Advance is Greenlit!!! :D
Advance now in the top 200!
Description
Advance is a suspense-laden, stealth racing game for 1 to 4 local players where the aim is to race your secretly assigned robot to the finish while simultaneously controlling an armed contestant that you use to guard the goal from the others!

Outwit your opponents
Control a racing robot that can stop to protect itself with a shield versus the gun toting contestants which you must use to prevent the others from reaching the end first. Do you blend in with the robot horde and sneak to the end when the others are distracted or do you charge ahead and trust in knowing when to stop to deflect your opponent's bullets? Can you trust your opponent to hold back the tide or are they aiming at their own robot so you won't think to shoot it?

Multiple Game modes
* Onslaught: No extra rules, just lots of robots!
* Turbo Onslaught: Movement speed doubled and reload times halved.
* Switch: When your robot gets shot it switches places with an AI robot.
* Waltzing Queen: Shoot the queen to gain her favour. If an AI or the Queen reaches the finish line, whoever has the queen's favour wins.
* Proxy: Shooting a robot makes it your proxy. While you don't control your proxy, it counts as one of your robots for victory conditions.

Bots
Friends can't make it? Not to worry, Advance provides three levels of challenging AI opponents to keep you more than busy.

Choose your controls
Each player gets to pick their own controls and input device when they join the game, so whether you prefer keyboard or gamepad and no matter what your button layout preference is, you can specify it all right off the bat without having to dig through menus.

Well, it's been a while but I'll be doing the finishing touches over the next few days, so, depending on how long the various submissions take I'd estimate about 2 to 3 weeks from now. Sorry I can't be more specific than that at the moment :)

Just wondering if there's any more information available on a potential release date?

Yup, sorry I've been rather quiet. Once the release trailer is all done I should be almost ready to go.

Played Advance today at 4TG Games Convention in Aberdeen. Really great indie game, basic enough that you can get to grips with it quickly whilst still being a great challenge! :steamhappy:
