Race cars with the worst handling ever made online in ForeveRacers

My god, Foreveracers [Official Site, Itch.io Store] might be my new favourite stupid thing. It's an online racer where the cars are all top heavy physics wobbly things.

It's a great idea, totally silly and actually damn funny. It actually works quite well considering it's still in early development and it's currently free.

Bouncing around, putting people off and crashing everywhere. Glorious. It actually reminded me a bit of our Grid Autosport tournament and how hilarious it was.

The idea of being able to just drop in online whenever you want is great, no waiting around, start as soon as you're ready. Just watch out for other drivers, they are devils and they will try to bump you off the road and into walls or the sea.

It even has a day and night cycle, what more can you ask for?

You can vote for it on Steam Greenlight too.

They will be doing a big multiplayer test session this weekend. Saturday at 8PM UTC.

Gave this a thumbs up on GL. For not taking itself too seriously.

Dang. I'll be making a road trip at that time. Otherwise, I would join you.

Had to..?

Anyway, this looks awesome. It really needs a split-screen mode, and luckily it has one.

Hi,
Thanks a lot for checking out my game, and writing this article.

Also thanks to the readers for the great comments, and the sudden surge in players and greenlight votes that seems to have come from this. All very much appreciated, more than my cheap words can convey.

I'm going to have to stay up late now to catch up though - I was meant to be working on the game for the last two hours, instead I've been playing the game with some of the fine folk lured in by this article!

Thanks again, and hope to see some of you racing on Saturday night.

regards,

Ram Steelwood

Hmmm, I'm not sure I want to get involved in a platform war...or is that good for votes? ;)

Anyway, with the jump in downloads of the Linux version since this article, I'd be more tempted to put Linux first! There's been over 100 downloads via the itch.io page, and about 75% are for the Linux version. Pretty sure that's mostly down to you lot here, so thank you for that (but don't stop spreading the word!).


PS: Just between me and you....no. But it's just too awesome to let go!
