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.

So, uhm, we don't get keys for steam? I couldn't wait and thought I buy it on desura and also get a Steam key afterwards, like many others games did, but my page doesn't show any key for trace vector? Help?

For anyone else looking for Steam keys. If you ordered the game through Groupees check your Groupees account, they have been credited to your account. If there's still an issue email me and I'll help you out.

Indie Games Searchlight made me aware of this game, and I'm not sure if I should praise or curse them for it. Such a simple concept, basic graphics, and yet so pretty and compelling to play. Not to mention frustratingly hard for an ageing person like me who lost most of my twitch reflexes long ago.
Could be nice with a level editor to see just how evil people could be with challenges.
And perhaps a grandpa needs practice mode with slowed down gameplay but inability to score or progress.

And as shadow1w2 noted isometric or 3D look. Don't know how it's rendered as is, but if it's 3D accelerated on a surface, tilting the view angle, maybe making the camera rotate slowly during play could be a challenge for those masochists out there who aren't content with the twitch reflexes required already. Or a "Follow" cam which will rotate way too quickly for anyone to not get sick.

I sure wish this had an isometric or 3D sorta look but overall its a rather nice litlte game.
Got my copy from the groupees bundle, had not to pass it up.

It might make the game hard to play, but it could be interesting. I may take a look at implementing that in the future after all the releases are out. Could see it being nice for Endless mode in particular since that's quite a bit simpler to read visually.

For some reason Groupees doesn't have the installer on our profiles, just the Desura key. Maybe they're having the same problem?

I've sent off a notice to Desura. The problems seem to be very inconsistent. If needed, private message me and I'll get you a copy of the installer myself.
