About This Game



DESCEND INTO THE UNDERWORLD OF JAPANESE STREET RACING

Set in an unknown time between 1990-2009, you will navigate through the corrupt and shady power struggles of local street racing crews, all competing for control of their regions and to top the crew rankings.

  • Extremely detailed customization, including Exterior, Interior, Wheels, Engine, and Handling
  • Dynamic character dialogue; other racers will comment on your car, your recent races, new local records and your progression
  • Full Photomode with VHS, old camera effects and motion blur
  • Freely walk around your garage and the car meet (Parking Area) between races
  • Adjustable screenshake and camera FOV
  • Procedural game event scripting, high replay value


Inspired by the real life Japanese used car auctions, you will purchase your first vehicle by visiting the used car auctions and leaving with any decrepit car you can afford.


Walk around your safehouse and view all your hard-earned cars; change their oil, repair their engines and view their stats. Good maintenance will help your engine last longer after a long night of abuse and overheating.


Take parts off your cars, place them into storage and sell them for some extra cash or transfer them onto another vehicle you own. When you have some spare cash, take a trip to "Top Garage" to buy some new parts for your exterior, interior, wheels, engine and/or handling.


Progress through the underworld by entering a "PA"(Parking Area) and start negotiating wagers with any local crew members who care to race you. You are free to walk around any "PA" and bask in the thick atmosphere of smog and secondhand cigarette smoke.


The local racers are not impressed with newcomers and will make their disdain known. Impress them by winning and they will change their tone.


Earn cash by beating racers in 1vs1 wagers but be warned; these are real wagers and you will lose the money you bet if you lose the race! Some racers will take pity on you and give you a chance to win your money back by suggesting a 'double or nothing' race. It's your choice if you want to take that risk.
