Vigor Roads takes the wheel of the apocalypse

    
19

When will the apocalypse get here already so that all of the really cool stuff can start happening? Mutants, rampant looting, cannibal games, and armored death cars all seem like a glorious dream that only New Jersey residents get to live. For those seeking Mad Max-style road rage in their MMOs, there might be a new game coming along to bring high-octane action to the wasteland: Vigor Roads.

Developer NeuronHaze, the makers of the upcoming Project Genom, have launched a small Kickstarter campaign to raise $25,000 to make the basic edition of Vigor Roads. This game has players driving “battle cars” around a broken-down world, competing and cooperating in several different modes. While this initial version is quite limited, stretch goals include an open world map and support for other platforms (including VR).

If the campaign picks up an incredible amount of steam, it could even trigger the Dog milestone at $1M (“We’ll add a dog called Chris Robinson in a spacesuit which will live in your garage.”) and the Real Car stretch goal at $1.5M (“We’ll make a real car in Vigor Roads style and you could ride it with a professional driver.”).

Hey, if you’re missing Auto Assault, this might be the next best thing. Check out the Vigor Roads trailer after the break!

Thanks Shlag for reminding me of the game with a full featured “truck nuts” car customization…

The funny thing is the short story all these games are based on wasn’t a post apocalyptic world.

Oleg Chebeneev I take it you’re not from the US? I’m afraid balls hanging from the hitch of pick up’s is a thing here, more so in some areas than others.

I was a huge fan of Interstate 76 so this is an area of interest for me but “First Created, One Backed” is not a positive line item. Have to think about this one.

O.K. so I definitely fall into the “For those seeking Mad Max-style road rage in their MMOs” category – but after reading the kickstarter, I’m not sure this is actually a game aiming to do provide things

Oleg Chebeneev Also, I don’t think the person who modeled that ass has ever seen leather pants or a woman before. Just pictures.

saxxon68 Aye. This is one setting that just feels so off with having ‘game modes’.
