Now that the month is half over, I’m officially announcing the “One Game a Month” project for December 2021: Slash Racer. Slash Racer is a vertical scrolling driving game where players maneuver a vehicle on a track while avoiding inexplicably placed obstacles. It is a recreation of one of my earliest game development efforts, way back in the Apple II days. Additional influences on the project are Flappy Bird (yes, I know…) and Spy Hunter.
This is my first Unity project, and as I learn useful things about that engine I will add new Unity tutorials to this site. As always, if you want to follow the project’s progress you can so via any of the following means:
- Follow me on Twitter, where I will tweet any development updates and releases
- Watch the Slash Racer project page on this site, which will be updated with links to new Development Logs
- Star or follow the GitHub project itself, if you want to see evolution of the source code
Slash Racer should be available for download at the start of the new year. Until then, happy racing!
