Developer Description: "Pocket Wheels isn't just a racing game, it's an objective-based 3D platformer. Take a seat in various toy cars with special abilities and explore a house full of themed rooms filled with collectibles, objectives and race tracks!"

I'll be honest; I am a total sucker for this art style. I love games that look like this so I can't wait to race around in this world. It doesn't currently have a release date, but it is available to wishlist. I definitely want to race in Pocket Wheels. It just reminds me so much of old school arcade racers or hot wheels racers I played when I was younger.

2D platforming competition racing on foot is the name of the game in Runner Party. We absolutely love the art style of this one and think it looks super fun. It will be launching early access some time in 2022.

Developer Description: "You Suck at Parking™ is the only racing game where your goal is to stop. Colorful yet uphill, challenge the world, and customize your ride in this ever-evolving parking simulator."

"Parking simulator" may sound like the most BORING idea ever, but Happy Volcano is proving that wrong with a crazy over the top chaotic parking racer? It's hard to describe, and watching the trailer is just chaos incarnate. It looks EPIC. I want it. It is TBA 2022.

We couldn't be more enticed by this Tron meets Mario Kart looking racer. The colors and visuals look incredible; It is newly released as of this event, and available to play now!
