Here is an overview of the game:

You’re broke, you’re hungry, and your only friends are a vintage hoverbike and a bowl of ramen noodles.

In Desert Child, you are a young and talented hoverbike racer who needs to figure out how you can scrape enough cash together through racing and odd jobs to punch your one way ticket to the Red Planet to enter the biggest race in the universe, the Grand Prix.

Story:

The world as we know it is slowly starting to become inhabitable, and many people on Earth have moved to Mars for a better quality of life, thanks to a government subsidy that assisted in relocating citizens by providing affordable passage. After several years of running this program, the government announces that in two weeks, tickets to Mars would go up in price, making the exodus to the Red Planet unobtainable for regular citizens.

You’ll deliver pizzas, collect gun parts, hunt bounties, and make some some fans along the way. In between races, you’ll explore colorful cities where you can repair and upgrade your bike, dine on the local cuisine, and fight your way through gangsters, bounty hunters, and all sorts of interesting characters, just so that you can have a decent meal and keep your bike running.

Key Features:

  • Hunt bounties, deliver pizzas, throw races – do anything you can to earn cash.
  • Explore a pixel-art solar system inspired by Cowboy BebopAkira and Redline.
  • Customize your beloved bike with Guns, Amplifiers and shameless advertising.
  • Dine on a range of interplanetary cuisine with sweet buffs to help you win.
  • Master deep combat and racing mechanics and define your own style.
  • Race, shoot, and get better! Designed for replayability, with secrets that keep you coming back.
  • Chill to a original lo-fi hip-hop soundtrack.
  • Challenge your friends through local multiplayer.
