Rainy Day Racer, version 1.2

Alright, troops? Rainy Day Racer v.1.2 is now live. This update features an improved audio setup, with a pleasingly cosy new muffle effect when using the in-car cam, and proper occlusion of the ambience when in tunnels. You can also now browse the entire leaderboard, rather than just your own page. Various other fixes and additions too. Back in a week or so with another pass at the handling. See you soon!

Rainy Day Racer, version 1.1

Hello! Rainy Day Racer version 1.1 is now live. Yes, just 1.1, can't afford another decimal place, not in this economy.

This isn't a huge update, and frankly will be of little interest to anyone who isn't a big nerd. Glad to see you're still reading! We've switched the game over to (almost) entirely vertex-based lighting, as befits the game's low-poly 3D. We wanted to get this in originally, but Unity makes it a huge ballache to vertex light stuff, so we canned it, but now after a bit of finagling in the new version, it's working! Still doesn't look as good as Ridge Racer Type 4, but it's a little closer. The upshot is that performance should now be significantly better, especially on weaker GPUs.

Also added a map icon for ghosts, fixed the UI scaling for non 16:9 resolutions, and made a few other minor fixes. Jump in again next week for a more substantial, less ruthlessly self-indulgent update. Thank you!

About This Game

Rainy Day Racer is a 3D time-attack motor racing game set in a Scottish city where it rains all the time, all the time, just absolutely hammers it down every effing day. Physics are arcadey and forgiving, with no collision damage and gently railroaded drifting. Rattle round the city a few times until you can keep off the pavement and avoid the lampposts, then upload your best times and ghosts to the leaderboards for a bit of friendly competition. There are 3 vehicles, 3 courses (one bit is shared between two courses, so maybe more like 2.8 courses), 1 halfway-interested commentator, and 1 beautiful woman model who'll twirl and hold up a sign with your name on it if you set a good record.
