This September marks the 8 year anniversary of GLITCHERS and wow — what an amazing 8 years it’s been!
For the past year and a half, we’ve been working remotely across the UK and beyond. But despite the strange new challenges the global pandemic has brought, we’ve adapted, focused on the mental well-being of our tight knit team, and rolled with the punches.
There’s plenty to celebrate, but most of all we’re super proud that our little studio has turned 8 years old! It feels like a serious achievement to have so many games, fans and to have pushed the envelope more than a few times on what people expect of games.
In celebration of Japan’s national Golden Week holiday, we’re running a week of exciting events and content in Drive Buy:
✨ Level up in the DOUBLE XP weekend
🚗 A week of extra special, bonus customisation content in the shop!
🎮 Invite all your friends to PLAY FOR FREE with you in the Drive Buy PC Demo
💸 Buy the PC version for 30% off this week
We’re celebrating all… Week… Long!
So grab a shiny new customisation, invite your mates, and deliver some parcels.
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.
Hey BuyCorp Employees!
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 🐖
Calling all Nintendo Switch players: IT’S HERE! 📦
Prospective BuyCorp employees can now get ahead of the queues and pre-order Drive Buy on the Nintendo Switch eShop. That’s not all, we’re also running a 20% discount from now until the 8th of April!
Take the battle to the streets and get your hands on this wacky car combat game before everyone else.
“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!
Greetings, Drivers & BuyCorp employees!
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:
An evil retail empire needs an evil CEO. So, let me ask you, who’s that evil CEO? Jeff Sellmore of course! In this development post we wanted to introduce you to Jeff Sellmore and his wild vision for the BuyCorp empire, after all, every player in Drive Buy is an employee of BuyCorp, so you better get to know Jeff in a bit more detail.
It’s been a great two weeks in development. We’ve made some exciting edits to the build, including a new package design, map changes and more level lighting changes. We’ve been working on improving the game visuals with a focus on improving player visibility and making the delivery flows much smoother.
