What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The technical part of the game is complete and it’s ready to play now, however, we plan to add a lot of additional racing tracks and features. Interaction with the community continuously helps us to improve the gameplay.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As long as it takes us to complete all planned features.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • 16 racing tracks on four different locations. Ideally our goal is 32 tracks on eight locations (mountains, forest, desert, volcanic island, dry sea, canyon, sky, ...)
  • Achievements and badges - full support of the Steamworks SDK features.
  • Unique upgrades (Ejection seat and brake chute along with others) - these items will be available as power-ups laid out on the course.
  • Inertial controller based on your smartphone. Really cool stuff! This will be available very soon!
  • A very exciting surprise! - Don’t ask, remember, it’s a surprise!...

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game engine is basically complete, but we still have some work to do regarding the content. These features are already included:
  • Worldwide multiplayer
  • Vehicle fine-tuning
  • Vehicle upgrades
  • Seven racing tracks
  • Steam leaderboards (in addition to the built-in leaderboards).
  • Steam achievements.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as new content and features becomes available.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will ask the community about what the tracks they want. We would also want feedback about desired features and gameplay improvement.”

The long-awaited update

Hi guys!

Sorry to have kept you waiting a new build so long. Work did not stop even for a minute.
After we did the buggy bots, we noticed the fundamental problems of physics that we would fix quickly. But the quick fix was failed, as you can see.

The details of what we had to face is here: https://youtu.be/0g-3VoioQBM
https://youtu.be/EJjuTm7bzTw

Also we tried to port the game to Unreal Engine, but still no success. It has the same physics problems as Unity 5. So, now we left on Unity4 with it's stable and most realistic wheel physics ( but quite buggy ).

So, what was done.

  • Physics of fracture rewritten. Now the car became more stable, oscillations of the separate parts become much less noticeable. It affected the dynamics and management, hence the next paragraph:
  • Vehicle dynamics rewritten, the weight distribution of the vehicle changed. Now it is more natural. In the previous version we had to use unrealistic tricks to hide the peculiarities of the physics engine.
  • Completely redesigned autopilot and all control systems.
  • Reworked textures, now the standard texture resolution is 4096. We also added more fine details.
  • Pilot ragdoll redesigned for a more realistic behavior.
  • Drag chute added. You can buy it in parts shop.
  • Eject seat added. Save your ass in serious disasters.
  • Inertial controller. (based on smartphone) We had to tinker with this thing since involved a lot of buttons and knobs in the machine control. We wanted to make the most convenient inertial controller.
  • Small changes in the gameplay. The fun becomes greater if you have a gun.
  • Bot's AI modified. Now they know how to go around tricky obstacles, so be careful.
  • Realistic physics of explosions (on the basis of practical formulas for TNT).
  • Optimization of the world props textures for best performance.

Non-significant changes:
  • Sounds redesigned;
  • Differential sound effect (different engine sound from front point and back point of view);
  • some fonts improved;
  • Sound settings;
  • Exclusive metal-style tracks;
  • Main menu camera improvements;

Please be patient, do not write that we abandoned the development. Only two people working on this project, one of which is the artist. We're not Electronic Arts and can't release a game every season.
The update will be released this month. Thank you for staying with us!

P.S. Some of trading cards preview:

There are 10 trading cards already done.

First and foremost this has not been abandoned, this guy has a job and has a life and has ♥♥♥♥ he needs to do, thats why it may seem like it is abandoned at times, im sorry community but not everyone can be a full time game developer and feed everything to you the second you want it.

That aside i find this game amazing, mostly because of the physics and crashing. true the car is difficult but like every game that has driving it is much much easier with a controller. there is a small ammount of content currently but it has been making progress since i first got the game.

overall this game has amazing potential and in its current state it is still a good 30 minutes of laughter if you ever get bored. i come back every now and again to giggle at the flying debris and its great. if you love physics simulations then i recommend getting this game, if you are a die hard racing guy then go somewhere else this game's community doesnt want you.

All you need to do is know how to set the computer. I'm a commercial pilot and could see the computer assist at speeds like this on land. It still would make for an amazing experience and race! People will surely die!

Product received for free
The concept is good, but the game is very very poorly made. The idea of driving a jet-powered car at 700km/h while using stuff like turbo jets for extra speed is cool. The HUD is also kinda cool, but the actual gameplay is honestly terrible. I'm not bad at racing games at all, but it took me about 15 minutes to get to the first checkpoint on a random track I picked. The controls are absolutely terrible and when going over 200 km/h (which feels like 50cc mariokart speed) the car won't turn properly anymore.

Overall this game plays terribly and I will not recommend it at all. The concept is fun, execution is poor.

Idea 9/10
Graphics 6.5/10
Controls 0/10
Gameplay 0/10

This game has potential. I still remember the predecessor called P.O.D. many years ago but here there is just a few things about.

First of all the car is impossible to command (at least via keyboard). You press left or right and it turns like there was a corner. In any case there is no way to properly command the car. The turbo boost make you just fall from every road. Physic is a problem here because there is no collant between the car and the road.

The play will be like this: start -- fall out. restart -- fall out. restart -- fall out. restart -- fall out. restart -- go around like a mini scooter speed vehicle... reach a checkpoint, start to push engine and .. fall out.

Let's take a definitive decision: UNPLAYABLE.

Lord's Hol Napult experience: 3/10
