Patch 1.0.1 is live!

What’s new

BAFL has been out for a month now, it’s time to update to version 1.0.1!

We’ve added or changed some features and did some balancing, here’s the full list:

- in Time Attack you can now race against the dev's ghost!
- the quick-turn hint is now shown in the how-to screen
- in quick race mode, in-between rankings now show a general ranking instead of the last race's rankings
- money bonus now appears more often
- Vegas track: short cut through the grass slows you down a little less (it's now worth it in time attack!)

And this update also solves a few bugs! (see patch log at the end).

What’s coming

It’s time to announce some of the next steps to go for BAFL’s development!

For now, the next milestone is to port the game on Mac, we hope to make it available as soon as possible!

We’re also working on porting the game on consoles. The console versions will add new content to the game: extra cars, extra tracks… If you have any wishes or suggestions, now is a good time to speak.

And note that, once ready for consoles, this will come as a free update for PC users too!

Bug Fixes
Thanks to your feedbacks, we’ve identified various bugs that we’ve worked on fixing, here are the main issues that are corrected in this patch:

- bug fix: fixed the bug where a car could remain wrecked if it exploded while being thrown out of the pits
- bug fix: the "win all races" achievements now work properly
- bug fix: night can now happen in quick race mode
- bug fix: pixelization could remain active at the end of the race. It shouldn't any more (hard to reproduce)
- various graphics & interface fixes

About This Game

BAFL - Brakes Are For Losers is a top-down, single-screen racing game created as a tribute to good old games such as Super Sprint, Indy Heat or Super Off Road.


It offers 10 unique tracks inspired by the pop culture of the 80’s and 90’s and full of funny details and surprising events. Each track takes you to a different setting, from peaceful caribbean island to hellish underground, from fabulous Las Vegas all the way to the Moon!

BAFL is all about pure arcade fun. Challenge your friends, pick a funky car and outrun them thanks to your driving skills or dirty tricks. Ram them out of your way or pick up bonuses to wreck them.

Gather up to 8 people on the same screen, compete in championships, upgrade your cars. And break friendships.

BAFL also offers a challenging solo experience with championships against fierce AIs and special modes such as Time Attack or Perfect Race. Train and compete against the best players worldwide thanks to the global ghost system and make your way to the top of the world leaderboards!

BAFL is a simple invitation to dive in a state of the art old-school epic racing game. With no freaking brakes!
