StuntCar Racer Pro canned

The legendary game StuntCar Racer popped into my skull for a nanosecond and I instantly remembered Geoff was making a remake for PC and consoles - called StuntCar Racer Pro.

Well, it's been canned. What a shame. Damn, that's annoying; I think it would have been an IDEAL multiplayer game for the handheld PSP.

Glad to see Archer Maclean is still active though (with Mercury for PSP) ... waiting for a super-duper Elite version from David Braben *hoping*

Is there not already a game for some odd handheld console thats called "Stunt Car Racer"? Or is it maybe not related to Geoff's SCR?

Had been wondering about this one, thats a real shame-the game certainly had potential on the modern formats. Sadly,it tends to be more & more that unless you have a modern "franchise" title to make a sequel from, you're unlikely to get sufficient publisher support. Sign of the times,unfortunately.

It's kinda strange, his team (Simergy) have produced nothing since November 2002, that's a LONG time.

One cancelled project GP4 for the X-box.

Hope he's alright.

Fear not...

A game made for the PC a couple of years ago, called TrackMania, is possibly as good a sequal to SCR as one could have hoped. It includes a track editor and 3 different environments, worth checking out if you'd like to play a moden day SCR.

(Dont confuse this with TrackMania Sunrise which is the 2nd game in the TrackMania series. In my opinion the original TrackMania is better and more relatable to SCR).
