Big release today: The SAGE Game Manual (Big shout-out to Chip & Mo!)

SAGE is absolutely leading-edge, pioneering, on-chain game design.
– Michael

People will be able to build 3rd party services for the 6 programs that power SAGE on-chain.

The team is now targeting February for the devnet launch. However, it will likely be limited and might not contain all the announced functionality.

Showroom R2

Big release today: R2 will be released on the Epic Game Store right after the Joni Awards wrap-up!

Michael mentioned some of the things we can expect from this release:

  • Character selections & Skin selection
  • Two different Time trial courses
  • Dogfighting arena (PvE)
  • Multiplayer support is there, but still very buggy.
    Good to know: Multiplayer sessions are Peer-2-per hosted experiences (no servers, players are hosting)

The upcoming R2.1 will bring:

  • Upgrade to Unreal Engine 5.1 (allows for larger maps)
  • Adding the train (lobby of sorts). The first arrival in the Showroom will then drop you at the Train station.
  • Group Chat & Proximity Voice Chat
  • A possibility that Ground racing may be added

Major thank you to the community for being with us through the thick and thin [of this year]!
