Description
What Is This?

T a k e Y o u r T i m e 's a vaporwave/synthwave/chillwave inspired arcade racing game, with nice pixelated aesthetics and great music to enjoy during your races.
It's more an experience than a game, made to be a cool tribute to chill music and old pixelated games.
The main focus is to create something that will give to these awesome music tracks a new interactive chilling dimension, like if you're in the song's videoclip.
This is something a lot of users in Youtube comments are writing about: feeling the digital nostalgia of riding a car in an absolute wonderful scenario.

The game part

The main things that make this a game are the following:
  • Choose between tracks and race to beat your best time in each track.
  • Race against other players times and try to be the leader of your favourite track.
Of course there is a lot of space to get better and add other gamemodes, and that's why I need Greenlight's help: I need suggestions for tracks, music and gamemodes.

What's next (I mean, the first thing I'm going to add when I get my hands back on the game): music changes as you race, making you able to slow it or pitch it if you smash something or go into a big jump. Then, finally, making music one of the most important elements in the whole gameplay, and I need ideas to make it for real.

The Aesthetic Experience Part

As an experience more than a game, the following elements are really something I spent a lot of time:
  • Music is important: switch between radio mode and normal mode to feel the music in a different way.
  • Pixelated graphics will take you into a cool nostalgic mood.
  • The best Chillwave and Synthwave tracks from the top small/indie/internet musicians.
  • Cool racing tracks: put yourself into a countryside sunset or a night city and feel the vibrations.

Will ever be on Greenlight?

Hopefully, as soon as I get some money to pay the fee I'll surely give it a try on Early Access category.

Is it already playable?

Of course, and will always be in the early stages of development.
When and if in future it reaches the store I'll probably sell it for a really low price, depending if there's interest in it.
If no one cares about my game, it will be free forever.

I n e e d h e l p: what track do you think will fit better a racing track like this? (https://s4.postimg.org/wq0spu97x/Palmy_Preview.png)

That could be a little weird for all the european/american guys I think :P

for the full asthetic experience you should drive on the right side of the car like in japan
エルロイおじさん Aug 16, 2016 @ 2:36am 
cool, thanks for the reply

Not yet, but that will hopefully be something easy to implement by adding some more physics to the wheels.

can you drift?

The level editor is something I never thought and could be really interesting to add, surely it deserves a shot when and if the project hits more players. I'm trying my best on level creation and I will spend some more time doing the new tracks since the first two were made in barely a couple days in the hurry to release something playable. Thank you for the feedback!

The accent on lighting in the tracks gives a nice vibe. With some high building and track variety or even a level editor/creator this could be an interesting nostalgia drive. Coming from someone that barely plays indie titles.
