Nitronic Rush follow-up looks for funding via Kickstarter


10:45 AM on 10.22.2012



Last year the impossible happened: Nitronic Rush dethroned San Francisco Rush 2049 for being the best futuristic racer with "Rush" in the title. Now the developer is going to do a retail victory lap with spiritual successor Distance, but they need your help first. Like, $125,000 worth of your help.

Considering the level of quality this group achieved as students at DigiPen with the excellent (and free!) Nitronic Rush, the promise of making a more ambitious follow-up with more money and staff is exciting. Refract Studio was formed by three of the main developers of Nitronic Rush and now they want to make their wishlist of ideas for that game come true with Distance.

From the game's official website:

"We're building Distance from the ground up. This allows us to now include many fan-requested features like LAN/Online multiplayer, a powerful new level editor, the ability to be on other distribution platforms (like Steam, Origin, etc), and tons of more content!"

There isn't another game on the market that captures the "survival racing" approach of Nitronic Rush, so I hope this project receives funding. I feel compelled to donate since I had such a blast with the first game. Why not download the free game and see if you feel the same?

Review: Steins;Gate

Time travel is infinitely more interesting once you leave the trappings of the TARDIS or any one of those familiar (some would say hackneyed) science fiction mainstays behind. Steins;Gate, the visual novel that inspired a ...more

Review: Putty Squad

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.more
