Thank you all!
Description
Release date: 2015
Overview
PolyRace is a fast-paced futuristic 3d racing game with infinite number of possible race tracks. Choose the hovercraft that best fit your piloting skills, spend upgrade points to improve its characteristics and compete in the daily track trophy against other players.

Gameplay
Every day a new single race track is automatically generated by the game. The game begins when you are in the garage and you have to choose from the four hovercrafts available. This choice defines the league in which you will be competing. Once you have chosen your vehicle, the race begins. The controls of the hovercraft are minimalist: direction and boost. Stay focus, go as fast as possible, dodge rocks, trees, cactuses ... all obstacles. Remember to keep an eye on the energy gauge, if it runs empty, the hovercraft will explode. If you reach the end of the race, take the time to watch the replay, look how you can improve your trajectory and prepare for your next race. If you have credits, you can spend them in the garage to improve your hovercraft characteristics
The first race is always single player but in the following, you will be competing with the ghost of other players stronger than you.

Hovercrafts
There are four classes of hovercraft. Classified by easy handling order, classes are Echo, Kilo, Tango and Whiskey. The class also defines the league in which the player plays.

Class Echo - Titan

Titan's nominal speed is very low but has a huge boost. It has the biggest speed range. The side effect of this huge boost is that it can be activated only for a short period of time. However, its activation is relatively cost effective. The Titan is heavy and has a very powerful shield that can take multiple obstacles with nearly no effect on the speed. It's the best choice for beginner.

Class Kilo - T-Rex

T-Rex is THE average hovercraft. Not good, not bad! Its huge vertical hull gives the best trajectory but the lost turn efficiency. With the smallest speed range and biggest boost duration, it is the perfect vehicle for long curve and straight lines. Its boost activation is very expensive in energy, so use it with care.

Class Tango - Taalon

The Taalon has the highest nominal speed and turn speed. The cross-shaped hull gives a very high efficiency in the curve with a good trajectory control.

Class Whiskey
To be announced.

GloveGames, I'm still working on the level generator. I hope you will like the improvement. Tweaklab, I'm already working with a music composer, thank you.

This looks really cool, massive nostalgia trip! If you guys need any additional music for the OST I have a whole bunch of house/trance/drum & bass/dubstep tunes I'm looking to get more involved with indie games :) www.soundcloud.com/tweaklab

Well, I had achievements in minds. I will have a closer look to cards!

Tork, you should definitely consider both achievements and Steam Trading Cards. You make a percentage from market sales of cards, emoticons, and backgrounds. Besides, they also serve as free advertisement when people use the emoticons in chat or the background and badges on their profile.
