Trackmania 2 Lagoon roars out

Ah, a tropical getaway! Sun, sand, surf, and speeding through loop-de-loops into corkscrews at 300mph until you sick up your sangria. That's the fun offered by Trackmania 2 Lagoon [official site], which launched today. The latest in Nadeo's wonderfully silly racing series takes the tropical environment from 2016's Trackmania Turbo and whacks it into the interconnected ecosystem of Trackmania 2, bringing new modes and whatnot…

Trackmania 2’s Press Forward Maps Are Amazing

One of my favourite niches among level design communities are creations which are designed to pinball players through their geometry without requiring your control. Levels for the platformer N, for example, which allow you to sit back and marvel at their daredevil complexity, or race tracks for Trackmania [official site] in which you need to do nothing but push forward. An example of the latter…

Trackmania 2, Now With More Toilets

I can't say I stuck with Trackmania 2: Canyon because I, uh, didn't stick with Trackmania 2: Canyon. It was fine! But it was also basically doing the same thing as I've been doing in a half-decade of preceding Trackmania games, except with prettier graphics, no choice of cars and a mad menu system. Others have stuck with it, however, and have been making the…

Looping The Loop: A Chat(mania) With Nadeo

With Trackmania having made its triumphantly quirky return with Canyon, we thought it might be opportune to have a little chat with Nadeo about what they are up to. We spoke to Edouard Beauchemin, who talked about the inexhaustibility of the game, Nadeo's plans for the near future, and the power that their games put into the hands of players.

Impressions: Trackmania 2

I've spent three or four hours playing Nadeo's latest slice of science-defying racing absurdity - nowhere near enough to tell you conclusively Wot I Think, but plenty to witter about what I'm starting to think. If there's one factor that's bedevilled the ever-joyous Trackmania series, it's that naming conventions and cross-pollinated content has made it ever harder to work out exactly which one's which. While…

Cars Take Off: Trackmania 2 Canyon Out

Trackmania 2 Canyon is available right now as a digital purchase straight from its very own official website. It’s the game with an obscene amount of player-controlled cars racing around thousands upon thousands of physically impossible tracks. The game uses Nadeo’s own ManiaPlanet system for updates and downloads, which is why it’s only available direct from the website. That may change but don’t count on…

Trackmania 2’s “Educational” Trailer

What's educational about it? Well, it teaches you about the game, I suppose. It shows you how there's a bunch of customisation options, and how the game's editor allows you to build elaborate race course for the cars wot go fast. Most of all though, it teaches that Trackmania is basically crazy. And that is why we love it. (It's the bit at 1:35 which…

Trackmania 2: The First Footage

Cars. Cars wot go fast. That's what we need, in this week of shooting and portal-making and dragon-slaying. The Trackmania series remains glorious, giddy and essential, and the full-on sequel's been far too long coming. The information's being drip-fed out, annoyingly -so far only one screenshot, but now we get a little look-see at how this grand old racing fantasy looks in motion...
