One racing game I am genuinely excited about is Bloody Rally Show, a top-down racer that looks genuinely good and it has a fresh trailer up to show off recent development progress.
It will fully supported Linux too, as I tested out previously. One of the reasons I'm excited about this, is that it firmly reminds me of some classic early racers from the Amiga only with everything turned up a notch or two. Not only that, something of a rarity in racing games is that it will have a fully featured campaign story mode with cut-scenes and all. This campaign mode can even be played in local co-op.
Have a peek at the latest trailer, it looks rad:
It's had some pretty big updates to the Beta version recently too like Asynchronous Multiplayer. This allows you to compete in the Time Attack mode for the fastest lap times against a ghost car of someone above you in the leader-board. If you're number one, you will race against your own ghost. When introducing Asynchronous Multiplayer, the developer said "online multiplayer is not available (yet)" so that might even be a little tease that it's coming later too.
Some small and helpful tweaks have been included recently too, like the mini-map being customizable in both size and position. Game Hero Interactive have also been keeping up with Unity game engine updates, so it should run very nicely at release.
- Satisfying arcade-style car physics (handling, drifting, speed)
- Infinite amount of randomly generated Race Tracks
- Possibility to share your custom built cars and tracks on Steam Workshop for others to enjoy
- Racer XP and level-up
- Car tuning and upgrades
- Custom paint jobs and racer avatars
- Split Screen Local multiplayer for up to 4 players
- Configuration setting to turn off blood (for family friendly split screen racing sessions)
- Races with 100 opponents!
After personally playing it for quite a few hours now, I've begun to get a little attached to it when needing to burn off a little steam myself. I seem to spend far too much time customizing my paint job too, there's so many variations possible. Just look at this sweet little ride:
The new ghost car feature is also awesome, really makes the game a whole lot more fun. I also seem to find it impossible to beat my own times once I set them.
If you like racing games, this is one you need to keep an eye on.
You can wishlist and follow on Steam ready for release next year.
