Hey guys,

we’d like to give you all a little update and a huge thank you for the awesome 72 hours we had during Ludum Dare 35! The topic wasn’t not easy to handle for us at first, to be honest. We struggled for quite some time, before we found our path but as we had to build that path on the fly, we just decided to let that flow into the game and create a racer, where you can do just this: build a track on the fly, why someone else has to race it simultaneously!

So we eventually decided to approach the shapeshifting-topic from a slightly different angle and allow the players to transform the tracks they are racing on, rather than transform the vehicle itself. After reaching that milestone our development-truck gained momentum pretty fast. We were surprised how fun it was, to play even the prototype and were super happy with all the positive feedback! We decided to stream the development process on twitch, which turned out to be golden. We got a lot of beta testers during the development who gave us valuable feedback. Every build was straight tested by around 20-30 people. We took their concerns and ideas serious and tried to implement the ideas and fix the reported bugs instantly.

So to make a long story short. Check out our new Game “Can’t Drive This: Because The **** Road Is Still Under Construction
