Bit early to say. Game is in Alpha state. But so far so good. Has a lot of Flatout flavour.

I played this one with controller. Will try a Wheel later.
Only a couple of cars and a few tracks are available. But those physics are awesome and the game runs smooth as butter. Even with 24 cars and all graphics settings maxxed out.

Don't know how that will stick with the online version.

For 20€ you cant go wrong IMO and also support development. :rightthumbup:

I won my first 24 car demolition stadium derby at first try, lol. Probably lucky. Vid will follow soon®

EDIT: no support for my wheel yet. A bit disappointing, but as it is in alpha state a lot can happen. MS Controller works like a charm. But i prefer a wheel in a driving game, lol

Here's my second attempt at the 24 car race (first didn't go well :o )
Still getting used to the track but with 24 cars you need a bit of luck to get around :auto-crash:
Only managed 4th in this one but have managed to finish 1st since I recorded this.
I quit like this game even though its a long way off yet, only criticism would be that some of the cars are still drivable when clearly looking at the damage they have taken they should not be. :eeek:

lol, yes i could still steer with one front wheel gone and the other wobbling around. Alpha state, but still a lot of fun.
Did you use a wheel or controller? I couldn't get my Fanatec to work so had to play with Xbox360 controller.

This is one of those games that puts a big grin on your face. :rightthumbup:

Huge update on Steam for Next Car Game

New figure 8 track and more layout options on existing tracks. And a new car. Looks like handling has been improved as well.
Finally managed to finish a race on gravel (4th) :rightthumbup:
