What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make this game the best it can be: that takes time, effort, and collaboration. Karting Superstars currently offers a lot of fun to players through time trial leaderboards, multiplayer Custom Lobbies, and our single-player Kartcade mode with cosmetic rewards. It's already a rich experience ready for players to have fun with, but we yearn to expand it! We plan to deepen and refine the game's existing features, add more tracks for players to enjoy, and pay attention to the way the game is being played to understand how to improve the experience as much as we can.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Ideally 3-6 months.”

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

“The following are features and content we intend to work on throughout Early Access. Worth noting that this is not by any means a limited list, just what we have currently prioritized.
  • Adding collisions to Online multiplayer
  • More tracks
  • Kart body customization options
  • Spectator feature
  • Race strategy mechanics
  • Netcode improvements for online play

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“What Karting Superstars currently offers
  • 1 customizable kart model
  • 6 tracks and 16 different layouts
  • Driver with 2 body types and customization options for suit and helmet
  • Tactile physics model that feels accessible while presenting a high-skill ceiling for you to explore
  • Custom lobbies to play online with friends or in leagues
  • 12 player online multiplayer

  • Time Trials & Leaderboards
  • Dynamic AI difficulty
  • Kartcore mode that allows you to design events to compete vs AI

  • Split screen multiplayer

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

“Yes. We are pricing the game according to the value proposition we're putting forward on Early Access. Once the game reaches a state in which we feel its complete from a features and content perspective, we will raise it's price upon full release.”

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

“A couple of facts are important here:
  • We are a small but very efficient team of 5 people
  • We have a large community on Discord which we've built since our debut title, Circuit Superstars

Karting Superstars is our first self-published title. We are focusing on 1 platform (PC) so that we can be agile and effective at improving the game over time. Our goal throughout Early Access is to hold conversations with our community about ideas and suggestions for Karting Superstars to become the best it can be.”
