Original Run

2012-12-04 - 2013-09-04

Motley Monday was a weekly series hosted by Jiggmin from 2012-12-04 to 2013-09-04 that incorporated user suggestions into Platform Racing 2. The first 22 episodes were short one-to-two minute videos uploaded to YouTube, while ones afterwards were blogs on Jiggmin's website.

Format

Each episode involved adding a popular community-suggested idea to the game, although the way it was presented varied. Earlier episodes often listed other suggestions, both popular and ones picked by Jiggmin, which, while present in later videos, were more downplayed and dropped when the series transitioned to blogs. Later videos also incorporated skits relating to the new feature, such as Jiggmin eating cardboard and searching for ways to obtain money when the Vault of Magics was announced.

Trivia

  • The series was originally planned to also feature updates for other games, including Luna and Platform Racing 4.[1]
  • The time block reviews in episode 19 were from a thread in the Beta Tester's Club.[2]
  • Walking Eggs was always intended to be Alien Eggs, though time constraints forced it to be delayed to next week.[3]
  • The loadout update caused bolding on profiles for the player's name, rank and hat numbers to be removed and placed at the remaining stat number instead. This issue was never corrected.
  • Jiggmin's reasoning for episode 18's two day delay was due to strange dreams he experienced on both nights.[4]
  • Jiggmin partially chose the heart block so he didn't have to add adjustable health for deathmatches.[5]
  • Episode 15 is the only video to lack a cold opening.
  • All videos after episode 8 are closed captioned in English.
  • Episode 13 was a day late due to a typo with "triple".[6]
  • Episode 22 only features PR2 footage due to Memorial Day activities. Jiggmin also revealed that "Yoshi's Island" by Fire Shadow! was highly considered for the Epic campaign.[7]
  • ParticleIllusion was used to create the explosion effect in episode 17, a program used frequently during Neverending Light's development.[8]
  • Episode 13.5 was an update without a video that Jiggmin chose not to count to eliminate possible confusion.[9]
  • Jiggmin based episode 10's update around his constantly full inbox.[10]
  • The Vault of Magics was announced two days before its Motley Monday video.[11]
