Tanuki Sunset is a third-person longboard-skating game where players play as a raccoon skating downhill on a procedurally generated synthwave-themed seaside road.

Drift your way around the narrow corners, gather Tanuki Bits to fill up your Bonus Roulette Meter and try and gather as many points as you can.

Drift often. Get some air-time and avoid cars and obstacles while pushing your luck close to the walls and edges to get near-miss moments and tight-squeezes to maximize your score.

This game supports Xbox 360 controller input and Keyboard controls.

Love it! however i did find that as drifting is so uncontrollable it is better to simply turn, which feels a lot less great. The atmosphere is amazing. Keep it up!

Though I had trouble at first once I got the hang of it was enjoyable.

Cool game! I added some footage from it in my latest list video. The drifting is a little tricky and there are a lot of games on here like this, but the music and visuals really pop. Good job!

Love this game a lot and is so fun. Would love to stream this on twitch and was wondering if you would consider making an entry on giant bomb?

Hello! I would really like to play this game but the visuals won't show up on my screen. I can hear the game and see the score but everything else is just a blank grey screen. I would appreciate it if you could help?

Really fun game! It's very addictive and has a nice and unique style to it. This should be on Steam.

anyone ever just not press the retry button to endlessly watch the raccoon fall into the void?

(+1)

Fun game! Very nice graphics, very good feel of movement. The music is great. Leaves you wanting more. Have to continue playing to get a big score lol

TRASH PANDA ON A SKATEBOARD. And that is all I have to say about it. It's amazing and I love the retro vaporwave feel, very chill!

Thank you for playing SuperSeizer! You've got LOTS of energy! Thanks for the video as well! :D

Cool game! I like how simple and fun it was learning how to play it

(+2)

This game is absolutely incredible! The quirkiness of the raccoon/tanuki, the great graphics, and the calming music. All I can say is good job squidsquad and thank you for this amaziing game. I hope you will continue developing this as well as other awesome games! :)

Hey guys, just wanted to say this is one of my favorite games to play right now and I've been having an absolute blast.  I showed it to my buddy and we've been trying to outscore each other.  Thanks for the fantastic game!

(+3)

This is a very fun game and I like the original mode's music, but I wish there was a way to add your own playlist into the game. Also if possible could this game be ported to Steam anytime soon?

(+1)

Hey! Thank you for playing! Adding your own tracks would be super cool. We're currently building a complete game out of it. We want to bring it to Steam and the Nintendo Switch if we can!

Hey so the Discord link doesn't work

I had a blast playing as a corn chip chewing raccoon long-boarding in Vapor Wave Land!  Check out my review:

Thank you McGeeTV, for your super-thorough review! You guys basically nailed everything we had as a vision when we started with this project and put it into better words that we could say ourselves.

Best game I've ever played. 10/10 

Wow thank you for your video! It means so much to us how much you fun you had with it. Please stay tuned, we are planning more things to come!

I play this game among others in my newest video:

Thanks!

Thank you for the video Spudcats!

I love this game so much!! Once I got used to the controls it felt like butter to control. Big ups to whoever programmed the movement. I love the look and style, and the audio visualization going on with the sun. My one complaint is in the download version I can't type my name for highscores.

Thank you! The movement was adjusted a lot based on the feedback, so if anything it's thanks to you guys that the game feels better too :)

About the name entry, since we wanted the entire game to be playable using a controller, we decided to have keyboard input a secondary priority. Thank you for playing!

(+1)

Having played on a controller now, this makes a lot of sense! It's definitely the ideal way to play. I love this game and hope y'all continue to add to it (the phone was a great addition btw). Either way I'll be following whatever y'all working on. Much love

(+2)

Groovy. Sound and art style fit together perfectly. 

Thanks for playing!

Love where this game is going guys! Nice aesthetic. 

One small bug (i think) which you're likely already aware of - if I pause the game around the same time as a game over due to falling off happens and click retry, the muted state of the music doesn't switch back to normal upon starting to ride again.

Keep doing what you're doing!!


EDIT: After playing for hours longer (hooked), wanted to come back and say - awesome choice of music.

Thank you for reporting that bug, it should be all included in an update soon! Glad you're having fun with the game!

Hello 

I came across your game in my recommended tab on itch.io and I really love the way your game looks. As a YouTuber, I would love to play your game on my channel, but only with your permission.

Have a nice day!
