Tanuki Sunset Classic 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.

It was awesome with cool art design and with very nice game mechanics was really enjoyable! Nice work wish you the best!

this game got me throught second period math. I hope rewind games knows they made a masterpiece 

One of the few good games on itch!

This is not a Tanuki, since it has a striped tail. False advertising!!!! (Fun fact: Tanuki's are most closely related to foxes. Despite sometimes being called "Raccoon Dogs," they aren't related to the raccoon at all!)


its just a game chill dude.


It's just a joke, "dude."


sorry "dude" but still.

honestly Fuckin amazing (am I allowed to say that) but really using a raccoon on a fkin longboard is amazing keep up the great work. (I'm making a video on this hallelujah) 

Vaporwave aesthetic with a cool raccoon on a skateboard! Awesome game :D

If you're planning on playing this game, MAKE SURE YOU USE A CONTROLLER! Keyboard ain't it lol but I had fun regardless 馃槅

Super chill and relaxing game!

the game is so fun i love 

Got 16,525

Great game! Spent time grinding and was able to get to 176,991! Will definitely be downloading the full version!

I've been playing this game for years and just discovered you can break the game by turning on a skinny road and getting your wheels stuck on either side

HOW ! HOW DID I DIED ON MID AIR LOL, I trying ramp over road without gettin hit by car

This game is Awesome!!


its a great game, i would like to see a multiplayer gamemode in wich you can race your friends

(1 edit) (+1)
got 250 k
i got 250 k also had to throw run cus i had test

my best is 14k

Great game, already have like 4 hours on the thing. Im unable to geta a good highscore to save my life tho. Also I think tricks get too little points in comparison with the amount that just grabbing pips and chilling gets you.

Also, banger soundtrack.

My best advice for newcomers is; Go fast to go slow. You'll understand once you get the hang of it.


Want some more advice? ; Drift to turn, let go to go straight. Use these two and you're sure to score big!

I love this game. It would be cool if there were more things to do tricks on :)


I can't believe all of these people are getting 100k scores, while I struggle to get 10k

very nice game :)

my best score so far


add a rail and a jump button
the longer the rail is the more points u get


good game bro, would be more cool if u add more tricks (skate tricks). epic game 10/10


really cool


broke my record ez


bro got 123,593 and i can barely get 100


i got 209,000 :]


proof? :>




my best is 150 532 :D


my new high score is 41 144


my best score right now is 30,818 but i had a score of 67k but it didn't save after i reloaded the game


congrats on making it to nintendo switch!


my best was 33,338




Nice game, great art style, the beginning could be a bit more easier though!


This may be the best game concept yet




Interesting game! But I met a bug during playing.


Great Job
