Have you ever hoped you could get back to the glorious days of Demolition Derby and FlatOut, climb behind the wheel of your banged-up ride and once again wreck your way to the finish line and show who’s the boss? You’re not the only one. Over the years, we’ve been asked thousands of times when are we going to get back to our roots and make another racing game that would capture the same spirit of over-the-top action and reckless racing.
Finnish studio Bugbear has launched a Kickstarter campaign looking for $350,000 to complete the development of their Next Car Game.
Next Car Game is going to bring those unforgettable moments up-to-date, throw in the mix vehicle upgrading and spice it all up with massive online races where players can battle it out with their tricked out bangers.
Bugbear's Next Car Game is all about fun, breakneck racing and over-the-top crashes. We don’t shy away from contact, and indeed, our in-house engine is all about what happens when cars collide with each other and the world around them at reckless speeds.
It’s motorsport, but not just any motorsport. It’s motorsport with attitude.
Expect epic crashes and tight, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line on run-down racing tracks. Expect proper, big demolition derbies. Expect brand new ways for metal to bend and the defining once-in-the-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with true-to-life physics simulation.
And don’t think that’s all.
Not only the technology has been completely overhauled and brought up-to-date, but we’ve also gone to the source and figured out what a game like Next Car Game is really all about: taking your rust bucket, building it into a formidable track weapon and then battling it out on the track. To that end there’s now a lot of focus on car building and maintenance, with hunting for rare, sought-after parts and replacing damaged components, all that brings an added tactical element to the gameplay.
