There seems to be growing momentum behind Microsoft’s rumoured Surface Phone. We reported last week that the latest Windows 10 SDK made reference to a Factory OS Andromeda device, and now an unreleased first-party Windows 10 game popped up which also appears to be designed to run on a device with that OS.

Miami Heat is a racer created by Electric Square and Microsoft Studios that is designed for touchscreen PCs. The game has previously been rumored as “Forza Kart”, suggesting a simpler version of that racing simulator, and with an age rating starting at 3 years it is unlikely to be the most demanding game in the world.

More interesting, however, the WC reports, is that the app package metadata says the game is targeting Windows 10 PC and the “Andromeda OS“, the shell designed for Microsoft’s dual-screened tablet/phone hybrid.

The game description reads:

We’ve got some exciting news to share. We proudly announce Miami Street, a project that Electric Square has been working on with our partners at Microsoft Studios. Developed to be played on any Windows 10 device, Miami Street is a new kind of racing game, built for a broad audience who love easy to pick-up-and-play experiences. As we continue the development of Miami Street in the months ahead, we will begin releasing the game in limited regions for testing and player feedback.

A sample of gameplay can be seen below, and the game can be seen in the store here.

More important than the game of course is that it appears Microsoft is creating content specifically for their new OS, suggesting if Microsoft does launch the device it will be with a significant push.
