Pocket Wheels is about the childhood dream of imagining adventures with your toys inside the house. It’s a 3d platformer and racing game crossover, inspired by 90s collectathons. You play as a toy car with various abilities like jumping, gliding, and even a grappling hook. There are various vehicles that you can purchase with coins in the toy garage. Coins are collected in one of the many rooms inside the fully explorable house. Every room has a different theme with various race tracks, objectives and collectibles.
Hey, I’m Florian Wolf 32 years old from germany and I’m the only developer on Pocket Wheels. Game development is my hobby for over 20 years and I’ve released some game jam games and one mobile game called Mathuba. I’m still working as a web developer part time while working on games in the evening. Almost three years ago I was looking for a new project to work on. I’ve always loved 3d platformers, racing games and games where you play a tiny sized character. So I combined those three elements and the Pocket Wheels prototype was born. I’ve posted the prototype on the internet and the reactions were so overwhelming that I knew I had to keep working on this idea. Three years later Pocket Wheels turned into a real game and the first public demo is just around the corner!
