About Funselektor:
Indie developer Dune “Funselektor” Casu has a thing for racing, as his games suggest. After releasing Absolute Drift in 2015, Dune launched earlier this Fall art of rally, an homage to the golden years of rally and cool vintage cars.
When he’s not programming games (don’t drive when you code!), you can find Dune all across Canada and the US, driving around in his van/office-on-wheels.

Art of Rally is available now, exclusively to PC.

I am glad this lovely little game becomes some attention.
First Time i played i directly thought mod support would be awsome.
Now i think track modding has to come.

The main problem still is - it’s bit to easy

BTW. Fantastic nostalgic soundtrack

Looking forward what the future brings..

try put your name on the top 10 leaderboard !
in solo it's a bit unequal, in maximum difficulty the group 2 can be very challenging, some other series are easier
and if it's raining you can be sure to finish 1st

haven't tried that new patch yet
wish they'd add some way to challenge friends

very fun game otherwise
and a fair amount of content and lifetime for its price!

Art of Rally is the best rally game for me since the times of colin mcrae rally and colin mcrae 2 on playstation. Not everybody will like the graphics they choose, but this game is so much fun to play with a controller. Most of the time i have problems playing racing games again with a controller, but this one is just awesome in every aspect. The music could use a couple of different genres and a custom championship hosted by RD would be really fun.

There is another little indie game i bought at the same time as this gem, its called Lonely Mountains: Downhill, a mountain bike downhill game with same kind of graphics and same kind of fun.

PS: Did somebody else get totally excited for the lancia stratos and barely made the first rally with it? Twitchy little beast.

10:90 in my case. Still it's addictive af

You manage that 10% of the time, WOW.

Honestly I'm pathetic at Art of Rally, and it's older brother Absolute Drift. Actually I'm pathetic at any driving game where I have to drive from "God's view".

That said I think AoR is stunningly beautiful and stunningly well executed. And, as I don't need to be good at a game, or even enjoy it to appreciate something special, I'll keep on supporting the dev by buying any DLC that comes along.

So the game only accepts mods from RD? How does the "exclusive" part work exactly?

Also it would be nice to include a link to the Steam page of the game. You've included the link to RD mod downloads twice and a separate link to the associated subforum, but not for the game itself.
