Every so often I sit down and create an image for a hot rodding game IP I've been tossing around as a pet project for several years now. Pretty much a pipe dream, but hey, it's nice to dream sometimes.
Also every so often, someone tries to make a game along these lines. Those games are universally either low quality, or anachronistic/have no real sense of accuracy or history. I guess I can still hope
I just today noticed a game called "Motorama" that is clearly gunning for a lot of the things I would want to see in such a game, but the game seems to be severely lacking in the actual gameplay department, and customization seems pretty shallow. Nice style, though...funny how their UI ended up looking quite similar to the mockups I've been making over the last couple years. Same influences and inspiration, I guess: Street Rod, Mafia, Midnight Club...
