Funselektor Labs, the indie developer behind 2015’s Absolute Drift, recently released a new gameplay trailer for their hypnotizing Art of Rally follow-up. In development since 2017, the game will feature over 30 iconic Group B and Group S rally cars from the 60s, 70s, 80s. Players will be able to tear these classics through 50 beautifully crafted rally stages in countries such as Finland, Sardinia, Norway, Japan and Germany.
The game’s creator even went to DirtFish rally school, to inform the physics and handling mechanics for Art Of Racing, which were completely overhauled from its predecessor. The physics are placed front and center via the distinctive bird’s eye view, meant to take the memorization of the track out of the equation.
The original electronic soundtrack, of top importance to all racing games, comes courtesy of artist Tatreal, and will surely to lull players into the early hours of the morning. Between matches, you will be able to repair the damage your vehicles have undertaken, as well as check the leaderboards for the time-based community challenges.
If anything can be said from the gameplay trailer, the stunning retro maps and graphics are certain to make an impression. Of course, one could look at Absolute Drift’s 9/10 score on Steam, and come away eagerly awaiting the indie game’s TBD 2020 release.
