Game: Trace Vector
Platfom: PC, Mac, Linux (Desura, DRM-free, Steam Greenlight)
Developer: Vexel Games

Game Description:
Trace Vector is a high speed action arcade game with puzzle elements. Featuring a modern take on vector style graphics, Trace Vector plays like an easy to learn, hard to master, game of the golden age of the 80′s video arcades. Race your space ship through each geometric level, grabbing extra fuel cells along the way. Reach a viable goal to shatter the networks’ hold on your ship and increase your speed. Simple controls keep you focused on navigating the increasingly complex webs at ever increasing speeds. Collect fuel cells and warp time to assist in the precision maneuvering needed to ace a level! Warping time quickly exhausts precious fuel. If you deplete your fuel and crash, it’s game over.

Key Features
A unique driving and evolving soundtrack designed for Trace Vector matches your progress through each of the twelve zones
High energy, yet strangely cerebral, gameplay requires you to think and react quickly to each level
Simple controls let you focus on navigating and thinking ahead. Press left/right (or up/down if you prefer) to guide the ship line through each level
Burn fuel and slow time at any point of your choosing to give you an edge
Levels continuously increase in speed, danger, and complexity
High score tables track your runs in each zone and let you examine where you can improve for better scores.
Vector style graphics on modern hardware provides a smooth 60 FPS experience with adjustable effect levels to ensure maximum performance
Proprietary game engine specifically implemented for Trace Vector
Support for Windows, Mac OSX, and [Ubuntu] Linux

Hey guys. Just to be up front I'm the developer and I got a Google Alert about this thread. Thanks for the post and consideration, but I'd like to make sure that the game is represented better. My concern is that the screenshot doesn't communicate the game, and the embedded videos aren't working (at least when I'm looking at the time of this post).

Please visit the website for a little bit more information, including the Greenlight trailer

Also if you would like to watch some people play the game, here are some Let's Play type videos

Here is a text review from an early player in you'd like a lot more detail.

Of course, I will not be voting in the poll. :lol:

Thanks again!

Watching some of these made me change my vote from a no to a yes. They definitely made me interested in giving the game a try.
