Tiny Chopper Raceway is an example top down drifting/racing game made using the MIT licenced Godot engine. This game was initially made in two hours as part of a talk on making games quickly for the Tasmanian Linux User Group in March 2016. A little additional polish was added, but it still has a number of rough edges. Wear gloves when handling!

Big thanks to Attitude for his work on music and audio, and a special thank you to all my Patreon supporters (see SUPPORTERS.md for details).

I hope you find something useful from playing Tiny Chopper Raceway and exploring its code!
