This isn't meant just for events organized by us in the Re-Volt I/O team. I strongly urge everyone, from all sides of the community, to join in. Having a centralized place of discussion for this can be very useful, especially for planning things like meetups (and I hope we'll have more than just one of those).
Firstly, for brainstorming and general discussion, I recommend joining us on Discord, in the #20th-anniversary channel. It is more fast-paced and may be better suited for some initial planning. Once plans become more set in stone, I strongly advise to have them posted them in this topic, to make it easier to keep track of them. I'll keep this post updated with more information as things progress, and will eventually have the events properly listed on the main re-volt.io site as well.
Ideas so far
- We (the RVIO team) are thinking of organising a meetup somewhere in Germany. Ideally, we could try to prepare some retro PCs to celebrate the anniversary with an old-school LAN party.
- Kipy & Trixed are planning on releasing a big pack of 20 cars on the anniversary. More info here.
- We could potentially start working on a video or two to document the history of the game and its community. I am personally interested in this, but will need the help of some old veteran members (veteran as in before 2009, if not early 2000s) to discuss the old days with.
