Who remembers the days of Super Sprint, RC Pro Am, or Super Off Road? Those were the days, weren’t they? Single screen racing games have a certain charm about them. This unnamed racing game is a new entry in this style. Current release date is “unknown” but Commodore Amiga fans, get ready.
Labor of love for a sport
No matter your preference in racing games you are probably a die-hard fan. That is natural and nothing to be ashamed of. For me, racing was pretty much limited to video games. This is partially due to living in areas where races were simply not available.
The developers behind this unnamed racing game are clearly die-hard fans of Formula 1 racing. I first came to experience this version on the original PlayStation when I picked up a copy of Formula 1 by Psygnosis.
Attention to details
From grandstands to twisty tracks, there is a lot going on in this unnamed racing game already. What is interesting here is, it is not finished its run through development.
In the video above you can see a few tracks that feature distinctly different scenery. The tracks are completely different as well. Our friends over on Indie Retro News brought up similarities with Super Sprint and Super Off-Road and I must agree. It is great company to have.
There is currently no animation in the backgrounds. This is something I am sure will be worked on in future updates. The animation of the cars is fluid and there are many frames depicting the various views.
Expected release date
Right now, there is no word on exactly when fans can expect to get their hands on this unnamed racing game. Obviously, a name will need to be decided upon prior to release.
Based on the video, are you excited for this overhead racer?
