Super Woden GP looks like a promising upcoming top-down racer

By - | Views: 8,360

Featuring a top-down view, Super Woden GP looks like it could bring some excitement when it comes to Linux later this year from developer ViJuDa.

"Feel the excitement of the 90s with the isometric perspective, its huge number of vehicles and its brilliant soundtrack. More than 60 cars from six manufacturers from different countries to buy, an extensive campaign mode, dozens of circuits, rally stages, championships, and much more awaits you!"

I spoke to the developer ViJuDa who confirmed Linux support. After the awesome experience that art of rally was, I'm keen to see more in this top-down style rather than the ultra realism you get with the likes of the DiRT series. It just gives a different feel, and I grew up with 2D racers so to see them continue to evolve is great.

Features:

  • An intuitive main map where you will have access to a multitude of possibilities.
  • A huge number of vehicles of all kinds, from compact cars, rally cars, or fast prototypes. You can buy them with the credits you earn as you compete, or even unlock hidden vehicles.
  • 6 vehicle manufacturers from different parts of the world, each with its own history and style.
  • Repaint any vehicle at the shop.
  • Vibrant graphic section that stands out thanks to the artistic style and various display modes.
  • Wide variety of scenarios; like deserts, snowy landscapes, cities, forests and more.
  • Powerful soundtrack, by Franikku Music and Incognito Devito.
  • Local multiplayer for up to 4 players in split screen.

You can follow it on Steam.

I can assure you that the game runs great on Linux, and it is tremendously fun and addictive, with lots of tracks, iconic cars and references/homages to the classics of the genre. I think if you like games with a 90' retro feel, you'll love this one.

Go, ViJuDa, go!

Great type of game, brings me back to the times me and friends were cramped around the Amiga, playing Super Cars, Super off-road and Nitro.
Will get this for sure.

This looks pretty cool, depending on how well Circuit Superstars ends up running on Linux I might go for this one instead.

Now the game is even better than in this video, and more things are being added.

The demo is good, but you only can try rally mode. In game, at the moment there are single events, championships, Endrance Races, and of course rallys. Is a complete motorsport retro game.
The game is now on Steam with a 40% discount at only 6.47€, and is really awesome. I think you Liam, must write about it.

Looks like a game that would be a good fit for the Steam Deck too!
Seems to fit perfect on Steam Deck, many people are saying this. But of course can be played in your 60" TV, and sit on the Sofa while you play with 3 friends via Remote Together

Thanks for the heads up, bought it.
Looks fun to play with friends.
