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!”

Stability update & new european server location

We released an update that improves server stability and adds an european server. We also improved our build process to make future updates easier to publish.

Changes:
- Added european server - lower latencies for all european players. The game prefers server with lower latencies (e.g. when starting new games) but still joins other games if there are no players from the same area are available
- Version checks for the game & master server, so you can't accidentally connect to a server with the wrong version
- The vehicle is now a bit more responsive, so less braking is needed to start drifting

Bugfixes:
- Scoring/track building should now always work from both sides.
- Updated to Unity 4.5 which solves some problems with the servers
- Linux server pinging is now more reliable

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

I can't believe this game has so little publicity. It is truly amazing, with great graphics and wonderful, unique gameplay. I would recommend this to anyone who loves racing games, and wants something a bit unorthadox!

Not really sure what I was expecting from this... the trailer looked interesting so I gave it a go.

The driving-handling is super-arcadey, not surprising, but not much fun. The flying is awful, you basically turn into a brick with minimal gliding functionality.

Not really any way I'm aware of to connect to specific people i.e. friends, just queue up for game types, and often enough nobody else queueing up anyway. Safe to give this one a miss.

I'm in love. The art, the music, the gameplay. Even though it is still in early access, it's still one heck of a game.

Early Access Review
You could say that Krautscape is almost a finished product with how polished everything is, but i hope not, the game will come out of Steam Early Access and launch after a few months of developing, i love the art style/graphics of the game, and the gameplay and it's unique ideas like the track building while you race, this is a great game for the asking pricing, it has local and online support, and a split-screen too, one thing is missing though that i find would make make recommend this game without question, there is no AI/Bots, you could say "well it doesn't need it, just play with your friends or online in a match", i could do that but what if i couldn't? i can't have my friends come play with me whenever i please, the online component of the game can be is another solution but it may die off in time, that's why bots are needed in the game and i hope they do add it when the game releases.
