Things on Wheels, the game EVERY Xbox owner has been waiting for since day one

0

SouthPeak Games has announced a new RC Racing called Things on Wheels coming out for XBLA and PC. It's set to come out this Summer with races taking place within a house. Apparently, Xbox owners have been asking for a game just like this since day one:

ToW is what the Xbox LIVE Arcade community has been asking for since day one. It’s a competitive racing game with bits of fun and lots of interactivity if you just want to goof around. After Mad Tracks, we had to concentrate on just racing, but always with a twist,” said Denis Bourdain, big wig at Load Inc. “It’s a fresh racing experience we built on everything we’ve learned in the past 12 years, and it will rock you! We’re very proud to be working with one of the sexiest publishers today. All of our developer friends are just plain jealous. SouthPeak rules!”

Really? Xbox owners have been wanting yet another RC racing game since the release of the 360? Wow, I think I should quit Destructoid right now. I obviously haven't been paying attention to what Xbox, nay, any sane videogamer wants. 

This is also the first time I've ever heard of a publisher being called sexy. I guess you could consider SouthPeak sexy if you imagine their logo of the mountains as breasts. Breasts are sexy. And tasty

SOUTHPEAK GETS WHEELS, GOES LIVE 

Things on Wheels, Over-the-Top RC Racing Action,

Coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade and Windows-based PCs

Grapevine, Texas – January 30, 2008 – SouthPeak Games has announced its first foray onto Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft with Things On Wheels (ToW). ToW is an accessible, pure arcade title placing players at the helm of radio-controlled (“RC”) cars as they race through a gigantic Florida Art Deco house filled with “tracks” comprised of everyday household items – and more. Developed by experienced Xbox LIVE Arcade alumni Load Inc., ToW promises to deliver plenty of RC racing fun when released in summer 2008. ToW has also been confirmed for release on Windows-based PCs,

“Load Inc. wanted to do something brand new with the racing genre, and this really appealed to us,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “Competing with real life remote control cars is great fun, so why not do it in a videogame? ToW delivers the same reckless thrill.” 

Races in ToW take place on nonlinear tracks that go from room to room in an expansive house. Normal, everyday objects become obstacles and hazards for player’s miniature vehicles to race through. Any challenge could have a player picking up speed in the straightaway of the foyer, dodging the searing coils of the electric stove, catching some air to clear a stack of magazines in the way, and thousands of other possibilities.
