Earlier this year I started making a 2D racing game called Grand Prix Hero. It was going to be a game where you could race F1 cars from the 1960’s around classic tracks. I drew some 2d cars (as shown in the picture), created a functional yet basic track editor and got the computer cars moving from point to point around a Monza-based circuit. I was excited about making a F1 based 2D racing game. ..
But, like all of my post-January games this year, I found it hard to get back into programming the game after time away from the game, and eventually my interest and motivation for the game died.
However, with the difficulty I had in trying to create a 3D racing game (and being a team of one), I’ve decided to create the original game that I wanted to make, Grand Prix Hero.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to release this 2D racing game for Android, Windows and Linux.
