Legendary bike racer Mike Glovemaker had it all! Fame! Mansions! The golden edition of the Nintendo World Championship cartridge! But it was all taken from him when the public found out that he spends most of his days in his underwear sitting on his couch! But Mike will not give up! He will gain back the public's trust, even without a motorcycle! Will he be able to make his grand comeback as... THE RAG RACER OR: HOW HE LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BUMP™?!

So yeah, do you ever get the thought "I wonder how Outrun does its 3D effect" and then follow up the thought with "Wow, I should test that out in a 48-hour gamejam"? Good times. I hope the physics aren't too frustrating, if it's any consolation, the game isn't very long. If nothing else I feel like I accomplished my personal goal of involving the player more. In a bit of an unusual way, but that still counts!

Install instructions

Extract the folder and open RagRacer.exe.

Dreamcast:

Burn the .cdi file to a CD-R using Padus Discjuggler 6.0 (https://legacy.padus.com/produ...).  CD-RWs will not work. Burn at slow speeds, if possible. Put the CD-R in your Dreamcast. If it shows -Rag Racer executable- during the Sega logo screen, you did everything correctly.
