It’s both an ox and a moron, but there’s a brand new trailer for the crowd-funded racer showing beastly speed machines racing around tracks, only in slow motion..making them look like they’re travelling at a regular speed, I suppose. 

Developer Slightly Mad Studios’ Project Cars is a crowd-funded initiative, that was originally planned to hit the PC, PS3,Xbox 360 and Wii U after its announcement 3 years ago. However regular delays and the introduction of new hardware have meant that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have been shelved in favour of their newer counterparts. The game will also be getting Oculus Rift support, and Project Morpheus VR support on the PlayStation 4.

By my calculations, that means we’ll finally see the game released sometime in 2023 – though it’s currently scheduled for release this November.  It promises to be an authentic racing simulator, offering the sort of things car junkies raised on petrol fumes crave in their digital entertainment. expect a wealth of real cars and track locations, night lighting, tire deformation, dynamic weather, online multiplayer and pit-to-car radio features.

"Jump into the seat of a kart and forge a career with the aim of one day winning a prestigious 24hr race in a LM Prototype car, battle bumper-to-bumper for a third consecutive championship in the world of Touring, or simply take an exotic supercar out for a beautiful drive along the coast," the studio says of its new trailer, titled “The Ultimate Driver Journey”

Slightly Mad Studios promises that all of this is from in-game footage, and it’s rather impressive stuff.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
