On this day, 10 years ago...

Marble Blast Platinum came out on December 23rd, 2007, by a small group of 11 community members who have worked tirelessly for 13 months. Back then it contained 120 new levels (and 27 more Director's Cut levels) which challenged many even to this day, and quickly became Marble Blast Gold's first full-scale modification. What it turned out to be 10 years later was far beyond anyone's imagination.

As one of the co-leaders of this successful mod, I'd like to thank not only the many staff and developers through the last decade, who spent countless hours and nights to create a small wonder, but also the community. Thanks to your constant support and feedback we kept on developing this mod for all these years and further establish it to be a central part of this wonderful game.

Ten years after the original 1.00 release, we now take for granted what once was an impossible dream: Leaderboards, Multiplayer, a new Shader Engine, an Engine Extension mod, almost 4,000 custom levels, new powerups, features and content that would have made anyone 10 years ago cry with absolute joy.

To all of you, thank you for sticking with us for all these years.

Happy Marble Blasting,
Matan

My first time playing Marble Blast Gold is when I really young, (when I was like 4 or something) I got way too excited for the various obstacles to roll through, and then I saw PlatinumQuest. PlatinumQuest was a really good game overall, and it combines all the levels from the orginal MBG with 3 other mods. When I see this post coming, I also feel happy with you guys who made this mod, too, with 10 years of scripting and building maps, good job for making this far.

I started playing MBG when I was a child (somewhere in 2008-2009). Later I found out about Marble Blast Platinum. And just now - about newer version of this one - PlatinumQuest. During this time I completed only MBG levels. Anyway I enjoyed this game at all. I wanna say that Marble Blast and its community is really cool and calm.

I can't type posts in English properly, so i'm sorry. xd

We're working to resolve that issue this week. The Frightfest and Winterfest achievements, as well as other in-game achievements, will be showing up on the website profile soon.

Thanks for your patience,

Will the new achievements show up in your profile on the forums unlike the new Frightfest ones from this year?

Yes, there is. The song will play whilst playing multiplayer maps that are themed to fit Winterfest.

Also, you will be able to find that music file within the files of PlatinumQuest itself, except you may have to do a little digging.

Congratulations to all who participated in the tournament! We hope you had as much fun participating as we did hosting!

As with previous tournaments, unique titles and achievements have been awarded depending on your final standings in the tournament. Keep in mind all rewards are inclusive with the exception of the gift card awards (e.g., Frostfire will have all of the achievements listed below). Due to the unique prize pool, the rankings were arbitrarily determined by IsraeliRD at the inception of the event to divide contestants based on Participation (all players), Semi-Finals (Top 4), Finals (Top 2), and Winner:

All Participants: Achievement and the 'Jolly' Prefix Title.

4th Place: Achievement and the 'Jovial' Prefix Title, as well as a $10 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

3rd Place: Achievement and the 'Jovial' Prefix Title, as well as a $15 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

2nd Place: Achievement and the 'Jocund' Prefix Title, as well as a $25 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

Winner: Achievement, 'Mirthful' Prefix title, and the winter blue trophy flair icon, as well as a $40 USD Steam/Amazon Gift Card sponsored by IsraeliRD.

Enjoy!

That played out exactly how I expected it to

Frightfest is Here!

Hey all,

I'm happy to say that Frightfest is finally here, and will be available until November 10th.

Here's some exciting changes and additions we've added to this years spooktivities:

  • We've spooked out of hiding 4 new levels and gave a creepy makeover to All Angles.
  • Ghosts now whisper over 110 creepy voices, and have been properly trained to make gameplay much more enjoyable rather than constantly rolling away in fear!
  • In an (un)predictable fashion, the Boog E. Man managed to find a few new spots to be buried alive, and there's a new candy corn for those with the sweet tooth to locate.
  • If you have a lower-end system, we made changes to the visible distance of the scenery shapes so that they won't render all the time and lag you.

Lastly, since 2.1.6 we fixed some outstanding items as well as some bugs and crashes which may occur if you spook your game too much, and upgraded the version number to 2.2.0. More surprises are in store, so check out this update as soon as possible!

- Matan

P.S. - Are you doing anything at the end of the year? Because we have something coming up... :)
