WARNING: the game can take few minutes to load, sorry :(

The sound might also be a bit loud.

Please post your total times in the comments!


Without spoiling too much of the story, this is a small and simpleĀ racing game taking place inside your mind. The controls may feel a bit slippery at first but they allow for amazing drifts. This game is available in French and English, select your preferred language on startup.


Use the arrow keys to steer, accelerate and brake. Enter and space are used to accept various prompts.


Everything was created by me (sprites, code, music, ...). Except for a few sounds which were sampled and the font which can be foundĀ here.

Made as part of the Global Game Jam 2021

A bit short, but it was still fun to play. The controls did feel weird at first, but I got the hang of it afterwards. Keep up the good work!

Dude that was awesome?
Will there be more ?

GhostWave responds:

maybe, not sure yet :)

Absoiutely charming art, visuals, and music!
I love the idea of this game, and could easily see it with a larger level pack on a store like steam.

I think my only complaint is that the brake should slow you down a lot faster. Using a balance of braking and speeding up in different sections could make for some really fun gameplay.

I look forward to your next creations.

This game was short, but enjoyable. I really like how the controls feel, and I think the level design works well with the slippery controls. Usually I'm not a fan of slippery control, but it allows you to pull off some tight turns, and that feels very satisfying to pull off. I also like the art design. The pastel color give an aesthetic vibe that I can't fully describe. Almost vaporwave like in a way. The sprites are also well made, I really like the tire marks that come from your car. I didn't encounter glitches while I was playing either, which is always a plus when it comes to Newgrounds games.

I have one large complaint though. There doesn't seem to be an incentive to go as fast as you can, which is what the game rates you for at the end. I think this game would benefit heavily from a scoreboard of some sort.

Besides that though, this was pretty decent. It's short, but it seems like that was the point. I feel that a scoreboard would do a lot of good for this game, since your time is the only thing calculated.

GhostWave responds:

Yes I will try to implement a scoreboard, that's a very good idea :)

I like it! Short and sweet. The controls don't take too long to get the hang of. The music feels a little dream-like which fits in with the genre well. But, OMG, can you imagine the terror of this situation played out.

GhostWave responds:

It would be terrifying :')
