“Next Car Game” From Creators Of Flat-Out Hits Kickstarter

/ 3 years ago


Earlier this year we brought you news that the creators of Flat-Out, the physics based racing smash-em-up, were working on something new. Their new game is still dubbed “Next Car Game” and it’s a fitting title given that it is exactly what it sounds like.

Fans of the series have been crying out for a Kickstarter and that’s exactly what they’ve been given. The crowd-funding has begun for NCG and as soon as the campaign has ended, all supporters will be treated to a playable sneak peek demo.

“As part of our Kickstarter campaign we will give our backers a chance for some unique experiences. As one of these, we are offering an opportunity to get in the mood for Holiday Season and meet Santa Claus! Upon a pledge, we will fly two very lucky persons to spend a weekend in snowy Arctic Circle, Lapland of Northern Finland. The participants will get to experience the breathtaking Finnish nature in winter, enjoy skiing or take a ride in reindeer sleigh, see the world-famous northern lights, and of course, meet Santa!”

The Santa trip sounds cool (no pun intended) but I can’t help but think that if they’ve got money for this, why raise extra on the Kickstarter? I’d rather every penny goes towards development.

The title will be developed PC first. However, the dev team have received a lot of requests for next-generation console versions, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are possibilities if that is what the people demand.

“Next Car Game will be our tenth game, and this time we wanted to work directly with the players instead of working with a publisher. We want to make this game for us and the players, not for the publisher. We strongly believe that it is possible to create the world’s best demolition racing game using crowd-funding, and to do that, we need engage the community and develop the game together with the players. This is something that Kickstarter makes possible: doing the game with the fans gives us a lot more creative freedom, and together we have a chance to create a better game.”

The game is currently slated for spring 2014 release, but before the release an Early Access version of the game will be made available for supporters that will help fans give the development team the feedback they need to make the game even better.

Head on over to Kickstarter and show them your support.

    Been playing Flat Out for a good while and I love it. That was until the last one that came out, FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction. That was the worst ever. I understand Bug Bear didn’t have anything to do with it. Just want to ask what happened and to check that it will not happen again? Can we get some different tracks this time as well.
