Stir Up Major Mischief in Wreckfest Devs' Stuntfest
Mad stuntz'em up
Anything is possible in Wreckfest developers Bugbear Entertainment's latest, Stuntfest [official site]. Its main purpose is to build things so you can blow them up. It is an excellent opportunity to observe the ways your car and the scrap metal creations you build can implode, explode, topple, or even sail into the sun. Who knows? While Stuntfest holds to the law of physics pretty faithfully, Bugbear notes that you'll have the option to tweak these laws to choreograph impossible scenarios.
Ultimately Stuntfest is a sort of grand sandbox level editor. You can stew up stunt levels for your own entertainment, share them with friends and drive each other insane, or even make some sort of wacky machinima. The sky is the limit.
Stuntfest gives you a huge palette of props, characters, and vehicles to flesh out your levels, including the typical track pieces and loop de loops, but if you really want to spice things up, why not throw in a giant toilet or maybe a blender? As we saw in the teaser, the game is largely played from a stunt car, but there's diversity in that area as well, letting you experiment with a hot rod, a grocery cart, or even a mobility scooter.
Bugbear anticipates that Stuntfest will land on early access in September or October this year, before getting a full release in 2017.
