Mad Fellows detail the upcoming Aaero DLC and exactly what the heck they’ve been doing recently.
Paul Norris, Creative Director of Mad Fellows reports. “The biggest change for us here, is that we are transitioning to self-publishing on all platforms. This is something we’ve been determined to do for a while now and, despite being a logistical nightmare to implement, will give us the level of control we need to support Aaero and the community in the way we had originally envisioned. Aside from being temporarily absent from the PSN store, this transition shouldn’t affect players too much. We plan to have all platforms re-released by January, this re-release will include numerous tweaks and improvements as well as some brand new DLC content.”
3 new ships have been created to give players the option of a new look while riding the ribbons.
With names chosen by the Aaero community via Twitter; ‘Sol’, ‘Comet’ and ‘Phaser’ will be priced a $0.99 (£0.69) each. Mad Fellows are aiming to make these available before the end of the 2017.
“We wanted to respond to the call for more ships but also avoid fragmenting the leader-boards. Our answer was optional cosmetic ship skins. You can buy just the one/ones you like and, if you prefer to stick with the original, you’re not at any sort of disadvantage for doing that.”
“We always said that we’d love to support Aaero with DLC if there was call for it. The community asked for more Drum & Bass, so that’s what we set out in search of first.
Finding content for Aaero isn’t easy. We’re looking for awesome music as well as tracks that provide the basis for compelling gameplay. We won’t compromise at all on either of these criteria so selecting tracks is a lengthy process. A friend pointed me to 1000DaysWasted on Soundcloud, it was one of those times where I knew straight away that we had to get these tracks. As I listened, I could immediately imagine how the ribbons would work… Then comes the tense wait after reaching out to the artist to see if they’re up for working together.
Fortunately, 1000DaysWasted was as excited as we were. Before long we’d identified the perfect 3 tracks for a DLC pack dedicated to his music.” The pack contains the tracks “The Sickness”, “Rage” and “Dissonance Constant” fully licensed from 1000DaysWasted’s own label “Night45uk”.
New achievements/trophies are up for grabs as you explore further into the world of Aaero, uncovering more clues to the story behind the events in the main game.
The1000DaysWasted – Drum & Bass Pack is also slated for release before the end of 2017 and will be priced at approximately $4.99/£3.99.
Originally released on April 11th 2017 to rave reviews, Aaero synergizes high-speed sci-fi shooting action with immersive music elements to deliver an amazing audio-visual experience. Driven by an incredible licensed soundtrack from Noisia, Flux Pavilion, Katy B, The Prototypes, and Neosignal, Aaero is something special.
