The Earth is going to explode, and you need to escape in Desert Child, a sci-fi hybrid of racer, shooter, and management RPG in development for mobile.

Escaping is an expensive endeavor, so racing to earn money is your most effective option. Riding your customizable hoverbike, you rush through side-scrolling courses across deserts, along highways, within sewers. Weaving around obstacles while shooting down aggressive drones is the key to reaching first place.

Racing isn't your only option in Desert Child though; you'll be able chase down bounties, smuggle illicit goods, among other missions to earn money. Outside of racing and jobs, managing your hunger and funds is important, through mechanics inspired by adventure games and sims.

Desert Child's colorful pixel art world and gameplay is still in development, and you can follow its progress on the game's site.
