March Marbles – The Marble It Update!

March Marbles
– March 3 –

It’s a lighter newsletter recap this week – after all the speed and excitement of February, we’re starting off March at a nice, relaxed pace.
In this newsletter, we try a new Beach Ball challenge (with some new ideas percolating in the background), take a gander at previous challenges (a sweep included!), get impressed by a smattering of new level WRs, celebrate more custom level catalogue expansion, and resolve the masterful foreshadowing of last newsletter.

Come stroll with us into March!

Weekly Challenge: Beach Ball

This week, we try some new Beach Ball combos! Thanks to some discussion in #challenges for the boost and some interesting ideas floating around!

If you have challenge combos you’d like to see, or levels you’re itching to see modifiers on – let us know in the Discord!

Bonus points for using the beach ball marble!

Custom Level Catalogue

This last week, the Steam Workshop series of custom community levels expanded to nearly 720 items! This vast catalogue consists of original pieces, remixes of existing levels, modified gameplay, and a few jokes here and there.

Recent additions to this catalogue have come from these authors: Glacier_Husky, VilleOlof, Hyran, berserk, boomer, WhiskyMancer, Koogee Plays, Sevadra, SpaceKitty, UmbraSonset!

As always, you can check out all the recent additions in the Marble It Up! Steam Workshop – and don’t forget to rate your favorite levels!

– In Other News –

In the last newsletter, we hid some cryptic and totally impossible clues as to the future of robotics and our Discord server. (audible gasp)

If – by some miracle – you were able to decode last newsletter’s clues, you’d be able to guess that the bot, Beeper, is coming to the server! We’ll be looking to add it early next week, so be on the look out for a new robot in town. Thanks to VilleOlof and TalentedPlatinum!

Thanks for reading, and have a great March!
