No Brakes: X Racing Announced

The Exotypos Homepage (thanks Frans) reveals development of No Brakes: X Racing, an independently developed arcade racing game offering support for advanced graphics features like pixel shaders 2.0 and HDR lighting. Here's a bit:
No Brakes: X Racing is an arcade racing game. All classes of cars from old RWD to modern sportcars. There are highway tracks with springboard, bridges and other barriers. Each car has its own physics model so have to get physical experience of driving each of them to win the race. Modern physics model with oversteer&understeer; the side-slip; some elements of driving strategy.

Another thing, when I think of a car I want to drive in a racing game, it's not a 4-door hatchback sedan. Looks like an AMC Pacer. What the hell are they thinking releasing those screenshots?

Something along the lines of 'quick, the investors visit tomorrow!', I'd imagine.

You would think if it's being sold on "No Brakes" that it would be a little more crazy, like going off-road through trees, Moose running out of the way, campers getting run over, crazy stuff like that.

The pics look horrible but its not out yet so hopfully they will refine it more. One thing did get me though, even recommened specs saids DirectX 8.1+. If its using HDR you'd think they put higher specs. Let alone it 16MB card is a minimum.

Nothing like a driving game with modern physics, understeer and oversteer modeled...but no brakes.

Sounds genius.

I hate to be negative and disparage a small independent developer, but this game visually looks terrible. I really hope for their sake that in this case the graphics don't make the entire game.

Considering the mainpage sells the game on graphics, the game does *not* look very eye-catching...

I had exactly the same thought. Particularly the lack of FSAA makes it even worse.
