HOLD SPACE to drift.  ARROW KEYS to steer. 

No ads. No tracking. No IAP. Just game. Crazy huh?

You have a car. 

It can turn. 

Hell. It even drifts. Which is a good thing.

Why is drifting a good thing you may ask? 

Because it's the only way you'll survive Akina Pass.

Actually... you probably won't make it past the first corner. We can't all be Takumi.

The Dark Souls of driving games! Really fun to play after seeing your video updates in the DragonRuby Discord. I appreciate the past crash markers and how well the minimalist style works.

Any chance the drifting can support gamepad controls? Steering works already, but drifting only seemed to work with Spacebar from my testing.

I think I mapped R for drifting via a controller :-)

Rad, thanks!! Been enjoying it on iOS too to get my practice in. 😄

265 on Akina

140 on usui



imagine if there were no checkpoints :)

Heck yea! You enjoying the game? Any feedback? I’m thinking of adding Myogi Pass next.

ofc it is enjoyable ... and will play it

for a feedback  .. for me the game is balanced .. not too hard .. not to easy , and the edge detection is forgiving (imagine failing if you touch the corner of the road)

Also ... this one inspired me to make a similar game for the 20 sec gamejam (will try to submit it in less than a week)


and.. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

Something absolutely ridiculous to try is to try to beat a track while never releasing the drift button. It’s… interesting I think.

And no I haven’t been able to get very far doing that XD (still tried for 30 minutes straight)

would make a good challenge video ..... 

OR you can make the drift toggle-able through the pause menu as a hardcore mode ... and the car will be drifting by default

Yep. Still experimenting with it before I commit to making it a new mechanic. I’m not sure if it’s fun or if it’s because I’m crazy

I really like the lights! Also I can't drive at all lol

205.73s I think about 4 or 5 deaths. Took me a while to get used to the drifting.

I was able to master and got to the unfinished area or finished area IDK if the map still unfinished


That’s the end of Akina pass :-)

My fastest time is 151.47, zero deaths.

Try to beat it ^_^

I made it past the first corner after way too many tries but it was worth it :D

For the second corner. Try turning more. Also try turning less. But definitely turn maybe.

I never could wrap my brain around straightening out after a turn. I seem to be conditioned to expect letting go of the key to let me go straight. I think having a graphic show how much I am turning would help. I think even having a bar with a square in it would help. Turning left the square moves left in the bar and as you 'right' yourself it moves back towards the center.

I find that my mind has a hard time with the land not moving relative to the camera. When I go driving, the world changes relative to my eyes (the camera). To play this game I would have to rewire how I think.

I hope the feedback is handy. I don't have an issue with the game--the controls just don't match how my brain works.

Really solid concept for a car game! The controls are very precise, so it's hard for a newbie like me to figure them out, but I could see racing game fans really enjoy this challenge. It's nice that you don't have to have a button pushing the gas constantly. I imagine once you figure out drifting this game is very satisfying to watch as well. Nice pixel effects and SFX on the drift too!
