Oversteer - Toon Shaded "Test Drive" Style Racer from POLYGAMe

Okay,

I figured that this game was worthy of a new "upocoming" thread, as, true to style, the game has changed SOOOO much since the original plan.

Oversteer - Devil's Pass (working title) is the first in (hopefully) a series of Point to Point racers, inspired by the likes of Test Drive and the original Need For Speed.

The track is split over several legs and there are several cars to choose from (fantasy models), from hot hatch to supercar.

I'm hoping to have the game finished within the next couple of weeks!

Here's a WIP shot from the current build to whet the appetite:



Cheers!

Karly Warly.

It's designed with accelerometer steering in mind but maaaaybe... will look into it and see if Unity supports it yet.

Please say you'll have an alternate option to accelerometer.
I've enjoyed your previous releases. Test Drive is awesome.
Accelerometer I'm not such a big fan of.

Yeah there's on screen controls too but the accelerometer works really well in this

Oh my Goood!!! Great idea man!!! Can't wait to play it, and hope to have manual accel and brakes and a good choice of coupes like the new Mercedes class S coupe or the hiundai elantra coupe, or also an old truck like the 64 El camino...

Yup, manual gas and brakes (possibly gears, too - haven't quite decided, as it is kind of arcadey).

Unfortunately, there are no "real" cars. I can't afford to license them, though they are loosely based on real world cars, a bit like the cars in the GTA games

Yes, I know that there will be no licensed cars, but I mean cars like those I wrote about... Especially a truck and a three boxes coupe... I vote for the option for manual gear... Steering wheel is only on the right or you plan to add left sided?

There's no truck in this version but maybe in an update Final controls haven't been set yet, but there'll more than likely be a lefty version too
