80's OVERDRIVE

Status Update


Hi

We know we did not put any information update since the end of 2016. We know also that, we promised the game to be published in Q1/Q2 2017. We’re really sorry we failed your expectations and stayed silent for such a long time.

However, this year was very productive for us. Actually, being offline and away from all the buzz is very good for doing work. We just wanted to focus on what there is to be done. Please remember, we are a small, indie team. We must balance our „normal” lives, day jobs, etc. with the development of this game. We don’t want to publish a complete crap also. It wouldn’t be fair.

Due to many reasons, we are unable to give you exact release date. However, please take a look at the numbers below. We are close to the end with the development. Let us inform you about the game status.

This is how the things are:

  • Car art/animation - 100% done
  • Races environment art - 100% done
  • Menu art/design - 100% done
  • Career Mode code - 100% done
  • Time Attack code - 100% done
  • Level Editor code - 99% done
  • Music and sound fx - 99% done
  • Gameplay balance - 70% done
  • Marketing assets (necessary for release) - 50% done
  • 3DS E-manual - 50% done
  • Required game ratings - 0% done

What is more:

  • Most of the gameplay time we have 60 fps even on old 3ds.
  • All of the crashes and most of bugs were fixed, we don’t run out of memory.
  • Game is tested all the time to be stable and fast most of the time.

We are very determined to release the best game we can. So please keep fingers crossed and stay tuned for incoming news.
Soon…
