This is a racing game idea that I have with no cars, no motorcycles or bikes, planes and boats, just pure leg power, alien leg power.
Somewhere in the big universe an alien collector/hunter is searching a near galaxy for his next trophy. His ship crushes on a planet along with his cargo filled with alien creatures from all over the universe. The crash alerts some small inhabitants that go to investigate the crash sight.
These inhabitants are gooey with big ‘brains’ but no legs. When they find the aliens from the cargo and sea that they have legs, they take control of them with their mind controlling powers.
All is fun and great, they run all over the place, jump, climb,, but things go crazy when they start fighting on who has the fastest and greatest beasts with legs. It becomes a total chaos.
To settle this down the elder chief starts a race that will take them all over the planet so they can prove each other.
The riders (gooey creature) are customizable in color, helmet, and personality which will influence the relation with the beast that means an aggressive rider will not have the same ride as a joyful rider will have with his beast.
The beasts are upgradable – they can be mutated to be faster, bigger, stronger, powerful and armed. This will be done by feeding the beast special food that is found along the way. Besides running the beast can jump, climb and attack.
The race – although it can have the option for classic lap race, the story will focus on a straight race with checkpoints. There will be multiple roots to reach the checkpoint and explore the diverse planet.
