Go fast, and don't break an egg!

This game does not actually cause frostbite.

History

The idea for Eggcelerate! was conceptualized during LudumDare 46 in April 2020 and proved very entertaining. The 48 hour prototype was ranked in the top 1% for fun (12th of 1383) which led to building the full version for an Easter release in 2021. Eggcelerate! was created by a single developer with some assets provided by a live-stream community and a few freelancers.

Winter Eggspansion for Eggcelerate! was then created to bring egg racing to the north pole for Easter 2022. Meant to be just a few extra features and tracks, the eggspansion turned into a whole new eggsperience with collectable snowmen, new physics and a whole new world to eggsplore!
