All the new features added over the last few weeks have come together to be showcased in this latest build.
_speed_ drops players into an adrenaline fuelled racing game at over 400MPH!_speed_ is a top down racing game set in 2100, the dawn of a new century and a new sport, the worlds first anti gravity racing league.Pilots are put in state of the art anti gravity craft in which they will race against other pilots or the clock.I plan on having a number of features completed before release.
Features for release :
Everything will be unlocked, all tracks, crafts, craft variants, mode etc will all be available to play. What you do in arcade mode will not effect Carer or Multiplayer modes.
Career mode will start you off with each teams standard craft, by using craft you earn commendations for that team, these commendations can be used to unlock new craft variants. (see end)
The career mode will consist of a map built of lots of hexagons which will contain race events, completing events will unlock the events in the surrounding hexes.Craft Variants
Each team will have four craft types :
Completing race events will get you a gold, silver, bronze or no medal depending on how well you do as well as commendations
Power ups can be pick up by travelling over a weapons pad on the track if no power up is currently held, they are split into two categories, offensive and defensive.
It's been a while since I've released a new build due to exams and revision slowing everything down but I've got to a state where the current version is stable enough to release.
- New lighting
- 12 new craft designs

The track Stanza always seems to drop my frame rate to around 40 for some reason but the other tracks are fine.
Over the next few weeks I'll be having the last exams for my GCSEs so I expect development to be slow however, after that I have around 12 weeks of no school work!
I've been thinking about getting some new music since I'm not sure if I would be allowed to sell the game with the music and I want some original music, so if anyone wants to / knows anyone who would be interested in making some music (preferably electronica) then get in contact.
I've also moved away from tumblr and started using WordPress for my site and blog, this allows me to split posts up into different categories and have multiple pages. Overall I'm very happy with the new site however there are still a few things to finish such as getting a custom domain.
