Yesterday we had our 350th Caromble! Friday. Wow! Luckily it’s not just a special day because of this number, but also because we have completed the creation of the skill level: Race!. A level where the goal is to reach the portal as fast as possible, whilst manoeuvring your ball around and over obstacles as it were a platform game. Lose your ball and you can say bye bye to your highscore.

Race has been an idea of Peter for a very long time. He believed it would be the coolest skill level you can imagine. We were skeptical. It took incredibly long before he started developing it and even in development it just seemed like, meh…

Yesterday Raymond and I (Pascal) have wrapped up the final things in the skill level and when I realized that I was screaming and bouncing on my chair whilst trying to get a highscore.. or no… just to try and reach the end of the level, we realized that Peter’s dream has become reality.

Race is my favourite skill level for the moment and I’m quite proud of my highscore of 1:17. Here is a video of one of my runs where I reached the end. The part with the charge ball in the end gave me a stress level I hadn’t experienced ever before.
