had also benefited from your help. Throughout the week you brought up problems that we had not experienced during our internal tests. Thanks to all of you we now know what the strengths and weaknesses of Sumocrats are.

THINGS YOU LIKED :

  • Level Design : Fancy design but we must do more arenas.
  • Character Design / Animations : You loved the animations but we need to work on wall animations and find a way to add more momentum feeling.
  • Game design : Very simple, fast to understand, nervous.
  • Sound Design : Sound design rocks. We will add more tracks in the next release.
If you have any ideas or suggestions, please share it with us on our Discord. It could be the killing feature for Sumocrats !

THINGS WE NEED TO IMPROVE :

  • GUI: Ok for a clean GUI but it cannot be at the expense of the game understanding.
  • Crashes and bugs : To many crashes reported. The loadings are way too long.
  • Matchmaking : Not enough players. The invite features is not perfected yet.
  • Lag : The ball glitches, networking can be improved.
  • Tutorial : We should add some AI to train new sumos.
We made an update during the first days of Alpha ( See patchnote ). You can still report them on the SUMOCRATS Discord to help us improve the game.

For those of you who haven’t managed to join the 2v2 games, we advise you to watch the very good Ciekmate streaming. You will see players who exploit the simplicity of Sumocrats’ mechanics to invent new ways of playing. (The back dribbling is just incredible).

We’re getting back to work quickly, see you soon for the next alpha!
