Enjoy your family-friendly kart-racing styled arcade games? Slide was pretty good from the demo we tried back in September, and it now has a release date. French indie developer Oneiric Worlds announced it's going to release February, 17th 2021 for Linux, macOS and Windows.
In Slide, Animal Race, you can play with up to 8 total players, as you each ride cute and colourful animals in vibrant environments. Jump to avoid obstacles, use bonuses and master the diving mechanics on the crazy tracks to outrun the horde! Or you can just take a tour and enjoy the view, while listening to the sympho-ethnic soundtrack. That's up to you. The game is family-friendly and accessible to beginners and kids thanks to autopilot options; but to win the race, you'll truly have to master all the game mechanics.
Originally developed as a mini-game for their upcoming 3D adventure A Thief's Melody, it ended up growing enough to be considered a game by itself. Both games will share the same world and the same contemplative atmosphere, as well as a focus on animals and nature.
Slide will have local multiplayer and full support of Steam Remote Play with 6 tracks and 6 different playable animals at release.
