After 4 Long Years, It’s Finally Here!!!

In July 2017 PlatinumQuest was released to the world. Runners from around the globe started competing for the fastest times right away. Records were set, new routes and tweaks were found, records were destroyed again and again. Everyone worked tirelessly to make sure this rampage is as good as it could be by utilizing all the fastest strategies and tricks. Now, after 4 long years, it’s finally here!!! This is the biggest world record rampage yet, with 31 runners and over 200 world records. 

PQWRR is split into 10 videos: Tutorial, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, Bonus, Hunt, 100% Quota, Nest Eggs, and Bloopers which will be released over 10 days, starting on December 22nd 2021 and finishing on December 31st 2021.

We hope you enjoy! https://youtu.be/QQlI_XP6F6w

PlatinumQuest Update 2.5.0 is Here!

As you all know, in the middle of March the old dev team decided to release their last update to PQ. Ever since then a new team of developers have been hard at work to bring us a new update and we are excited to announce that it is finally here! 


RandomityGuy took the time to make sure this update worked for Mac users as well as managing all the backend stuff to get the update built and pushed to everyone, this update would not have been possible without him. 

daniel741852 made all the new Marble Blast Ultra graphics and fixed some other graphical inconsistencies across the game.

main_gi fixed a ton of bugs including the gem madness bug, the teleport respawn exploit, the flair bug, and lots more, as well as adding the new experimental multiplayer modes.

Blasted made all the leaderboards levels accessible offline and added some new offline levels from Marble Blast Mobile.

Connie, along with daniel, created brand new camera paths and level previews of every single custom level on the leaderboards as well as updating all the ones for the MBU levels to show the new graphical changes. She also made multiplayer levels accessible offline.

 

Each of these people did so much more than that quick summary, the full changelog is listed below. Thank you to each and every single one of you for everything you’re doing to continue to keep this game alive. We hope you enjoy this new update!

New Beginnings

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!

Staff Changes

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.

First, I want to congratulate the new moderators. Doomblah and Go'way are passionate and dedicated community members, and I hope they'll do well.

Also wow, these are some pretty big changes. Everything that's happened lately has gotten me quite emotionally invested. It's been a wild month, but I hope everything settles down soon and that this really does become a new beginning for the game and the community. PQ open source is a really promising step, and I'm sure that the game will continue seeing improvements and stuff.

I also just personally want to say thank you to HiGuy, Matan, Derpking, and Aayrl for your many years of running this community. The amount of work and dedication you put into this, as well as your own actual money, is impressive and we wouldn't be here without all your hard work. So thank you so much for that, and I hope your lives have been improved by working on this game, but also by moving on from this game. I hope you are all doing well now.

I'm thankful for the past but also super excited for the future of this place. I can't wait to see where all this goes!

Come discord, brah

If you're a new visitor you might think this community is inactive, but we mostly moved away from the good ol' days of the forums, though they do see some activity.

After registering on the website, the Community tab on the top bar gives you direct access to the Forums, the Webchat (PlatinumQuest Online chat) and a direct link to join our Discord community server, with more than 300 members, variety of channels to chat on and a cool assortment of memes emojis.

  

Credits to FlavoredSaucer for the squishy marble gif. You should check out more of his work on the discord server!
