Shapeshift Racer0.2 Description:
Procedural environments are the next big thing in video games, because they should technically allow for infinite amounts of content in sandbox games. In fact, this is already the case in a few games out there, such as Minecraft, or the upcoming No Manís Sky. On the other hand, that doesnít mean itís all figured out yet, because thereís a lot left to discover and improve in the field. Shapeshift Racer is a simple game designed for Ludum Dare, in which your main goal is to keep the pedal to the metal for as long as possible, while also trying not to hit any obstacles on your way. There are no other missions or responsibilities to worry about, although the game does get pretty stressful after a point, given the fact that the speed increases at a constant rate. The obstacles you have to watch out for are actually just cubes and poles coming out of the track, and they seem to appear and disappear from thin air, albeit gradually. A single collision is enough to end your race, so itís mandatory that you pay close attention to the road ahead and try to avoid keeping the same course for too long, unless you want your car to be shattered.
