"Overall Touring Karts is a blast! It gave me exactly what I wanted out of a VR karting game. The tracks are wacky and fun, the graphics are clear though simplistic, both the singleplayer and multiplayer are fun to play, and there are a ton of options for all players. If you enjoy Kart racers, this game is a must have."  PSVR Review.

For the first time in a home VR system, Touring Karts will make you feel like playing an arcade Kart game. Players will be able to choose from 6 different control schemes:

  1. Dualshock as classic/static controller
  2. Dualshock as motion controller
  3. Wheel
  4. Wheel + 1 PS move controller
  5. 2 PS move controllers: One to handle the wheel and the other to interact with the world
  6. 3dRudder + 1 PS move controller

Master your racing skills while interacting with the environment as if you would be doing it in the real world. Get ready to make your way through the first place while throwing ice cubes, chickens, bombs, shoot bazokas, smashing your rivals with a giant hammer, and also take a break in the middle of the chaos to recover your health by drinking energetic beverages!

“As fans of F1 and the Mario Kart saga, we were missing an experience that united these two worlds taking advantage of all the possibilities that Virtual Reality can offer. We wanted to bring all the excitement and crazy fun of the kart-type arcade games into a universe where we always find new challenges and where we can compete with our friends. ”-Ivan Cascales, Founder and CEO at Ivanovich Games.

With the help of the community, Spanish Developer Ivanovich Games has been compromised to keep polishing and adding features to Touring Karts since it was launched about 3 months ago on Steam Early Access, we want to thank our community for their continuous feedback and support.
