Wipeout Meets Gran Turismo
We love the high speed thrills of a Future Racer, and there's nothing like the immersive racing experience of a realistic Racing Sim, which got us thinking "What would happen if we combine the best of both genres and made a Future Physics Racer?"
It's fast; it's easy to play; it's hard to master and it's a whole lot of fun!
It's like taking your high powered super car into a waterslide, kicking it into overdrive and then hitting the nitrous.
Proving the Unreal
It's said that, theoretically, a current day racing car would be able to drive upside down at high speeds. Here's an article by Formula One
Putting all the pieces together in a simulator, it turns out that this urban myth is actually true, but not so fun with a current day vehicle.
Next, develop an engine with 1000+ bhp, re-engineered suspension, purpose built tyres, fully adjustable aerodynamics and an ECU programmed to help it all work together, and you end up with a racing experience with the perfect mix of terrifying and terrific.
Racing Precision vs Racing Strategy
Collect resources as you drive (KERS) and spend it on either boosting or upgrading your vehicle during race-time. The right strategy might see you fall behind the field as you enact your build strategy and then drive double time to smoke them on the last lap to steal victory at the line.
Tournaments & Team Battles
Compete as an individual racer in your class to vie for the championship, or battle it out team v team with unique 'track/sector ownership' mechanics that will highlight a well oiled and orchestrated team.
But while you can now drive upside down, things do get twitchy when gravity's working against you, so use it with care! The faster you go the more downforce you create, so your ideal line will depend on your speed.
An important racing technique is to 'look through the corner', and this is especially true in a racer where corners can now be diving downwards or arcing up and over your shoulder, so the fact that the fastest racing times so far have been set in VR is perhaps of little surprise.
Share your track creations online with other track builders and racers and your tracks could find their way into the championship series.
N.B. Performance upgrades are race-time game resource only spends.
