Fans who miss the mixed simulation betting and cosmic horror can rejoice; Blaseball: Short Circuits will start the game on November 1st at 8 am Pacific Time. If you haven’t witnessed the chaos of The Grand Unslam and challenged the Blaseball gods in Snackrific, don’t worry. The Game Band, creator of Blaseball, describes Short Circuits as a clean slate, perfect for novices.
The Beta run of Blaseball ended in the summer, but The Game Band promised to bring it and its 24 familiar teams back. Although this is not a complete restart, Short Circuits will provide opportunities for new and returning players to influence the next form of Blaseball by providing feedback on new betting and election mechanisms. The name of the upcoming series reflects its brief nature, as each short circuit is only two weeks old. The bi-weekly event will adopt completely different rules and structures to help developers achieve a perfect balance in Blaseball 1.0. Hopefully, this functional testing event means that a complete, reimagined version of Blaseball will be released soon.
For anyone who may have heard the whispers of a game featuring random burning and giant peanut-eating squid, but not sure about the full content of Blaseball, here is the outline. Blasting ball It is essentially a baseball simulation running in a web browser. As you have observed, multiple fictitious teams fought head-on within a week, and the results of the game were generated by algorithms based on statistics. If this doesn’t sound like the inexplicable Blaseball you’ve heard of, it’s because what really makes this game so crazy is how fans influence it.
By accumulating wealth-initially limited to betting on game results with in-game currency-fans can earn money to buy snacks, help their team in various ways, and very importantly, buy votes. At the end of each real world week, players can vote in elections that affect the reality of the game. For example, in the first season of the election, fans voted to “open the banned book”, which not only allowed them to see the rule book, but also released the solar eclipse, which burned many fans’ favorite players. However, Blaseball is not the only game that The Game Band has recently produced news. The team’s puzzle game Where Cards Fall will land on Switch and PC next week.
