im in love with this game


Its very fun. I could play it all day, experimenting with track names. My favorite result so far is aceg.

really nice idea, good sounds.Thanks for letting us play :-)

Great game - simple, sleek, fun and addictive. Nailed it!


It’s cool that for subsequent laps you can see where you veered off, and you’ll know to brake more/earlier.

Simple and fun; thanks for sharing. There's an impromtu 'tournament' at the Buried Tresure (buried-treasure.org/) Discord! Seed: Btreasure


Very nice! Love your work. I think this simple mechanic might have potential for becoming the base of an audio game, if you made some cues about the sharpness and distance of the curve ahead.


That's a nice idea. I'll give that some thought, thanks
