What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It's important to us that we get it out there as soon as we can to gather vital feedback throughout the development process. We have a lot of crazy ideas for this game and would like to go through them with a wide audience so we can filter and refine and produce something that everyone will love.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan on sticking with early access until we're happy this game is polished enough to call a 1.0 although we don't intend on stopping there and do plan to keep the game updated with new content post-release.”

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

“We intend for the game to feel more polished and release worthy.
We do also intend to add more game modes before launch as well as new features such as quests and talent trees.
User feedback during early access will strongly direct our plans going forward.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Spell Karts has many of its intended launch features, with the majority of work left being polishing, bug fixing and responding to user feedback. We believe it to be fun to play in its current state and worth a try!”

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

“We do not plan on changing the pricing post-release.”

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

“We are currently relying on online forms to collate feedback and bug reports (links available in-game).
All feedback is welcome, especially suggestions around balance and gameplay improvements.
In the future we plan on switching to Discord.”

Race around in magic-infused go-karts with friends online (or 4 in local split-screen) to win shiny pebbles. Or try your hand at one of the arena modes where you pit yourself against your friends in close-quarters combat. Win pebbles and trade them for new vehicles and avatars to show off your success.
Each player has a number of spells at their disposal which can be used to inch closer to victory or stop opponents in their tracks.
There is now a map editor included along with Steam Workshop support allowing players to create and share new maps with the community.

The spells


The spell system consists of 4 schools of magic:
  • Arcane - used for slowing opponents
  • Fire - destroy your opponents, forcing them to stop for repairs
  • Nature - used for gripping opponents in place
  • Light - Heal or shield yourself. Also contains the rush spell, giving you a temporary speed boost

The 3 primary schools of Arcane, Fire and Nature come with 3 spells:
  • Arcane/Fire/Nature Ball - sends a ball of energy forward dealing maximum effect to a target (or targets) on hit
  • Arcane/Fire/Nature Blast - an area of effect wave centred on your kart, dealing effects to those near you
  • Arcane/Fire/Nature Storm - leave a storm behind you, stopping those attempting to catch up

Progression

After completing objectives you will be awarded pebbles, these can be traded in-game for new karts, avatars, FX trails and new dynamic menu backgrounds.
