48h Studio's first game, Avoid - Sensory Overload, has recently received a big update that adds about 33% of new content!
For everybody that doesn't know what our game is:

Avoid is a fast-paced arcade game that will test your reflexes. Drive your vehicle through an obstacle-filled course and try to go as far as you can. Grab bonus items to help you survive... just a little bit more. Climb up the online leaderboard and show the world who's best! Are your fingers fast enough?


As you can see from the trailer it's mostly about dodging stuff and not dying Smiley

There are 2 game modes: predetermined levels, in which you have to reach the end line, and a randomly generated endless challenge, where you have to survive as long as possible at an ever increasing speed.

The content is split between 4 different "themes", each with its own graphical and musical style, as well as different kinds of obstacles, powerups and sets of levels to complete.
There are 4 difficulty settings, ranging from easy (for beginners) to extreme (and we mean it!), so everybody can compete on the leaderboards and have fun.

Avoid - Sensory Overload is currently available on Steam (for Windows PC), the Mac App Store (for Mac OS X), the iTunes store (for iOS) and Google Play (for Android).

You can listen to a preview of the soundtrack on the SoundCloud page of our composer.

Comments, questions and constructive criticism are welcome Smiley

Great to hear, I'm a huge fan of this game. It managed to be hard (at least on extreme mode), but to the point where you don't feel like you're in with a shot of getting a better score.

Unfortunately after parting ways with our ex-publisher we had to rerelease the mobile and Mac versions of the game on our own.
To allow every owner of the previous one to upgrade we decided to make it available for free for a few weeks.
The Steam PC version is unaffected.

The new download links are:

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id924471578
Mac: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id925258575
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.studio48h.avoidso

Sorry for the inconvenience and please download the new version to get future updates!

Oh, and we also released an enhanced version of our SpeccyJam entry, Avoid ZX, for iOS and Android.
Basically it's a Spectrum version of Avoid, with retro graphics and 1-bit soundtrack. The new version comes with multiple difficulties, a new powerup, a new audio track and online leaderboards.
You can try the old version for free on the SpeccyJam page linked above or on our website (desktop browsers only, as it uses the Unity Web Plugin).

Avoid ZX for iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id929529504
For Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.studio48h.avoidzx
