Space Race is a procedurally generated driving game against the clock where players attempt to navigate the course and achieve a high score.
This prototype was created in just two weeks as part of a game jam style assignment where the theme was 'learning to drive.'
The game features a controllable ship using floating style physics. There are collectables to grab and you must also land your ship correctly to complete the mission.
