So the Nitronic Rush guys have a kickstarter for a sequel/spiritual sucessor- They are only asking for $125 000 and $10 000 are already in. They have a video with CliffyB but WAIT don't go, he doesn't appear much.
It will have multiplayer and LAN, mod support, PC/Mac versions and it will be made on Unity, so a Linux version is possible.
$15 will get you into the beta, $30 for two copies of the game.

Torcht will be returning to do the soundtrack, so it's instabacking for me.

I feel obliged to back just based on how excellent Nitronic Rush was. Really hope they are bringing the announcer back.

Cool! Thanks for posting this somini! I loved NR, and this next installment defenitely looks like it'll be worth 15 bucks. :)

$15 minimum to get the game? Hell, even NR's soundtrack alone was already worth that.

I feel really proud that I didn't get that reference...

No reference there. Kyle Holdwick, the dev who appears in the Kickstarter video just has a haircut similar to Bieber.

Sweet teaser video. I want it already, and upvoted it on Greenlight.

That tears it then, I'm changing my Greenlight vote to no.

1. This has reminded me to download Nitronic Rush. Giving it a go now.
2. That interface is super slick and...I'm not entirely sure why it hasn't been done before.
1a. If I like NR (I don't know why I wouldn't), I'll have to invest. Gosh, earlier today I backed Star Citizen, now maybe this? I'm getting sucked in.

...3. That first guy they get to talk? SCRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPT!

I hate the I'm-so-hipster guy at the video with all my guts, but the game looks god damn sweet. Upvoted, considering backing. This could be a riot in MP.

There is a new gameplay video released. It's mostly an extended version of the Kickstarter campaign, without all the fluff and with a different soundtrack. That UI is looking great, it reminds me of Dead Space.

Those tracks look way less claustrophobic than Nitronic Rush, which was my biggest problem with it.

lol, the 10,000 dollar reward is pretty cool: A full tilt Distance arcade machine.
