Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“SUPER IMPOSSIBLE ROAD is primarily a multiplayer racing game with local (split screen) and online play (coming soon). Early Access is especially important for games with a strong multiplayer component, to ensure a robust online experience, but also to balance and tweak gameplay. The only way to achieve this is by getting feedback from lots of players.

Single player aspects will also be tweaked and developed with feedback from the community. In particular, the career mode, which takes the player from beginner through to complete mastery will benefit hugely from player feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming for a 2016 release for SUPER IMPOSSIBLE ROAD, but it won't be released until we're completely happy with it. The release date will be locked down as we go through Early Access and start to learn more about what needs to be done to complete the game.”

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

  • Online multiplayer racing
  • Complete single player career mode
  • Full variety of track designs
  • Full variety of vehicle designs, each with different handling attributes
  • Tweaks and polish across the scope of the game
  • More music tracks

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Local multiplayer (split screen) races with AI opponents
  • Single player races against AI opponents
  • Survival mode (single player endless mode) with leaderboards
  • Time gate mode (single player endless mode) with leaderboards
  • Partially complete single player career mode
  • Near-complete graphical effects - physical based rendering, HDR, bloom, motion blur
  • Sound design and implementation 50% complete including voice actor for race announcements

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

“Those who buy the game during Early Access will be buying at a lower discounted price point than the full release, to give our thanks to those who support the game early on and help us with their feedback and with spreading the word.”

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

“The backbone of community involvement will be the game's forum. Every post will be read by the developer and some, where appropriate, commented upon by the developer. Whilst this will be a good way to gauge community response to aspects of the game, we will also run polls whenever that makes sense to get consensus on specific features.

For the multiplayer, we will organise weekly coordinated play sessions, to make sure there are enough people online at the same time to properly test the multiplayer systems. The community will be free to play online whenever they want, but these coordinated sessions will hopefully be useful to make sure there are enough players online at the same time whilst the user base is still growing.

There will be a bi-weekly cycle for version releases. As much as possible, these releases will be done on the same day so that players know when to expect new features. The release will be accompanied by a project update showing what's new in this version, as well as what is coming soon.”

The Boosted Update is live! (v0.24.0)


Mind the gap. Reset the leaderboards. Changes ahoy!

Three big gameplay changes in this update!

Firstly, the boost system has been rewritten. As well as a higher top speed and faster acceleration, boost now happens in two stages. Stage 1 hits as soon as you boost, signified by a blue flame. Stage 2 kicks in after 1.5 seconds of boost, signified by a hotter orange flame. This stage really blows you back in your seat! If you’re good enough, you can even trigger Stage 2 straight away, by triggering your boost at the EXACT MOMENT you go through a gate, propelling you at top speed from the start.

The second big change is the addition of gaps in the track. You’ll see these at the later sections of Survival and Time Gate mode, occasionally in Daily Track mode and in the new “Ultra” track complexity setting for Race mode. Track generation in general has also been improved to create a greater variety of track.

The final changes are to Time Gate mode. The frames of the time gates are now deadly to the player, and hitting one will result in immediate disintegration, so you have to be REAL CAREFUL. On the plus side, you can now rescue yourself from Game Over by dropping through the time gate after the timer has hit zero. Epic Save!

Oh, and there’s a bonus secret feature too, but I’ll leave that for you to find. Let me know on the Discord or the Steam Community boards if you find it. There’s a clue in the release notes :)

Enjoy!

Update 23 - Vesula Prime


Edge of... Somewhere?

It’s time for a new location. Vesula Prime, the first wormhole to be discovered and verified, is the backdrop for the next round of high stakes brinkmanship. The Vessel Racing Federation built its most powerful gravitational shielding to date for this track, along with creating some bespoke dampening technologies for other quantum effects. Whilst some have decried the VRF’s new location as reckless and irresponsible, others hope that new technologies it required will some day lead to the first successful Schwarzchild wormhole traversal.

See the latest release notes for more information on this update.

Enjoy!
