Candella Software has launched
, a boat stunt-racing game they plan to bring to Windows,
Linux, and OS X if their fundraising campaign can generate the £6,600 they seek
for its development. Here's what they have in mind:
Harking back to the
classic boat racing games of the 1980’s and 1990’s, Waveryder combines stunning
cutting-edge visuals and exciting arcade-style gameplay. Set in exceptionally
detailed photorealistic real-world locations such as Venice, Lake Zurich,
Niagara Falls, Egypt, Paris, London, Goa, and Prague, Waveryder pushes modern PC
hardware to its limits.
In addition to arcade racing, the game also features a dedicated Stunt Mode.
Available in both singleplayer and multiplayer, Waveryder’s unique stunt mode
allows players to engage turbo and leap over some of the most stunning bridges
in the world. These iconic bridges include the Calatrava Bridge (Venice), Tower
Bridge (London), Charles Bridge (Prague) and Pont Neuf (Paris).
As the boats leap over the bridges, time slows down, allowing players to execute
multiple acrobatic stunts. Based on the quality of their stunts, players receive
achievement points and unlock trophies. All achievement points can be uploaded
to a global leaderboard.
