DrawAndRace lets you transform 2D artwork into your own 3D racing game. It’s a piece of software for Mac and PC that allows you to create your own racetracks, make new vehicles and then race around your creation. This kickstarter will improve the software by allowing you to place buildings and other 3D objects around your track.
Step 1 - Create your own Racetrack
Draw a racetrack using pencil and paper, make it 3D using DrawAndRace and start racing! Watch the video below to see how easy it is to make your own 3D racetrack.
Step 2 - Create your own 3D vehicles
DrawAndRace lets you create your own vehicles and other 3D objects. Simply sketch your vehicle on paper and make it 3D with the inbuilt editor.
Step 3 - Make your own game
You can either use DrawAndRace as standalone software to make your own mini racing game, or you can get hold of the C++/OpenGL source code for Mac and PC and morph it into whatever you like. Pledge now to get the software and the full source code.
DrawAndRace3 will have a new editor that lets you place buildings and other 3D models around your racetrack. You’ll be able to choose the position and orientation of each model with a single click and drag of the mouse. You’ll be able to make spectacular 3D scenes from your own 2D artwork.
DrawAndRace3 is great if you’re interested in creating your own racing game. For just £5 you can get the beta version of the software for Mac and PC. For just £9, you can get the full source code that you can use for any purpose. And starting from £29, you can get original hand-drawn artwork by R D Merrifield, the author of DrawAndRace 1, 2 and 3.
Risks and challenges
This is the 3rd DrawAndRace Kickstarter project. The first was completed in December 2013 and allowed you to create 3D racetracks from hand-drawn sketches. The second was completed in December 2014 and allowed you to create vehicles and other 3D models. With 2 succesful kickstarter projects completed, things are looking good for DrawAndRace3!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
