Thanks to the folks who forwarded me this link (Blues), it's cheered me right up. French devs Nadeo have announced a true sequel to Trackmania at the Paris Games Festival, and you can see it (shakily) in action below. The video shows off the track editor and a load of shiny, shiny cars in action. It doesn't look like Trackmania 2 will lose anything of the mad verve of the original - insane toy-car physics are still in evidence - when it is release next year. We'll bring you more concrete details on this as soon as we can, natch.
