Multiplayer & PAX - Polygon Article

Posted by Hidden Path Entertainment, AMD & Razer (Creator)

Hi Team,

I just wanted to take a quick moment and point out the release of Part 3 of Polygon's behind-the-scenes coverage of the making of Defense Grid 2.  This article not only goes in depth on our preparation for PAX, but this time around, they brought a camera crew who captured 36 hours of coverage.  They boiled that down to 9 and a half minutes and I love the coverage of lead designer John Daud and his approach on making multiplayer work.

Enjoy the article and video:

Also, as an aside.  Our forums and path to UserVoice were hacked last Saturday and we expect to have them back up and running on Monday again after they've been repaired.  Sorry for the radio silence on the forums.

      Well, the Polygon article is a really great in-depth look of the development process. I hope we see more of this amazing stuff...

      Damn, must've been worse than I thought it was when I pointed out the hack to you. Why would anyone want to even do that? People are just jerks I guess.
