A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

You are the final virtual human left on the Cyber Space System before it completely shuts down forever. How do you spend your final moments 'alive'? Well you drive around in a city blasting your favourite synth-wave of course.

Music is very important to your final minutes left in your virtual world. These songs are influences on The Final Shutdown and must be linked to here.

Firstly you start with a modern classic syth-wave song

You can also find two other songs hidden in the city

SO FAR AWAY by LAZERHAWK

ACCELERATED by Miami Nights 1984

I do not own and did not create these songs, this game is more of a tribute to show off how amazing these songs are! Please google these songs and buy them if you enjoy them!

Better yet, why not send these memories to anyone out there watching. Take pictures with your camera inside the virtual world and share them with everyone on the outside.

Pictures taken inside The Final Shutdown using the in-game camera can be found inside The Final Shutdown_Data/Screenshots folder for windows. For other operating systems it will be inside a folder labelled "Data" which should be inside a "Resources" folder. Please feel free to send me your pictures you take in the comments below or tweet it to me!

 Please keep in mind, this an ongoing project which will see more mechanics + cars + virtual spaces + music added into the game as time goes on. This game will ALWAYS BE FREE.

my car stopped going forward help

What do you mean? Was it stuck somewhere or was something underneath it? You can always restart the game and it should reset everything back to normal.

Lovely Neon Car.
