As always thank you all for the feedback! We appreciate each and every comment, so don’t hesitate to leave your impressions and questions here or on Steam. This game wouldn’t be possible to make without the support from the community so we take every bit of criticism into consideration (and feel honored to hear your praises).
A Festive Demo
Next Fest is upon us and so we’ve decided to treat you guys to a new and improved demo of Okinawa Rush! In this iteration, you get to play through Tutorial, Stage 1, and Master Challenge!, where you face off against The Kung-Fu Masters. The demo will be available until the end of the festival (June 22nd)
Run Like The Wind
Hope none of you fighters skipped the leg day! To celebrate Next Fest and the release of our new demo update we’re running a Speedrun Contest. You can compete in 2 categories, and yes, there are prizes. To those unfamiliar with the term, speedrunning is basically trying to beat a game as fast as possible, and that’s what this contest is all about. The game obviously being the Okinawa Rush demo. Why speedrunning? Okinawa Rush is a game perfect for this type of competition, and it even features a built-in timer, so it was really a no-brainer to do this.
How does it work?
Players decide which category they want to participate in and record themselves playing through the corresponding stage. The 2 categories are Stage 1 and Master Challenge!.
TWO IMPORTANT THINGS:
- In Stage 1 Category we compete on “Purple Belt” difficulty, be sure to choose it when you'll launch the stage. In Master Challenge! the difficulty is set to "Black Belt" by default ;)
- Note that one person cannot win in both categories, so choose wisely, warriors!
How to submit?
Every participant has to upload the video of their run to YouTube and link it in the appropriate thread on the Steam forums, marked with their category of choice. The video will enable us to verify your submission. Deadline is June 22nd, 11:59 PM (CEST).
What are the prizes?
👊 A key to Okinawa Rush (the full game)
👊 Digital Soundtrack
👊 Digital Artbook
(all prizes mentioned above will be deliver to both winners on a release day)
👊 AND a special box full of goodies (stickers, t-shirt, poster and soundtrack on CD) for the winner in Master Challenge! Category :D
Do you have what it takes to blow the competition away?
Be like water, a Stream, to be precise
This Friday (June 18th) we’re doing a Livestream with developers! The stream will take place at 11:00 AM (PT) / 08:00 PM (CEST) - set a reminder!
- Do you have any burning design questions you’ve always wanted to ask?
- Do you have any nice words to pass to the devs?
- Do you have a 12-page document detailing why the position of this one ledge in Stage 1 is breaking the game?
^ If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is your chance! So grab your popcorn, mark the calendar, cancel all the meetings and enjoy the show.
Be there or be square!
That’s it for this update. If you try the demo, please leave us some feedback. We love hearing from you guys and it really helps us make Okinawa Rush a better game.
Till next time, Fighters!
