Coming Soon to devices near you, a much improved and refined version of:



http://doomlaser.com/bike/

Cool

Originally Fated as Terror Bikes, by Messhof, myself, and Cactus, GIBSON HYPERDRIVE rises from the ashes of a fallen neofuture and arrives, crashing through your doorstep into hyperbole.

Controls are arrows and space.

It's currently hard as fuck and janky like a good Bike Game. Imagine the possibilities.

I know it's hard as fuck at the moment and it's got some test sky particles, but it feels pretty good to me, and people liked this build at Bit Bash. It's come a long way. Originally this was my testbed project for relearning Unity3D after years of writing my own engines or using even more crazily disabled middleware for stuff like Space Barrnacle. I need to get this guy out. Needs some things obviously, but yes. Just wanted to give people a chance to play around with it.

V. Super Hexagon inspired, obviously, but all the core mechanics and instadeath come from messhof's 2009 prototype. I added the world rotation (taken from my game Rotrix) in 2010 at TIGJam: Winnipeg, and have been poking at it ever since. You can see that version in the last shot in this Indie Game: The Movie clip:





Anyway, have fun getting killed. It's hard. My record is over 200 seconds on this test level..

Here's the trailer from when we took the as yet unnamed prototype to BitBash in Chicago last fall. Great event.

ok played for a bit. im terrible, my record is like 10 seconds haha.

anyway, some criticisms:

1. it can be hard to tell whats going on. maybe im just slow but it felt pretty overwheling having to parse the 3d level architecure in combination with those cloud effects in such a short time. i understand the sort of feel you're going for but maybe theres a way to preserve it while making the game a little more manageable? also i personally don't care for the viewpoint. the bike reads as an amorphous black blob at the bottom of the screen to me.

2. idk what the spacebar actually does. it didnt seem to work when i tried pressing it. maybe im missing something. maybe the game needs better feedback in general? a lot of the times i died i didnt really know what happened.

3. it takes way too long to actually "die" once you fall off the track.

the basic aesthetic and gamefeel is neat tho. keep it up!  Smiley

Wow. I feel like I haven't seen anyone use the Marquee tag in about a decade. Crazy.

Anyway, I tried the old version out and it felt really weird not to have keys to rotate (roll) in the air. I kept going off jumps and just falling because I couldn't rotate to stick to a wall that was near me. I guess you just have to think ahead and drive up slopes in preparation to ride on walls in the next section? Or are there roll keys that I wasn't aware of?

Gibson Hyperdrive is a very cool futuristic bike racing game that sees you driving at break neck speeds along super tough procedurally generated floating tracks.

rly fun and addictive! The player needs to see more of the level that is ahead to not unfairly taking a turn that leads to death imo. Also some more possible paths would be nice.

If Super Hexagon was a driving game it would be this game. I made it to 13 seconds and I am proud of that.

Those new screens reassured any fears I had that the art would not improve. Really this is a solid little title. I like the addition of the switches for some doors - not that the game needed to be harder, but it was a nice touch. Because of the grueling difficulty, I wouldn't mind just a little bit tighter control of the ship, but overall I really had a lot of fun with this. Looking forward to where it goes.
