Description


Race, dodge, focus, avoid, run, squeeze, destroy, block,
trick and SO MUCH MORE and all at HIGH SPEED!
Your job is to outlive others players, maneuver your vehicle to
destroy the others and dodge obstacles at the same time.
Every second map get tighter and you have to watch our back all the time.





Yes, really, 16 players and a big TV!
Invite all your friends and play together.
This is one of few games that can do that!
Can you imagine fun playing with so many friends in living room?


No one will get bored. Action is VERY FAST and one round takes just about 30 seconds.
You won’t have time to use bathroom!


Stamina comes to your aid, it will charge slowly,
you can use it to run faster or slower and
block opponents steering in small area around you.
On other hand bonuses will appear in random spots on map,
you can pick them up and use later.


You can use your gamepad from console.
We support all popular gamepads and much more.
You can checkout on this website if your
gamepad is covered: Rewired - Supported Controllers [guavaman.com].


You need only one hand to play Photon Rush, you can reach snacks or hold drink and play at the same time.
So maybe you have limited number of gamepads? That’s fine, we got it covered! Two player can play game simultaneously using only one gamepad.
Also isn't it perfect excuse to get closer to your date?


Explosion Blast
You can destroy obstacles, players and balls. Shielded players are immune.

Shield
While being shielded you can go thru obstacles and balls and players.
If other player have is shielded then collision logic is like you both have no shield (see Collision paragraph below).
You can not leave map, walls will destroy you.

Death Zone
You can create zone where no one except you can not steer inside zone.
Inside zone bonuses or powers (stamina) can be used.


Player Vehicle have front and back side.
If you hit opponent back side with your front side - you lose.
If you hit opponent front side with your front side - you both lose.


We are open for new ideas, you can also help us to decide what is important for you in upcoming updates!

Some of our ideas, new bonuses:
  • Restore Full Stamina
  • Very dense trait (trait mean those boxes that vehicles leave behind)
  • Reverse Steering Zone
  • Teleport somewhere
  • Dash ahead and destroy everything in a way

Features:
  • Show reply
  • Online multiplayer
  • Team vs Team mode
  • Player drop in drop out support
  • AI - artificials opponents

this reminds me of TRON. Looks pretty fun too!

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!

We managed to gather 15 people and test game together, it was real fun and one big TV with Full HD was fine.
We did not thought about using 2 monitors - it is awesome idea!

Did not know about virtual gamepads, THANKS AGAIN!

I helped the dev of "bob's game" test if the game could start up with 32 local players. In order to do this I combined physical and virtual gamepads + keyboard players.

Virtual gamepads is a trick that can be used to test 16 gampeads on your game as well.
Does Photon Rush support multiple screens in order to have a playable 16 player game?

@supersmo Thanks!
This game should be fine with 16 gamepad but I have only 8 so I did not yet test if more also work

Good luck! We need more games supporting 8 game pads :-)

@JasonSpine Thank you, we have missed that. Right now gameplay video have sound.
In further releases we want to bring possibility to choose your vehicle from wide range but it is "nice to have" rather "must be". Our main foucus is game mechanics right now.
