Endless Drive - now on Test Flight

Hi all !!!
Happy to write that after long delays and tons of problems Endless Drive has finally reached Test Flight for some testing as it is approaching release.
First gameplay preview video
Game has been heavily modified, and unfortunately we had to cut most of the original RPG gameplay we had intended for it, but what we have is a cool (we hope) endless driving game with many cars to choose, what appears to be the best procedural road and scenario generation system available and realistic drive physics.
The premise for the game is very simple, pick a car, and drive it until you crash it, get arrested or finish your fuel. You will start on a freeway, but can turn into various types of secondary roads which will increase your score per KM (but are more difficult). Service stations will allow you to fix and refuel your car. When you close the app, it will store your situation so that travel can be resumed for each car.
Game comes with internet radio streaming built in and various preset radio stations to pick, but also the possibility to add your favourite ones .
Road generation isn't made of pre-made road "segments", with every single meter of road being completely procedural with curves and slopes according to scenario biome and road type.
Each car has it's own scoreboards for KMs travelled and score made, and score is granted according to travel distance, speed, road difficulty and if your driving at night or day.
Game will come with 2 cars free to drive and others which can be "test driven" after a reward video or purchased for eternal unlimited use.

We have just submitted a stable build to test flight, we are still doing some polishing but core of the game is ready to be tested so let us know your device and test flight email account via PM or emailing us at ed@frozenpepper.it and we would be very happy to add you to testers list.

Hope to have piqued your interest and can't wait to see you in the leaderboards.

Great thanks to all who applied for Test Flight beta, we received way more requests than expected and we are very happy about it. Sorry if takes some time to process your application but most should now be ready to test.

We have just released another build which fixes a crash bug occurring at start on many devices, and an even better one should be available tonight or tomorrow.

Happy to announce that (also thanks to great testers feedback from this community) Endless Drive has just been released on the AppStore !!

As a thank you gift to all those who participated in the beta program, (no need to have actually sent back any feedback) PM or email me which car among the in-app ones you would like together with your testflight email and will send you a promo code for it.
