After an incredible journey we’re pleased to announce that on March 31st we LAUNCHED Drive Buy on Nintendo Switch and Steam. You can now show your rivals who’s boss in this crossplay car combat game with a delivery twist! Pick a drive, get behind the wheel, and CATCH THAT PIG 🐖
Today is International Women’s Day and we’re celebrating at GLITCHERS by showcasing two of our talented female-identifying members of the crew. Jodie & Mairi are our Project Manager and Social & Community Manager respectively and have been at GLITCHERS a little under a year now. Let’s meet them:
“Selling is good, buying is better. Buy more at BuyCorp.”
Jeff Sellmore, BuyCorp CEO
What does every evil megacorporation need? An ace team of delivery drivers to GET STUFF DONE. Let’s meet BuyCorp’s roster:
In Season One of Drive Buy, there’ll be six characters to unlock and play. Each character comes with their own customisable vehicle, a unique play style and handling, and of course a dramatic and probably heartbreaking backstory.
It all began when BuyCorp started to implement a new, dangerous brainwashing technology in the neon cityscapes of Drive Buy. Posters and billboards started to appear encouraging the VERY LOYAL customers of BuyCorp to BUY MORE STUFF. Keep an eye out and you’ll spot them around the game! Just don’t stare at them for too long… 😵
This weekend we dropped all the content for Week 2 – more maps, more modes, more mayhem! Our Two Bridges map is (temporarily) gone and in its place are two exciting unreleased maps for your feedback!
Each week we’re mixing up what’s available to play in the beta, so drivers can expect something new and exciting each time they log in. This week our focus was twofold: the Steam Game Festival, and showcasing two never before seen maps in the Drive Buy universe!
We’re delighted to announce that the Drive Buy beta is NOW LIVE! On Friday 29th we dropped 250 keys and welcomed so many new drivers into the fray over the weekend.
There’s still time to get in on the gameplay though! You can sign up at drivebuygame.com or head over to Steam where we’ll be opening up a playable demo from Wednesday 3rd February at 6pm.
But now that we are live, what exactly is happening during the beta and what can players expect? Well, for starters this beta lasts an awesome 3 weeks and we’ve got heaps of new content rolling out in waves for you to test. Each week of content starts on a Friday, here’s a breakdown:
Since our last dev blog post, we’ve been hard at work getting the FINAL BETA (say what?!) ready for our brand new vehicle combat game ‘Drive Buy’. Thanks to all the fantastic player feedback, that day is nearly here. Make a note in your calendar for the ‘get set, go’ mark on the 29th of January 2021, when we’ll be launching our beta. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter and join our Discord for news and information on how to take part.
So, what’s changed?
Absolutely tons of work has gone into Drive Buy since you last saw it! Even though we’ve been through QA for 90% of the features, we know we’ve still got a few things left we really want your feedback on. Here’s what to expect from the beta:
We come to you today with an exciting announcement, Drive Buy is coming to Steam and Switch in July!
We’re extremely excited to announce this, we’ve been working hard in the background and making sure everything is all ready for release!
You, faithful BuyCorp Employee, can help us in this time! We’d absolutely love it if you could spread the word to all your friends, Wishlist Drive Buy or even come and have a chat with us on any of our social platforms. We’d love to hear your thoughts!
Alongside Steam, we’ll be posting a lot of updates on Twitter and on Discord so make sure to keep an eye out on those places too!
Thanks to everyone that came by our stand at EGX, it was a blast and 4 days of pure eye-opening hands-on delivery driving. We loved every minute of it!
The last week has been a chance to sit down and take feedback on what you all said and how we could turn that into reality. Critical feedback was sparse, mostly people just wanted to get back into the driving seat with their mates and play again and again.
A good sign surely?
But this is what we noticed from watching you all play Drive Buy at EGX:
