Pretty Fly Games

Coming out of Early Access

Hi-ya arcade racers!

We’ve set the release date of Total Arcade Racing to 7th of May 2021. It will be released on Steam and Nintendo Switch simultaneously. On Steam it won’t be that dramatic since the game is already available as Early Access so we’ll pretty much just flip the switch and it will be released.

On Monday we’ll be bringing the price up to the planned release tag which is 9.99$. We do this in order to have the ability to have a release discount of 30% on launch. So if you plan to buy the game then either do it before Monday or wait until the release to get the best deal.

Latest updates

Since the last news post we’ve released 10 updates. Here are some of the highlights in the updates.

Support for keyboard mapping

The most frequent request we’ve had is the ability to remap the keyboard. Implementing remapping of keyboards isn’t as easy as it sounds but we think that we did a pretty good job in our implementation.

New course - Jungle Rally

We set out to create a new biome and after playing around with various concepts we decided to create a jungle style course. On this course you’ll drive on a dirt road where the offroad cars have an edge compared with the other cars that will slip around a lot more.

New course - Jungle Leap

Jumps are always fun in levels but they are pretty hard to get properly incorporated into levels. But on the jungle course they feel just right.

New course - Lost in Suburbia

The suburbia style level was a great addon and we decided to create another course with a similar concept but with a lot more track. This is probably the longest track we’ve done so far which covers most of the screen 🙂

Endless love

Endless mode has been somewhat lacking when it comes to variation and also how traffic worked. So either it was time to toss this mode all together or get it updated. We decided to keep the mode and put in a lot of effort to make it better. There is still room to improve it with more variation and tuning but we’re pretty happy with the result now.
