GameplayClassic Sport Driving is a retro racer for racing lines lovers.
Get back to 1990, try to read the road ahead, remember it, cut curves, brake as late as possible, avoid missing the apex, and exit curves at the limit!
IA opponents will take care of messing up with ideal racing lines, and require some improvisation skills from the player.
The game will feature a solo campain (checkpoints, time out), and, depending on kickstarter results, split screen multiplayer, record times sharing, and a track generator.
InspirationsRemember Lotus Turbo Challenge, Jaguar XJ220, Lamborghini American Challenge, or of course Outrun -amongst many others-?
Take them as visual inspiration: 2D hand drawn graphics, vast spaces feeling, exploration.
Give the physics engine a boost -remaining arcade though-, and allow for precise racing lines à la Trackmania Nations.
Feed the races with a wide variety of curves, inspired from Colin McRae Rally, replace the copilot with road signs...
...and you have the secret recipe for Classic Sport Driving!
