What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We know from our other games that it’s the input of our players that helps shape our games into the best experiences they can be. We hope that by listening to our players during Early Access, we’ll be able to make NEW STAR GP a better game, with player input not only guiding our plans on refining the current experience, but also on adding new content and features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect NEW STAR GP to be in Early Access for between two and four months, but we remain flexible in responding to players’ thoughts and feedback. Our aim with Early Access is above all to make the game as enjoyable and compelling an experience as it can be.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to evolve the CAREER MODE in the early access version of NEW STAR GP to include future decades of racing in addition to the 80's and 90's, we also hope to add new cars and new tracks, new track configurations on existing tracks, new rivals and rival mechanics. Additionally we are also planning to add further CHAMPIONSHIP MODE content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Single player CAREER MODE currently includes two decades of racing: the 80s and 90s. That equates to 56 individual race events and takes in such iconic racing venues as Brisbane, Quebec, and Tokyo. Single and multi-player CHAMPIONSHIP MODE features three Championships to play in either single player, or multiplayer with up to three friends simultaneously.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We expect the price to increase on full release based on the new content added.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Early Access is an important opportunity for us to listen to what the game community has to say about the game experience while we’re still developing it, and to use that feedback to refine what we’ve already made and guide the addition of any new content. As well as listening to player feedback on the Steam forums and social media, we hope that our Early Access players will join our Discord where we have channels for bug reporting and for suggesting things to improve the game.”

About This Game

NEW STAR GP is the arcade racing game where every decision counts - on and off the track! You take control of your own motorsport team, guide your team’s technological development, plan your race strategy, take the wheel, and drive to victory! With a simple but deep gameplay experience and appealing retro visuals, NEW STAR GP puts you in the driving seat for every twist and turn as you manage and race your team through decades of racing, from the 1980s all the way to the present day!


Beautifully rendered retro looks and a driving retro soundtrack that bring back fond memories of the iconic racing games of the 1990s.


A pick-up-and-play arcade driving experience that has more depth than you think. While anyone can take the wheel and have success, those who want to truly master the game will want to make use of tyre choice and wear, component reliability, slipstreaming opponents, fuel load, and even pit strategy. Anything can happen in races, from catastrophic component failures and dynamic weather changes, to tyre blowouts and multi-car pileups.


Compete in GPs, Elimination Races, Time Trials, Checkpoint Races, and one-on-one Rival Races. In between events, choose how to upgrade your car, or which staff perks to equip: from sponsored car components to faster pit stops. When you’ve won a season, progress to the next decade of racing and face a new set of opponents and challenges in a brand new car!


Race a myriad of events across the decades at some of the most iconic racing locations around the world. Earn rewards for setting personal bests!


Enjoy the game with your friends with a fun split-screen social multiplayer mode.
Play with 2, 3, or 4 players, choose your car, driver, handicap, and play mode, and any of the tracks to compete on. Points carry over from event to event, so it’s as easy to play one race as it is to play a whole season of racing together.
