This is extremely early WIP, so expect bad stuff!

This is currently a performance test to see what is possible to achieve in WebGL. The goal is to make it playable with all the graphics I intend to put in, hopefully at a stable 60 fps on most machines, including mid-range laptops. 

Should you encounter freezes or hiccups, it's mostly due to the GPU-instancing in WebGL. Workarounds and fixes are on their way.

How to controle

  • Left pad stick or AD to turn
  • Shoulder buttons R1 and L1 or WS for speed
  • Right pad stick or IJKL controls camera
  • Analogue triggers (are RIP?) or WS for car speed
  • D-pad controls turret direction
  • X on pad or E on keyboard enters and leaves cars
  • B on pad or spacebar for jump or handbrake
  • A fires turret inside car
  • Select on pad or C on keyboard for camera distance
  • Right stick button or Z on keyboard resets camera position
  • X on pad or F on keyboard for headlights toggle
  • Y on pad or R on keyboard to reset car position
  • A on pad or E on keyboard for random musings until they run out

the car start up seems to stutter every time the page loads but after that its fine. if it helps i play most open world games at medium to low quality for about 50-60 fps. by the way the love this visual style beyond the low poly style.

I guess I can hold off starting the game until the shaders have warmed up and all objects have been allocated in memory. I have the same problem too. I just have to be clever with this to avoid a too long startup time. ;w;

The ragdoll on people you drive over are fun. It also runs pretty good. Perhaps you can add some sound though.

Sounds will come! Also ragdolls are extremely complex even though they don't look like it. I am happy they perform well. :3

Great to see you working on this. I love the aesthetic. Missing content but it's the best shrub flattening simulator I've played. Car is a bit squirrelly but I got it going 190-ish MPH... I think. The speedometer is hard to read. Either way keep up the progress! :D

Oh, my, I didn't expect comments on this. ;w;

I have come a considerable long way since this prototype now. The next update will be very different!

I agree with you about the aesthetic. Low poly is cool. I'd love a GTA type city too. Fantastic animations.

Thank you. ;w; I am trying to make a large map with cities for this as we type. The biggest challenge is the character controller which involves an active ragdoll. Once I have that in place I can generate a test city and put out a new update.

Cool! I'm excited!

I hope it will be worth it. :3
