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.
