Time to Marble It Up.

Feeling pretty amazingly stoked that the little gem we put out so long ago is still getting some love and play time.

A few of us from the original crew are working on a new homage to the genre.

I'm assuming this is a good venue to share the news?

It's really awesome that some of the original MB/GG team are finding out about PQ and showing themselves to the community...

Hopefully you'll be able to get a better time than 99:59.999 someday lol

Hey Mark, glad to hear you guys are working on a new game :) The market begs for one and the current games are... not too good.

I'm wondering how many messages you just got asking to "test" and "help" :P

A few things from me:
- No traplaunching please. ( see youtu.be/udKk1S9h4JQ?t=473 )
- Wall hits/edge hits are nice and all, but watch out for some level-breaking routes. Check out the world record rampages among other videos of the community's elite to gather some info on what can happen.
- Diagonal movement, as cool as it is, could be blocked off if you wish. A lot of people like it here though.
- If you're using .dts then please watch out for possibility of the marble getting stuck in them or in their collision mesh.
- Avoid tightropes like the plague :x

- I liked the idea of being unable to OOB from the Z axis of whatever gravity you were on.

- Mega Marble wars are a must. Back in the InstantAction days we had a huge blast knocking each other out with Mega Marbles from the top of Promontory.
- Marble stacking was also really fun. Basically people spawn on top of each other, and without moving at all so the marbles are in straight line, and eventually you could shoot yourself extremely high thanks to mega marble stacking).

- Lag on multiplayer... try and do good on it. It got really bad.

Good luck with the development, looking forwards to it :)

We eagerly await any and all news on any projects you and your team are involved in, especially retro arcade platformers!

If you're ever in need of some public testers, I'm sure you can select a few from the community who would be more than honored to lend a hand in the next great marble project.

Glad to hear from you again, Mark. We've missed you guys from the InstantAction days.

I can't wait to see what this little surprise you have cooking up for us is... Keep us updated, I'm sure we're all interested! :)

I don't wanna be that guy... but... I say this in the least offensive way possible (sorry)... how do we know if you're the real Mark?

According to the statistics, you haven't played at PQ at all, and we don't have any other proof other than one post. I'm just worried that this is all a hoax.

I know I'm probably wrong and that some staff member on the site confirms that this is real... but I'd rather know now than in April when the hype train is at maximum speed.

Still, sorry if this post was mean in any way, but I'm still looking forward to the project! :cheer: ;)

Great to hear from you! I look forward to hearing about what is in store!

Guess I don't have to "make marble blast great again" now with all of my Torque3D prototypes if ya'll are doing so! ;) I've tried creating custom physics before in Torque but have never gotten it to feel quite right. Hopefully any new marble game's physics are just as good as the original.

Agreed with all of IsraeliRD's points.

Keep us posted! Thanks for sharing here!
