Today we’d like to share with you a few announcements regarding Marble Blast Platinum.
We have now released MBP 1.20 revision 2 for Mac. While it does not add new features, this revision is designed to support installation of MBP using the newer MacGamesStore copy of Marble Blast Gold. If you already have Marble Blast Platinum installed, you do not to update to this revision. However, if you could not install the game and recently bought MBG from the MacGamesStore, please download this revision to be able to successfully install Marble Blast Platinum. Additionally, we fixed the level editor button, cleared out some console spam, and made a couple other small fixes that are listed in the Change Log.
1.20 for Windows was last indefinitely suspended, and now we can confirm it will not be released. Instead, we are working on a totally new version! A bucketload of fixes, new features, and changes to the Leaderboards system are all part of the plan. Mac users will also have fully-functional Leaderboards: a massive improvement. We are very excited to continue development of MBP while PlatinumQuest is still in the works.
All of these updates will be possible thanks to two new staff members for the Platinum team! We’d like to welcome Hi Guy and Jeff to the Marble Blast Platinum team and thank them for their hard work. As always, Seizure22 will continue as lead coder for PlatinumQuest, ensuring that its release will not be delayed due to development of MBP.
Keep on rollin’,
The Platinum team.
