CSC 7 - Apex Racing : Sunrise
The latest installment of “Apex Racing” is being developed by American game studio "Speedco”. The crew is working day and night on the new title, because a lot is on the line: their publisher ,“Digital Creations,” is putting on the pressure. The last game in the series, “Apex Racing: Destruction” not only sold poorly, but disappointed a lot of fans.
So not only did they have to let go a lot of their department, their publisher is also giving them less budget to work with. And with all the stress of demanding fans, investors, and even the own staff, the studio forgot the most important thing in a racing game: the cars.
With the new problem on their hands and a closing deadline coming, the team reconvened for an emergency meeting. Moving the deadline is a no go and hiring new 3D artists would also take too long. After many thrown whiteboard markers and cups of coffee, the social media team had an idea: host a contest.
People could send in their models and designs and if they’re good enough they could be used in the final game! The prize for first position was also quickly agreed on:
First place will be the cover car of Apex Racing: Sunrise.
They will also get a fan package and a pre-release copy of the game
As for the game itself, “Apex Racing: Sunrise” is an arcade racer set in the not so distant future of 2030. The driving physics are fast-paced, where timing your drifts is crucial for success. The player will be able, for the first time ever, to fully explore the city of “Sunrise City” and race through the packed downtown, race down the long highways at the beach, or drift in the windy mountain passes.
The game also features a new dynamic weather and time system, meaning that convertible cars can drop their roof when the weather is nice. Cars also should take advantage of the new lighting engine, so neons and such are welcome.
Cars will be put into different classes from low “One Star ★” class, which will mostly be filled with starter hatchbacks and coupes, up to “Five Star ★★★★★” Which will feature the fastest and most ludicrous vehicles to be obtained in game.
To be able to get into the pool for the main prize, the car need to be a four star car (Modern Muscle/ Supercar / High performance 2-4 doors), a five star (Hypercars) or a Special car (Weird special cars: Vans with Rocket Boosters for example or cars with other special gameplay features).
- Trim year must be 2020
- Cars should not relate to any Automation lore companies (Brands will be given by the team)
- Performance doesnt matter. The devs will balance the cars themself
- Stable or OB (Please tell me which one you used)
Help and Suggestions
- The cars should look fast and over the top. Your daily commuter wont cut it.
- Even though this is a future fiction scenario the cars should be at least somewhat realistic
- You can enter every body you want. But hatchbacks, MPV, SUV’s and Van will have a hard time outside the Special category
The team is looking mainly for cars in the 3 top categories.
Underneath will be examples for those:
4 Star Class (Modern Muscle cars / Sportcars / High Performance 2-4 Doors)
5 Star Class (Hypercars)
Deadline will be the 5th of May 11:59pm UTC+1
