Well, this is indeed a nice blast from the past I wasn’t expecting to see this evening!
It’s only tangentially mentioned on the third page, but this is a game from 00’s indie darling ABA Games/Kenta Cho, and at the time convinced college-age me that languages outside of C or C++ were just as capable of making fast graphic games.
However this was right around the big split between D1/Phobos and D2/Tango, so I never really pursued it any further.
Wow that is a fun game. Nice clean port too. Well done! I’m a sucker for those sorts of STUN runner style racers.
Holy heck I love it. Shades of Tempest 2000, except it actually runs on hardware you own.
