World’s first live-stream interactive arcade game :toot:

It’s been a massive privilege to work with the team at Microsoft on brand new interactive Mixer tech for this :shock: 8-)

I'd not previously heard of this technology, 'Quake - but it sounds amazing! - congratulations, dude! I guess it's something that'll be available on the PC - and maybe Xbox? - versions of the game?

Hey Jawa! Yeah it is in the game on release for Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Also I think Microsoft are doing a live stream of it tonight on the Mixer show.

Edit: of course only the streamer needs the game. Everyone else plays via any web browser.

The underlying tech is fantastic - super super low latency.

But yeah, the experience has been great. If you hunt around the web for Microsoft’s 2018 GDC conference, you’ll find they based there whole mixer talk on our game implementation - quite a surprise to us at the time!!!

Just pre-ordered, worth pointing out that there's 10% off the price on Switch if you pre-order the game.

Thanks for the support H! I hope you enjoy the game in a couple of weeks.

...and yes pre-order is £8.99 on Switch right now.

It seems like its a good price point for the game to me (the normal price that is).

A lot of the well received indie games on Switch have put me off by being priced above £15, obviously price point is something varies game to game and I'd imagine there are quite a few factors that as a consumer I don't really totally understand that go into a decision on what the price point of any particular game is. But I can say that even as someone who spends probably more than a fair amount of money on gaming is concerned, it is something which definitely is a big factor in what games I'll pick up and when.

Really looking forward to getting in to this, its been a while since I played any kind of shooter and even longer since I played a game like this (probably Uridium 2 on Amiga).

We took a lot of advice when setting the price point, and you’re correct it’s more complex to set than it might appear. Happy you think it’s about right though.

Hi Dual, I’m under various NDAs and am not sure if that is open domain knowledge or not.

Judging by various payment processing distribution etc fees elsewhere I'd say it's at least 15% when you include licensing and positioning etc

Tell you what Starquake, I'll buy this if you promise your next game is inspired by Paradroid/Quazatron. Deal?

That's a great Nintendo Life review!

Its controls are nice and simple: the left analog or D-Pad control your ship in eight directions


...if only the left joycon actually had a D-Pad though :(

Still getting it on Switch, don't worry!
