About This Game


Reach ridiculous top speeds. Drive through winding cyperpunk cities, freezing mountains, and treacherous rings of planets. Crash and Burn, until you Crash and Learn. Become the thrill-seeking speed junkie you've always wanted to be.


Drift, twist, and turn for your life through physics-defying tracks. Corkscrews? Got 'em. Loop-de-loops? Of course. Gravity Switches? Yessir. A time-stopping powerup? Also yes. And plenty more.


Fancy a realtime match? Synthwave Racers has both Race and Battle modes available to play online against both AI bots and other players from around the world. Backed by Unity Multiplay, servers will be spun up as needed to make sure you can race when you want to.

Is realtime not your thing? No problem at all. Race asynchronously against your friends by downloading each other's time trial data. Reach the top of your friends list for the ultimate bragging rights.


Unlock Rider skins, bikes and karts, engines, nitrous particles, and even horns, all through completing challenges and finding hidden unlockables in-game. You can be a chicken, driving a shopping kart, that has electricity coming out of their car, and burps when honking their horn. What else needs to be said?
