What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As the solo developer behind "Neoathlon," I am fueled by a grand vision for what this game can become. This project, born from passion and ambition, extends far beyond its current scope. While it currently thrives as a highly polished, yet compact game, my aspirations for "Neoathlon" reach much further.

Being a student project, there are inherent time constraints that have influenced the development process. Despite these limitations, I am committed to expanding the game's horizons. There's a wealth of features and ideas waiting to be explored and implemented, each aiming to elevate "Neoathlon" beyond its current form.

My journey with "Neoathlon" is one of continuous growth and evolution. I envision a game that not only resonates with its audience but also stands as a testament to what can be achieved with dedication and creativity. "Neoathlon" is more than just a game to me; it's a canvas for innovation and a platform for endless possibilities.

As we move forward, I invite you to join me in this journey of expansion and exploration. Your support and feedback are invaluable in shaping "Neoathlon" into something bigger, something extraordinary. Together, let's see how far we can take this journey.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As I navigate the exciting development phase of "Neoathlon," I want to share my vision for the game's progression and release strategy. My current roadmap includes a few more modes and features that I am eager to introduce, aiming to enrich your racing experience. I estimate that this development phase will take approximately 6 months to a year at most.

I believe in transparency and precision, so I plan to set a hard release date once my list of upcoming features is finalized. However, I also value flexibility and quality; therefore, this date may be adjusted as development progresses. This approach ensures that I can adapt to new ideas and feedback without compromising the game's quality.

My commitment to the player is unwavering: "Neoathlon" will not exit Early Access in a buggy or incomplete state. I am dedicated to delivering a polished, fully-realized racing experience that meets your expectations and my high standards. Your patience and support during this phase are greatly appreciated, as they are instrumental in helping me create the best possible version of "Neoathlon."”

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

“My vision for "Neoathlon" extends beyond its current state. I'm excited to announce several upcoming features that will elevate your single-player experience, making it even more engaging and immersive. Here's a sneak peek at what's in store:

Vehicle Upgrades: Enhance your racing experience with a variety of upgrades in single-player modes. These enhancements will allow for deeper customization and strategic gameplay, offering a more personalized racing experience.

Customizable Vehicle Cosmetics: Express your style on the track with an expanded range of customizable vehicle cosmetics. This feature will give you the freedom to create a racer that truly represents your unique taste and flair.

Racing Team Simulation Mode: Dive into the strategic aspects of racing with our new 'Racing Team' simulation mode. Manage your team, make critical decisions, and lead your crew to victory in this immersive and dynamic new addition to the game.

I'm committed to regularly updating "Neoathlon" and ensuring each addition enriches your gaming experience. These features are just a glimpse of what I have planned, and I can't wait for you to see what else is in store. Stay tuned for more updates and thank you for being a part of Neoathlon's journey!

As for Multiplayer:
  • A Battle Mode, which will add a toggle-able weapons system for races
  • A Track Builder
  • More tracks, more vehicles

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A zero-gravity racing experience that blends the nostalgia of early 2000s racing games with modern enhancements. Here's what you can currently enjoy in my feature-complete, yet straightforward, racing game:

AI Competitors: Challenge yourself against sophisticated AI racers.
Challenge Mode: Test your skills and refine your racing techniques.
Multiplayer Options: Engage in exhilarating Local Multiplayer Races.
Two Unique Tracks: Race on 'Bonneville Shores' and 'Metropolitan Skies', each offering a distinct racing atmosphere.
Vehicle Customization: Personalize your race vehicle with various cosmetic options.

I am dedicated to expanding and enhancing "Neoathlon," and the current version is just the beginning. As I introduce new features, my goal is to retain all existing content, ensuring that no in-game content is ever lost. This approach allows early adopters to enjoy the game's evolution without sacrificing the modes and features they love.”

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

“As I continue to develop and enhance "Neoathlon," I want to assure my community about the game's pricing. I am committed to maintaining the current price even as I transition out of Early Access. This decision reflects my appreciation for the early supporters who have joined me on this exciting journey. I believe in offering a fair and accessible gaming experience, and keeping the price unchanged is a testament to that commitment. Enjoy the evolving world of "Neoathlon" with the assurance that the value you see today will remain consistent in the future.”

About This Game

The year is 3029...

...you find yourself in a grand stadium crowded with spectators. The air is thick with anticipation as a cavalcade of lights dance across the colossal brass structures that encircle the arena. The engines roar to life, in union with the collective heartbeat of the crowd. The vehicles with a light hum pop up off the metallic floor, defying gravity. Welcome to The Neoathlon, where the legacy of human ingenuity becomes a galactic sport. Prepare to race through time, challenge the cosmos, and etch your name in the annals of racing history. Gear up, pilots, for the ride of a lifetime awaits!


Neoathlon is a solo developed racing video game currently available for the PC as an early access title. Originally a student project I hope to make this project so much bigger than it could've been in just 10 weeks of work. Join me on the journey to produce a racing experience that is just as compelling to play as it is to spectate.
