Indie hoverbike racing adventure Desert Child Races Onto Consoles and PC on December 11
Akupara Games and Oscar Brittain have announce the launch date of their highly anticipated hoverbike racing adventure, Desert Child, coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam as a digital download on December 11, 2018, and to Xbox One on December 12, 2018, and will retail for $11.99.
Inspired by Cowboy Bebop, Akira and Redline and done with a very unique pixel art color palate, Desert Child was a hit at last weekends Day Of The Devs event.
Day Of The Devs was my first hands on of the game and it controlled excellent and I was very impressed by the very matte like approach to the art style. In a world where get a new pixel art game everyday, Desert Child has found a way to stand out. Game creator Oscar Brittain may be a bit delusional as he calls himself the Prime Minister of Australia in the launch trailer. However this may be just some wishful thinking and if the game is a success who knows how far he will go.
In Desert Child you are broke, but talented, hoverbike racer who needs to find a way off Earth to get to Mars to compete in the Grand Prix, the greatest race in the universe. Explore a vibrant pixel-art solar system in this stylized racing adventure flavored with colorful sidequests, fierce hoverbike competitions, and a chill, lo-fi hip-hop soundtrack. This may all be some soft of allegory for Oscar Brittain’s journey as a game dev. Any struggling game dev can understand having to live off cheap ramen which is a component of the game
