2018 Racing Games

Desert Child Coming To Consoles And PC


Story isn’t something racing games are well-known for. Nor is story an expected or demanded element for a racer. The point of this type of game is to get in a car and speed along as fast as possible — how we get to that scenario is unimportant. The folks behind the upcoming Desert Child, however, have come up with something interesting enough to grab our attention on story alone.

You play as a hoverbike racer in the future. You’re very good at what you do, but you’re also flat broke. Your dream is to compete in the Grand Prix on Mars, but that takes lots of funding. Your quest: work yourself up from your underdog status by taking on race-related jobs that utilize your skills. Earn the money and fame to get to Mars and realize your dream! Desert Child is like the hoverbike version of Rocky.

  • Hunt bounties, deliver pizzas, throw races – do anything you can to earn cash.
  • Explore a pixel-art solar system inspired by Cowboy Bebop, Akira and Redline.
  • Customize your vintage bike with various modifications.
  • Dine on a range of interplanetary cuisine with sweet buffs to help you win.
  • Master deep combat and racing mechanics and define your own style.
  • Race, shoot, and get better! Designed for replayability, with secrets that will keep you coming back.
  • Chill to an original lo-fi/hip-hop soundtrack.

Desert Child will be out for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, XBox One and PC December 11.

In Desert Child you are broke, but talented, hoverbike racer who needs to find a way off Earth to get to Mars to compete in the Grand Prix, the greatest race in the universe. Explore a vibrant pixel-art solar system in this stylized racing adventure flavored with colorful sidequests, fierce hoverbike competitions, and a chill, lo-fi hip-hop soundtrack, all developed by solo developer, Oscar Brittain.
