This week we tackled some usability around joining matches. We wanted to make it super simple and have a backup if there were no games to join the instant you started looking. Drive Buy also needed an easy way to invite other steam friends to join in.
A Match List that feels alive
We used to hide matches in progress, but this week we made them visible and Hugo made their progress visible to players wanting to get into a match. You actually see the match playing out right in front of your eyes! It’s pretty cool and works better than expected. We are wondering how it will scale when the beta opens.
A party for your Steam friends
Drive Buy matches are party sized, being made up of 4 players in total. In that sense, they’re kind of like a party.
We made it
We’re looking forward to working closely with the community, and we’ll be reaching out to ensure that we factor in your feedback and ideas.

Just remember that the game is still in active development and doesn’t represent the final quality that will hit Steam this year.
