Race for the Red Planet
This is a space ship arcade racing game with gravity-based physics. You will need to accelerate to turn and to overcome gravity of the obstacles. Fly through the checkpoints while avoiding the obstacles to complete a race and then you can try to improve your time, racing against your personal best line/ghost. We're excited to hear how fast people are able to complete the maps!
There is a tutorial in game to introduce you to the controls as well.
W - Accelerate Forward
A - Strafe Left (mouse steering) or Turn Left (keyboard steering)
S - Backup
D - Strafe Right (mouse steering) or Turn Right (keyboard steering)
R - Respawn at the last completed checkpoint
Left Shift - Boost (while you have available boost)
Backspace - Open in-game menu/Pause
Up/Down arrows or W/S when in menu - Select menu item
Enter/Return when in menu - Accept menu selection or toggle selection
To install dependencies:
pip install -r requirements.txt
Running the game
Q: Game Crashes/Freezes
A: On some platforms (such as Linux and maybe Mac), pyglet's audio library crashes while using OpenAL. We've included a setting to be able to play the game with audio off. You should try to toggle the audio in the settings menu in-game to avoid audio causing crashes or freezes
Q: How do I use the menus
A: W/S and Up/Down arrows can change menu options. Enter/Return may be used to select an option or toggle a setting
Q: What controls are best
A: We really liked mouse controls, and found them much easier than keyboard A/D turning controls. However, if you're playing on a trackpad, you'll probably want to go into the settings in-game and change to A/D turning.
Q: I get motion sickness from the camera springiness, is there a solution to that?
