We are a small independent studio. We have spent the last 2 years developing Tropical Heat. We love old school arcade racing games, but we also like a little bit of the physics defying fun in games like SSX. Tropical Heat is all about building up power to jump into big air to perfom as many tricks as you can while still keeping an eye on winning the race. We hope that you enjoy playing the Tropical Heat demo with your friends! If you enjoy playing, please rate the game!

We made Tropical Heat, because we wanted to play a game that made us feel like we had left the real life rat race and escaped to remote tropical islands where we could bask in the sunshine and feel the rhythm of the ocean waves as we raced jet skis with our friends just for the pure joy of it. That's how we feel when we play Tropical Heat. We hope you feel the same way when you play!

  • Scores

    Tropical Heat is not just a race to the finish line. You're also competing to get the most points, the most tricks, and the biggest jumps. At the end of each race, you can see how well you scored.

  • Tricks

    Big jumps into the air allow you to do tricks. In Tropical Heat, there are two types of tricks. Tricks performed with a Jet Ski, like a flip, and tricks performed on a Jet Ski, like a hand stand. Get big enough air and you can do more than one trick or even trick combos, like flipping the Jet Ski while doing a handstand.

  • Diving

    Ramps are not the only way to get big jumps in Tropical Heat. Using power to boost your speed, you can dive under the water which causes you to jump back out of the water. The deeper you dive the higher your jump out of the water. Dive deep enough under big waves and you can even jump over the corner of an island.

9 comments by redblueq1 on Jul 8th, 2013

The Debut 3 Bundle is the latest collection of games seeking a place on Steam from Indie Royale. Five games -- Stained, Tropical Heat - Jetski Racing, LogiGun, Tales of Maj'Eyal and Crayon Chronicles -- from developers we hope will be the indie stars of tomorrow. There's also a great bonus album from Stephen Pearlman The Raven - for those who beat the $8 price. 



Stained
RealAxis Software’s Stained is a side scrolling action-platformer with a healthy dose of puzzles. Set in a mysterious castle featuring detailed 3D environments with a continually changing game world, the the player is kept guessing what the next puzzle will be.
Stained is available for Windows via Desura and DRM-Free.

Tropical Heat - Jetski Racing

Tropical Heat - Jetski Racing is available for Windows via Desura and via a CD-Key. It's also available for Mac.

LogiGun
A physics-based puzzle platformer from developer Sodium Eyes about a girl named June as she climbs a tower filled with perplexing puzzles.

Tales of Maj'Eyal is available for Windows via Desura and for Mac & Linux via a CD-Key.

Crayon Chronicles
Crayon Chronicles offers a relatively short but action-packed RPG experience that randomly generates the level layouts each time you play. You are encouraged to play through the game more than once thanks to the random nature of the environment layouts, but also because the developer - Outer Grid Games - keeps track of the interesting facts about each play-through so you can compare your adventures to others'.
Crayon Chronicles is  is available for Windows via Desura and via a CD-Key. 

The Bundle Album $8 Bonus
The bundle bonus album is from Stephen Pearlman (Haberdashery) who has been crafting synth-pop since 2004. Strongly influenced by Erasure and Björk, his productions are lush and incorporate multi-layered cinematic sounds with pop sensibilities. Bundle bonus album The Raven represents is an electropop adaptation of "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. Beat the $8 price to get this bonus album.

You can find more information on The Spiral Groove Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via its FacebookTwitter and Google+ pages. As ever, the bundle is cheaper the sooner that you purchase its (unless, of course, some kind purchaser opts to lower the price for others) although there is tremendous value here whatever price you pay.

No, you do NOT have to hold up to accelerate. The game SUGGESTS for you to press up during the keybind/calibration prompts, but you can actually choose any gamepad button you want for any function. I chose the right-trigger to accelerate on my 360 gamepad and it worked great! Just run through the config screens again and pick whatever buttons you want when prompted (disregard the suggestions).

Also want to know, especially since a standalone version is also absent from the Indie Royale.

There should be a standalone version available now. We had updated it to a new version, so for a couple of days it wasn't available.

There is a place where you configure the controller. Most controllers should work, and we tested with a wide variety including some wheels. Definitely any of the Logitech gamepads, as well as the XBox 360, as Red45 mentioned.

Lowest Rated (7 agree) 1/10

Not only have the developers of this game erased my review, they seem to also have erased my rating of their game. So it seems that they are not satisfied to delete any comments that raise issues, but now even ratings and reviews are not safe from their attempts to control the discussion of their game, and the very restrictive DRM that will leave you with nothing to show for your money, should the company fold, or just decide they no longer want to run the servers. The game itself is a fairly mediocre…
