About

Mercury Race is a multiplayer arcade game inspired by racing games like F-Zero and Wipeout with an original shooting mechanics, that will challenge not only your driving but also your aiming skills.

This is exactly what makes Mercury Race unique. We think the mix of racing and shooting mechanics creates an original and fun game experience. In the year we have been working on the game, finding the perfect balance between the challenge of driving and shooting simultaneously while keeping the essence of racing games has been our main priority.

We have put our greatest effort into this aspect, so we have a full playable demo which has been shown in many gaming events last year. The game has been battle-tested by a lot of people, allowing us to get the feedback and motivation to keep working on the project.

The aesthetics of the game are influenced by the idea of a retro-futuristic world. We have tried to show how the future might be in a far away galaxy but keeping the 80 's vibe we love so much.

Aural Sound, spanish music composition studio, have created an awesome electro/synth-wave soundtrack using real analog synthesizers and drum machines from the 80's.

Mercury Race experience can be enjoyed through 3 different game modes:

  • Arcade: Face the mission of finishing a circuit in time and win the gold, silver or bronze badge.
  • Championship: If you are ready for a real challenge, run as fast as you can to become the king of the galaxy. The countdown starts now!
  • Mercury Arena: One stadium, two ships, only one will survive. It's time for a life or death fight.

The game will be available on Steam (Windows, Linux and OSX) on Q3 2018. We will first release a beta version on early access. We are also working on a VR version, and the experience is simply amazing. We have also planned to publish the game on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and XBOX One, but no release dates are confirmed yet. We will update as soon as we have news about this.

The game is been developed using Unity, so the porting process is being smooth and without issues. The game runs fine on low-spec computers but a dedicated graphics card is recommended for the best visual quality.

The game has been steadily developed for almost a year, and it has its core features implemented. We consider Kickstarter as a good way for us to have a better financial support to add more features and content to the game, and for you, baker, to be part of the community and the creative development process.

Risks and challenges

Although we cannot completely eliminate all potential risks to the project, our prior experience in developing other games for Steam and consoles has prepared us to face the possible challenges that might appear as a small indie company as we are.

At this point in development process, we guarantee the project is going to be finished and released, however if the campaign is successful, it will be quicker for us to add as much content as possible for Mercury Race to become a bigger and better game.
