Next Car Game gets featured in Red Bull Stunt School in an article that sports five top notch videos about NCG. The article starts with “Who needs to watch The Fast and the Furious movies when you can play this instead?”

Sweet :)

Edge is a video game magazine with a long and esteemed history. They interviewed us in detail about Bugbear’s future and history, and we talked about Next Car Game a lot.

The studio profile is now online, in case you want to check it out. You can find it here: http://www.edge-online.com/features/why-next-car-game-creator-bugbear-is-going-it-alone-after-13-years-in-publishers-pockets/

They also wrote a nice piece about what's it like to mess around with NCG: http://www.edge-online.com/features/next-car-game-and-the-simple-pleasure-of-messy-driving/

Strange they used old NCG videos from Feb 23-24, no new video with sandpit and new driver. :(

The Independent did a small preview of Next Car Game, with a really positive spin. They conclude the piece with this:
"[...]it's clear this is the future of car games and it looks dented, with missing wheels and car parts scattered across the road. Perfect."

I'm no keyboard warrior with an ego to prove, I'm past that, and after reading the review I feel that journo is past some stuff also, unfortunately its research for an article,, which is semi important, and quite frankly I'm surprised you felt the need to publicise this limp review.

I shall begin my disection;-

"A working title and currently still in alpha, Bugbear have a long history with developing games in this explosive genre with the Flatout series, steadily released over the past decade. “Another destruction derby game? Why not just release it as the new Flatout?” I hear you cry! Well it's okay, stop crying, because one major feature that has distanced them from every other destruction derby game made. Soft body physics."

FO was never just a DD game, it also included vehicle damage affecting you, NCG isnt teams first "soft body" by your definition game.  I shall try to stop crying, whilst I realise that the name "Flatout" is owned by others.

"In the alpha you can already get a good feel of how the final game will play, with three different modes currently implemented: Pit Destruction, the usual and expected circle of chaos associated with the sport; Race, which has thee tracks flaunting how the cars handle across jumps, dips dives and over a longer period of time; and the final is an early-backer only playground mode. Separate to the game it allows you to take a car and drive it across a variety of jumps and other fun objects such as a giant novelty hammer, plinko machine and cannon, channeling your inner Evel Knievel meets Wile E Coyote."


Shame that BB as a team didnt offer a free tech demo, missed a trick there guys.

Could I also suggest you do a forum type thing, and maybe ask people how they would like the game to take shape.
It might be worth trying to build a "community" which may extend the lifetime of youre labours.

Seriously, I am tempted to ask this journo what he thought of your flatout 3, and if he had permission to use other peoples youtube footage ;)

If it brings more sales, I am all for it, I just despise shoddy journalism, lets have a catchy item title, and make up the rest type thing.

I live in the UK, and dont read the independent btw.

I've got a review from Car Throttle, including the new name as well:

Car games rarely give us the realistic effects of crash damage, but Wreckfest has it nailed. You won't regret playing this, that's for sure...

Ya, to help stop spammers from joining the forum and spamming links I would think. Or it because link missing the http://www. part.  ;)  OR this url has an issue with Bugbear forum. That big open space below is the link inside the url code. Link disappears. Is this what was happening with your post gizmo?



Had to paste link this way to show up in post:

Thanks for the link gizmo. :) Was nice to see Distance talk about and got a chuckle at vaporware Flatout 4. Good luck actually seeing FO4 get finish with bad publisher Strategy First behind the project.

Look like the guy doing the racing games more of an arcade racing fan. He not sure about Wreckfest direction yet, being more realistic.
