This is a chase/race game designed for VR. I do not play many video games, however in the past few years I have enjoyed the Need for Speed franchise and with my interest in VR I thought it would be of value to my abilities and knowledge to attempt to create a game that I would enjoy.

Update: June 13, 2017. This is the first release, however this is only a test-bed. This is to allow me to see the game in action, to see what works, what does not and to plan the next steps. I thought it would be of value to share the process from the very start. This will allow me to get feedback and to share the idea as it grows. The idea is to create a neon-future city that you can drive, chase and out run the police. Since I am in no-way a graphic designer I purchased this city set and made some adjustments to give me a basic idea of what I want the game to look like. I plan to have the final version to be a more stylized low-poly game. At the moment all traffic is simply "on a track" so do not expect much, this is a very simple starting point.

Update: June 14, 2017. Updated the lighting and added a glow to neon items. Added a cop that will chase you if you are close enough to it. The "racer" hover car now has headlights and brakelights, and many of the other hover cars have brakelights. Lots of little updates to the environment, while thinking through other issues I'm adding and updating the game to fill it and make it more interesting. Updated the Racer's engine sound (I think you'l appreciate that)

The vehicles will hover and have the ability to jump over other items. Users will be able to add their own music and the windows in buildings will react to the music. Currently the windows are turning on and off randomly to simulate this effect.

Testbed 1

I was listening to The Cars "Heartbeat City" while playing NFS and it clicked as the inspiration for the game. So I created a playlist of additional songs that I believe match the feel of the game, to inspire me and move me in the direction I believe the game should go.

Again, this is not completed software, it is not "beta", or even "alpha", heck this is very much pre-alpha. A lot will change.
