ARTICLE/BACKSTORY:
This entry isn't all I had hoped it would be. I learned about the MiniLD halfway through the second day leaving me with 1.5 days to come up with something cool. Looking over the list of themes, my fist thought was "Weird/Unexpected/Surprise", but after sketching out a design, I realized it would take too much modeling (my worst skill). Next up came "Island" I actually made a bare-bones island generator by the end of the second day and was fairly happy with it. On the morning of the third day, things clearly weren't working out with "Isle of Bones" so I moved on to the "Roads" theme. Thus, this was born, more an editor than a game (I just used the sample Unity car to maximize my time spent on the editor) but I'm fairly happy with it.

Love the concept of drawing your own track. Really well done! I included your game in part 2 of my MiniLD #60 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :) https://youtu.be/ScKh3ZyaXxI
