8-Bit Music Racing Game SPECTRA coming to Xbox One and PC this summer!

Gateway Interactive, an imaginative indie games start-up company, and independent publishing studio Mastertronic are excited to announce 8-bit music racing game Spectra, coming to Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program and to PC and Mac this summer.

Spectra is a dynamic twitch racing game that will keep you on the edge of your seat! Blast your nimble ship down intricate ribbons of light in time to the dynamic beats and original soundtrack by chiptune artist legend Chipzel (Super Hexagon, Size Does Matter, Interstellaria).

Be prepared to get your heart pumping as you drift into a trance with just one objective - survive till the music stops! Navigate around obstacles, collect points whilst trying to drive with as much style as possible and stay on the road. As the player progresses through the levels, the speed increases, requiring more advanced dexterity to survive!

Featuring two powerful gameplay modes (Normal and Hardcore) with 10 unique music tracks used to generate procedural levels, race against the beat to experience unlimited playthroughs! Staying sharp is essential and reaction timing vital as memory is obsolete with this nostalgia-driven, arcade-like game. Spectra is a veritable homage to arcade games of old; true mastery will require all your twitch skills and the beautiful retro-style graphics will have you just itching to dig up your Atari!

The Spectra game announcement trailer is available to watch on YouTube: 

Spectra will be launching on the Xbox One as well as PC, Mac & Linux on 10th July.
