About this project
- Do you dream about owning a super bike?
- Do feel the adrenaline rush in you when you see a fast bike?
- Do you wish to ride a sportbike on an open track?
- Do you enjoy the thrill of bike riding?
If your answer is yes - then this game is just the perfect fit for you. Speed Rush is a bike racing game, where you own a bike and take it to the track and have fun. There is no pressure to win a race. There is competition, but the real crux of the game is more about living your passion for riding a bike. Players won’t be disappointed even if they lose. At the end of the race, the joy of riding a super bike and the adrenaline rush will always bring a smile on your face. And of course what is more satisfying than crossing the finish line in first position, the competition will be fair.
The objective of this game is to create a fun racing experience for casual gamers and bike enthusiasts. The true meaning of the game is to allow you to feel the realistic riding experience of bikes on different tracks – with an aid of free form tours as well as well defined and balanced competition. All of this is achieved keeping YOU – the user at the center by a unique and exclusively personalized game play. Stunning 3d graphics, racing tracks designed from real world references and easy to control sports bikes will ensure that you have maximum fun on the track.

Tracks designed from real world references from across the globe. Also includes mirror tracks.

Awesome realistic 3D Graphics
4 Different Racing Modes
Normal Race:Here 8-10 racers will ride their bikes on a track for 3 laps. Top 3 will be awarded reward points and prize money.
Time Trial:Here the player has to ride alone on the track; a best time will be given to him. Player must finish a lap within that time to win and set a new track record. Here again player will get 3 laps to beat the time. The least amount of time taken to finish a lap will be considered as best time and it will be a new track record.
Check Point Race:Again 8-10 racers will participate in this event. Here it is not necessary for the player to lead the pack. But to win he must cross the checkpoints as fast as he can. There will around 4 to 6 checkpoints on a track. The time between 2 checkpoints will be counted; the average time between all checkpoints must be the best to win this event.
Knock out Race:Here 4-5 racers will participate. In every lap one racer will be knocked out [the one who cross the finish line last]. Player must always stay ahead of at least one opponent to stay in the race and in final lap should beat the final opponent. Over 40 exciting racing events.
Black Racers:Pro Racing Event [Big banner] This is a special event, for which player must earn track reputation and experience to enter. This is a sponsored event where only pro racers can participate. As you progress in the game and increase your experience, you’ll get an exclusive ticket to participate in this elite class event. You also get an access to an exclusive range of 1000cc Bikes, which are specifically tuned for Black Racers. The stakes will be higher in these events if you win.
Apart from the track day events. Player can anytime select his bike and go for a fun free run on the track. He can practice, improve his skills, and learn the track.
Personalized Pit Stop Area
This is will be player’s home. On every track player will have one pit. From here he can view the events happening on that particular track and also see listing of events on other tracks. The pit cabin view will give a completely personalized and interactive experience in realistic 3D view.
Players can fine tune their bikes by adjusting few details: We know bikers want to have a complete hold on the biking configuration. Speed Rush will allow you to adjust following facets of bike according the preferences you like.
- Tires (Soft or Hard tires depending on track wet/dry conditions)
The above modification panel will be very simple and easy to understand for anyone. We also have “Ask Mechanic” option, in case you’re too novice to find out the best fit for your bike. You can ask a virtual Mechanic and your bike will be automatically tuned for the best performance.
Original racy soundtracks to keep the adrenaline rush pumping.
Achievements and XP
The game will feature some really interesting achievements and XP (experience points) to the riders. These achievements and XP will help players earn track reputation and will get you the ticket for Pro Racing Event.
Since you own your own pit stop, your team of experts will keep a record of your performance in every race and on every track. The Pit Stop Cabin will feature a dedicated place that showcases your performance over the time and where you stand at a given point of time.
We're participating in OUYA's #FreeTheGames Fund, created by OUYA to support developers making new and creative console games. OUYA will match your pledge dollar-for-dollar up to your goal amount (and a max of $250,000), so help us get there and make a great game for everyone! To be eligible for this match, we commit that this game will be an OUYA exclusive for a period of time. To learn more about OUYA, go to www.OUYA.tv.
This game will be initially built exclusively for OUYA game console. We’re the creative geeks amongst us. Whatever you see is self funded at present. Though we’ve tasted the success with the games in the past – this particular project is far bigger that those. We are pretty sure that we will be able to accomplish this project with the support of the people who believe in us. KickStarter is a great place to connect with people who we believe will love this idea.
This project will require us to invest a lot in developing this unique idea. The expenses will include buying necessary hardware infrastructure, software licenses, server costs, renting soundtrack recording facilities – and for pizzas and coffee for the team at times :) …The stretched goals will be announced if the project gets over funded. We wish to add more bike models, a complete personalization of Pit Cabins and more challenging levels in future.

Risks and challenges
Developing such a big game is always going to be challenging. We are spending hours into putting every little detail in all the facets of the game. We have already put a lot of detailing in designing tracks and assets of the game.
However, we're not superman. We do face hiccups, rejections and rework. If we miss our internal deadlines, we may face delay in launching the game in time.
If we run out of funds - it may take little more time to accumulate required capital and resources. We look forward to KickStarter audience to support us with this project - and help us complete this game in time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We’re targeting to launch the game by January 2014. The game will be launched on OUYA platform for the first few months of release. We will also launch the game on iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Smartphones within a few months of release.
