Default New 2.5D "Out Run" style racer from POLYGAMe - gauging interest!

So I've spent the last ten months working on The Drive and for my next game, I want to do another, simpler, retro-inspired project.

This is a demo I built a year and a half ago and I'm wondering if anyone thinks it's a good idea to turn it into a real game?

The graphics and sound will change but you get the idea.

What do you guys think? Is this sort of thing something you'd be interested in?Good to gauge interest before I go ahead.

Looks nice, reminds of F-Zero. With some more gameplay elements it would be fun to play.

I'm thinking something along the lines of Final Freeway 2R but much more retro looking, like an NES game. I could add baddies and guns/ramming like Chase HQ/Battle Out Run

Kudos to the idea! I find it very interesting.

We were actually working on something very similar (TA Thread: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=217040)

But, we ran into art issues and never could finish the game.

Awesome

I hit issues doing hills the way I've built my engine. I'm actually doing it the way the old consoles did. The road is manipulated line by line, rather than using a plane and manipulating the vertices, as seems to be the way these days.

I decided to do it that way as it gives the road that jagged, 8-bit effect. I think I've worked out the hills now, too.

You are doing it with Unity?

Yup. Started out with GameSalad, then learnt to build 3D engines in C++ with DirectX then split the difference and stuck with Unity. I love it No worrying about complex matrix algorithms! Haha.

This is what 'The Longest Drive' looked like, when we stopped working on it.



Pls note: all art here is from the internet, mostly from outrun itself. We did not have any art of our own. All of this was used as placeholder, unless we got an artist on board.
