If you ever enjoyed the FlatOut series of games , you will certainly enjoy Finnish Bugbear Entertainment’s new driving game called “Next Car Game” .
After working on the “Ridge Racer Unbounded” console racer, Bugbear Entertainment is going back to its roots. A good solid next generation, physics-based Destruction Derby game that is being developed using their inhouse Game Engine called ROMU. The engine is capable of some impressive vehicular destruction. Initially, the title will be released for PC as soon as early spring 2014, but if enough development money can be raised, Nex Car Game might appear on the Xbox and PlayStation consoles.
You can Sign up for the BugBear Newsletter here and get a free demo version of the Technology Sneak Peek. The free version contains a limited version of the playground scene.
The sneak peek lets players run one of 24 cars through a “playground” that was used for testing the vehicle and environmental damage mechanics of the game. Note that this sneak peek does not represent the gameplay and quality of the final game. In the final game the action will take place on many locations including a number of race tracks and derby arenas.

BugBear Press Release:
Helsinki, Finland – January 3, 2014 – Holiday season is an exciting time for everyone, but for us at Bugbear it was even more so. Only a couple of days before Christmas, we released the very first Early Access version of our Next Car Game, with the aim of giving our faithful fans something to enjoy during the holidays.
It was the first time we were going to show the game to everyone, and we were very anxious to hear the feedback, but the game took the Internet by storm: the first Early Access release doubled the sales of the title during the Christmas week! Last autumn, we had a stretch of bad luck with our Kickstarter campaign, and it didn’t reach the goal we were aiming for. Even so, we didn’t lose our faith in the game and wanted to get it in the hands of the players as soon as possible. And thanks to our great supporters, we really couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas present – much to our surprise, we reached and actually topped our original campaign funding goal in just week! Not only that, but the free demo we released a couple of days later has been downloaded over 50,000 times, and the gameplay video posted on the popular Nerd³ Youtube channel has already nearly 500,000 views.
All this is of course a testament to how awesome crowd of supporters we are fortunate enough to have. Although our game is still at a pretty early stage, and as such, contains many missing features and numerous bugs, the players have loved what we already got and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. We’ve already received a plenty of smart suggestions for future improvements, some of which will of course find their way into the final game. During the coming months we’re going to give the game a lot of polish as well as implement new exciting features, and our Early Access supporters have an opportunity to experience the game as it develops and get involved in the development!
