Ember Lab: Colonel Kart Racers

Colonel Kart Racers is a mobile racing game I worked on and published while working at Ember Labs. 
It is a branded racing game we developed for Coke to use as a marketing tool for its partners, like KFC, Pizza Hut, and Chick-fil-A.

It was initially released in the Philippines and Vietnam. Coke is planing on a US release for 2015
