[Sneakpeek] Pod Racing mania!

Hey guys, it's Part Time Monkey man here, developer of Monkeyrama.

I've been developing a pod racer for a while now and would like to show an early video of it to you. I welcome all kinds of feedback and ideas!

Here's the vid: http://parttimemonkey.com/media/PodR...k_10122015.mp4

Currently the idea is to make it a "traditional racing game" where you race against global and your friends' times, which are shown as ghosts on your race. Maybe include some pod upgrading and customizing features.

However I'm thinking about whether or not to change the design rather drastically, and go more towards Hill Climb Racing style, where the ship would be much harder to control and your target would be to get as far as possible while upgrading your vehicle to advance. There would be multiple tracks of course when you advance in the game.

Let me know your thoughts!
