MOUNT MAUNGANUI, New Zealand–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Indie game development studio Flightless releases their newest game Monster Racing League on Steam Early Access.

Monster Racing League is a fast-paced multiplayer combat racing game that has been crafted for maximum fun. In Monster Racing League the monsters drive themselves, freeing up players to time the use of offensive and defensive abilities to disrupt their opponents. Races are short, hectic, sometimes reckless, but always fun!

“With MRL we’re really looking for that multiplayer party-game vibe. We’ve removed the steering component of a kart racing type game, but added strategy in the use of abilities, boosters and manually controlling your nitro speed, which keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s highly competitive as well as being easy to pick up and play.”

-John O’Reilly, Founder, Creative Director

As with Flightless’ previous games there is high polish and craft on show in Monster Racing League. The visual style is set through eye-catching design of the customizable monster characters and the engaging track environments. Each monster comes with its own set of unlockable abilities and upgrades so you’ll want to collect more monsters to access a wider range of awesome abilities, boosters and looks.

In this release players can compete in online multiplayer matches or host their own games and invite their friends. With practice mode available, they can train against a variety of in-house monsters and hone their skills.

Flightless is committed to engaging with the community during this time, gathering feedback and providing regular updates as they move to a full release later in the year.
