wRoom - Ludum Dare 37 jam game by boberro

A simple driving game. Get through 10 checkpoints as fast as you can. Use brakes and don't go full speed though...
Sometime a bug happens, that makes you unable to drive. Come to full stop and tap backwards/brakes to fix it.

Game uses all standard assets of unity, few free textures, pictures of furniture stolen from Ikea website and X-Files poster.

WSAD - drive
Space - handbrake
R - respawn at last checkpoint (come to full stop first)

-----------------------------------------------------
Since I've loaded all the assets, it's quite big download. Sorry about that. It also means that webGL version is probably impossible.
My biggest problem is with borked light maps, I've spent whole monday on this problem, but to no avail.

Cool start menu! Pretty good driving physics too.

Managed to get ~83 seconds on the course on my 2nd try, yay.

it looks like in builds timer works a little different than it does in editor, so one needs to click fast in the menu to get better times :(

Overall I like the game well enough. I tried a second playthrough, but the timer didn't reset.I just ended up burning rubber all over the place for fun. I would drop the having to come to a complete stop before you can respawn though. I keep slamming the 'r' key hoping it'll restart me faster.

I can't download the game for Windows. The site is timing out.

Cool concept however the driving is not so intuitive. When you brake the car to 0kmph and press W the car does not accelerate i need to reverse a bit and then click W again.

Not bad. Nice take on the theme. Reminds me of Micro Machines, but as a slower, more simulation like version. As the others wrotes, the time seems bugged.

Good driving physics, managed to finish in just over two minutes... I did feel the first couple of checkpoints with the U turns were a bit tricky tho

It was supposed to be tricky, otherwise people would finish it in 30 seconds and just delete :D

I'll try to upload a version with fixed timer and maybe do something about DNS

The core mechanics are great! I like the graphics, and the controls are smooth. Nice game.

Cool game. Good effort on making the main menu not static. Driving mechanics work well (maybe a tad sensitive for me) but otherwise it's rather simple and manages to provide a few minutes of fun.
