Bloody Rally Show from February 2020 was probably one of the best top-down racers I've played in a long time, and it now has a free Bloody Rally Show: Prologue version you can try out.
This is no art of rally, it's less of a zen experience much more grimy - it's all about the more intense and chaotic side of racing against others. It's an action-racer, one that gives you a campaign mode to play through as well as some car-combat modes, car customisation and more. It's a very surprising game and a huge amount of fun.
Now thanks to the Bloody Rally Show: Prologue, you get a pretty big taste of what to expect with:
- Race against other players in Daily Challenge - an asynchronous multiplayer event with daily leaderboards
- Play through first 3 weeks in Campaign Mode - you can do this with your friends in local split screen co-op or vs
- Have quick races and battles in procedurally generated environments
- Experience the full blown Track and Car Editors that can be used to create content for the full version
Check out the Prologue free on Steam.
If you missed it, the developer also recently announced their next game which will come with Linux support called Stardeus, a spaceship base-building colony sim.
