Choosing Race: Krautscape
Krautscape looks like the racing game from my dreams, the one where the path pops up right in front of me like a rainbow. And look at this story. This is the hot shit, man:
I know, only sick and strange people care about story in racing or fighting games, but this seems like a game created by the sick and strange. In its essence, the game seems like a delicious mixture of Audiosurf, F-Zero, and those devilishly twisted moments in Mario Kart 64 where you jumped off of Rainbow Road only to land further ahead on the track, way ahead of your opponents.
It’s basically Rainbow Road the game, except instead of you having to carefully plot your jumps, you’re in a weird half car, half plane hovercraft that can fly across the level. Oh, and the person in first creates the track in front of them based off their position, allowing them drive the track away from would be flying passers.
This all looks glorious, in other words. No word on a release date yet (“before June 2051”, the developer kindly hints in the comments to the below video. Thanks, guv!) but it’s in development for PC and Mac. Here’s their site again, and here it is in glorious motion:
