What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“JOLT: Super Robot Racer is in a good place. It has a good selection of levels, the majority of the Art has been done and most importantly, its fun! The game is needing feedback, stress testing and player experiences; so that we can deliver the highest quality game possible.

Going Early Access, will help us to continue development by adding even more content; which includes new levels and new game modes. But, it also gives you the opportunity to voice your own opinion to help shape the game!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to be in Early Access for roughly 6 months. This will give us enough time to expand and refine what we have, whilst also giving us the time to make the changes / add the content that you would like to see.

Obviously, if we see the benefits of JOLT remaining in early access for a longer period, we'll continue to do so.”

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

  • Online Multiplayer!
  • More Levels!
  • More robots!
  • More Game Modes!
  • Improved Ranking and leveling system!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

This version has local multiplayer only! Online multiplayer is still being developed and will be released later.

The games core mechanics are in and working. We have our AI ready if you want to play by yourself, but of course, we also have support for up to 4 local players.

Our Robot Creator is in, and each player is able to create a robot to race with.

The game is being optimized as we go and so shouldn't require a high end PC to run.

Expect to receive Levels, Game Modes and Character updates; as soon as they're ready to go.”

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

“JOLT will be cheaper in price if you jump in at this early stage.”

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

“We want the community as active as possible. Feel free to send emails, tweet at the developers and post on the community page. Whether you've a question and need help or want to leave feedback, we'll read them all, and respond promptly when available.”

About This Game




JOLT is a fast paced, racing party game. The game at its core is a competitive platformer that’s all about maintaining momentum with skilful navigation. The players compete to be the last robot standing. Using a charged burst of speed called the JOLT, and an array of different objects in the environment; your goal is to outperform or outright sabotage the other racers. Eliminated players are down but not out through the use of the VOID, a random Sabotage Power-Up that allows players to initiate revenge and change the outcome of the race!


  • JOLT – A charged burst of speed that can effect certain objects
  • VOID – Sabotage Power-Ups from post-elimination
  • Local Multiplayer racing, up to FOUR players
  • Chaotic, fast paced rounds
  • Skill and Timing based gameplay
  • Multiple Tracks
  • Multiple Game Modes
  • Create your own Robot


The JOLT is a player's primary utility to winning the race. It has 3 stages of charge, each one taking longer to store but each allowing you to shoot considerably further. If the player can time its use correctly; they can use it just before a curve to shoot up a wall or JOLT through an obstacle. Many short cuts in the levels are JOLT dependant.



Once eliminated, a player has the opportunity to execute the VOID. After punching in the correct sequence, the VOID player is gifted a random Power-Up to inflict mass-disruption to the existing racers.



The game features multiple Game Modes; Racer is the standard and most game modes are based off this, such as Light Mode (where the level is dark and the leading player has a light attached to them).
