Sola|RC - Download

OK, Here it is in it's raw unadulterated awesomeness.

The aim of the game is to race around the track in your little solar powered race car. You have no battery, only a small capacitor which charges when in the sun and loses charge when load is places on it. Beware of the clouds, they will block the sun and your internal systems will quickly discharge the capacitor. Beware of hammering the accelerator, while this gives a boost, it quickly uses charge.
While at speed, using the brakes will replenish some charge with regen-braking.

You can only steer while moving, you can reverse if stuck.

Please bear in mind the following:

  • This game was made in 8 hours - expect bugs.
  • This game is unpolished - expect roughness
  • You can play this game forever, even though a winner is declared - you can still race around. This however turned out to be a lot of fun as people seem to be mostly interested in ramming each-other.

What you will need.

  1. Windows ( We may upload the mac version in the future and update this post )
  2. 2 Joypads. There is no keyboard support in this version.
  3. A friend. This is a 2 player game, designed to be played side by side for shouts like "In Your Face Loser!" to have full effect. Also, so the meta cheat codes can work (i.e. hitting your competitor with a pillow or pushing them off the sofa.

The controls are:

  • Right trigger - Accelerate.
  • Left Trigger - Brake - Reverse.
  • Left Stick - Steer.
  • (A) to start.

Have fun.

Small print

Of course, this game comes completely and utterly without warranty of any kind. Although the machines used to build the game are virus free (according to Avast) there are no guarantees in this world. All we can say is that the game does nothing intentionally malicious - unless pitting 2 competitive players against each-other in a race/fight to the finish/death can be called malicious.
