What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The primary motivation for us to be part of the Early Access program is to work with our player community to seek input on balancing. Given the asymmetric nature of our game, it is important that players in both of the different roles enjoy the experience.

We feel that we are at a point in development where we are ready to present to the world. We are still ironing out some kinks, but hope to start cultivating engagement and feedback as soon as possible!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're expecting to be in Early Access until the end of 2024. We'll do our best to provide updates to define a more specific timeline as development progresses.”

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

“We currently plan for the full version of the game to include at least the following features:
  • 4 balanced tribes, each with unique cars, tracks, cards, and characters
  • Game modes supporting multiple driver players
  • Game modes supporting multiple god players
  • Ranked Matchmaking
  • Quickplay Matchmaking
  • Dedicated Servers
(Along with any other changes we find appropriate through feedback given during this early access phase.)

Note: The state of the Early Access version may begin to include these features as they become available, we will keep you updated!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Over the past year we have developed core mechanics and features for players to compete in a 1v1 game mode pitting a driver against a track designing god. Player's can play local splitscreen, or through peer-to-peer connection online. We feature lobby hosting and joining through Steam.

The game currently features 2 well defined tribes: Gnomes and Lizards. Two additional tribes, Plants and Insects, are in various stages of development.

Players are able to play with a range of cars, each with unique stats; and are able to construct their decks from dozens of cards belonging to the various factions. Features are in place for players to unlock items and cosmetics.”

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

“We plan to continue with the free-to-play model through release! We want people to be able to play for free, and will offer in-game purchases for cosmetics, card packs and future tribes offered as DLC.”

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

“Developing directly with the community’s input is important to us, and we plan to do so primarily by directly engaging with players through our Discord. We also encourage players to provide feedback in-game by including the ability to reach us directly through the main menu. We actively collect analytics from our player base to monitor player behaviour and preferences so that we can tune the game to make it more fun. Finally, we will provide frequent updates through Steam and Discord, to invite further feedback.”

About This Game

Welcome to The World of Boosthaven

Experience an entire world devoted to the brutal art of racing! For aeons, the diverse tribes of Boosthaven have been practicing the oldest ritual: racing. Countless drivers devote their lives to complete the ultimate challenge of winning a race for the entertainment of the gods.

Complete 3 laps on the ceremonial track with your life intact to prove your devotion and please the gods testing you from above!

Show no Mercy as you Destroy the Cars Below!


The gnome tribe is one of the most zealous tribes in the world. Gnome gods build shrines and cast prayers to maximize the devotion they can spend on their particular flavour of chaos.


The lizards are a tricky bunch... Drivers racing for these gods need to be on their toes to anticipate surprise traps and wily tricks. An industrious tribe, lizard gods place pressure plates and scouts to automate the activation of their traps. They also have an affinity for generally messing with the drivers, taking away agency through smokescreens and tricks like reversing the cars controls.


This tribe of sentient plants comprised primarily of mushroom men is terribly misunderstood. One of the most benevolent pantheons in RaceTrap, they devote their energy into cultivation. Gods of this tribe tend to cultivate a fruitful harvest of cards from their deck. Unfortunately, despite their best intentions of beautifying the track, the items they grow tend to harm the drivers more than help.


The insect tribe is one of the most sinister tribes in the land. Drivers unfortunate enough to race against the insect gods should prepare for a harrowing experience. The gods of this tribe like to play with their food. They tend to pin the cars in place with webs, honey or worst of all, giant overwhelming swarms.
