More on Crazy Car Championship
10:06 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Eurogamer has posted an article on Synaptic Soups' upcoming cross-platform racer, entitled Crazy Car Championship. The article provides a detailed overview of what Synaptic Soup is aiming for with this visually interesting title. Specifically, they want to make sure the game is extremely customizable and fun. In this article they discuss their development process and the way they want to blend many different styles from previous games, such as Mario Cart and Wipeout. Here is an excerpt:

Customisation plays a major part in the game, replacing the usual tinkering with ride heights and suspension stiffness that you find in hardcore driving sims with a range of weird and wonderful optional extras and temporary power-ups to take advantage of. "The components all have a strong visual effect on the cars, as well as a gameplay effect. For example, you might replace a set of chunky piston driven wheels with a set of powerful space-age thrusters. These cause your car to hover just above the ground, but also effect the car's traction significantly."
We would like to remind you that CCC might possibly make it to the Mac OS, as the engine it is based on has already been ported; the decision remains up to the publisher. Synaptic Soup has currently not chosen a publisher, but they are in negotiations with several interested parties. We'll keep you updated
