    Hello,
    I'm a developer at Bugbear and saw there was several news items at racedepartment.com about our next game. To summarize, we are making a full contact racing and destruction derby game with cool crashes and physics.

    I wanted to drop by and say that we are now on kickstarter as we want to make this game as an indie, without a publisher - help us reach our goal and get the game cheap! Check out the KS page for videos etc, but don't hesitate to ask here if you have questions, I'll be around.

    What is the number of maximum cars can compete at the same time on track? I believe for a decent Destruction Derby, we need a lot just like the good old Destruction Derby game we had:

    There are currently 12 cars which seems to offer quite nice gameplay while not being too demanding on the processing side.

    Nice, looks quite decent driving-wise. It "feels" a bit light though ? Hard to say... The lack of braking is interesting :D

    Just wondering, will you guys implement an actual transmission behavior ? Clutch, heel and toe, etc... ?

    Thanks for the feedback!
    The hood camera is very much work in progress, and as such doesn't provide very good feedback or "feeling" yet. The driver is actually using brake, it's just bound to the clutch pedal as I hear it's more comfortable to drive that way with that setup. There are currently no plans to expose the clutch to the player.

    I was very excited to hear the upgrade system being inspired by StreetRod! Love that game. Aside from SRod, Street Legal Racing: Redline also had that sort of system.(Gearhead Garage too)
    Pulling the car apart in 2D/3D then taking it out for a drive is awesome. :)

    I wish you all the best with the kickstarter. :thumbsup:

    Not sure if the devs still come around seeing as how that the last post was three months ago but I bought it on Steam and can't wait to see how it turns out...My question is if there are plans to allow multiple controller inputs? I have a DFGT wheel with Fanatec pedals and the game will detect the wheel but not the pedals...I just play with a gamepad for now but the game is good enough to play with a wheel if my pedals worked.

    I haven't really messed around with the game too much because it is very early access but it has alot of potential. Just saw there was an update yesterday so will have to check it out again.

    Please add multiple controller input, I run my Fanatec Clubsport pedals as a standalone unit

    I'm very interested in this game but won't buy it before I know that my G25 + Fanatec Clubsport will work together....

    In all fairness, this really isn't the type of game you necessarily want to play with a wheel...hear me out, in no time flat your hood is crunched up and you can't see anything when in cockpit view. As cool as it is this type of game works best using chase view with a gamepad.

    Multiple controller support is being worked on. The latest patch was a step towards it as the game can now recognize more DirectInput devices than a single wheel.

    Personally I find driving with G27 and force feedback very cool. It's true that the view can get obstructed by the deform in cockpit or hood cam, but you could always switch to the bumper cam at that point, or just live with it for added difficulty. :) (In fact, even the chase cam is surprisingly drivable with a wheel.)

    I got nothing to ask, just wanted to share that I think it's really cool that an actual developer is responding to the community :)!

    Can you add the option to move the seat back in cockpit view..pretty please. Even just until there's a better FOV option later on :)

    How about future DLC ideas's? I have one. A Carmageddon DLC copying the original Carmageddon. That would be ace. There are still loads of Carma fans about.
