A select group of creators were among the first to produce content on the latest build of RENNSPORT.
Looking back on the past four months, the RENNSPORT content creator program, PROJECT PITWALL, has been a great success. This program features a group of well-known personalities from the virtual racing world, who are also known for their entertaining content creation. This provided another opportunity for you to see updates on the current build of RENNSPORT. With the creators’ skills and creativity, they produced amazing content that gave you the chance to follow the journey of RENNSPORT through an additional pillar that differs from the official RENNSPORT channels and provides an authentic impression of it. Throughout this year we want to start giving out access keys to the current build of RENNSPORT but until then the content each PROJECT PITWALL member created gives you a good insight into the current status of the game.
WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT
Let’s take a quick look back at the last few months of the project, along with a behind-the-scenes impression.
PROJECT PITWALL debuted in October 2022 as an additional content measure. Inspired by the race control of professional racing teams, the program is not only about creating videos but also about being part of the development process of RENNSPORT. Well-known names of the international virtual racing scene are involved, such as Basic Ollie, Dan Suzuki, Emily Jones, GamerMuscle, Heikki360, Jardier, Overtake.gg’s Rene Buttler and Jonas Schulz, Stradi, Traxion.GG crew of Thomas Harrison-Lord, Dave Cam and John Munro – and is steadily growing with new creators joining the program constantly.
Each creator has their own individual community and style of presenting things, so we gave them unrestricted content ownership to leave maximum creative space for everyone involved. Furthermore, no content was reviewed, or feedback provided, as we wanted to achieve content that’s as authentic as possible without disturbing any impressions or opinions.
VALUABLE FEEDBACK IN GAME DEVELOPMENT
This transparent approach is an excellent way to involve the creators and their communities in the development process of RENNSPORT. To gather and discuss feedback, a closed Discord channel is available for members of the project. Within certain chats, the exchange with the RENNSPORT team is focused on specific topics and can be filtered and distributed to the development team.
CONNECT TO RENNSPORT EVENTS
In addition to involving creators in the development of the game, PROJECT PITWALL is also the first touchpoint for collaborations with our partner ESL, but also further RENNSPORT events. During the kick-off of ESL R1, Emily Jones, Rene Buttler, James West, and John Munro from Traxion.GG were on-site and involved in either reporter tasks around the esports action or produced content for their channels. For the next events to come we are already thinking of cool ways to integrate PROJECT PITWALL members.
If you are a content creator yourself and feel like joining PROJECT PITWALL, the community team at RENNSPORT would love to hear from you. You can reach out to them via firstname.lastname@example.org
