Drive Your Car Like Skateboard in This Cartoonish Godot-Powered Race Game

Fábio Fontes shows some progress behind the Buck Up And Drive! sequel.

Too bored with racing games all doing the same old tricks? Take a look at this crazy demo presented by artist and game developer Fábio Fontes, where you can flip your cap like a skateboard and jump on railings.

If this racer looks familiar to you, it's because this is a clip from the Buck Up And Drive! sequel, now in development using Godot. The creator decided to drop GameMaker and add more modes, content, and flair to the game. From what I've seen, you can expect customizable characters and vehicles, cosmetics, dynamic racing, and tons of fun on the roads.

Vans, trucks, busses – there are definitely plenty of cars to drive around colorful environments, complete with cartoonish visual effects.

For now, the game is still in development, but as it's a sequel to Buck Up And Drive!, here are some of the older racer's features (I assume you'll see the same and more when it's out):

  • Endless driving game inspired by arcade classics, with simple yet intense gameplay featuring a total slap in the face of realism. And a kick in the spleen, too!
  • Procedurally generated track with multiple environments to visit, ranging from the somewhat realistic to the completely absurd. GO TO HELL!... literally!
  • Go 1v1 against another player (or a CPU) in a fighting mode. With cars.
  • Customizable car decals through external image files. 
  • Controls for both game modes are 8 directions and one button. Play one-handed, if you want!
