    Title: Skyreach
    Screenshots/Video: See our website -- rainbowgoats.com
    Game URL: http://rainbowgoats.com/builds/Skyreach v1.6.4.zip -- also can be accessed on website
    Platform: PC (targeting Steam Greenlight this April)
    Feedback Details: We're interested in what people think of the building and driving mechanic, the feel of the player camera, clarity of the gameplay, and similar
    Known Issues:
    -Occasionally tracks do not reset on death/failure
    -We know the driving character looks goofy (not a bug, but it's definitely not done)

    Description:
    This is a game in which a single player builds a track and travels along it simultaneously. We are setting the game in an environment that's sort of Avatar meets Southwest United States -- the player will be driving through canyons in the sky. This build does not currently have that implemented, but you can see some of the screenshots on our website.
    We are a group of graduate students at the University of Utah in the EAE program there, with an expected graduation this May. Any of your thoughts and feedback on our project would be greatly appreciated.

    New concept art for the vehicle. It's not textured or anything yet, but it will be future-primitive looking ... rock, mammoth-bone, leather, etc. The wheel pieces will all be rotating together akin to gears when this thing is animated. Here it is:
