'Desert Child' (ALL) Release Date Set For Next Month - Trailer

You're broke, you're hungry, and your only friends are a vintage hoverbike and a bowl of ramen noodles.

Desert Child is a hoverbike racing RPG where you are a young and talented hoverbike racer who needs to figure out how you can scrape enough cash together through racing and odd jobs to punch your one way ticket to the Red Planet to enter the biggest race in the universe, the Grand Prix.

The world as we know it is slowly starting to become inhabitable, and many people on Earth have moved to Mars for a better quality of life. To top it all off, the government announces that in two weeks, tickets to Mars will go up in price, making the exodus to the Red Planet unobtainable for regular citizens.

You’ll deliver pizzas, collect gun parts, hunt bounties, and make some fans along the way. In between races, you’ll explore colorful cities where you can repair and upgrade your bike, dine on the local cuisine, and fight your way through gangsters, bounty hunters, and all sorts of interesting characters, just so that you can have a decent meal and pay rent.

Nothing’s free in Desert Child.

Desert Child will also be a part of the Kinda Funny Games Showcase, taking place on December 8, 2018 at 10 AM PT on Twitch, where a special trailer will debut.
