Thumbs up Lotus series fans! ya gotta try Amiga Racer for OS4.1, MorphOS or Linux

guys was chatting with the developer and shockingly only 2 americans and one canadian have registered for this NG Lotus style game :-?

The game is in constantly updated and if you like the oriignal Lotus series of games then I guarantee you'll love this game on your NG Amiga or Linux!

download it at AmigaTec's homepage and if you like it consider making a doantion to get your custom key that will let you create your own tracks so people all over the world can play them! Also in the works is the ability tom play online with other users which is uber cool :-D

Update:
- there are many many registered users from all over the world with the exception of US & Canada so that's why I'm pushing for users on the other side of the pond :-)

- AmigaRacer is available on AmigaOS4.1, MorphOS, Windows, Linux & Raspberry Pi

Heh, I didn't know it can be registered I did try the first early version, and since then I've just followed the development little from the forum comments and waited it to mature. Should try sometime again where it has actually got. But I'll probably register it when it's announced to be ready or so... but I just don't have time to betatest some game from all the other stuff.

Is it surprising no one seems to have registered, how many people actually run OS4.1 as their main system when compared to A500/A1200 etc?

If it was made for classic Amigas, might have more interest! Their website needs updating too, clicked on the 'Read More' for Amiga Racer and got a page with an image that looks more akin to COD/Battlefield than Amiga Racer and nothing about the game!!

what kind of hardware?? it runs on Linux, Windows and even Raspberry Pi!

So if you have an aversion to AmigaOS4.1 or MorphOS there are options that mostly everyone can use (unless you're an Apple user then sorry)

well you're entitled to your opinion. I own and use my A1000, A1200, A4000, AmigaOne X1000 and I use my all time favourite OS on them so they're all Amiga to me

I don't really understand why Akira is even reading this thread, let alone replying.

Because I am bored. Is that a good answer?
(also because I was interested on this game at some point)

No. I just don't like its look, the way it moves, wrong angles, objects around the track... technically even Power Drift looks better for me. Sorry.

And I love Lotus series.
