Voxel Podracer

This is a small project I worked on during my study. I decided to recreate the exact pod-racer map from Star Wars in MagicaVoxel and bring it to live in Unity.

The game and all the assets were created in a short period of time (10 weeks) with 4 other equally sized projects next to it, so please apologise the lack of quality in the final game.

Try the game here.

Looking back at this project, I think it had a lot of potential. I would say that just a bit of post processing alone could have made everything look way nicer already. The controls still don’t feel very responsive and don’t making driving that fun. I remember sizing the pods very small so the race would feel faster, but I now see how it ruined the map more than it helped the gameplay.
