Publisher Headup Games and developer Studio Erikson have announced Fromto, a hand-drawn racing game created by a 40 year-old father and his five- and two-year-old kids. It will launch for Switch and PC (Steam) in Q2 2019.

Here is an overview of the game, via Headup Games:

About

Fromto is a horrible, childish 2D sandbox racing game with in game track building. All players race an unfinished track in turn. When everyone fails all players must ‘work together’ to modify the track before they try again. Think strategic, build sneaky routes and trick your opponents with nifty traps and obstacles. Experiment endlessly with tons of track parts and win in unthinkable ways. Play with up to four friends (online or offline) in this action packed living playground. After you ruined all your friendships you can dive into the single player speed run challenges.

Erikson grew up to become a contemporary artist fascinated with playing. His talent did not go unseen in the contemporary art world, his work can be found all across the globe. Over the course of the last few years, his work evolved from gigantic sculptures and paintings via animations to games.
