Riders, community based race game


Hello everybody, I’m very glad to present you today our racing game, we’ve planned to develop already since a long time and now headed over to UE4 . But first of all, who are we?
We’re small project group called Game Twice, who plans to develop community based games.
The team contains right now Programmer, 3D artists, Level Designer.
Most of our project members are students, who likes to develop their own games in the future, including this one… Riders.

What is Riders?
Riders will be an open world racing game developed from the community for the community.
Our goal is it to create a big open world racing game, which is based on the feedback and ideas of the players.
We have already done some research on the internet and wrote down many ideas, these we will integrate into the game later.
The game includes a singleplayer mode which contains a long and exciting story, but besides the singlplayer we want of course connect the players with a multiplayer mode.
In the multiplayer you will have different opportunities, it’s up to you if you just drive around with your friends in a big open world and join illegal street races where you face other racers.
Or if you play a more story based multiplayer, where you can drive among with your friends and challenge other top racer within a story mode.
Another one big feature will be that the game is very dynamic, what means that the race behaviour changes depending on the daytime or the weather.

Because of the size of this project and the passion we want to put into the project, we’ve planned a long developing time to finish the game. In the future we want to release the game and head it over to a bigger publisher. But to achieve the result what the players want and what we want, we need help… your help.

-The game will contain a singleplayer mode, multiplayer mode with multiple sub modes.
-A realistic looking open world with different zones (City,Forest,Snowy Mountains…)
-Dynamic system (Weather,Daytime)
-Car customizing with a lot of customizing possibilities
-Many official car brands
-Interesting, long and exciting story
-New game modes

These are only a few of the already planned features, and the list still grows.

I have worked on a racing game at Eden Games and will again this summer, and I can tell you that you won’t have official car brands unless you pay a looooooot of money. Plus, dealing with car brands is full time job.

But at least the project is ambitious, may be a bit too much. Building an open world means a lot of things wheter it be in design or in tech. You might need to set a smaller scope to have more reachable objectives and empower you project’s quality.

I might be interested by the project but i don’t understand what are you unique selling points, what makes you different from Test Drive Unlimited, Forza Horizon 2 or the Crew for example?

We’re still looking for more people.

best regards

We had a busy schedule in the last period of time(school,work…) , but we’re back now and working heavily on the game again. We’re still recruting more people, if you’re interested just PM me or add me in Skype etc.

best regards

Hello everybody, we’re still recruiting more people. We also uploaded a new video on the Youtube channel and some new screenshots as well, more coming soon.

Up to the top. We’re still recruiting.

best regards

Stay tuned, soon we will release more screenshots. We are still recruting people for the project.

best regards
