A downloadable game for Windows

Introduction

Welcome to the project page for the racing game "race your friends"! This prototype is the result of four weeks of work!

The purpose of the game is to race against your friends in this local multiplayer game! What what if I do not have any friends, you may ask? Well, just play against the AI instead!

The AI is quite dumb, so playing with friends will be the most fun...

Accessibility

Since this project is only a prototype, I did not take accessibility into account. I am sorry. The game supports both keyboard as well as joysticks.

Known issues

  • You can cheat the lap system by cutting corners or by revering right after starting.
  • The missile volley power-up does not work at all, avoid it. Just use the booster instead...
  • When you get stuck and the game does not reset your car, you will have to reboot the game. Sorry.
