         Tachyon Rider is a VR retro cyber-racer with themes of action and adventure existing during the Tachyon Era. Mankind has surpassed the slow and monotonous lifestyle, so turn up the music and put that pedal to the Tachyon metal as you glide across the cyberscape. Fancy some competition and danger? Visit the Retro City Arena to participate in a variety of exciting and immersive game modes!      

 Everybody has a place in the world of Tachyon Rider, but only the fearless few make it to the top...  

  • Retro City: The large and immersive city of the future, Capital of the Tachyon Era
  • 3 In depth game modes: Prism, Highway121, Neon Cup
  • Retro City Side Quests
  • 3 Customizable vehicles
  • Interact-able NPCs and voiced characters
  • Win currency from each game mode used to spend in Retro City
  • Purchase a variety of upgrades and abilities 

                The creation of Tachyon Rider is currently a solo project. Funding will allow for unique, high quality music to better immerse the player into the Tachyon world. Every aspect of Tachyon Rider will feel exciting and new with plenty of character to set it aside from your regular VR experience. Funding also enables more time and dedication to be administered into the project as well as hiring help where needed. Completion of stretch goals will provide the funding for a bigger and more immersive experience, more game modes, and even the possibility to invite your friends for the ride!

Planned platforms include:

 Oculus Rift/Rift S/Quest/Vive

With funding/demand: Index/PSVR 

 2019 Q1 - Campaign/Development 

 2019 Q2-Q3 - Music/Development

 2019 Q4 - Polish

 2020 Q1 - Release!

 Tachyon Rider is being developed inside the Unreal Engine along side Blender for high resolution assets and textures and an overall high quality experience

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge will be completing the project according to the timeline, but with funding the risks will be greatly minimized as it will allow for more time, dedication and quality of content. Tachyon Rider will also need to pass the Oculus Quest Concept Approval Process for Quest support. As an avid gamer and developer, I have no plans to release an unfinished/unpolished game. My goal is to present the best experience for my backers upon release which includes updates and communication along the way. Tachyon Rider will be completed, though the release date is subject to change.
