Racecraft is the new racing experience by Vae Victis Games, a sandbox driving game based on procedural technology, where you can create an endless number of realistic racetracks and craft your car to achieve the best performances in all the races and events.
With its original approach and innovative set of features, Racecraft aims to be a really fresh product in the racing games arena.
Racecraft: a Procedural Sandbox Racing Experience.
A proprietary procedural engine, called Camilla, generates an endless number of tracks. They can be saved and shared, producing lots of different racing situations. For the first time in the racing game category, the look and feel of the generated tracks is really similar to the real-world circuits.
Players can craft the car from scratch using (and crafting) all the different parts to generate many different sets of physical features and car setups. Players will also be able to craft their own tracks with a track editor using the same logics of the Camilla procedural engine. All events can also be defined by players: they can choose tracks, rules, cars or simply invite friends sharing the event on the different social networks.
Racecraft has been developed with VR in mind. The driving menu allows interaction with the cars during the races without losing focus. The entire game UI is usable without taking your hands off the wheel or joypad. This system is called SixInput, for steering wheel users, seats and/or a VR headset. The game also implements voice commands and a “virtual track engineer” who will help the driver improving his racing experience by talking about tracks, setup, strategy, race status, car status and so on.
There will be different roles in the multiplayer mode of Racecraft. A team will be composed by several cooperative roles: driver, team manager, track engineer, mechanic, car designer and many others.
