Intergalactic Road Warriors

So after another month of development we decided to release onto early access. Bottom line is, if we don't see any money coming in soon we'd have to call it quits for now. The game is currently in alpha, and lot's of stuff is still to change. Our goal is to get a small community going on the steam discussion forums. Wish us luck!

early access:

Summary:


IRW is a side scrolling racing game set in outer space. This violent grand prix takes place on a wide range of planets. You'll be racing in all corners of the known universe.

You have been invited to join this intergalactic racing tournament. The whole thing is basically a battle royale with a finish line. There are no rules at all, except for one: reaching the finish line.

I'm developing this game together with @m0rph3v5 under Turtleblaze. http://turtleblaze.com/


Team:

  • Richard Lems (Rilem) - technical artist.
  • Benjamin de Jager (M0rph3v5) - programmer
  • Shannon Mason (Pongball) - composer

Contact:

twitter: @turtleblaze


Planned features:

  • big singleplayer story mode
  • advanced car customisation
  • online multiplayer
  • intense side scrolling racing
  • firearm battles while driving
  • branching path level design like the old sonic games
  • loads of characters & cars
  • lots of different planets to race on


Status:

Currently we're working hard on a early access/beta version of the game. At the moment of writing this we're only 3 weeks into development since our initial 3 day prototype. We'll be launching a Steam Greenlight soon and we could really use your help to get the game greenlit. :)

We've got a Youtube channel with a weekly video log if you'd like to know more about the development of IRW.


Gifs:

To give you a taste of what the game is going to feel like. :)

Looking massively sexy! <'3

Love the sense of speed -- looks really good in motion :)

(+2)

Awesome look and feel. Will keep an eye on this. Good luck!

(+1)

Just recently put the car customisation in + colouring :), gun and decoration placement is coming as well (hence the empty 'holes' on some parts').

(+2)

Those colour variants remind me of Street Rod in a really, really good way

(+1)

Looking rad AF! Nice work

Looks amazing ! The motion blur is very well done. Are the gifs real gameplay or concept art ?

Some questions:

  • How much will it cost ?
  • What are the target platforms ?
(Edited 1 time) (+2)

All gifs are recorded ingame :)

We will probably end up between the $10-20 range depending on early access and our overal feel about what we deliver eventually content wise.

As for platforms we will be going for pc, mac and linux first with consoles (ps4, xbox one) soon after (if and when we get access).

In only 3 weeks, this already looks completely fun and playable :D

Can't wait to play the first build :) Keep in mind we have experimental stuff going on at itch.io, would love for you to be a part of it! Ping me whenever you have a version ready, if you want!

Awesome, I've seen this one turn up on twitter and it's always grabbed my attention.

(+1)

Wow, love how it looks! Will keep an eye on it!

(+1)

Loving the art!

Some flashin' feedback when hitting other cars

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

This so intense, I really want to play this game :D

This is awesome! Can't wait to play : D

Did some work on the character select screen, now it's time to draw a lot of big portraits :P

Crazy busy wanting to launch a greenlight coming tuesday.

I added Goop to the character select. His home planet should be a very interesting track. :p

(+2)

Did you ever play Rock n Roll racing on the SNES? I'm getting hints of it from your game, loved that game. Would love to see it brought back to life :D

That old Blizzard game from before they became Blizzard. :p Yeah I remember that, it totally hits the vibe we're trying to reach with IRW. Actually Pongball is working on an amazing guitar shredding music theme for the game. :D

(+1)

That's what immediately came to mind when I saw this! I am definitely getting a bit of Rock 'n Roll racing vibes from this.

(Edited 1 time) (+3)

So I gave the CPU some love (meaning they use boost, jump and guns now and then),

I did not get love in return, just pure chaos. How lovely :D

(Edited 1 time)

It looks like they are having a lot of fun :D

(+1)

I am totally fall in love with your game!

It seems to be a mix of my childhood games: Jazz Jackrabbit and Battletoads but on wheels.

Good luck and waiting for the next updates :)

(+2)

Game needs animated intro. ;D

(Edited 1 time) (+2)

Mmm, this game looks delicious. Excellent pixel art and animations. Love that animation and style on the character select screen, too.

(+2)

i want/need this. so i can finally live out all my speed racer fantasies.

(+1)

Thanks ^_^, still need to watch speed racer but from what I saw it's pretty rad.

Worked on decorations today, most parts have spots for decoration. Stuff like exhaust pipes will be able to mount to these spots.

Added some new parts as well arted by richard, the big new monster wheels and some exhaust / pipes etc.

We are now LIVE on Steam Greenlight! Please help us get greenlit so we can bring IRW into early acces!

Awesome trailer guys. Voted. Goodluck!

WOO do the Greenlight! Voting now!

A great looking game here Rilem. The pace looks fantastic and your animation work is brilliant. Just voted on greenlight, look forward to giving it a play!

Probably the coolest indie game I've ever seen. Voting yes, waiting for release HURRY!

Congratulations :D

Can't wait to test it !

Congrats on that greenlight! I'm really looking forward to this one

After being greenlit last year (thanks for your help! \m/), we had a small break but are now back full on development!

Working on optimising car feels and moar: https://twitter.com/turtleblaze

Below is the start of split paths based on a shootable railroad switch (which will be the next thing we build)

We just finished a new video log, it sums up some of our recent work quite nicely. Smiley
