The Making of Lights Out Racing
Ever wondered how our FORMULA ONE-inspired board game, Lights Out Racing came to life? In this blog post, we'll take you behind the scenes and provide a glimpse into the creative process and dedication that went into making this exciting game.
It all starts with an idea. Our passion for FORMULA ONE and tabletop gaming converged, inspiring us to create a game that captures the essence of the sport. Lights Out Racing was never intended to see the public eye. It was created for us to enjoy and feel the spirit of FORMULA ONE.
Design and Development
The VERY FIRST game played of Lights Out Racing was a photo finish where the winner was decided on the last turn. Each player had a winning roll, but the one who moved first crossed the finish line, becoming the P1 finisher. And that's when we knew Lights Out Racing was the real deal and we had to share it with the world!
We worked tirelessly to create a game that would do justice to the thrill of FORMULA ONE. From designing the game board to perfecting the mechanics, every detail was meticulously considered.
Our aim was to ensure that our game authentically mirrored the essence of FORMULA ONE, leading us to immerse ourselves in the sport's complexities. This involved comprehending the timing and utilization of how drivers use technologies like the Energy Recovery System (ERS) and Drag Reduction System (DRS), as well as grasping the strategic elements and the electrifying dynamics present in real FORMULA ONE racing.
Testing and Feedback
Before the game reached your hands, it went through rigorous testing phases. We wanted to ensure it was not only exciting but also fair, balanced, and true to the spirit of the sport. Valuable feedback from beta testers helped us refine the gameplay.
Final Touches and Production
Once the gameplay was perfected, we worked on the final touches. The artwork, components, and packaging were designed to deliver an authentic and captivating experience.
The making of our Lights Out Racing was a labor of love. We hope you'll enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed creating it. Explore the world of racing by trying our game, Lights Out Racing.
