Yesterday, the studio behind Velocity 2X, FuturLab, announced a new online multiplayer VR slot racer billed as Micro Machines meets Scalextric,’ exclusively for PlayStation VR. According to the Brighton, England-based developer the game is set to release sometime this summer.

The pitch for the game is that it brings your childhood imaginations to life as tiny cars boost around your body, jump overheard, and drift around bends just inches from your face. It’s essentially one of those crazy Hot Wheel tracks turned into a VR game.

The game is said to be boast online multiplayer for up to four players, 12 tracks across three environments (Tropical, Fire & Ice, and Outer Space), and six different vehicles to choose from. Notably the game also features music composed by video game composer Joris de man, whose previous works include: Horizon: Zero Dawn, Killzone, and Velcoity 2X.

Tiny Trax is said to be the brainchild of game designer Dave Gabriel, who came up with the concept when he was a game tester at FuturLab, and who was part of creating the game from the ground-up intimately.

The game will be available for a hands-on demo via Sony at E3 2017. Below, you can check out the game’s announcement trailer:
