How is your game meta (within each relevant category)?
racing games are about complete control as you drive where you want... but this idea is you're NOT in control where the backseat driver frustrates you ... to the point of actually grabbing your steering wheel!!!!!

Obviously (as a demo) it lacks polish and an objective (and the controls are a bit weird), but it's an interesting concept!

thanks

By focusing on the road, you technically don't have to bother with the insults so that doesn't really bother you. Agree that there's a lack of visibility when you're driving downwards. Interesting idea though!

thanks just a demo idea...

Hey man, you did a great job with this.  I agree with the previous comment about the driving down thing.  I think could you give this a little more polish even with the tight timeframe... Good work overall!

thanks

Hah! I think we've all had to deal with a backseat gamer from time to time. The one criticism I have is that the car is a little close to the dashboard, so when you're driving downwards it's pretty much impossible to see where you're going. But other that that, it's a really neat idea and done well.

thank you
