Episode 04:

  • The first official DASH teaser has been rendered, and is ready to be shared either tomorrow or by the beginning of next week. Either way everyone on the Test team will receive notice, along a list of cool press with a good possibility for some indie coverage! I will wait to post the entire trailer here and instead show a small gif of some of the content. (you can watch the trailer on the stream below). The trailer has been produced by Baby Duka and contains an original soundtrack. The movie is made in Aseprite, Photoshop, After Effects and Movavi Video Editor 14. All in Baby Duka studio in Copenhagen. During a very very hot summer :D

  • The WEEKLY FEATURE column on has gotten its first interview submitted. Baby Duka interviews Mr Concerned who is a hardcore DASH level designer and speedrunner. You might have seen him on a stream or two. Check the short story out and get inspired right here. As the community grows the plan is to update the column weekly with new and interesting content creators, gamers and fans!
  • The goal is still to have the alpha out among you testers in July. August will be spent optimizing and testing the entire systems. With your feedback and ideas included! This is a very good moment if you're interested in DASH, to step in, observe, or take part in the development as we're getting closer to a fully playable build.
  • After another successful devstream on Wednesday night follower number 50 joined the club and after the stream Baby Duka received an invitation to the affiliate program on Twitch meaning more, better and higher quality streams (watch stream below)!
  • Much more stuff is going on, and July and August will be so exciting!!
  • Best Runs Vids: I'm trying to remember to edit and upload the best runs from the gameplay streams. Here's one from the bonus stream on Monday!
