The creators of MotoGP Championship Quest aimed to make the game accessible to both serious gamers and casual players. They noticed that in other motorcycle racing games, the swaying motion of the rider while trying to maintain control of the bike on the track was a common issue. This steering difficulty often led players to become frustrated and eventually give up.
To address this problem and prioritize fun and enjoyment over frustration, the creators focused on two key aspects that significantly impact the racing experience: braking into and accelerating out of corners. These actions are considered crucial by professional racers, as they require precise timing, bravery, and calculated risks.
While the game may lack the ability to steer the bike, the creators acknowledged this limitation. However, they emphasized that players can still enjoy the game, especially when playing with friends who may not be as skilled. They also welcomed feedback from players to further improve the game.
