Based in Glasgow, UK
Yucatan is a fast-paced, fake-mexican, space-punk driving experience. It's a 3D racing game, with metroidvania elements. You unlock abilities and use them to unlock new areas and new tracks. There's a cast of fun characters, and a cool story (bro). But most of all it has amazing handling, exceptional drifting, some serious jumps, and you can drive upside down.
The idea for Yucatan came in a vision, one dark night in 2012. Hairy Heart founder and boss-man, Joe Bain, was tripping out, probably watching your favourtie anime or listening to that band you saw once at that festival. In the midst of a wild fever-dream, the main character, Charlie Skullface, appeared and recited a long game design document, including online multiplayer. As Joe furiously wrote down the long, complicated design document, a postman knocked on the door. The delivery of the rare issue #9 of the 2015 reboot of DC's Omega Men, interrupted the reverie, and the game design, fresh from the skull's lips [skulls don't have lips], was lost in the incoming breeze. Hence there will be no online multiplayer.
Ethan became involved in the project through twitter. He has been producing some outstanding, retro-core lowpoly games and art for years now. He's based in America and is a force of nature, the art side of things is down to him.
Dicky, when he's not rocking out playing TV theme songs to rapturous audiences in Japan (that's actually true, he plays for Dream Themes), puts together awesome tire-squeal sound effects using only a kitchen bin and a roll of brown tape (that's probably not true, I haven't checked). He's based in Bristol, UK.
- No track select menu - one big interconnected world. Characters. Storyline. Motivation. Exposition.
- Pure single player experience - no distractions, it's you v.s. the track.
- Abilities to find and unlock. Hats (maybe).
- Thrilling, low-poly art work, by reknowned 3D artist Ethan Redd.
- Intense punk, grunge and psych rock soundtrack, featuring Thee MVPs, The Castillians, and more.
- An intensely new type of racing game. This isn't your grandma's Forza, and it ain't no Wipeout XXL either.
