Looks amazing, like a HD Scud Race or Daytona 2.

The Cars and everything look very good.

But the Girl character design looks awful in my opinion.

Looks great. Worrying though that he claims he hasn't been able to get the car handling to feel properly yet, since that's the most important thing in the entire game. I wouldnt donate for that reason. But still especially for a 1 or 2 man project it looks fantastic.

Haha, she looks like she's looking back at the 40-year-old dorks who are playing it.

She does look miffed that you might chose to drive a pretend car instead of her. To be fair there are loads of women in real life and on the telly whose character design is far worse.

To 90's videogamers, that look of repulsion is simply what a girl's face looks like.

I like the way that the distance from the floor to her vagoogoo represents almost two thirds of her total height. If she were a real human, she would do presenting with a sneer of disdain in her spare time. By profession she'd be a sprinter, or maybe relay runner. She looks like she could handle a baton. :fastlove:

I backed this on Kickstarter at the time. Initially very exceited,but they've been so quiet with demonstrating stuff until this video that I suspect they've bitten off more than they can chew. Fingers crossed.

In the December KS backers update there were lots of pics of her replacement. Looks a lot better.

I like the track at 2:17 in the video.
Dare I say it, that the game looks too garish?
