Gas Guzzlers Announced

Pandora Studio announces Gas Guzzlers, a "fast-paced addictive combat racing game for the PC" due for release in the third quarter of this year. Gamepires Twitter feed points the way to this gallery with some screenshots, which are also posted on the game's Facebook page. Here's a bit on the game:

The game is played from the “behind the car“ camera perspective and features many different vehicles, weapons, upgrades, on-track bonuses as well as distinctive and astonishing environments. Player starts with low performance vehicle and gradually works his way up by earning money in a series of challenging races. Along with developing his driving and fighting skills, player has to invest his hard earned money wisely to grab the chance for driving on the road to glory. The game is expected to be released in Q3/2011.

It catapults players into a stunning recreation of various challenging environments where fierce competition ravages their will to survive and win. Players will use the powers of the gas, tyre and engine to be faster, be stronger and be quicker than their competitors, in an attempt to move up with their car and weapons. Gas Guzzlers is the first game built on Pandora Studio's new state-of-the-art game engine „PranaEngine“

Like Auto Assault?

I don't know exactly why it didn't succeed, but it was tried :)

Auto Assault didn't succeed because of the following, in my opinion:

1. It was very clear that the towns were tacked on at the last second.
2. The game was not particularly fun as it turned in a circle-strafe fest.
3. The environment and lore was very, very thin. No real hook to get you involved.
4. The secondary ambiance of the world, audio, was also very thin.
5. Like all grindfest MMOs, there were far too many parts that had fractional value higher than what you already possessed.

With Interstate '76, it did all of those things very well. That's why it was memorable and Auto Assault has been largely forgotten.
