Skidmarks 20th Anniversary edition

Chris Blackbourn (formerly of Acid and Bioware) was at the Auckland Game Developer's meetup tonight showing the work in progress version of Skidmarks 20th Anniversary Edition.

(Apologies for the bad quality photo)


Car physics feel just like they did, currently the background is still pre-rendered but the cars are rendered in real time. He had dozens of AI cars racing around at the same time and like the original it looks like it'll be geared for very social play - joypads, keyboards and even smart phones were all used as controllers.

I don't know any more about it at this stage sorry, hadn't seen it before tonight!

Great ! I had so much fun with this game, countless hours.... My guess is PC, but hey, this is normal nowadays, i bet the slowest PC could play this without problems.

The whole track on one screen? Reminds me more to Super Sprint this way, tbh.

I think he's intending to release it cross platform but I'd say it's unlikely he'd do an OS 4 release.
(Edit: I'll ask him anyway though!)


@Neil I've posted pretty much everything I know right here but I'd recommend getting in touch with Chris directly regarding the project - http://www.modkagames.com/#contact

I can't believe people wanting an Amiga version or hating on this because there isn't one... Get a reality check, it's 2014, wake up to life.

Skidmarks was a great game and this new version looks really promising, really looking forward to try it out!!

Your right. But this is an amiga forum board so you'd expect comments like that. Devs will make games as to where the marketplace is. And at the moment is all mobile.

I thought it was all Steam these days, and after a month or two it's on to Bundle sites (IE Humble Bundle)
