Pre-orders still available, playable new technology demo available now to those that have one.
Former FlatOut developer Bugbear has pulled the ripcord on its languishing Kickstarter campaign for the yet-to-be-titled Next Car Game, deciding instead to refocus back on the pre-order campaign running on the game’s website.
The Kickstarter campaign was initially difficult for the Finnish studio to launch but fan pressure led to the Helsinki-based team to make it a reality, despite pre-orders already being available at www.nextcargame.com. Funding was eventually halted at just over $80,000 of the game’s $350,000 goal.
Those who have pre-ordered the game, which Bugbear promised would be released regardless of the outcome of the Kickstarter campaign, can now download what the dev team is dubbing a “technology sneak peek”. The tech demo is playable and is the same playground Bugbear uses to test the game’s car damage and environmental destruction.
“The best thing about it is that you will get a chance to have fun and wreak havoc with an amazing 24 cars!” continued the Bugbear statement.
“In the full game the action will take place on many locations, including a number of race tracks and derby arenas. We're also going to improve the gameplay and technology on many fronts such as car damage and handling, and our Early Access customers will get a chance to experience these improvements first-hand during the Early Access phase!”
Anyone eager to support Bugbear’s mission to bring back destruction racing should head to www.nextcargame.com to pre-order and get access to the sneak peek.
