Friday Development Update: Prepare for DeRace Game Beta 💥
Beta is ready! All we have left to do is connect the last few pieces together and TEST TEST TEST! So next week… we will be gaming hard! 🎮
You can already hear beta galloping in the distance
All parts of the beta are fully functioning and ready for testing! We have finalised back-end implementation of new contract creation on blockchain this week. The UI for everything around the races is almost complete, we started hooking it up to the data we get both from the blockchain and from our back-end.
And the winner is…
Good news for the winners! 🏆 Some horse races are so competitive that it’s difficult to see which horse has crossed the finish line first. To solve this issue, we have created the slow motion finish which allows players to better distinguish the winner from the other horses.
In-game camera angles
We have also added different camera angles, which allows you to view the 3D races from different vantage points. You can switch the camera view easily while watching the race as you prefer. 🍿
Ensuring transparency of the races
Horse racing has a long history of fraud and corruption and we are using the blockchain technology solutions to ensure fair and entertaining racing experience for all the participants.
We have added race logging to the blockchain state and as separate events, that will be visible on PolygonScan. The full race history and participants will be decentralised and completely visible on the blockchain. Anybody can access this information to verify that races were provably fair and not tampered with.
Billboards in hippodromes
Watch out for the billboards: hints, announcements, partners or maybe just…ads? This week we updated the hippodrome environment with the ability to post different kinds of content to the billboards.
We will include some interesting content from upcoming events or our partners in the game beta version. Keep an eye on them, you might see something unexpected! 😉
Next week expect a 💥BIG BANG💥:
- NFT drops
- Major announcements
- Full gameplay reveal
And many more surprises!
Happy DERCEMBER 🎅
