Slightly Mad Studios launched the World of Mass Development platform – a revolutionary new way to develop games that gave players a backstage pass to see them being made on a day to day basis, allowed them to talk to the team directly, and play regular iterations of the game based on their membership. Now, one year on, they’re pleased to say that both the platform and the first title to be developed using it – Project CARS – are celebrating their first birthday.
Since they launched, the WMD Portal now has over 80,000 members who have contributed a staggering €1.6m. There have been over a quarter of a million posts in the forums, thousands of screenshots taken, and over a hundred trailers made by the passionate community over there. Not to mention the invaluable feedback they’ve received from polls & bug reports, the amazing work people have done creating custom vehicle liveries, the reference material gathered off their own backs for cars and tracks, the fan sites & Facebook groups created, the people and organizations members have put us in contact with, and the ongoing support that we continue to see each and every day.
Slightly Mad Studios has also shared a new trailer – from member JonZ – for pCars’ first annual anniversary that can be viewed below. Enjoy!
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
