Welcome to the future of driving! This game explores the concept of smart roads, putting you in the driving seat of a trip into the future.
Inspired by the fascinating story of smart roads, we wondered what it would be like to drive on such a surface that glowed in the dark. In GlowRacer, below, it’s 2013 and you need to swerve left and right to drive as long as possible, avoiding the other vehicles and collect the bonuses — especially the batteries to keep your car connected to the smart road. When your battery drops to zero, the road switches off. You can also save battery power by switching it off yourself (space is on/off). See how long you can drive for!
This game took us about 4 days to make. It was first featured on Wired.co.uk – click here for more information on GameTheNews and Wired’s collaborations on newsgames, created to inspire debate and raise awareness.
