ANKI Overdrive, a cool project I did some character design and illustration work for, was released on the weekend. ANKI Overdrive is a modern take on hobby slot car racing, but features cars that race around a modular track that doesn't have any grooves or slots, allowing for much greater freedom of movement. The game also features a "video game-like " aspect, that allows you arm your car with weapons and utilize a host of AI "Commanders", with their own abilities and personas, to drive the vehicles. You can also build your own driver to battle against these AI commanders (the design and illustration work for the "build your own driver" being done by my good friend Nigel Quarless). The control of the cars, and the weapons they have, is done through an app that runs on your phone or tablet. 

When I was kid my older brother had a large collection of slot racing cars and tracks, and I used to love to play with in addition to being a fun project, this one also had a bit of a nostalgic vibe for me.

Anyways, you check more of the game out here, and the the physical cars and tracks are retailing on Amazon, at the Apple Store, Toys R Us, Target, etc. 

Hopefully I'll be able to post more of the work I did for ANKI Overdrive in the future!
