Ever wondered what running at 140mph feels like? FOTONICA is a first-person game about the thrill of speed and traveling flawlessly through complex environments.
FOTONICA is simple, but is not easy: it follows a tradition of arcade games that are easy to pick up and almost impossible to master. A multi-layered level design across eight different tracks, together with a procedural endless mode make for a game that is incredibly deep. Think you can outrun your friends? Try the split-screen versus challenges.
The visuals are a treat for the nostalgic player but also for those hungry for new aesthetics. Every pixel is drawn to convey the maximum sense of speed, an exhilarating journey through light and void.
FOTONICA is a game for PC, MAC and Linux published by Santa Ragione in 2014. We worked on it since its first prototype, back in August 2010. The project was born as an entry for the “A Game By Its Cover” on the TIGsource boards.
FOTONICA was on display at the 54th International Exhibition of Art in Venice, la Biennale di Venezia, and was later Apple's Best of AppStore 2014 for iPhone.
