What the developers have to say:

“Krautscape is an awesome new experience in racing games and to maximize that experience we felt Early Access would give us the flexibility in being able to get the game out and show it to players while we finalize our content and iron-out any problems in the process.

The core mechanics behind Krautscape are complete. You'll be able to race against your friends online, creating awesome new tracks every time you race with three modes for you to play. With Early Access we would like to expand on our multiplayer offerings by adding more players, but to do so we want to make sure online matches are 100% stable. Obviously adding more players creates more chances for hiccups, so we'll be rolling out updates to add more players to races in time. We'll also have some exciting new content for you to play by yourself and we'll have a big update that adds more variation to tracks and cars so you can win in style!

We hope to be in Early Access for a short period of time, 3-5 months at most. During that time you'll be able to purchase the game at a special Early Access discount priced at $7.99! This of course will include all future updates. After the game is complete and taken off Early Access it will be sold for its normal price of $9.99.

We would love the Steam Community to be involved in bringing out the full potential of Krautscape. To do so we want players to be active on the game forum pages so we can take all feedback and reported issues and put them into fixing the game and making it as much fun as possible. We're a small team but we will be absorbing everything the community has to say and we hope that you and your friends will enjoy Krautscape while we bring this exciting new racing experience to the world!”

We're back!

Development state

Many of you asked what will happen to Krautscape, if it's still in development and so on. Some of you are worried that it is abandoned, and I can completely understand this feeling, as there wasn't any update for a long time and not much communication from our side.

Krautscape is a project mainly worked on by one person (me), which means if I don't work on it, nobody will. And for different reasons, during the last year I couldn't find the time to work on Krautscape, mainly because of other projects that had deadlines with people relying on me. Some of the delay I was expecting, other parts were not expected. It just added up and now we're here without a Krautscape update, more than one year later.

We're back? We're back!

I wasn't confident enough earlier to announce anything, before I knew for sure when I could work on the game, and I didn't want to promise too much without being 100% sure what I can deliver.

Now the time finally came when I can confidently say "we're back!". Last week I started to work on the game, together with Flurin Jenal, who already worked a bit on Krautscape some time ago. We're currently working on the much needed single player mode and we're quite happy with what we have so far.

3 Singleplayer game modes

Without giving away too many details, what we can already say is that we expect to have 3 single player game modes. Each one has a different focus:

  • driving – for beginners
  • flying – for players who proved that they can drive
  • track building – for players who proved that the can drive and fly

The new game modes are still in the state of (working) prototypes still need a lot of polishing. This means it will take some time until we can release them, but they will come.

I hope this announcement gives you some more confidence about the future of Krautscape.

– Mario

About This Game

Krautscape is an action-packed racing game with bird-like flying cars, focused on competitive multiplayer gameplay. The leading player actively builds the racetrack while the chasing players can take shortcuts by flying off the track to overcome obstacles. But the track is needed to score and to get speed – the vehicles don't have any thrusters to accelerate while flying. The three multiplayer game modes are designed to support nonlinear gameplay and intelligent movement instead of forcing you to drive perfectly.

Key Features

  • Short and action packed multiplayer racing sessions
  • Build a racing track while racing – every race creates a new track
  • Flying cars!
  • Three multiplayer game modes with completely different goals & gameplay
  • Multiplayer game modes are playable online, on LAN or in splitscreen mode (up to 4 players)
  • Single player practice mode
  • Original adaptive soundtrack
  • Keyboard and gamepad

Even though there aren't many people who play it, if you get your friends to buy it and play with you, then it can be a very fun game.
