22 Mar

We already told you that at PAX game devs just go crazy, so here we are again! Capybara Games and Double Fine Production are sharing the same booth at this week’s PAX East, so they decided to release a special retail version of the same boundle you can buy on Steam. This special edition will be limited to only 200 copies and will be available only at their shared PAX booth.

The box will contain all the games from the Steam pack, plus a very cool gem: the two games studios teamed up to develop a racer, called Capy Fine Racing GP and featuring all the characters from both companies. But this isn’t all, indeed the racing game will be released on floppy disk…yep, you heard it right, old school 1.44 MB floppy disk!

This is what Capy co-founder Nathan Vella has told to EDGE regarding the co-developed racing game:

“Ken Yeung and Vic Nguyen made a game called Capy Fine Racing GP, which is a little jokey – but still rad fun – OutRun-style racer staring Capy and Double Fine characters. The game will be released on the 3.5″ floppies that come inside the Capy and Double Fine limited edition boxed bundle, AKA the retail version of the Steam bundle that we just launched which includes both studios’ Steam games. We only made 200 boxes, and even then some of the floppies might not work, but the people who buy them will be allowed and encouraged to share the game.

It’s just something we did for pure fun and loving the idea of doing cool shit with our friends, in the spirit of the Capy Double Fine PAX combo. While it’s totally a real game, it’s also not at all a real game.”

If you are at PAX right now, you definitely should try to put your hands on one of those limited edition boxes! Good luck!

The 90’s Arcade Racer has been fully founded on Kickstarter

12 Feb

We are very happy to share with you the news that The 90’s Arcade Racer has reached its goal (just $10k) on Kickstarter!

What are we talking about? The 90’s Arcade Racer is a racing game inspired by the great arcade racers of the 90’s, in particular it takes inspiration from some SEGA‘s materpieces, like Scud Race, Daytona USA and Indy 500.

The goal of Antonis Pelekanos (aka Pelikan13), designer of the game in collaboration with Nicalis, is to recreate the feeling those games evoked from players by maintaining the colorful, vibrant look and sense of speed but with modern visuals and car handling models. Basically a pure nostalgia-bath!

The Kickstarter project has been fully founded (but you can still give him some money if you want), so it is going to be made for real, and this is awesome!

The game will be available for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux and Wii U on a TBA date. Stay tuned.
