Can't have an off-road game without bumps.

Working on spin attacks. It's time to try out some combat in the game.

Just a couple of ramps causin' trouble.

An idea for some ramp enemies. They'd move in alternating directions (forward and back again), and the challenge would be to use them to ramp over an obstacle like a water pit.

My Dad sent me this photo of two slot cars we painted and raced when I was little, so I made the wheels of these ramp enemies orange as a reference. Look at that transparent neon controller!

A slot car set from my childhood with a very cool controller.

Today I made my own depth hack thing to determine the draw order of some 2d triangles so they look like a 3D model. I'm sure there's a much better way to do it, but I'm proud of it.

This doesn't look like much, but it took me a long time and I'm excited about it :) I'm rendering the 3D shape to a texture now so it will look more like a sprite.

The fruits of my labor! Having a good time making effects. I'm using the above shape tilted at the right angle to make the yellow and white boost blasts below. I need to get actual 3D models imported from Blender next.
