GDC or Bust : Part 3

Feb. 24, 2015

Below is the third in a series of posts documenting the final development of Deluxe Turbo Racing 360 for GDC. I hope to continue the posts up through GDC and after.

Part 3: Fabricating the Play Surface

Over the weekend we worked to finish the playing surface for DTR 360. Our design called for a 40″ x 40″ play surface, very flat, with foam core on top to reduce noise.

One of the major design decisions for DTR360 has been to really focus on the quality and design of the physical components. A high quality fabrication for our controller boxes not only enhances the experience, but also allows us to explore some new territory and perhaps stumble upon some interesting ideas.
