    Hey All,

    First and foremost, check out the brand new trailer for FRHD that we will be using for helping promote the game. Some of you may see your ghost! If you have any feedback let us know and we can use it in future iterations.



    Secondly, Free Rider HD is available to play on Facebook starting today with one BIG caveat. If you want to play on Facebook with your current account you need to make sure your Facebook email matches the email you used to sign up (viewable in your account settings) OR if you have already logged in with Facebook, otherwise a new account will be created. Next week we plan to do some long overdue updates to account settings to allow you to update your email, connect with FB login + Google+ login from one account. So if you aren't using the same email or have previously logged in with Facebook and want to have your account merged hold off on playing on Facebook. The link to play is below, this is just one of several steps we will be making to get even more visibility to Free Rider HD!

    https://apps.facebook.com/freeriderhd

    As always, feedback is appreciated and welcomed!

    I think the video is pretty awesome, but I have only one issue with it that I think is pretty major: it doesn't show single player. Every bit of the gameplay shown is with a bunch of ghosts included, some people might take the impression that you have to play like that and not everyone enjoys it. I never play with ghosts because they're distracting.

    sorry about that, figured some people would get caught up, not everyone uses the same email for FB or logged in with FB before.

    having multiple accounts is ok in that scenario, if multiple accounts are created and used to vote up tracks or "game the system" with future planned racing features that is where we will have to take action on multiple accounts. But if you are playing them as 2 separate accounts you are all good :)

    Ya good point, guess we could have showed one for the campaign. For the trailer though we really wanted to pump up the multiplayer aspect as the single player is pretty immediate when you start to play the game and multiplayer aspect not so obvious. Also the multiplayer ghosts made for some more exciting footage :)

    thanks for the input though, we will definitely look to improve that on any future iterations.
