Alpha/Beta testers wanted for Destruction Derby type game (steam key giveaway)

Post by MuscleCarFreak »

Hi Carma-Fans,

some might know me (musclecarfreak / mcf) back from the Carma 2 modding days.

Anyhow, after being a bit disappointed by Reincarnation/Max Damage and also Wreckfest (don't get me wrong, I enjoy those games, yet they didn't really turn out the way I wanted them to) I decided to make my own crash racing game, because eh, no big deal right?

Its main premise and overall look is very much inspired by the first Destruction Derby game, but it also takes a lot of gameplay elements from Carmageddon, Flatout 2, Demolition Racer, Test Drive: Eve of Destruction...

Basically, it is supposed to be a sort of "best of" of all 90s/00s arcade crash racers I ever played.

Well it's quite some work for a single person, but I'm coming along well and plan to release it this year.

I have the basic arcade mode (a.k.a. single race mode) implemented and ready as a closed alpha on steam.

I would be very grateful for some alpha testers to get feedback on gameplay, bugs and performance.

So if you're interested, just write in this topic and I PM you a steam key.

You can keep the game and get the final version when it comes out!

Also please name your system specs (CPU,GPU,RAM,OS).

Here are 2 teaser images:




I'd be glad to hear from you!

Thanks Fr0nt, yeah I really tried to capture the feel of DD1 and many racers of that area, so I avoided any post process overkill or over-polish and went for a colorful, simple (but hopefully not too simple) look.

Do you want a key too? No obligations, some quick feedback would be more than enough.

Hi luckbiturbo! Thanks for your interest.

To make it clear, I am in no way associated with the Carmagedden developers (Stainless), I'm "just" a big Carma fan who develops this little indie title on his own (with a little help here and there).

I'll gladly provide you with a key, check your inbox soon.

That Frogbyte Lan Party sounds very cool! LAN or Online Multiplayer is far down on the roadmap right now, maybe even after the release, it depends on how much interest/demand there is, because it will be a lot of work that would be in vain if there are only 3 people playing.

Never the less, if I dial in the scoring/balancing well and maybe a team vs. team mode, I think this game has potential as a MP or even eSport title (kind of like Rocket League).

Hi MuscleCarF... ,

I hope the best for this project. Off course is a good project. More "ignorant" is the game and more fun it will be XD.

See you soon!

Hey Excidium, I'm very interested in how the game runs on (somewhat) older hardware like yours, so that's perfect for testing. Please play around a bit with the settings in the graphics menu and tell me if you can get a smooth enough performance. There are also some tracks and parts of tracks that are more demanding than others.

Check your inbox :) .

yes sure, i will check it out.

just dont make the damage system the same as DD1, it was hard to stay alive :D

and if you make race tracks, make sure you include a track like the one with the jump before the big drop in DD2, loved that part of the track. ;)

Yeah I try to make it not as punishing as DD1 or DD2 or even Demolition Racer (I played through all of these as preparation for this game ;) a lot of reloading save games involved...)

In fact, I use the logic of Flatout 2 which is sort of unrealistic but cool from a gameplay point of view: When two cars crash, the faster one gets the score and no damage, the slower one gets the damage but no score.

That means if you keep a good pace and avoid being hit by faster cars, you can last quite long.

I will explain this system better in-game at some point, for now you just have to take my word for it ;) .

I also love the canyon track of DD2, however my game is very close to DD1 even in track design, so most of the tracks are simply flat, yet there are additional ramps to spice things up in the mid- and high-difficulty levels.

Hey guys,

I uploaded a small update today.

There are 3 changes that I am kind of curious about, would be cool if you could test them and give feedback:

1) I reworked the scoring system a little bit, now you get points for every position except last (not only top 5) and I ditched the bonuses for checkpoints. I hope this makes the racing and crashing part of scoring a bit more even, although it will always be a game that focuses more on crashes and rewards recklessness ;) .

2) I integrated the steam API and you should now see your avatar and user name in the result screen. Please tell me if anything looks odd (name too long for example)

3) I added some wet street effects to the city level. I hope they don't have that much of a performance impact - would be cool if you could verify this.

Hey twisted and robert_raw, sorry but I rather wait till the next alpha/beta phase, I marked your user names though and will make sure you get invited.

I think it will be some time late in July when I will have a bigger update with the campaign modus implemented and most of the gameplay features completed.
