Check Out This Unity-powered Racing Game Inspired By Micro Machines

Turn a mundane domestic setting into a dramatic racing circuit full of hazards and treacherous obstacles once again in this nostalgic top-down Unity-based indie racer called Tiny Tires.

Do you remember the classic Micro Machines series, bringing to life children's games of turning the breakfast table into a risky racing track with food and kitchen utensils? Want to play a cute racing game and swerve at the last minute to avoid crushing into cereal? This charming stylized retro racing game might be for you.

Tiny Tires is a top-down arcade nostalgic racer made by Game Developer and Motion Graphics Designer Jón Kristinsson, heavily inspired by the Micro Machines toy line of miniature vehicles and the series of racing games based on household settings with obstacles in the form of mundane items.

In Tiny Tires you will face a lot of serious traps and obstacles to test your driving skills: correctional fluid drops, coffee stains, rulers, playing cards, dice, and many more. Be careful not to fall off the track.

The game will feature local multiplayer, with up to four players so far according to the developer. You can also customize the color of the cars and choose various tracks: the breakfast kitchen table, the office, and the casino one.
