What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Super Indie Karts has been in development for several years and was fully funded on Kickstarter late in 2014. Early Access, provides an opportunity to hear honest feedback about the game as it is refined, and give a chance to improve the game before the full release in 2020”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Super Indie Karts is planned to leave Early Access in 2020”

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

“The final game will have more Indie Game crossovers, more karts, more tracks, more play modes, more weapons, and more refinement.

There'll be 64 tracks, over 30 karts, SplitscreenGP, Battle Mode, Time Trials, and Mirror Mode, in both flat SNES and 3D N64 styles.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The currently uploaded build has the Grand Prix, SplitscreenGP, Time Trials modes active with 40 tracks to race in 4 speed classes and in Mirror Mode, with over 30 karts, and a sackful of fruity weapons.”

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

“The game will have its price increased gradually as more sweet content is added and after leaving early access the game will be priced at 33% more than its current Early Access price.”

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

About This Game

Super Indie Karts is a classic retro '90s style karting game featuring a large curation of Indiegame karts and Indiegame themed race tracks, in both the 16-bit flat Super style and the 64-bit low poly Ultra style. With Time Trials, Grand Prix, Splitscreen GP, Quick Race, and Battle Modes there's plenty of ways to tackle the tracks!



Indie Crossovers so far include: - ToeJam & Earl: Back In The Groove - Burrito Bison - Mutant Mudds - Runbow - Freedom Planet - Teslagrad - Fist Of Awesome - Read Only Memories 2064 - Canabalt - Duck Game - Toto Temple Deluxe - Knightmare Tower - Aegis Defenders - Shutshimi - Cross Code - Guacamelee! - and many more to come! With over 40 tracks currently ready to race on, in 4 speed classes, plus mirror mode, there'll also be plenty of achievements and unlocks to keep you drifting and burning pixel rubber 'till the pixelated billboard sun goes down!

With one foot firmly in the past, witness authentic '90s hardware limitations such as:

Super Style
  • shockingly bad draw distance!
  • fast, incredibly small, almost claustrophobic, tracks!
  • trees and obstacles that pop up 5 yards in front of you!
Ultra Update
  • increased draw distance and track area size!
  • large open antigrav racetracks that corkscrew and loop-de-loop into the skies!
  • more cranked up than a joypad with a double wedgie!
Retro Sensibilities
  • World leading watermelon physics engine! (featuring Blast Processing!)
  • 1992 style screen curvature and motion blur! (optional)
  • Indie Game crossovers you know and love, and some you don't yet know you love!

More info on the final game:
Play as some super Indie Game characters, coming to battle it out in some super Indie Game themed tracks! It might get a little bumpy out there as there are plenty of weapons on the track to spin you out: Meloons, Exploding Pangapples, Slippy Gelatos, Heat Seeking Loconuts, Giant Halloween Pumpkings, Mutant Tomms, and 3 different strength Chilli Boosts!

The game was KickStarted late in 2014 and is aimed for completion in 2020. You don't have to wait until completion though as you can join in now with Early Access! The EA game currently boasts over 30 characters, with 32 Super tracks, and 8 recently added Ultra (64) tracks, with 24 more tracks to come, to play Single Player or 2/3/4 Player Splitscreen in Grand Prix mode (and in Mirror Mode) and in Time Trials. Battle Mode is currently locked out of the game as it's undergoing a serious overhaul. More play modes, characters, and features will be added each month as the Early Access weeks drift on by.
