Welcome to Guts and Glory!

A game in development where ordinary people compete in extraordinary challenges of life and death.  Race to the finish line while everything tries to kill you.  Dodge spinning saw blades, deadly spikes, explosives, turrets, and a growing list of other hazards—while navigating insane tracks set in a wide variety of environments.  A game full of LOLs and WTFs and OMGs, where failing can be just as much fun as winning!

Initial platforms will be Windows, Mac, and Linux.  If it's popular enough, I'll try to port to more systems.  Let's tell the world about Guts and Glory!

Feel free to share these videos and help make this project a success so I can make it bigger and better!!  The more support this project gets, the more awesome we can make it!  (Note: if you post on Reddit, please tag my user name so I can jump in on the convo.  I've been on Imgur a lot lately as well.)



DESCRIPTION

Guts and Glory is a about ordinary people competing in extraordinary challenges of life and death!  Several possible game modes are planned, but the first is a "survival racing experience," which basically means the world's most dangerous obstacle courses, with vehicles.  Players will select from a wide variety of vehicles, including realistic bicycles, poorly built cars, and rocket-powered homemade contraptions.  They’ll race to the finish line dodging all sorts of hazards, including sawblade windmills, giant wrecking balls, medieval cannons and crazy turrets.

Each vehicle is completely physics-driven, with 100% ragdoll riders, realtime dismemberment, and vehicle damage.  This means that every turn, every crash, and every death is unique—and often results in hilarious scenarios!  Severed limbs spray blood all over nearby characters and the environment as you struggle to hang on and reach the finish line.  Vehicles get dented, smashed and lose parts.  Wheels can be popped or just knocked off completely.  Determined players on tough tracks will find themselves hobbling across the finish line bloodied, missing limbs, stuck full of arrows, on a smashed vehicle only one hit away from being incapacitated!

You're the best :D This is the first in a series of videos I'll be posting showing work-in-progress updates of my new video game "Guts and Glory," a survival racing game where you try to reach the finish line as fast as possible while everything tries to kill you!

 

Future Plans

Planned features include:

  • Track Maker (plus share and search functions)
  • Destructible environments/props:  smash through windows, thin walls, fences, crates, signs, vases, etc.
  • AI Characters that wander around, run away screaming, chase you with chainsaws, etc.
  • At least 10 unique vehicles
  • 100 “official” Tracks, spread across 10 different themed Maps
  • Loads of Hazards, Special Items, and maybe even Power-Ups?
  • Time of day system: this means racing at night, evening, or with realtime lighting changes over the course of the race!
  • Steam integration: Leaderboards, Achievements, level sharing, etc.

If this game is popular enough, I plan on building additional Game Modes as well.  I’ll look to fans to point me in the right direction on this one.  Some ideas include:

  • Safety Taxi:  You are Chuck.  You are a taxi/bus driver… except your taxi/bus is just an old pickup truck, painted yellow, with wooden bench seats bolted into the bed.  (Hey, school budgets are really tight!)  Your job is to pickup and deliver passengers to their destinations as quickly as possible—with minimum casualties or collateral damage.
  • Adventure Time:  This game mode would play similar to a 3D platformer adventure game—but in vehicles and totally physics driven.  Would include weapons, power-ups, and epic boss fights.
  • Deathmatch Arena:  Challenge Friends in a battle to the death.  Think Super Mario Kart arenas—but with bloody deaths and dismemberments!
  • I have tons more ideas to add to this list….  The core mechanics of this game create opportunities of a wide variety of entertaining and unique game playing experiences.  If I can implement local/online multiplayer down the road then the possibilities get even more exciting!
Crash testing the third playable character in Guts and Glory: The Yang Family and their "premium" automobile, the Mezooki 700 Series convertible. The Yangs are big fans of classical music, thus the soundtrack for this montage. This game is in early development and subject to change.
LOTS OF NEW STUFF ADDED! I recently finished adding a few more Hazards to the game, including Wrecking Balls and a few more that I will leave for you to discover when you play the game (I don't want to be a spoiler for my own game)!

But I can't do it alone...

I’ve been working on this project in my spare time for the past year.  I am extremely determined to see this game be a huge success and become a long-term favorite in your gaming library.  (Like love it and play it for years!)  I want to add TONS of awesome stuff and keep it growing and evolving for a long time.  I’ve put my blood, sweat and tears into this game.  But I’m just one dude—I NEED YOUR HELP!  Please spread the word about this game.  Tell your friends, share it on social media, tell Let’s Players about it… whatever you can do to get more people excited about this game and support it.  With so much tough competition in the game development world, just letting everyone know and standing out from the crowd can be the hardest part.  But if we can get tons of people excited about this project, we can continue to build it bigger, better and more awesome!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my site and check out this game.  I'll be working on it as hard and fast as I can, and look forward to hearing what you think.  I would love to hear from you!
