Game Designer William Ho from United Front Games has passed along ModNation Racers updates, and what else is new at UFG as they listen to feedback on their PS3 title.
To quote: I'm excited to give you some updates about ModNation Racers and what's been cookin' at United Front Games.
I can't believe it's been a year since we announced ModNation on stage at E3, now it's out in the world! It's been exciting to see the massive amounts of Racing, Creating, and Sharing going on.
Our dev team couldn't be happier to see our supporters enjoying the product of two and a half years of love and labor. We enjoy playing ModNation Racers as much as you do.
Now while there a lot of people that love the game, we know there are some issues that are affecting the fun factor of ModNation, and we just want to say-
United Front Games is with you for the long haul.
I'm always asked, "what are you guys up to now?" The answer is always the same: job number one is actively monitoring and supporting the ModNation community.
We are amazed by your published creations every day. We're enjoying online races with you. We read your forum postings and your tweets. We discuss all of your suggestions, no matter how big or small. We watch. We play. We listen.
We are working on multiple fronts to make your ModNation Racers experience even more fun. You've already seen some improvements in our online racing. Our friends at Sony San Diego Studio officially launched community.modnation.com so you can stay connected to the ModNation community from just about anywhere. And there's much more to come.
With that said, I have something exciting stats to share with you. The ModNation community has exceeded the 500,000 creation mark! We worked hard to build the most accessible, freest, and deepest sandbox for you to play in. With a half million creations and counting, I think we achieved that goal. Here's just a few of the half million awesome creations created by the ModNation community:
Mod: Glass-eye Phil, Creator: Reavyn1
Kart: Glass Eye Television Repair, Creator: Reavyn1
Track: Modcoaster, Creator Name: hellstorm0157
Also, you've played more than 1,000,000 ONLINE RACES. That's an amazing milestone for a community that's only a few weeks young.
We can't thank our fans enough for your support. We've appreciated your enthusiasm since we revealed ModNation Racers at E3 one year ago. We're thrilled with all of the e-mails, forum postings, tweets, and fan sites, so keep 'em coming!
We are dedicated to make the best possible Race, Create, Share experience possible and know we're working hard on some rock-solid upgrades to ModNation Racers.
