World of Padman got some multimedia attention last weekend at the 12th annual German media awards MB21 - Mediale Bildwelten in Dresden. 'MB21' is the most important multimedia competition for children and young people up to the age of 21 in Germany. The event was organised by the Multimedienkulturzentrum Dresden e.V. and big and small media projects took part. From the 12th to the 13th of November Spawnpoint - Institut für Computerspiel (institute for computer games) organised a workshop called 'Comic Shots'. Participants had around 45 minutes to create their own comics based on World of Padman. They took screen shots from the levels in-game to create their own short stories. We are very excited about this event and would like to show some of the creative results.
Regarding beta tests of the upcoming WoP 1.5, we are close to releasing a 2nd internal beta build. More than 200 bugs were found and squished during the last two weeks. We also added new features like in-game voice chat and support for glowing character skins for team game modes. Meanwhile we are tweaking game-play, item placement and much more. We are heading for a release by the end of this year around Christmas time, if everything works out like we expect. So please stay tuned and support us by voting WoP into the top 50 indie games of the year 2010. To do so, just press the big button at our voting area in our game profile.
