Hey all! Alex again, and I'm here to show off our Time Trial game more and the accompanying music track.
Time Trial is pretty much just what it sounds like, they are a type of map where you get from one point to another in the speediest manner possible. These maps are usually very simply built (blocks mostly) and straight forward, although they are a lot of fun especially when you get into the little puzzles (See 1:24 in the video).
In the future we plan on expanding this with online scoreboards so you can test your metal against the community, as well as maybe some achievements so you can see if you stand a chance against the Developers. =]
Enough said, below is the video of the new time trial mode, a new map and a new music track which Spencer will talk a little bit about below.
Spencer here, just to talk briefly about the role music will play in time trials. Obviously, since the player's objective is to move quickly, the music will match the mission. Expect to hear faster-paced, driving and thumping pieces during time trial, probably edging nearer to the genres of techno and electronica. The track included below is my first attempt at composing anything of the sort and is currently being used as our time trial music. As usual, any criticism is welcomed. Enjoy.
Thanks so much for following Tension, a little review of our game was posted on UserCreated.org if any are interested, neat little site pretty tuned into the modding community. There will be a little Q&A session on there about us shortly so expect a post about that.
As always comments/suggestions/feedback are appreciated. Anyone have a good idea for a new feature?
