Race Control Director - Text based race control
Release: 6 April 2017
Hi Touch Arcade people!
I'm announcing my first ever mobile game: Race Control Director. You guys are the first ones to know about this game. Touch Arcade is just as much my home as a gamer as you guys. The funny thing is, when I joined Touch Arcade, I didn't even know how to code yet! I joined Touch Arcade two years ago when I bought my first iPhone (I know.. so late..). Maby some of you know me as a member who posts something now and then. April this year I quit my university education and started to learn how to code iOS apps all by myself, with the help of some internet courses. I then coded a few apps for some festivals and eventually started with this project in September. So that's the story behind this game.
Some explanation about the game:
Race Control Director is a text based game where you act as a racing director. You make decisions based on events which are happening on the race track. You can deploy yellow flags, send out the safety car and if a driver is overtaking while yellow flags are being waved, you penalize them. The game is currently in the works and being developed by Fabian Bouwmeester.
Why arcade/simulation? The game is short session based and playable with one hand, although you have to know the rules of track racing. Such as when to deploy yellow flags or when someone needs to receive a penalty for inappropriate racing behaviour.
I'm planning to make the app paid without IAP. Also there is an option to edit all driver names, so seeing "Donkey Kong just did an incredible overtake! Insane!" is totally possible.
