Hex Rally Racers is a magical multiplayer arcade racing game for PC. Race as witches on flying brooms through spellbinding worlds to become the fastest witch in the land. Play with up to three friends at once in four-player split-screen, or race against up to seven AI racers for non-stop spell-slinging action! During the race, players can pick up ingredients on the track to craft unique spells that can be used as traps, boosts, or projectiles to leave other witches in the dust.
A unique part of Hex Rally Racers is our hex-crafting mechanic. While most racing games give players a random item, Players in Hex Rally Racers can choose a broom with access to the items they like the most, and seek out specific ingredients during the race to create the perfect item to win the race!
Hex Rally Racers was developed from concept to final project over three months by a 60 person team. During that time, we developed six polished racetracks in three unique magical environments, four varied brooms (karts), eight custom outfits for characters, and ten different battle items used in race. Our level design team learned to efficiently make quality racetracks using MRT (Modular Road Tool), as well as great competence in Unreal Engine. Our software development team made great strides in learning and developing AI, as well as making a robust physics system that supported our flying, swooping brooms. Our art team developed beautiful 2D and 3D assets: everything from the ground, sky, trees, buildings, and lakes in the world to the brooms, witches, and the cloaks they wear.
