Notice: Xbox360 gamepad only supported on downloaded builds, not in browser.

There are 3 races to complete and an open world to explore.  The city has a synthwave aesthetic with music that goes with it. There is also a customization screen where you can apply different liveries to your vehicle.

The game also features split-screen for local multiplayer with 2 players on the same keyboard or on separate gamepads.

Initial Wave was made by 3 students from Stadin Ammattiopisto in Finland during fall 2018. The game has later been updated by me with many fixes and optimizations.

Note: I do not condone for this game to be re-uploaded or shared on other sites that are not directly linking to the link that this game is hosted on. I will contact you to take it down if you do, thank you.

Cool game. Would appreciate a "restart race" button at the of a race, that takes you to the start of the race. When I lose a race I often forget where the start is so I run around a lot trying to find it.

Ohh yeah good idea! I'm working on a sequel to this game at the moment so when that is released I'll remember to implement it

This looks amazing, even in the browser.
I also like the music, it's quite chill.
I'm a fan of this synthwave style and it is well represented here.

This game is really cool!

It actually works in a browser - unlike the original game !
However, it doesn't support the XB360 4windows controller.

I had to give it some updates to get it working, but I am glad to hear that it's working : ) And it does work with a XB360 controller, but only when you download the .exe. If I figure out a way to get it working in browser as well I will let you know (btw, what operating system are you using?)

Wow really nice game😁😁

Thank you!

I flipped the car in seconds  

Hell yeah. You can just press r to un-flip it or the option in the pause menu

(+1)

I love it! I just wish you can choose different cars and stuff, you know?

Thank you! We might update the game at some point to add additional content, if we get enough requests to do so : )

Neon everywhere, I like it

i had a weird error TypeError: r is undefined

can you also please adapt it for AZERTY users ?

Hello! Honestly, before your comment I had no idea that AZERTY even existed... But sadly implementing a system to change keybinds in-game is too much work. You can either download the build and change the keybinds through the settings of the unity launcher or use "Alt + Shift" to change to QWERTY (from what I read online)

ah okay because the aesthetic of the games is really good and i like it a lot but its just that i may not be able to play it well


What about the suggestions I gave you? Are you able to work with them?

the thing is I have a Mac so I can't download your game either

Ohhh there is a mac build tho, the builds name was "MAC Build" but I forgot to change it to have that icon, whoopsie. You can try it now.

Hello! I tried fixing the issue and gave the game an update, could you try it out and tell if it works or not?

(1 edit)

Game isn't detecting any input on controller or keyboard...

Hello! I tried fixing the issue and gave the game an update, could you try it out and tell if it works or not?
Also, are you even able to run the game on a Chromebook? Since it's a quite demanding 3D-game

(+2)

Yes it works on chrome thank you for fixing this game :)  just laggs for a bit but its very enjoyable thanks Alex

You're welcome : )

Working really well, yes, it runs really well on Chromebook, it is quite demanding, but the Chromebook has alot of optimization

I could probably run a couple of Steam games on here if I wanted to.

Really happy to hear that it works! I can try making a worse looking version for Chrome so it runs better. Because even tho I can run it perfectly through the build, it lags alot in Chrome.

The game isn't detecting my input and there's no controls screen, I can't move in neither single player or split screen.

The controls are wasd and space for nitro. The game wasn't thought out perfectly, so the accessibility isn't the best.
