As the scorching Scottish summer sun sets, we’re proud to announce that Gyrodisc Super League will be at GamesAreForEveryone Vol.2 at the Mash House in Edinburgh on the 10th September! I can’t believe it’s been over two months since The Hit Point ran the first GAFE back in May. I really enjoyed the barcade-style atmosphere, and was delighted to learn about so many game projects in the nearby area! So please join us next week, you can find out more and buy tickets here!
And since we’re talking about Gyrodisc Super League events, thank you to Dare to be Digital for having us at Dare Protoplay 2015! It felt strange for myself and Jennifer to be back after SIX YEARS (2009!!), yet it was all so strangely familiar. Congratulations to the BAFTA-nominated Pictrail, Pixel Tailors and Mild Beast Games as well as Pathos Studios. A particular shoutout goes to Yeah Yeah Games who won the most important award, the public vote! (which Jennifer and myself won in 2009)
Our most noticeable update of late is our brand new stadium. A colourful dome, it’s dominated by a chunky 90’s-inspired jumbotron and speakers (for making sure everyone sees your arrogant victory dance). Plenty of seating and advertising space, it’s a fine home for Gyrodisc.
Our AI has now been wrangled under control into varying ranges of competence. From dull-witted Easy mode to nightmare-fuel Demonic mode, there’s a difficulty for every player.
Finally, we’ve made scoring a goal more rewarding. The points now burst out of the goal upon scoring and slam into your opponent’s health bar with a mighty shudder. The size and strength of the hit is based on how many points you score, so landing those big three-pointers is now even more satisfying.
That’s it for this week, hope to see you all at GamesAreForEveryone!
