This is wonderful! The lyric generation is great fun, and I like the theme interpretation a lot. I've typed words today that I don't think I've ever typed before, so thanks for that!

Also I'm guessing there isn't any audio in your build (either that or it isn't working for me).

It was so difficult to win a single race!
I like this concept, the game jam theme was well clever implemented, it has some funny lyrics and it feels very retro.

Good job!

Thank you! The lyrics are procedurally generated based on lexicons specific to each of the three musical genres in the game, so yeah, they often do end up pretty funny. I know the difficulty is a little high. If I had about one more day, I would have included a difficulty setting, but as it was, I decided that without a difficulty option, then "difficult and hectic" would probably be overall more fun than "easier and calm."

Thanks again for the feedback.
