Kickstarter is one of the most exciting developments in the gaming industry in a while. Direct funding of developer projects by fans cuts out the middle man of publishers, and lets ideas that never would have seen the light of day become reality - ideas that would never have met the requirements of big companies that only fund "a hundred million dollar" projects.
The 90's Arcade Racer is one of those projects. It's a labor of love by Antonis Pelekanos, a throwback to high octane, neon, 90s arcade racing games, such as Sega's Daytona USA, Midway's Cruisin' USA, or Atari's San Francisco Rush. Word has come down that The 90's Arcade Racer will grace the Nintendo Wii U eShop. The project is exciting for any racing fan, so take a look at the gameplay video and the news on the Kickstarter website!
