What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Acro Storm is a game that needs a lot of work in order to realize its mission of telling varied stories while having fun, unique racing challenges, and still retaining excellent gameplay. Early Access will allow us to do a number of things- build up a base of people who are willing to give gameplay feedback based on personal experience, allow the people interested in the sheer racing aspect to enjoy the game then and there, and give us valuable exposure to fix any bugs that may be uncaught by in-house testing.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate the game to remain in Early Access for roughly a year further.”

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

“Full version of the game is planned to have all 16 tracks, all characters + story modes for each, a larger number of bikes, finalized online, and a track editor.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently we have three characters, four tracks, and four vehicles. Online is being worked on, but unfinalized, and there are currently no storylines, although there is a Grand Prix mode as well as a Time Trial mode, and a Single Race / Arcade mode.”

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

“Yes; the game will be far cheaper during Early Access- it will remain that price until all characters have been implemented and a specific number of tracks have been finished, upon which we will raise the price exactly once, and still for less than half the intended final price. The price will increase once more once Early Access ends.”

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

“The community will be vital to informing us about bugs, suggesting bike stats, and various other features. They are also free to suggest things such as challenges and other such secondary objectives. We intend to inform them regularly of the state of development, and to have community events throughout Early Access as well.”

Event Delay

Howdy folks! Just as the name says, unfortunately, due to life causing a bit of a detour (family reasons on at least one team member's part), the Qualifying Event will have to be delayed to the next weekend- March the 3rd-4th. This gives us a week to polish things up a bit more and you all a bit more time to practice! We'll keep you updated in case anything further changes- apologies to the late notice.

Presenting! The Acro Storm Qualifying Races!

Hello! First, we want to say to those out there- thanks for sticking by us as we continue to develop the game! We've got a number of content updates in the wings, and we think you'll be rather excited to see them in the coming weeks- just in time for our first racing competition!

That's right! We are hearby announcing that Blue Comet Games will, on the last weekend in Febuary (24/25th) be hosting the Acro Storm Qualifying Races Event!

What this will be is a registration-only, livestreamed, multi race event, where the the prizes will be: the top three finishers will get the opportunity to have a vehicle designed by them in the game, and the grand prize being an opportunity to put a racer of their own in the game! Further details will come at a later date, but please don't be afraid to PM me with any particular questions or concerns, and don't be afraid to sign up now!

About This Game

About the Game

Acro Storm is a futuristic racing game which takes you into the galaxy's greatest sport, airbike racing! Take your pick of one of these high speed machines, and your choice of character, and prove you've got the mettle to race with the best, facing off against dangerous courses, and dangerous rivals!

The Story So Far

Airbike racing is one of the biggest sports in the galaxy- and for good reason- the thrills, danger, and sheer premise attracts people of all sorts. Of the many organizations out there, the ACRO (Airbike Competetive Racing Organization) is the biggest supporter of the sport, and is also the host of the PAR (Pro Airbike Racing) Grand Prix. There's a great deal that goes into the event, having a great many planets and corporations sponsoring it, in exchange for putting their names on display. The Grand Prix is also notable for its racing field being a mix of both exclusive invitation and yet having open qualifiers for bold racers to claim one of the coveted open spots. It is right after these have concluded that Acro Storm begins, as everyone is preparing for the first race. Countless fears, hopes, dreams, nightmares, and more are all running through their heads as they take the first of those final steps...

Features

  • Characters

(The features described here will appear in the final build of the game. For this early-access version, three of the twelve characters are available, and their story mode stories are not yet playable.)

A total of twelve characters have made it their mission to win the Pro Airbike Racing Grand Prix, and they've made it to the final competition. Why? Find out, playing each of their story modes, completing specific challenges that will allow you to progress in their stories and discover what drives them forward. Characters will interact with each other on and off the track, giving each a bit more depth than just 'people on bikes'.

  • Vehicles

(The features described here will appear in the final build of the game. For this early-access game, Pocket and Cruiser classes are not yet available, nor are most customization options.)
Vehicles in Acro Storm, come in three categories, all with their own pros and cons: Sport, Pocket, and Cruiser. Each of these vehicle types are not only generally quite variant to the other categories, but can be customized within their own class, so you can trick out your vehicle just as you like! It's important to find a vehicle type that fits your racing style, as all are viable.

  • Weapons

There are a plethora of weapons, both offensive and defensive, to carve yourself a path to the winner's podium in the grand prix. The weapons system is designed in a way that you'll always have multiple weapons to choose from when they're available. It'll take split second reflexes to figure out the right weapon to choose from, and to utilize it effectively- it'll also take those same skills to learn to evade weapons. Spinning is a powerful technique that can remove the threat of most projectile weapons temporarily, and it'll be a vital skill to learn on your way to the top.


There will be more coming soon, as well, such as online features like clans, matchmaking, and more!
