Even though I’m personally not the biggest fan of the racing genre, I know one series that made a mark on people – F-Zero. So when I see there’s a new game coming that’s inspired by the classic racer, I pay attention. The good news is, that game just hit Kickstarter today. Developed by Whatnot Games and featuring the musical talents of Grant Kirkhope, that game is called Star Racer!

If that all wasn’t exciting enough, the game will also feature more ways to deal with the competition than F-Zero did. For those interested, be sure and check out the project on Kickstarter. And stay tuned to HPP for more promising crowdfunding ventures!
