BAFL - Brakes Are For Losers is a top-down, single-screen racing game created as a tribute to good-old games such as Super Sprint, Indy Heat or Super Off Road.


BAFL is a simple invitation to dive in a state of the art old-school epic racing game. With no freaking brakes!

  • Old-School Top-Down Action
  • 10+ Unique Themed Tracks
  • 8 Funky Cars
  • Local Multiplayer, up to 8 Players
  • Solo and Multiplayer Championships with Car Upgrades
  • Custom Races and Championships with dozens of possibilities
  • In-Race Events and Dirty Tricks
  • Time Attack with World Ladders and Ghosts
  • Badass Soundtrack
  • No. Brakes.

BAFL offers 10+ unique tracks inspired by the pop culture of the 80’s and 90’s and full of funny details and surprising events. Each track takes you to a different setting, from peaceful caribbean island to hellish underground, from fabulous Las Vegas all the way to the Moon!

BAFL is all about pure arcade fun. Challenge your friends, pick a funky car and outrun them thanks to your driving skills or dirty tricks. Ram them out of your way or pick up bonuses to wreck them.

Gather up to 8 people on the same screen, compete in championships, upgrade your cars. And break friendships.

BAFL also offers a challenging solo experience with championships against fierce AIs and special modes such as Time Attack or Perfect Race. Train and compete against the best players worldwide thanks to the global ghost system and make your way to the top of the world leaderboards!

BAFL is the first game of studio Oudidon, founded by Alain Duverger, video game veteran who stormed out of mobile F2P game design to seek the roots of video gaming fun. The team also includes Aline Krebs, young talented artist that led the art direction and Aymeric Schwartz, experienced composer and sound designer (Rayman Adventures, Absolver, Splasher…)  that provided BAFL with the perfect badass soundtrack to match the nervous gameplay.

BAFL - Brakes Are For Losers is available in 10 languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Portuguese/Brazilian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

Its price is set at 9,99€ / $9,99 on Steam and many other online retailers. Note that we run a 25% launch discount, offering it at 7,49€ / $7,49 for one week!

You can find more about BAFL - Brakes Are For Losers on its Official PageFacebookTwitter or Steam.
