Micro Machines: Mini Challenge Mayhem, the toy car racing and track creation game, starts its tiny engines in Q4 2023 on VR platforms.
Micro Machines come to life in VR thanks to global branded entertainment leader Hasbro in collaboration with WIMO Games’ creative staff of former vice presidents and gaming industry veterans from companies including Electronic Arts, GREE, Zynga, and KingsIsle Entertainment.
Relive the golden days of adolescence, racing Micro Machines around tracks, but using the power of virtual reality to bring otherwise impossible courses, stunts, and speed to life. Utilize simple controls inspired by slot-car racers, where the analog trigger on VR controllers regulates how fast the car goes. Blaze through circuits as quickly as possible, but maintain proper speed around turns to perform stunts at maximum speed.
Build incredible tracks using an incredibly intuitive, easy-to-use system taking advantage of VR controllers to manipulate, switch, and place pieces. Build impossible courses with moving parts, loop-de-loops, and stretches suspended in mid-air, to achieve speeds no toy car has ever reached.
Micro Machines: Mini Challenge Mayhem supports building tracks in Mixed Reality at mind-blowing scope and scale. Build courses that will send cars racing over sofas, under beds, and around sleepy pets. Create portals to send a vehicle racing through a wall in the kitchen, and then fly out of another spot in the living room. Send toy monster trucks crashing through elaborate set pieces, all without any mess or cleanup.
Racing skill and creative course building mesh together in the Campaign mode, where different objectives require choosing the right car and the proper course to get the job done! Some objectives require a fast car and a track built for speed, while others demand a (miniature) monster truck that can rack up destruction points. Modify the circuits and customize cars as necessary to get three stars and earn new vehicles and parts for faster racing and bigger stunts.
“We wanted to craft an experience which brings our most cherished childhood memories to life, taking them from the realm of imagination and into reality, virtual reality,” said Dave Rosen, CEO, WIMO Games. “The fact that we have the official Micro Machines license from Hasbro to lend authenticity to the experience is the cherry on top.”
Micro Machines: Mini Challenge Mayhem releases Q4 2023 on VR platforms to be announced.
