Description

Metric Racer is a solo-developed stylised sci-fi racer that was released winter 2021 through Steam Early Access for Windows and Linux. There are multiple levels and comes with an integrated Track Editor, Splitscreen Multiplayer and Steam Workshop support.

As it is still in Early Access, there's still a number of improvements and concepts I'm still expanding on. It currently does have split screen multiplayer, but the next big feature I'm tackling is networked multiplayer which a number of people here have requested.

RACE AND COMPETE ACROSS THE INNER COLONIES

Race through future cities and across the surface of alien planets to out run, out maneuver and out pace your competition. Race through orbital platforms or across terrforming planes through multiple game modes; from Tournements and Time Trials and Survival. Achieve your victory on your own, or compete with your friends Online or through Split Screen Multiplayer!

BUILD YOUR REP, BUILD YOUR SHIP

Every win adds to your Reputation, and to your potential. Customise and upgrade your Racer to be the fastest in the system, from engines to livery, your racer is yours to shape. When you're ready, Show off your upgraded racer and crush the competition on Online!

CREATE YOUR OWN TRACKS AND WORLDS

Unleash your creativity and build your own set of tracks using all of the same tools and pieces that are used to create MetricRacer. Upload them to Steam Workshop and share them with your friends!
