Hi all, just an ultra quick one to share with you the latest promo trailer for Super Indie Karts which reveals the tracks that will make up the first Ultra Cup!
As you can see, things have changed up a little.. Hills, twists, and corkscrews oh my!
This 64-like content was originally pencil-planned as a sequel kickstarter project (SIK64), but at the end of last year I made a crazy decision to cram it all together into one glorious '90s kart game that would be a celebration of more than one '90s kart game generation, rather than coming back to ask you all to contribute to a 2nd game's budget. The major upside is that you now get an even better game for your game library than originally planned.
As it's been a while since the last indie cup was added, you'd be forgiven for worrying that the project had been put on ice. But it's just been a while because getting all of the game objects to work as expected, in a world that's no longer flat, took a little more time than foreseen to reprogram. The first Ultra Update has a release date of July 19th (which is coincidentally, the day the ice age ended).
I really hope you're all happy with this move, I know it adds to the development timeline but it undoubtedly makes the game a heck of a lot stronger and this new dimension really adds a lot of space to experiment with track designs! And while things might not happen as quickly as we'd first hoped, you can trust I'll continue turning this project into the best kart game I can, and that everything that was promised (and more) will be delivered to you.
While I've been keeping my nose to the grindstone, I've still been able to reach out to more cool indie devs and I'll have some more great crossovers to show you in the next Ultra Update!
