Kinetic Edge, a physics-based racer with eye-popping Tron-like neon visuals from Seacorp Technologies is coming to PC via Steam on February 5, 2021, for $12.99. While controlling a variety of shapes and objects (yes, from neon balls to tube or dodecahedrons), you and other players have to compete in multiple challenges through colorful arenas. When it’s released, the game will already include several game modes:
- Kinetic Race: Race with friends or against random players online to get the best time.
- Kinetic Arena: Knockout other players to make them lose points and stay in the green zone for maximum points gain.
- Kinetic Survival: Battle royale kind of deal, where increasingly difficult challenges will knock out players and the one to remain wins.
- Kinetic Golf: A physics-based golf game mode.
- Kinetic Maze: A procedurally generated maze that constantly changes.
- Kinetic Gauntlet: Both for single-player and multi-player, the Gauntlet is a super hard level that will test your abilities to the max where you have to finish it in seven minutes, one life, and no checkpoints. Fortunately for you, it comes with a training mode, complete with multiple checkpoints and a slower pace for you to practice before challenging the real deal.
If that’s not enough, Seacorp Technologies has said that you can expect more modes to be added to Kinetic Edge in the months ahead.
Seacorp Technologies founder Richard Seabrook describes this game as “crazy golf meets Tron“. And believes that Kinetic Edge is the perfect game to play while taking a break from “big-budget, open-world epics” for some pure, arcade-style fun. Either alone or with like-minded gamers as well.
Kinetic Edge is a compendium of different games but, in truth, all have the same core: It’s like crazy golf meets Tron. The game finds that brilliant sweet spot between being a perfect package of fun for those wanting to play with their friends, but also serving as an addictive set of challenges for single players as well.”
