Hey Flatout fans, Bugbear been working on their new derby/racing game, working title "Next Car Game", for now. Bugbear is self-publishing this time around, since publishers don't think there a market for a "Flatout" style, no rules racing game, Bugbear wants to prove them wrong and make a game Bugbear and Flatout fanatics can be proud of!

To that end, Bugbear started a Kickstarter page November 1:

Next Car Game: A Motorsport With Attitude!

Thursday, Nov 7, Bugbear posted an update at the Kickstarter page and shocked the Flatout community: Smiley

"Hey, everyone!
Since we’re currently running a Kickstarter campaign for our Next Car
Game, we thought it would be a great time to share something very
special with you.

You can now download a prototype that we created over 10 years ago that has never been shown publicly. The prototype is a little rough around the edges, but it served as an initial actualization of our vision for a reckless racing game, and despite the humble beginnings, it later grew into a game franchise loved by millions of fans."

Here pic of the Beetle of Flatout lore that been talk about in many a Flatout forum over the years:

Also Bugbear looking to be friendly to modders this go around according to Bugbear Dev, Joonas Laakso:

"We have decided to support modding as we recognize it’s a large part of why FlatOut is still known and played today. How exactly that’s going to work we don’t know yet, but the goal is to have user-created tracks and cars available, though Steam Workshop or otherwise. We’re likely not going to ship actual editors, but rather tools you can use to export models into
the game."

And if you got the modding itch right now, go to Bugbear Kickstarter page and
download Bugbear Retro Demo 2002, now for free. The Retro Demo is unpack.
Have some fun tweaking the game files in the \data folder. :)

Note: Bugbear has said,

I take it you were trying to download this file:

Click to download FOJ_CommunityMod_Setup.exe if it doesn't start automatically or try another mirror.

I tried downloading file logged in and logged out and I was able to download exe file both times.

Are you logged in as an admin in your Windows? If not, your browser may be stopping you from downloading an exe file from the Internet. My Avast ask me if I really wanted to download this file and I had to tell it yes.

Also the installer only works on Community Mod parts 1-3. Will not unpack the rar files for parts 4 and part 5 or the other carpacks.

Would be best to get free version of WinRar so can unpack all the files in the download section.

If you have not heard yet, Bugbear has sent out emails Saturday to those that have [url=]pre-order the Next Car Game[/url], with a link to Steam key for NCG pre-alpha. The pre-alpha has the muscle car from Sneak Peek demo and also the small Euro car. There 1 derby pit, 1 dirt track and 1 tarmac track. Can select 12 car or 24 car race or derby.

Here a post from a Bugbear Dev:

Janne wrote:
Thanks guys, we're really happy to hear you're having such a great experience. To be honest, we didn't have too much time for testing to get the release out in time for the holidays, so we were a bit anxious about the quality of the build. Like I think I already stated elsewhere, there are quite a few issues that need to be fixed, but luckily they should not be too detrimental to the experience at this point.

We're also really happy that the first build is finally out because it means that we have pretty much nailed all the boring (to any of our coders reading this, sorry!) stuff and can finally concentrate on building the game around the base we now have. That means more tracks with more content, more cars, proper upgrading, better driving dynamics, and so on, and of course a lot of fine-tuning to everything that we already have.

Of course you guys will be first ones to enjoy all the improvements first-hand with our future Early Access releases.

Here an update:

This got posted Sunday over at Bugbear forum:

24 cars on track - GREAT! And a quick question

"Janne wrote:
Well, more cars was one thing that you guys were asking, wasn't it? :D

Unless something major comes up, we will keep the 24 cars for the full game at least for offline play. We have been already testing track races and derbies with the full grid of 24 cars, and thanks to our efficient tech, the performance hit is surprisingly minor. The chief problem is that, as you can imagine, the tracks get extremely crowded since most of them have been designed for a lesser amount of cars, so the going gets quickly very rough. But of course that's something that can be worked around, so it's not really going to pose a problem.

Online is something that we cannot confirm yet.


Here a good video of guy enjoying the sneak peek video:

Big news - 24 car derbys coming to NCG?

After having some fun with Bugbear sneak peek demo release Friday, had to go catchup on my Bugbear forum reading. A lot of new faces and posts thanks to demo.

I found this post and had to ask:

**Will we get 24 car derbys offline?**

Playable technology sneak peek available now!:

As for the sneak peek, great to hear it seems to be running fine for most of you. We're pretty proud how cost-efficient our engine is even with a full grid on 24 cars, every single one having the same advance damage physics. That has always been one of our goals because we really want to have a LOT of action and keep the game playable even without a super computer.


So can Bugbear answer the BIG $24 question or is it to soon to ask?

**Will we get 24 car derbys offline?**

I know it not going happen online, but demo does show players with good PC hardware can handle 24 car derbys offline. And if have slider, player can see how many cars his computer can handle. This maybe would be a problem for career mode, put I think we would be OK if could do it just in quick derby mode.

Here Bugbear response to my question:

Unless we encounter some unexpected problems, then sure. It adds plenty of fun!

Here it is, Bugbear has release video of some ingame racing on a dirt track. :)

Note: This is pre-alpha build of Next Car Game.

Quote:Team Bugbear -
This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for: we’re finally ready to show you some proper racing action on a dirt track! Here we are testing with a powerful rear-wheel drive car how our handling works on gravel, and we’re glad to let you know that it feels SUPERB!

Thanks to our great physics, you really get the full white-knuckle racing experience with Next Car Game, if that’s what you prefer. On the other hand, if you’re a budding race car driver, you can still enjoy the game (and remain competitive!) by enabling a selection of driving aids.

Please note that the game is still very much work-in-progress, and what you see is not representative of the final quality. For example the track has not been properly decorated yet, and there’s a lot of additional polish that’s going to be done on it. Also, the player car damage has been disabled for the demonstration purposes.

Check out the video on our Kickstarter page and let us know what you think!

As you know, we still have a plenty of distance to cover if we’re going to succeed with our Kickstarter campaign, but you can help us meet our goal. Now it’s time for the racing game fans to unite and show us that you want a game like Next Car Game! Our team is having great fun playing the game, and we feel that no other game can match the amazing racing experience offered by Next Car Game. We can’t wait to share it with you!

Go Purple!

Here some new info about NCG pre-oders:

will there be any difference between those who purchased on steam and those who purchased on your website?? i got the wrecker edition which gives me a bonus car

We're not sure yet how we're going to structure the Steam Early Access. Likely it's a one size fits all deal (low price and just the game); if you want the good stuff, you need to pre-order from us. We really prefer pre-orders from us as that leaves us with considerably more of the money.

Pre-orders from us do come with Steam keys now that we're through Greenlight (once we have a Steam build available, naturally).
