Bumper Cars takes several great characters from around the Half-Life community and pits them against each other for the first time ever. Naturally you win by “bumping” your opponent to his death. Of course there is a bit more to it than that. In fact you should expect a few little surprises along the way.

modDB.com For those who love Bumper Cars! State your real name, job, place where you are from and age!

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander David "DeathToll_David" Highlander, pretty much do everything in the mod except the more difficult coding and some graphics. I'm 27 and from Houston, TX

modDB.com Bumper Cars was thought up when? Why Bumper Cars? Is the mod like another game or mod in your opinion?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander Almost a year to the day. The mod is nothing like any other game out there and that is the mystic of it. Long time players of Half-Life are tired of the same old clones popping up everywhere. That is why the off-the-wall mods are so popular these days.

modDB.com How long have you been working on Bumper Cars?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander I've been working on core parts (models, sprites, graphics, etc) for about a year. Once I got everything done I had a coder get to work. I guess that was about 4 months or so ago.

modDB.com Describe the best feature in the mod in your opinion? What should the person look for that they might miss?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander It's difficult to narrow one thing down. I'd have to say though that the fact that there is no HUD is what I like the most. You get to see the entire screen at once with nothing blocking your view.

modDB.com Describe the weapons (if any) and what the weapon you will use the most and why?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander There are no weapons of the traditional type and there never will be. The main items in the game are called power-ups and any future release will have power-ups that directly affect the ability to drive; for example, oil slicks, spikes, acid, road blocks, etc. I plan to keep the game as different as possible so you will never see a weapon that you can "aim and fire"

modDB.com How is the damage system in Bumper Cars?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander No damage at all. You literally play until you get knocked off a map or into something that can kill you.

modDB.com Gameplays what are they in Bumper Cars?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander Right now just straight out death-match. But there are other modes planned such as run down the grunt, king of the hill, capture the cotton candy, etc.

modDB.com I see on the site: some nice maps who helped and names please?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander Wow so many people contributed a map that I would be hard pressed to remember them all. That is why I love our small little community. Everyone has contributed in some way. If I had to single someone out it would be Dragon. His two maps (bc_island and bc_nukeplant) are fantastic. Dragon also hosts our official server at his CyberCafe LanLizards (www.lanlizards.com)

modDB.com Explain how the player classes will work and why I should be one over the other in your opinion:

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander No class is different from any other. Basically you choose your favorite model and jump right in. Which is why there are so many. Sixteen to be exact.

modDB.com What mods do you like in Half Life?

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander International Online Soccer, Vampire Slayer, and the usual DoD, NS, are all that I play.

modDB.com Final thoughts:

David "DeathToll_David" Highlander I just hope everyone enjoys the mod and much as we did making it.

I love the physics in the mod. The game feel is nice. Its a fun mod but history shows comical mods not lasting long. I think this one will be known as the mod to look at for fun mods. Box wars was the start of it all and monkey strike will be fun but this makes all coming fun mods out there double checking there work for the fun factor!
