Last year we announced in a blog post that GLITCHERS was permanently moving towards a 4 day work week structure. 5 months on, we’re taking a look back at the impact our new working structure has had on the company.
WHAT IS A 4 DAY WORK WEEK?
The 4 day work week is a part of a global movement to increase not just productivity but also encourage a healthier work-life balance and lower stress levels. Put simply: instead of working Monday – Friday, we work Monday – Thursday then log off for the weekend.
While debate rages online about exactly what the metaverse is, we wanted to share what we’re playing right now, to help get you started. The level of immersion you get from being in VR is unmatched, it really does create new experiences and future technologies that might be part of the metaverse (such as AR and/or NFT’s) are not yet fully realised.
You could argue that the Meta Quest’s digital store front is a sort of early metaverse itself where every app icon is a doorway to a new universe.
There’s estimated to be around 171 million VR users worldwide as of right now – and that number is expected to keep on growing each year. Since Facebook announced it’s rebrand to Meta, more and more people are embracing working, living and playing in this new reality.
Greetings BuyCorp Employees!
Are you tired of working hard for Drive Bucks each week, only to have MASH or Babyman whiz past with a loud “OINK OINK” in a shiny paint job you’ve never even seen before?
Just because we, the devs, drive fast and oink loud doesn’t mean we don’t care about the plight of our loyal BuyCorp delivery drivers.
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… 😵
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:
In the last few weeks we’ve been watching the community feedback to the The Cold As Ice Update that hit Steam last week.
Now the rhythm on these fortnightly community blog posts is picking up, we’re seeing the value in catching our breath from development. Taking a look around to see what you’ve been up to is just as important as making Drive Buy.
Welcome To Drive Buy
Since we have a few new faces around here, allow me to introduce myself: I’m Hugh from Glitchers . I’ll be bringing you announcements on everything Drive Buy through our social platforms and hosting the weekly Twitch Stream. I wanted to give you a rundown of what will you can expect in upcoming Drive Buy blog posts.
Each week there will be a new blog post, alternating between either a development or community update. When there’s a new build to shout about, I’ll be letting you know about all the cool new features and between those weeks I’ll be taking the content you’ve created and writing up a community post. Pretty simple!
This is our first community blog post, so welcome! In future this post will range from player shoutouts to game play tips and tricks showing off the latest new features released in the latest Drive Buy update.
Here, you will also find details of upcoming events, competitions and announcements
