I’ve published a few updates for Pixel Driver without updating the blog again, sorry just too busy with the gamedev stuff.
v0.8.0 brought a whole new style to the game using outlines around objects creates a more distinct and cartoon style.
Clouds has also been added to the game to give it a more organic feel.
The AI in the game has also learnt to overtake slower cars and also does a better job at breaking for objects. Speaking of objects now there are obstacles that occur after a while which blocks the road.
