Update 2014-07-09

9 Juli 2014

The latest update for Next Car Game is now available, change log below:

  • Added Sandpit1 alternative route, both normal and reverse layouts.
  • Increased steering angle and retuned controller settings. Especially gamepad and keyboard controllers should be more responsive now.
  • Retuned all cars and suspension setups so that the cars would behave more realistically - with most suspension setups the cars now have a tendency to understeer while cornering unless grip is lost, at which point the cars will exhibit oversteer. However, except for the most extreme situations the oversteer should be manageable. In many cases different suspension setups now also have a significant effect on the car handling, so be sure to test them all to find your favorite!
  • Increased tarmac and gravel friction.
  • Reworked Stability Control profiles; the Full setting has more strength now while the Half setting should only counter for most serious errors by preventing from spinning out.
  • Retuned brake balance for all brake kits to tame the tendency to spin out when braking while cornering.
  • Implement a three second no-collision cooldown period for resetting the car.
  • Increased player advantage in car-to-car collisions.
  • Increased side and back strength for a number of vehicles.
  • Increased wheel strength for 01_American (American Muscle) to prevent it detaching too easily.
  • Reduced deform strength in minor impacts.
  • Added a few aggressive AI profiles to the pack.
  • Added Look Left and Look Right camera controls support for keyboard.
  • Removed the obsolete Reverse Camera keybinding, should fix cases in which the Look Back button was not working when Reverse Camera was binded.
  • Fixed an issue in which the vehicle strip in garage was out of screen boundaries when using extreme wide resolutions.
  • Reduced vertical size of the launcher window to make it fit nicely on certain laptop screens.
  • Set V-Sync to disabled by default.

As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts on the update!

Über das Spiel

Next Car Game is a new demolition derby themed racing game with soft-body damage modeling, sophisticated driving dynamics and in-depth vehicle upgrading, featuring both demolition derbies and more traditional track races. It’s all about fun, breakneck racing and over-the-top crashes.

Expect epic crashes and tight, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line on run-down racing tracks. Expect proper demolition derbies. Expect brand new ways for metal to bend and the signature once-in-the-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with true-to-life physics simulation.

It’s a motorsport, but not just any motorsport. It’s a motorsport with attitude.

Unique Racing Experience

First and foremost, we’re building a FUN racing game with PERSONALITY. It’s all about the stuff that really matters: varied tracks, cool cars, and the defining once-in-the-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with true-to-life physics simulation. If you’re familiar with our previous games, you already know what we’re aiming at: exhilarating racing action with sophisticated physics and damage modeling, only this time we’re upping the ante on almost every front. This is the game we envisioned way back in the early 2000s, only re-imagined for today’s technology and gaming standards.

Awesome Cars

The cars are old, cheap, banged up, patched together, rusty… just awesome! In short, our cars ooze with STYLE. You won’t find anything like them in other racing games. We’ve got variety, as well: everyone loves the old American heavy-hitters from the muscle car era, but we’re not neglecting the fun little European and Asian cars from the long-gone decades either. The best part is that you’ll be taking them apart and building them back up again in your garage; the career is as much about your garage and your project cars as it is about racing.

Exciting Engine

Our in-house ROMU engine is a hell-bent beast that's precision-engineered for high-speed, breakneck racing. We have also already implemented fully deformable soft body car damage, meaning that the cars will react to damage in a very tangible, convincing way. While we're focused on action, motorsport authenticity is not forgotten, either. To that end our engine is simulating vehicle dynamics in a very sophisticated fashion. Rolling resistances, casters and slip angles are definitely not ancient Greek to us, and you as the player will be the one benefiting from our expertise.


The current Early Access release contains four playable cars and a number of tracks, showcasing both white-knuckle track racing and explosive demolition derby action with 24 cars that will give you taste of things to come. During the coming months we’re going to give the game a lot of polish as well as implement many new exciting features, and all Early Access supporters have a unique opportunity to get involved in the development of the title!

We’ve also giving a playable Technology Sneak Peek 2.0 to all our Early Access supporters. The sneak peek features a playground that we use internally to test various features various like car damage and environment destruction. Version 2.0 includes new destructive machinery, more dynamic stuff to blow up, spectacular stunts and an awesome physics cannon that we use to play with our physics engine. With the physics cannon you too will now have a chance to cause mayhem to heart’s content by launching missiles, throwing stuff around and destroying the environment as well as the cars!

  • NEW: LAN multiplayer functionality!
  • A playable Technology Sneak Peek 2.0 - Have fun in the physics playground!
  • Four cars: American Muscle I & II, European Hatchback and American Sedan, each with unique handling traits.
  • A number of different performance and handling upgrades, replicating selected real-world parts.
  • Five race tracks including Tarmac, Sandpit and Figure 8, featuring both normal and reverse layouts.
  • Three different derby stadiums: large stadium, small stadium and a mudpit.
  • Race and derby game modes with up to (!) 24 cars, all with dynamic damage.
  • Soft-body car damage physics system that doesn't need a super computer.
  • Dynamic content that reacts realistically – fences and billboards break down, tires fly around.
  • In-game photo mode and replay.


Next Car Game is currently in early Pre-Alpha stage, and the Early Access version is going to serve as a basis on which we will continue building the game based on your feedback on what works and what doesn't. Throughout the Early Access phase we're going to gradually add more content and new features to the game, with some of the most important key features planned being:

  • Improved car damage and handling.
  • More cars, each with different stylings and performance.
  • More race tracks and derby stadiums with varying surfaces.
  • More dynamic content on the tracks to drive through and crash into.
  • Highly configurable multiplayer with a variety of modes.
  • Extensive player garage and car upgrading system.
  • In-game classifieds to buy and sell cars and parts.
  • Streamlined and polished user interface.
  • Improved graphics quality and performance.

We currently estimate that the title should reach a feature-complete state in 2014, with all key features implemented. Please note that all features mentioned here may be altered or removed during the development of the title if deemed necessary.

Ein wunderbarer Titel mit viel Potential und jetzt schon sicherem Platz auf meiner Liste der besten Rennspiele aller Zeiten
Zugegeben noch kann einem das Spiel nicht viel bieten, aber doch alle mal genug für den kurzen Spaß zwischendurch. Ich muss ehrlich gestehen, dass ich anfangs absolut enttäuscht war und mich sogar darüber geärgert habe über 20€ dafür gezahlt zu haben. So blieb das Spiel nach dem ersten mal anspielen gleich links liegen, jedoch schaute ich 2 Wochen später nocheinmal rein und entdeckte, dass die Entwickler ein gutes Stück weiter gekommen sind! Seither schaue Ich regelmäßig rein und schaue zu wie sich das Spiel langsam entwickelt.
Wer mit Next Car Game ein fertiges Spiel erwartet ist auf jeden Fall an der falschen Addresse, selbst für Early Access Spiele ist man zumindest auf Steam mehr gewohnt. Aber wer ein Fan der FlatOut Reihe ist, oder einfach nur so ein gutes Rennspiel spielen möchte und zudem interessiert an dem Entwicklungsprozess ist, ist mit dem Next Car Game gut bedient!

Es ist ein tolles Spiel mit extrem viel Potential! Wer jetzt meint die Grafik geht bei euch nicht und es würde laggen liegt falsch. Selbst bei meiner alter EVGA 580 und 4 Gb RAM kann man es sehr genießen die einzelnen Reifen oder eben Autos gesammt zu zertören.

Auch der eingeschweißte Rennfan kommt nicht zu knapp:

Mit verschiedenen und einer stetig wachsender Anzahl Level kann man auch schön die gut Reagierenden NPC´s besiegen.
Sie wechseln sich ab (soviele es halt gibt) und vorallem die Offroad Level gefallen mir sehr.
Es gibt auch einen Last-Surviver Modi in dem man gegen eine vorher bestimmte Anzahl NPC´s spielt.
Es gibt derzeit vier Wagen die man mittlerweile angenehm Editieren kann. Z.B. die Reifen etc.
Auch die Aussichten auf einen Multiplayer finde ich toll.

Dieses Spiel könnte dir gefallen wenn:

- Du Flatout oder andere Rennspiele toll findest.
- Du dich nicht daran störst, dass Fehler oder Gimmicks erst später gelöst oder eben hinzugefügt werden.
- Du auch ohne Uber-PC ein bisschen Rennspaß mit guter Grafik willst.
- Du nichts gegen drei Stunden Steuerung lernen hast, damit du sie perfekt beherrscht.

Von mir gibt´s ne Kaufempfehlung da es wirklich tolle Ansätze hat und ich hoffe es sich weiterhin so gut entwickelt!
Rennspaß garantiert!

Das Spiel befindet sich zwar noch in Entwicklung, kann aber schon jetzt begeistern!

Was "Next Cargame" anderen Rennspielen, wie bereits zu seiner Zeit "Flatout", voraus hat, ist die Physikdarstellung, so wie die Einzigartigkeit jedes Rennens durch eine komplett zerstörbare Umwelt. Außerdem ist es möglich nach dem Rennen ein vollständig steuerbares Replay anzuschauen. Dabei kann man sich jeden einzelnen Crash noch einmal in verlangsamter Zeitdarstellung ansehen, verschiedene Effekte beisteuern und die entstandenen Bilder speichern.

Außerdem gibt es zur Zeit schon 4 verschiedene Rennstrecken und 3 Crash-Derby Stadiums, sowie 3 verschiedene Autos.
Das ganze wird in der Entwicklungszeit ständig weiter ergänzt.
Der momentane Umfang ist für aktuell 16,07 EUR schon ziemlich groß. (wird aber noch viel größer)

Klare Kaufempfehlung von mir! (unterstützt die Entwickler)

Auch wenn das Spiel noch in seiner Anfangsphase ist, selten so ein spaßiges Spiel gespielt! Allein die Rennen in einem Achterkurs in welchem nur ein paar der Autos ins Ziel kommen. Es muss noch viel an der KI gearbeitet werden , aber ich freu mich aufs fertige Spiel!

Eines der besten Rennspiele seit langem. Der Umfang ist noch ziemlich mager wegen dem Pre Alpha Status macht aber schon so viel Spaß das ich 20 Stunden in das Spiel investiert habe. Ich empfehle jedem Rennspiel und vorallem Flatout Fans sich das SPiel zu kaufen. Wer lust hat kann sich ja meine Videos auf Youtube anschauen wo ich näher auf das SPiel eingehe.
