Welcome to the first edition of This Month in Marble Blast - a monthly showcase of events, new levels, new records, and more! This also marks the debut of our new official Marble Blast Community YouTube Channel! Check it out!

A lot has happened in the last month! Who knew 2021 would be one of the most active years for the Marble Blast community? While you may be aware of some of these changes already, we felt it best to summarize all the happenings in one succinct post. Open Source PlatinumQuest
PlatinumQuest’s source code is now available under the MIT license. Check out the main repository at https://github.com/PlatinumTeam/PlatinumQuest. (Yes, this includes cannon.cs!). But don’t worry, we’ll still keep an eye on things and publish official game updates periodically throughout the year. Pull requests are welcome!
Two new moderators are being added to the team: Doomblah and Go’way! Both have been prominent members for several years and are excited to continue the ongoing legacy of the Marble Blast Community.
IsraeliRD has officially retired from the Marble Blast community as of January 1st after an astounding ~20 year streak. However, all streaks eventually end, and IsraeliRD leaves behind one of the most impactful legacies within the community with hundreds of hours of YouTube content, two incredibly successful mods, hundreds of custom levels, and more forum posts that we had to import from Proboards than we care to admit. We wish him the best of luck wherever his journeys may take him.
HiGuy and Derpking will officially retire from their moderator and administration roles within the next few weeks. They still plan on working on future updates to PQ, just not as community moderators.
Aayrl will not be part of the moderation team going forward, but will continue to assist with administrative capabilities, working directly with the new leadership team to ensure the smooth operation of the Marble Blast Website, leaderboards, and online capabilities.
We wish you all continued success and enjoyment of the little indie game we’ve grown up with as we transition to the next generation of this community.
