A race to funding
Developers Repixel8 and CGA Games are excited to announce that Formula Retro Racing: World Tour is heading to Kickstarter this February. Following exciting developments behind the scenes, the team is now aiming to make World Tour even bigger than its predecessor with additional gameplay mechanics, potential tracks and a physical release.
The Kickstarter campaign, which launches February 1st, aims to expand the original vision of the game by reaching a funding goal of £10,000 ($12,369 / €11,423) This additional funding will be invested in adding extra content which includes online multiplayer, new content created from backer suggestions and more.
Backer levels range from digital versions of the game, through to having a direct influence by designing tracks with support from the developers. Backers can also choose to support the game and receive a physical copy at launch on PS4, PS5 or the Nintendo Switch.
Announced late last year, Formula Retro Racing: World Tour is a retro racer updated for modern tastes. Taking visual inspiration from iconic 90s titles like Virtua Racer, World Tour builds on its legacy by adding realistic driving and destruction physics, crisp and colorful 4K visuals with 60fps performance and a selection of gameplay modes. Staying true to genre expectations, World Tour also features split-screen multiplayer, enabling up to four players to huddle around the TV and duke it out to see who is the fastest.
