We recently sat down with Nicholas Tang from thesmartlocal.com to do an interview on the mod and our new studio. The full interview, with some exclusive pictures, is available on their site.
Here's a few of the questions we were asked:
"Tell us a little more about Octoshark Studios, where it is located, what is the office and people like and how many MacDonald outlets are close by?"
"The mod has been in it's development cycle for 6 years and counting, that is a lot of commitment and dedication to a project which you are willingly releasing for free. Does the formation of Octoshark Studio change any of that philosophical mindset?"
"Does that mean we might see Pirates, Vikings and Knights 2 as a standalone product in the future similar to what Torn Banner Studios did with Chivalry: Medieval Warfare?"
Beginning Sunday, April 28 at 3 pm EST, PVK fans can watch live weekly broadcasts of the Man-at-Arms beta tests. At these live tests, fans may ask questions of the dev team, and will be able to see the Man-at-Arms in action, as well as a few other surprises (new maps, anybody?).
The broadcasts will be hosted by Denshin and Davidian, and will eventually be archived on our Youtube channel. To see what these broadcasts will offer, check out the teaser below:
You may submit your questions early to our Facebook or Twitter pages, or use #pvklive and @pvkiidev during the broadcast to ask them live!
Subscribe to our Youtube channel to stay up-to-date with our videos, and check us out on Twitch.tv. The PVK Dev team will be testing our live broadcast this Saturday by playing a game together. The game choice and time have yet to be decided, so subscribe to our feed for notification.
If you've played in public servers, you've likely come across the hard-to-kill beta tester known as Denshin. If you've been fortunate enough to run into this anomaly of PVK ownage (or unfortunate enough), you've no doubt had your skull split a few times.
Well, Denshin has been kind enough to start a Youtube channel dedicated to commentary that will help get you to his level.
Take, for example, his newest upload, which teaches you the art and importance of using Specials.
For more great instructional videos on the art of wreaking havoc in PVK, be sure you subscribe to his channel. With a little practice, and a lot of patience, you'll be able to return a few skull-splitting blows
