Bar Fight Live Vote #2: Back to the Drawing Board?

When we launched version 0.2.0 of Bar Fight Live we were hugely excited as it included the gameplay prototype, which let you get to grips with a punching, kicking Stunt Guy for the first time.

Bu what did you think of it? Alongside this initial demo we asked you to give us your feedback by voting on the following question:

Q: What do you think of the demo’s touch controls?

  • Just right (same again in the next update)

  • Getting there (I’d like to see the controls develop more)

  • Try again (I would like an alternative)

The results were something of a surprise - and another notable landmark in democratic development:

You voted for "Try again"


  • Just right - 5.7%

  • Getting there - 45.7%

  • Try again - 48.6%

That’s right, nearly half of you asked us to ‘try again’ which pretty much means ‘go back to the drawing board’!

Well, that’s the deal. The winning vote decides what we do next and so we’re beginning the process of coming up with new controls for you. The downside to this is that it’s going to push everything back a little and we want to take extra care to make sure the next version of the prototype gets a resounding thumbs up from you. We’ve got some thoughts on how we might get this to you quicker but please be patient – we’re starting again!
