WIP #006: PubComp – A call for replays

Posted by on July 19, 2011

The long-awaited “new” PubComp site is up. I catch up with Parable about the changes the site has seen already in their first couple of weeks. Steam’s Open ID is being utilised to allow participants to engauge in the entire system with just one login and Phife has brought his own style to the artwork.

There’s a casting call for players to donate their replays. Crowd sourcing to get real experiences for each of the required clips.

The coding is being left open to allow for a multitude of changes to be made to the core design. A forward looking attitude that has payed off already since the potential is there for players to create their own game modes and have servers respond to those conditions without having to recode everything from scratch.

Finally, Parable looks to the future; at an entire prebuilt development package for new coders to get up and running without having to start from scratch each time.
