The beta release of the PC/mobile game Swipecart; Physics based mine cart racing. Features the first world of the game, editor, controller support, and...
In the not too distant future, the very act of mining has become so dangerous that the only ones brave enough to acquire precious gems are daredevils and adrenaline junkies. And so the Global Swipecart League was formed, drawing fans and more importantly greater profit to the sport. Special tracks were constructed in order to challenge the drivers and of course provide entertainment for the fans.
Each track follows the same structure of an acceleration zone where the player builds up the desired speed for the mine cart, followed by a transition into an action zone where only braking and special abilities are allowed. Using the brakes and special abilities provided the cart must come to a stop at the exit of track.
An online server is used to track high scores, host custom user created tracks, interact with other drivers, and sync between multiple devices. With dozens of official tracks and and endless supply of user created content, gaining fans and achieving victory in the Global Swipecart League has never been easier.
The Swipecart Steam Greenlight page has launched.

Not much new to report yet. 30k greenlight visitors, the game is 99% done, just working on submissions for android and iOS

Polishing/tweaking the final 1-2% before submissions. Such agony. On the plus side, 20k + unique visitors on greenlight!

CURRENTLY #3 ON GREENLIGHT! Thank you to those who voted and apparently harbour a secret desire to fling pixel men off cliffs.
