2020 Racing Games

Doodle Derby Launches On Steam Today, On Switch Next Week


Publisher Headup and developer Studio Erikson tasked themselves with the project of building “the least realistic car game ever.” A tall order considering what’s already out there, but their finished product, Doodle Derby, is a good candidate for the debate.

Most racing games give you a goal and the car to get there…most of them DON’T make you build the entire track before you do so. Doodle Derby does, and the task is never easy. Make a 2D track of slopes, loop-the-loops and all sorts of crazy obstacles to bounce off of, and you just might ricochet to the finish. If you’re feeling extra devilish, try the multiplayer mode — build the craziest track ever and challenge your friends to complete it…then see if they’re still your friends.

  • A challenging single player campaign
  • Insane online and local multiplayer for up to 4 players
  • Race and build the most epic and insane levels until you make it
  • The Doodle Derby level editor: Design your own levels, then challenge your friends to survive them
  • Monster Apes! Rockets! Piranhas! UFOs! About 40 track parts and 60 million (unverified!) combinations
  • Groovy soundtrack
  • Lots of secrets to explore. Unlocking new cars, obstacles and levels!
  • Destructible environment incl. strawberries and other fruit
  • Background art so wicked only kids could have drawn it – which they did!

Doodle Derby is available now on Steam. A version for Nintendo Switch will hit the eShop on September 11.
