Calling all game developers! Are you ready to take your racing skills to the next level? Then join us for the Arcade Racing Game Jam!

In this game jam, you will have about 3 weeks to create an ARCADE RACING GAME that is unlike anything that has come before it. Get inspired by some of the classic arcade racers like Forza Horizon, Mario Kart and Need For Speed, and put your own twist on it!

These games are all classics for a reason. They are fun, exciting, and well-made. They are also all very different, so there is something for everyone. If you are looking for inspiration for your own arcade racing game, these are the games to check out.
