Songbird Production Race Meet-Up
Date: Saturday, May 7, 2022
4:00pm (Europe/Paris) - 5:00pm (Europe/Paris)
Some of you have asked when we’re going to organize online races for 8bit-Slicks using the Hub. Our first “official” event is going to be this Saturday, May 7, at 9:00am USA Central Time / 4:00pm France / 11pm Japan. We’ll play for about an hour, and players can come and go as needed since each race only takes about 5 minutes.
This first event is a great chance to get your Hub configured and try your hand at racing (although I’ll warn you — a couple people are pretty good and much better than me!). Simply set up your wifi credentials on the Hub, then create an account at 8bit-slicks.com. You will then enter your account credentials in the 8bit-Slicks game.
If you are successful, then you should see a variety of servers hosting races. We’ll pick the first servers which allow 4 players to race. If we fill up more than one, then we’ll use the next one too.
The Slicks cartridge includes a simple chat program to allow some real-time communication, including quick messages to indicate “Ready” or to congratulate players after winning. However, if you’d like a way to chat in real time, please join us on Discord at https://discord.gg/yyrnVsZBCH.
Please reach out via email or on Discord if you have any trouble getting your Hub set up for the first time. Thanks and we’ll see you on Saturday! 🙂
