As mentioned in our last post, Social Sharing Feature is now available to the new version of Jaggy Race! You can now easily share your records with your all friend through your favorite social networks!
Starting from now the price is permanently cut by 33% and set to $1.99 / £1.49 / €1.99 / 200¥ / AU$1.99 / 12.50 CNY / 2.10 CHF!
Tracks unlock fixed
Game progress for each worlds is now corrected. To access next track (i.e. Twisted Pyramid 4), you have to win the actual track (Twisted Pyramid 3). And to access to bonus tracks it’s needed to get at least “3 tracks with 3 stars “or “5 tracks with (at least) 2 stars” (check the in-game help “?”).
All unlocked karts remains accessible after updating the game.
PLEASE NOTE: after updating the game all your records are still saved, even if you can’t access to the track because you skipped some previous ones (due to the unlock bug). When you sequentially unlock the necessary tracks, your record will appear again.
Example: You played Hyper Icescape 1, 2 and 5. After updating Jaggy Race!, you will have to play and get at least 1 star in Hyper Icescape 3 and 4 before accessing again to the 5th track and see again the record.

German title on start game screen is now fixed
Complete track name added to “win screen”
Facebook button added to the credits screen

Price cut of 66% for Indie gravity platform racer game Jaggy Race! as part of Windows Red Stripe Deals
Selected by Microsoft the indie 2.5D speed-platform/kart racing game Jaggy Race! is set for a major price drop as part of an upcoming official Microsoft Red Stripe Deals promotion for the Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 versions of the game.
This version of game is a direct port of the PlayStation Mobile version of the popular title and includes all of the recent updates and visual enhancements. Compatible with all suitable Windows 8.1 enabled devices as a universal app, once purchased you will be able to play the game on your PC, Windows Phone or Windows tablet and offers keyboard and touch input (device dependent).
Jaggy Race! has already been critically acclaimed on the PlayStation Mobile and the website Vita Player rated the game 9/10 and said that “… it’s not only one of the best PSM games that I have played but one that could stand up on its own as a regular PS Vita release… Offering plenty of variety and more than enough longevity to keep even the most hardened of gamers happy, this represents incredible value for money. An essential purchase.”
The Red Stripe Deals will run between 28th May 2015 until 3rd June 2015 and the pricing for the game is as follows:
After about three weeks, and lots of tweaks, Jaggy Race! is now running pretty smooth and looks amazingly good on the Freevi FlightDeck 3D tablet!
The direct porting from PS Vita and integration of the original 3D SDK, resulted with a frame rate of about 15FPS. Now, also thanks to the Freevi developer community, Jaggy Race! is running at a pretty solid 25FPS. Compared to the normal 60FPS that we’re used to see it running, it doesn’t seems that much, but you have to see it running on this gorgeous 3D display, I quickly changed my opinion: it’s simply amazing!
For now that’s all! Development continues by testing and improving the game to get the best out of the 3D display.
To get a first idea of how Jaggy Race! looks in 3D, enjoy these stereoscopic screens directly taken from the tablet! ..of course you need a 3D screen to see them correctly
Lastly, some note related to the screens:
FPS are related to the “split view”, when the 3D display is active it drops to 25FPS.
the first of these screens does have HUD active, when looking at it in 3D the HUD looks stretched and overlapped because the image is entirely projected in 3D, that obviously won’t happen when the game is running on the Flightdeck
The small 3-cubes icon on top-left of the screens, will be disabled on the final version, this is just part of the Freevi SDK made by InS3D.com
Yes I know, it’s time to buy Unity Pro full version..
We started to port Jaggy Race! to Windows (Windows Store) and Windows Phone too. There is still no release date set, but we guess the first version will already be released in the first quarter of the year.
During the first tests on a Nokia Lumia 625 we were very impressed seeing Jaggy Race! running very very smooth on it!
Furthermore, we are very excited to announce that we won a Flightdeck 3D Tablet, therefore we’ll participate to the Freevi 3D Challenge by porting Jaggy Race! to this new 3D tablet.
Stay tuned to get the latest news and again: we wish you a fantastic and prosperous 2015!!
From development point of view, it was really easy to implement it, I had just to activate the PS TV flag, build the app and the game was already running on my PS TV console!
Lot of excitement, but we weren’t completely satisfied. Something was wrong.. The game runs really well, but on a big screen it seemed all too big. Solution? Yes! Use a wide angle lens to avoid that, and it works really really well!
In this new version we replaced “Easy camera” option with “Wide angle” option (activated by default) which gives you a wider view that fits perfectly for your PS TV and of course this new experience runs also very well on the PS Vita too!
In a snapshot, this update contains:
PS Vita TV support!
Wide angle view option (instead of “Easy camera” option)
Normal view is now also slightly wider than before
Twitter & Web buttons moved to credits GUI
Change language bug fixed
Finally, to give you a better idea of the difference using the wide view, check out the following screens.
