Let's face it. Racing games today are nothing more than a battle to be an über-realistic simulation, with the few exceptions often overshadowed. Knowing this, the developer behind Sonic Fan Remix has opened an all new Kickstarter for his upcoming indie game - The 90s Arcade Racer - a glorification of the neglected coin-op genre.
While our opening statement may have been a little brash, it's hard to identify modern arcade racers aside the from the likes of Out Run 2, the Burnout series, the more recent Sega Rally and MotorStorm. As technology has advanced, developers have found themselves carefully mimicking the vehicles, even down to ensuring the windscreen wipers and headlights are as accurate as possible.
The 90s Arcade Racer, however, is very much the answer to our long lasting desire to approach sharp turns at full speed once more whilst barging our way through traffic with the remaining time left. Featuring a selection of three playable vehicles with varying grip, drifting and dynamics, alongside three different circuits: Short/Beginner, Medium/Amateur and Long/Professional, this upcoming racer is clearly an ode to Daytona USA, Indy 500 and Scud Race. This influence is only made more clear when you consider how similar the flagship car model is to the much loved Team Hornet vehicles.
The developer behind this project, who has already proved his abilities in the past, is hoping to raise £10,000 via Kickstarter to help develop and launch his game for the PC, Mac and possibly OUYA.
