Description:

A simple arcade top down racing game using the vehicle constraint. Up to 4 players, no AI opponents yet.

For now there's only one race track and one type of car (with hardly any textures). I hope to add more tracks and (textured) cars later on.

Joysticks should work but I don't have one at the moment so I couldn't try. Please let me know if it does not work. In case you don't have a joystick either leave the slots for player 3/4 empty and stick to the keyboard. Otherwise it will cause errors in the game.

UPDATE: I made some minor changes and included a little description on how to make your own cars and tracks.

Thx, have fun!

    Hey Chagas, good to see you :D Btw. thanks for mentioning Generally the other day - I didn't know it and spend a lot of (too much?!) time watching videos! Very inspiring! I updated the zip and included a short how-to text file with it. Hope it helps. If not please comment or PN so I can try to help. Cheers!

    That would be nice to record all frame during the game, and the use Cycle or another render engine to rerender the "race" (with why not a camera inside). Do you think there's way to do that ? I've tried but without success I can only play the game, or see "the menu" :(

    Hey wax, I don't think there's an easy way to do that (cars are created dynamically etc.). But if you know a little Python you could record the cars worldTransform matrix and dump it into a file. Then switch to regular Blender, open the track file ./lib/tracks/Elevator.blend, append the car(s) from ./lib/cars/MonsterBug.blend and write some more lines of Python code to apply the worldTransforms back for each frame. Guess that's the "easiest" way, sorry ; )

    Thank for the reply. I don't think my skills will permit me to do that easily ^^. But I'll try anyway

    One of the first game projects i have seen on Blendswap.

    Fine example that games can be created inside blender engine. Nice work tigertowel.
