Steam Leaderboards

For those of you who follow my twitter, this comes as no surprise, but we're currently working on implementing Steam leaderboards for Arcade Mode!

So, a few nights ago me and Teddy sat down and discussed what we wanted the interface to look like. To begin with, we listed everything we wanted it to include:

Some of you have wondered how we'll deal with single and multiplayer Arcade Mode runs, and the answer to that is that we'll separate them into four different groups. Basically, there will be a 1p, 2p, 3p, 4p and Local highscore, and when browsing scores you'll swap between those by pressing up or down.

We also wanted you to be able to see the score of your friends as well as where your own highest score is compared to everyone else, so you'll also be able to filter the highscores on those variables, which you do by hitting tab (or select, I believe, on controllers).

Above is a mockup I made of what the interface will look like! The three top scores will feature the player's avatar, and pressing right will fetch another 7 scores for you to view.

We played around with what the ranking numbers should look like, so that's why there's a bunch of random numbers in circles of various sizes in the box to the right.

In the final version, you'll get a reminder of what button does what at the bottom of the screen as well, as with the rest of our menus.  :)

I think that's it in terms of these leaderboards for now! Lemme know if you have any questions or suggestions :D
