Makes with the working


  • Main mechanic is broken on Linux.
    • Still broken after the patch.
    • Wonder why your boost is so irregular?
    • Because it’s showing painted track where there is none.
  • Does not save resolution settings.
    • This has been resolved.
    • It now defaults to 1080p on the main menu but everything in-game is 2160p.
  • Resets player’s option configurations and save data.
    • Also, resolved.
  • Performance
    • Has yet to dip below 60 @1080 with everything on 11.
    • 30 @ 2160 /w the crusty, old, 980.


  • 60 ferps @ UHD on the 1080ti. Although it better


  • They put out a Patch on Friday which fixed the issues with not saving configs or progress.
  • Yes, this game wouldn’t save progress when it was released.
  • I didn’t have the issue with track painting just happening without having to hit A


Shiny / Sounds


  • If you ever wanted to know what would happen if Borderlands fuc*ed a flying car.
  • Don’t know why but the soundtrack reminds me of SEGA Dreamcast.
  • That, or the late 90’s in general.
  • Each character has one or two lines that they repeat ad nauseum.


  • I keep saying cell shading helps hide a lot of the flaws in a games visuals
  • Soundtrack has wub


  • I can, and – spoilers – will, leverage a lot of criticism at this game
  • But the graphics look nice.
  • Granted, they look nice if you’re just wooshing along.
  • The moment you see any type of animation to or around your ship, that falls flat on its head.
  • The sounds are also on par with generic racing game #26’543’739 the likes of which Steam is infested with.




  • ZErO keyboard / gerbil support.
  • Steam controller works OOTB and things respond accordingly.


  • Played it with the blueteeth paired areola controlla


  • Changing controller layout with Big Picture makes fuckin’ all difference.
  • No rebindable controls
  • No way to change it even by setting a different layout through Steam.
  • No keyboard support
  • Accelerate is R2(RT) and paint is A.
  • For someone without fingers in his right hand, this game was a wrist pain inducing experience.




  • Single player has a few tracks (artificially inflated because they count mirrored and reversed as additional tracks) and some brain-dead AI.
  • Multiplayer is literally nonexistent.
  • I have cross-platform play enabled and will be leaving it in a lobby waiting on players until the prepre super showzen.
    • Scratch that, the Steam conrolla times out after 15 minutes and you guessed it, nobody in the lobby, nada, not a single one.
  • The primary game mechanic “painting the track” is still borked on my end and several others.
  • It seems to be a rendering glitch causing the car to lay paint 24/7 but you can only get boost from the areas you have actually painted.
  • Later in the game boost is required to win and good luck telling what is (and is not) real.
  • No sense of speed and yeah, no speedo.
  • Now for this last part IMA need you to listen to me hard as you can, K?
  • You want $30 for this.
  • Do you know what $30 is?
  • Ten dollars more than fuc*ing Rocket League.
  • That’s what is is Brad, and at the end of the day (take that shot) it’s all that matters.
  • If / when you un-FK this game you might have a fun little derp around racer on your hands.
  • Something that could fall comfortably in the $9.99 price bracket and build a decent community.
  • Seriously whomever decided the pricing on this is incompetent or even worse, malicious.


  • A far as racist games go, this one’s alright
  • That’s really about all I can say
  • Paint the ground, go zoom zoom, slam into walls
  • The AI is dumb enough for me to beat it. Makes me feel smrt
  • Way more dialogue than I expected for a racing game
  • Makes me want to…Race through it
  • Real trailblazing humor right there


  • Playing this game caused me physical pain and forced me to consider that grippy mechanical claw thing that Tim mentioned in last week’s hatemail.
  • I don’t think it would have helped much but maybe it wouldn’t have been such a slap in the face of people like myself, with less than ideal right hands, to have an option to rebind the fuckin’ keys.
  • Remember when I wondered if it’d be to much to ask this game didn’t suck?
  • Well, I think they may have been listening and decided to make it the worst possible game for me, specifically.
  • Also, £30 isn’t the same as $30 US.
  • What the fuck kind of pricing model is that?
