The upcoming Formula Retro Racing: World Tour is an arcade-style racing game that takes inspiration from classic racing games of the early 90s. The game features fast-paced gameplay, low poly graphics, a retro soundtrack and high-speed action. The team behind Formula Retro Racing, Repixel8 and CGA Games, have plans to expand the game’s reach by starting a Kickstarter funding campaign.
