As some of our PC players might have noticed, the Steam version of Runner2 has Steam Trading Cards now! How cool is that?!
In case you aren't familiar with Steam Trading Cards, it's a rad new program that allows you to unlock virtual trading cards as you play certain games. These cards aren't linked to Steam Achievements; you just unlock them at random intervals as you play.
However, you can only gain half a set of cards by playing the game. The other half must be earned by trading and interacting with the Steam community! Then, when you get the full set, you earn a badge (as well as cool virtual rewards). Each time you assemble that set of cards, your badge level goes up! NEAT!
If you already have the game on Steam, go earn yourself some cards! If you don't have the game on Steam yet, go buy it a billion times!
Hey everyone! It's time to reveal this week's Miiverse Challenge Draw winner. For those who missed it or don't own a Wii U, the challenge was to draw a BIT.TRIP character in the form of a piece of fruit. Pretty serious subject matter, we know.
As always, we were blown away by all the awesome submissions we received, and picking a winner was about as hard as picking a favorite doughnut (maple bar, if you must know). But, ultimately, we had to go with Onery's wonderful drawing of CommanderVideo as an apple!:
Time permitting, we recommend firing up the Miiverse and checking out the rest of the submissions. It's probably the only chance you'll ever get to see CommanderVideo in pineapple form, unless we randomly decide to make a game about fruit down the road.
If you have a Wii U and like to draw, we encourage you to participate in next week's Challenge Draw (and the one the week after that, and so on and so forth)! There are no prizes, unless you count the fame that comes with being written about on this here blog. Seriously, last week's winner has since become best friends with people like Danny DeVito and Hoggle from Labyrinth.
Say, do you know what a Challenge Draw is? It's a weekly event where we challenge the Runner2 Miiverse community with drawing cool images based on a specific theme or premise. Our latest Challenge Draw -- which we kicked off yesterday morning -- tasked artists with drawing a picture of CommanderVideo on one of his days off. After much internal debate and indecision, we finally managed to pick a winner:
If you're bummed you didn't win, worry not! As mentioned above, we'll be holding a new Challenge Draw every week -- they'll begin on Wednesday mornings at 10 AM PST, and end 24 hours later. We'll kick off each event by making a post in the Runner2 Miiverse community, and all you have to do to enter is leave your drawing as a comment to that post. There are no prizes (beyond bragging rights and a post on this here blog), but we like to think the fun you'll have while drawing the image is a prize in and of itself.
