What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Racing Glider is a game under development of which I am the only developer, so it is important to involve the community to help me to create a fun, dynamic and stable racing game.
I want players to be able to discover the game as early as possible to gather insights and ideas during development. Relationships with the community are very fruitful to create a game rich of content and well finalized. Close collaboration with players will allow the emergence of new elements and concepts, as well as the identification of problems or bugs.
As the game is in early stages of development, players may experience bugs, crashes, performance issues, saving issues, etc... These hazards are part of the process and will make it possible to reference and correct problems as the development progresses.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is difficult to predict the exact duration of the early access period.
This will depend on new ideas that will be added to the development as well as player feedback on improvements and possible fixes.
The full version of the game should be released in August 2019.”

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

“The final version of the game will offer a new vision of the futuristic racing game.
Driving based on physics with a Rally influence, very different from the classics of the genre.

Planned additions:
-Add a vehicle type "land speeder".
-Add other vehicles.
-A new category of circuit for each new vehicle added.
-Add the medal system to unlock the circuits.
-Frequent addition of circuit all categories.
-Add "Endurance" game mode and more.
-More graphic and audio adjustment options.
-Improvements of interfaces, menus and HUD.
-Improvements of the save system.
-And all the good things that can be done.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of Racing Glider focuses on the main game mode (Time Attack), as well as on the first prototype vehicle.
The current version provides access to 11 playable circuits in both directions. All circuits are unlocked in this version. Changes will be made during the development. All current content may change or not change significantly.”

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

“The price of Racing Glider will be revised during the maturation of the game and the addition of content.”

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

“To make Racing Glider a unique and complete racing game of its kind, I would like to unite a large community here on Steam. Set up discussions around ideas, inspirations and impressions of players, as well as sections about bugs and other worries.
A Facebook page, twitter and a website are also available.
I specify that I am currently alone to manage all aspects of the game and communication. I would be there for the players as best as I can, but I could not be everywhere at the same time.”
