A downloadable Super Pilot for Windows
Super Pilot is a futuristic racing game that lets you create, edit and share your tracks in the blink of an eye.
Design your own crazy track by adding loops, twists, or making it vertical, upside-down, or whatever you'd like, using our powerful and easy-to-use track editor.
Then start a race on your own creation to compete against your friends in split-screen, or up to 50 AIs, in a high speed, high adrenaline competition. No physics simulation, no weapons - just master the boost, the drift, and the extreme speed of your ship through impossible loops and turns.
Or just play on the pre-made tracks and simply enjoy the thrill of high speed, no gravity racing!
The game is still in development and this version is an early demo to showcase the core features of the game, and put them to the test. We're looking for feedback on the editor and suggestions on how to improve its usability, as well as general impressions on the racing controls.

Is there the possibility to have an ingame ship builder as well?
Are you making a Mac version? :)

Did the project die? :(
ТРЭШ ИГРЫ #7. Super Pilot - КРАСИВАЯ И КРУТАЯ ГОНКА
I appreciate seeing a dev that really cares about their consumers, and takes time to reply to many of their suggestions! Thank you for being so awesome!
It's a great game, especially for a demo, hope to see the full game some day. I would recommend it for anyone who likes racing. Keep up the good work!
Why did you delete the random track option ? Snif, loved it.
Thanks for your feedback!
We changed the game flow a little so you could customize your race after you selected your track and not the other way around. As a result the random track option was removed from the race customization screen. We'll try to find a way to put it back somewhere!
I showed it off in a livestream (starts 32:05) and triggered a bug I'm afraid ^^
nice game :)
configurable controls would be nice
How acctualy play ? I LOVE this gameplay style but rely the left / right arrow are crazy
We improved the keyboard controls in version 0.4.0. The keyboard turn is much more reactive now.
wow this game is awesome. good work.
Pretty cool game, and the track editor is awesome. Keep up the good work.
Awesome and nostalgic Fast paced game! really want to see more of this!
An online multiplayer would be so dope.
A fast-paced racing game with tight controls, great music, and an easy-to-learn level editor? What more can a guy ask for?
Here's my final video until the game gets updated. If I'm going to be honest, I thought that this game wasn't going to be much. I thought it would be a simple racer with a really hard to use editor. And I couldn't have been more wrong. This is one of the best games I've ever found. Its been so fun, the editor is amazing and each race feels fun and different. I can't wait for the full release of the game. And I hope all goes well for you.
Thanks for the kind words and all the videos! Glad to read the game was a good surprise for you. There's more coming, keep an eye on the updates!
I need this game in my life. Reminds me of a PlayStation 2 game I owned forever ago called HSX: HyperSonic Xtreme. It was a Majesco bargain bin game but it took F-Zero-like gameplay and added a fully featured track editor where you could do a lot of crazy stuff. This feels like that, only better with things like tubes and pipes.
You've got a new fan. Keep up the great work!
Happy to get a new fan! And thanks for the reference, I didn't know this game - looks fun! ;) I gotta try and find it.
Hey I loved the demo it was great fun! I really enjoyed the stage builder.
I made a little showcase video which I'll upload on the 26th of april. Don't have many subscribers or views, but just wanted to let you know :)
This is my channel:
Here's my second video on this game. I still had so much fun but I did also learn that I'm not ready for the hard difficulty. I've got my third and last (until the game gets updated) video coming up soon. Hope you enjoy!
I'm so sorry about the spam of about 8 comments saying the same thing. I tried to post one and it said that the servers where down and I should try again later. So I kept trying and it said the same thing. I checked later on to try again and saw that It had posted the same comment like 8 times. I didn't mean to do it, my phone was just being a dick!
OMG. THE MUSIC IS AMAZING.
plays awesome. whats the chance you could make it compatible with a vr headset?
Thanks! We would LOVE to do a VR version, but we'll have to secure more resources before committing to it. It's high up on our wishlist though!
Me parecio increible tu juego espero que sigas asi y que lo termines uncreible este juego lo recomendare
Great game and all, but I beat the hard bot on my first time playing easily..... maybe make it a bit harder?
Video or didnt happen!
You should not change the hard difficulty, but definitly should add a harder difficulty. This game is fairly enjoyable, and allows to play with friends already, so I dunno if it's really useful. Plus, with the editor, the player always have to adapt.
Keep the speed hot ^^
No Mac Version, please Mac Version
Why use a mac?
They are planning to add a mac, a linux and a RV version. The game is not finished yet.
I've just uploaded a video on this game and I must say, IT'S AWESOME! It honestly feels like something a AAA developer would make. I had so much fun so I've recorded a second video and that will be uploaded on the 20th of April. I only had one problem and thats that I got stuck because I drove into a wall and I couldn't reverse or respawn. So I'd suggest for you to add a respawn button. But it still doesn't change the fact that this is an amazing game. And sorry that I said the game is on GameJolt, I've put it in the description that it's on itch.io in bold with a link. Keep up the great work!
Sorry that my voice is really quiet, It's been fixed for the next video
Thanks, this is a great video! Glad you had fun with the game.
And thanks for the suggestion, a respawn button is actually a great idea! (though we'll also have to investigate why you got stuck in the first place ;))
This game is awesome! It's fun to play, I had myself som good laughs playing. Love the fact that you can tilt the ship to make sharp corners.
I hope you make it so that the usermade levels can be shared :D
Plus the artstyle looks so good!
this game looks cool
I like this ! F-zero style racer. I could use some brakes though lol. May you make the crash physics more DRAMATIC. Some special weapons would make it more interesting, like Mario Kart. Looking forward to updates bro
Wow you made the grooviest video of the game so far haha I love it!
To answer your points:
1/ Brakes are for the weak (kidding - you can brake actually but we need to fine-tune it)
2/ Crash physics more DRAMATIC => will do!
3/ Special weapons => we may add more abilities (like the boost) in the future, we'll see!
Overall a great game. Though it is quite confusing, so it would be awesome if you made the ships a bit larger, maybe the slightest bit slower gameplay. The corners are however very confusing and it is really hard to know when exactly you're meant to turn, so with that there are certainly improvements in the controls to be made. Maybe in the future, a larger variety of tracks and give the tracks themes? Make the turns smoother and less confusing, maybe you could add modes?
We are still looking for the right balance between ship size and track width. It has a huge impact on the corners visibility and the overall sense of speed. Definitely something we have to work on!
There will be tons of new tracks when players will be able to upload and share their own tracks directly in the game! Stay tuned...
Regarding new track themes and game modes, this is also on our todo list but will have to wait a bit more since we are just a team of 2 for now.
Anyway, thanks for the great feedback!
