Fireboats

Another QCF prototype that I quite like. We missed the mark in a lot of ways with this, but the controls are pretty sweet and the potential for some good arcadey fun is there. The game involves one or more players racing boats around in order to extinguish fires by splashing them. We wanted to get players slaloming between obstacles as they race around the world and drifting like a badass as their wake washes over flaming wreckage. When that does happen, the game is great. But it doesn’t happen often enough. Re-purposing the controls with some less bad/broken mechanics might be worth looking into at some stage.
