Introduction

We are a small indie team based in austria. In the new step of the story, we follow the previous versions of this genre with deep respect and we try to deliver the next title to the category "Top-Down-Arcade-Racing". More similiar games followed in this genre, the years after.

Our dream is: To organize a World Cup, where the finals will be played appropriately in a final at an event with presence and livestream

One of our and our own demands is: With the community, for the community!

Behind the scenes

Idea and the drive

We are continuing this kind of game to keep this genre alive. GeneRacing was born to ensure survival in the “top down arcade racing game” market. The difficulty here is to ensure a balance between “state of the art” and “preservation of the classic components”.

In addition to the well-known cross-game game modes (qualifying, racing, timeattack), the idea will of course not only be continued, but of course expanded.

We integrate an online multiplayer functionality, expand the tactical components, add a special drift-challenge and support the league, competition and tournament modes as well as possible.

Development

The game is primarly developed with C# in Unity, some elements are written in C++ (Plugins and Extensions), some connection elements like our API is written in PHP and C# on the the external side. For all 3d elements primarly Blender is used.

The whole project is managed as an agile scrum project, with agile methodology. We are coding out of a product backlog, decide what will be included in the next sprint backlog to follow a predefined sprint cycle of around 3-4 weeks.
We are using Jira, Asana and Instagantt as project management tool and measuring milestones.

Milestones

Our milestones are roughly defined for the entire project period and follow the ideology of agile project methods.


A rough pre-defined overview looks like that:

  1. Playable alpha state, involve and build the community
  2. Establish marketing, tools and environment for the game (Wiki, Discord, Socialmedia, etc.)
  3. Kickstarter launch to refine the alpha version so that a beta switch is possible. collecting inputs from the community
  4. Prepare steam for early access
  5. Complete the alpha version and focus on beta
  6. Reach 1.000 active players count
  7. Beta release
    1. Expand network, activate cooperation partners for holding championships at events
    2. Extend to other platforms
  8. Reach 5.000 active players count
  9. Full release on Steam

History

A top down arcade racing game which is developed for Windows/Steam. The basic idea was born in 2016 and the development then began in 2019.

Versioning note

Platforms

Microsoft Windows

GeneRacing is originally released for Microsoft Windows in 2019, but it is planned to port it to other platforms. Linux/Mac builds should follow if the first beta phase for Windows is reached.

Steam

Steam is used as a cloud platform to publish the game and handle the version management of the game. Steam is also a good option to share screenshots, use a leaderboard and include an trading system.

Market and Marketing

Sales and distribution

GeneRacing is advertised on Twitter, Facebook, Google, in print media, Youtube, Steam, in-game advertising, Twich and via curators and streamers. A Kickstarter launch has been prepared and is waiting to go live.

At the moment 2 curators are under contract which are waiting for start.

Curation

GeneRacing is in two different curation programs registered and waiting for curators

Streaming

Of course, everyone is invited to expand the reach of GeneRacing by creating YouTube videos, commenting on the game, and testing it. It is possible even during Alpha, but only allowed by following a very simple set of rules.
If you are interested in streaming the game or giving an insight into the game on Youtube, please contact a moderator or admin of GeneRacing. The fastest way to do this is via our Discord server, where all messages are read and answered within a few hours.
