While futuristic racing is defined by Wipeout for many, for me it’ll always be dear old MegaRace. My futuristic racing comes as a dystopian TV show starring campy presenter Lance Boyle in reels of reels of full-motion video. Pre-rendered 3D! FMV! Prizes! Even the name is exciting: MegaRace! It’s a bit pants, of course. I recognise I have a problem, and that jetcars are probably my salvation.
Quantum Rush first caught our compound eye last year with its pretty jetcars and wacky idea of Kickstarting a free-to-play multiplayer game (which, obviously, failed). Developers GameArt Studio persevered and in July released Quantum Rush Online, and now have followed up with singleplayer-only jetcar combat-o-racer Quantum Rush Champions. It’s on Steam Early Access for £3.99, which is more appealing to my hovercar hankerings than a F2P oddity.
