5 HOURS LEFT!!! Stretch Goal #2 Announced: Random Track Generation
November 16, 2012 - Refract
With the aid of a $10,000 backer (another arcade cabinet!), we just blew past our first stretch goal of $150k! That means that we'll now be including full Replay/Spectate modes!!
One thing that was experimented with in Nitronic Rush was random track generation, where at the click of a button a completely fresh track would be created each time. Obstacles, ramps, road pieces, environment models, etc. would be placed in a unique way that makes sense for the progression of the track. Unfortunately it never shipped with the game due to time constraints to finish everything, but we want to expand on that idea in Distance!
If we reach $165,000 by the end of the time limit today, the Random Track Generation Mode would allow you to create a vast number of unique tracks after providing a few parameters to tweak the overall type of track being generated. You can share specific seeds with your friends as well so that they can play tracks that you discovered!
