I Like Dying In My Car: Darkwind

Darkwind is an indie-MMO thing I've been meaning to look at which I'm just going to post (Jim tried, but the login system was failing then - seems to be okay now). Hail Shaun, who's been pretty insistent in shouting about it. It's basically a turn-based vehicular game. Think Car Wars or - if you're terminally games-workshoppy - Dark Future. Or, if you're Shaun: "Think of the tabletop game Car Wars having sex with EVE Online, then doing a threesome with Autoduel and Auto Assault, and finally making out with Football Manager". Crikey, Shaun. Why don't you just make out with it with tongues and everything? I'll investigate when my schedule opens up a little, but until then, here's some footage...

Firstly, the trailer...

Secondly, the a fan made explanation of the game...

Shaun's also quoted over at TIGSource. It's abstractly free to play, but buying a sub lets you do a lot more on the customising cars side, as well as owning facilities and similar. You can get your free account by a-clicking here.
