What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“R42 is developed by a small team. We do have a vision of how we want the game to turn out but on the other hand we value the feedback of our players highly. Early Access is a good opportunity to improve the game and our plans for release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently R42 is scheduled to release in spring 2020. This may change depending on adjustments made in Early Access.”

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

“Current plans are to
  • increase the number of stages to 24
  • add Steam Leaderboards
  • add multiplayer and customization of player avatars
  • improve player onboarding and tutorials
  • add Steam Achievements
  • add Steam Workshop support (maps, skins)
  • add ghosts to singleplayer and the ability to share them on the workshop
  • continually improve graphics and UI
  • improve and expand ingame music

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All core features are fully implemented. The options menu is fully functional and all control schemes are working. Currently you can play 9 stages in single player against AI.”

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

“The pricing will be reevaluated as the game moves toward full release. As such the price may increase moderately when we release.”

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

“We are always open to community suggestions for changes, new ideas and requests either via Steam community features or our Discord server. Early Access players can report issues, submit ideas for new stages, mechanics and skins and make feature requests.”

About This Game

R42 is a fast-paced non-linear VR racing game set on the highways of the digital world. Meet other players or the digital natives while racing for the best time on each track.

Defy the laws of reality. Make the ceiling your floor, pass through your obstacles and find crazy shortcuts. Make use of the unique properties of data space, where falling down is the same as falling back in from above. Be the fastest racer data space has ever seen!

What do you mean "non-linear racing"? How does that work?

In R42 you do not race along a given track to reach certain checkpoints and your placement is not determined by your position relative to other racers. Instead you need to traverse a big enough part of each track and make it back to the finish line. The winner is decided by the fastest route. You will not only need enough skill to execute a given route, but also enough creativity to find the fastest one.

Key Features:

  • You can travel along any highway surface you can reach. Be creative in deciding your route!
  • Dataspace repeats itself infinitely. You will always be able to return to where you started.
  • 42 simultaneous Racers on every stage.
  • Play at your own pace. Start and stop your participation in a race whenever you want. The winner is decided by the fastest lap. Game Length adjustable!
  • Several control schemes. Play with a Gamepad or fully immersed with VR Controllers while sitting or standing.
