Bullettime Racing


Games

Overview

Bullet Time Racing (short BTR) is a evolutionary racing game. An iterative track system allows you to start new tracks, upload them and share them with the community. But be aware: The tracks will change as other players drive them. The more iterations, the better and faster the tracks will be!

Be creative – together

You start with a landscape without any streets and as you are the first you define a small path as you drive. After a few iterations there will be a small road. After more iterations there will be houses. At the end there will be cities, jumps, powerups, highways and much more! You define the future!

Smooth gameplay

You are the master of your car. If you want to drift, then do it! No need for brakes! Race as fast as you can to get the winner of the iteration and submit your changes of the track!

Customize everything

Unlock new cars, skins, parts, tracks, elements, colors, powerups, esthetics and much more! Customize your car, improve the tracks as you want it and show your stuff to other players by displaying it in your profile.

Unlimited content

You want to drive through midages? Then do it! You like space? Then create a map on the moon! Every environment has its own difficulties and play styles.

Play where you want

Log in where you want with the device you want. Start playing on your tablet and continue playing on the PC or your Mac. All your progress is synched in our cloud. Don’t lose your progress anymore!

Highlights

  • Cross Plattform!
  • Simple but challenging car physics!
  • Create tracks by driving them! Endless improvements!
  • Customize your car, unlock new parts and adopt to different tracks!
  • Indefinite number of tracks!

Let’s finish an old idea!


Games | Updates

We spent  more than 700 hours in the last four weeks to create a completely new game design. The idea of the game was already created in our Bachelor phase in August 2012 and now it was the right time to write it down. Hopefully we succeed and get funded by the FilmFernsehFonds Bayern. We have had some pretty original ideas and did a lot of research. We enjoyed the work on a new game design and hope that we can start the preproduction with the help of FFF Bayern very soon.

Game Connection 2012


Updates

Last week we visited the Game Connection 2012 in Paris.

The FFF Bavaria supported the event and sent Dr. Michaela Haberlander on the journey with us. Our friends from Mimimi Productions have managed to gather 15 different developers from Bavaria to represent the State and also created the new label Games Bavaria (http://www.games-bavaria.com/).

We met a lot of interesting people and were able to pitch our projects to 30 different publishers. Now we manage all those “Follow Ups” and hope that some of them will lead us into a glorious future.

This was a great ending for 2012. Lets get ready for 2013.

Welcome


Updates

Welcome to our new online presentation!

You can visit the projects overview and download some of them for free or you can take a look at our team. There is also a cool timeline which shows everything we have done in a cool way.

We currently are seeking for a publishing deal for our latest project “Submerge” so if you are a publisher and interested please contact us!

Submerge Tournament at Gamescom sponsored by Unity Technologies, Razer and Desura


Games | Submerge

The tournament will be hosted at the booth of the Mediadesign Hochschule (Number E044 in hall 10.1), every day from 15th to 19th August at 2pm.

Anyone can join the server and play Submerge. At 4 pm the prizes from Unity, Razer and Desura will be handed out.

Also in the booth are 17 other innovative new games from other teams of the Mediadesign Hochschule. For example “Tink” will be displayed, a Unity Project which was chosen for “Best Project 2012” at Game Connection Europe. Aesir Interactive also plans to turn into a games developer so if you want to support a creative and dedicated new team or just want to play one of these games hit us up at booth E044 in hall 10.1! Aesir Interactive is grateful for the sponsored prizes from Unity Technologies and would like to thank the people from Unity for their great cooperation.

Producer Wolfgang Emmer said: “We began developing with Unity in December 2010 – the development platform allowed us to quickly build a prototype, test innovative new gameplay mechanics as well as being an intuitive functional tool for new members of the team”

Tech Lead: Lukas Lang said: “With only three programmers and one UI designer, we needed to find a functional easy to use engine to work with. By writing our own Editor scripts we could easily expand Unity so everybody in the team could work as efficiently as possible. Unity’s “GameObject/Component” model is so great that we used a similar architecture for our own server also written in C#/Mono.”
