A competitive racing game with cubes

Cube Racer is a round-based multiplayer racing game. Every round, all players race against each other to the finish line. Before every round, the players get to build one or more obstacles on the map. In the next round, all players have to pass all the obstacles, which have been built yet.

The idea

So basically, the game is designed to be a fun multiplayer game. You race against your friends or other players, to finish as fast as possible and score as much points as possible. But instead of giving the winning player an advantage for the following rounds, like it is done in many other games, all players have the same conditions every round, as all players are racing on the same map, with the same obstacles.
To win, you must collect the most points by scoring as good as possible in every round.

Everyone has an ingame-level and credits.
By playing games either in singleplayer or multiplayer mode, you earn experience and credits. With your experience, you unlock new types of obstacles time by time. You can then use the credits to upgrade the obstacles you own, to make them maybe bigger, maybe stronger and develop your personal cube-racing strategy.
At the beginning of a game, every player decides, which obstacles to take along into the game.

At the moment, there are 5 different maps and 20 different obstacles.
I am currently designing new maps and will add additional obstacles to fit in the new maps.

Take a look at the Feature-list below, to see what features are already implemented, and what features are planned for future.

  • Checkpoints to respawn, in case you die or fall off the map
  • Every game is different, due to different obstacle-placements
  • Spectator mode, after you reached the finish
  • Online multiplayer and Singleplayer mode
  • Local multiplayer for LAN environment
  • 5 different maps
  • 20 different obstacles

Planned Features
  • Interactive obstacles (Moving objects, powerups, etc.)
  • Additional maps with different design ideas
  • Upgrading obstacles individually
  • Splitscreen like in the good old days ;)
  • A map editor, to allow users to create their own maps

Download link to the demo version:
Keep in mind, that this demo version only implements online multiplayer at the moment. There are multiplayer sessions, where the server is online and you can play for some time. It is shown in the game, when you try to connect to the server, how much hours there are left until the next time the server will be online.

The game is still in development, so some features may slightly change, while some new features will definitely be added. To keep up with the current state of development, check out the games Twitter.
