Why Early Access?

“Old Skool Racer is designed to be a community-led complete arcade racing game world. This means the features requested by YOU will get incorporated into future versions of the game. We plan to update the game every 15 to 30 days with new features. This would include new vehicles, levels, multiplayer modes, mini games and other game balancing features.

In other words, WE VALUE YOUR FEEDBACK. Contact us with your suggestions or recommendations. We will implement as many as possible in the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Old Skool Racer is designed to be a complete racing game world with cars, speedboats, motorbikes, hover pods and ultimately, chariots. It also includes innovative new features such as Winner's Island which has never before been seen in a racing game. Including all the community requested features, we anticipate all the game features to be completed in 2023.”

d) Over 100 vehicles to choose from including cars, speedboats, motorbikes, hoverpods and chariots
e) Fully customisable Winner's Island including mini games and the ability to change lighting, and visual effects

b) 23 customisable cars
c) Sound effects, music
d) Winner's Island (unlocked after winning TIER 1)”

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

“The Early Access version will remain at the same price for the next few months. It might increase after that. The final version of the game will be of a higher price.”

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

“We plan to involve the community in every stage of the Early Access development process. Based on the Steam community feedback, we plan to add the following.

a) Whole new game levels and tweaks to existing levels
