Hey hogs! It's been a while since our latest front-page post, so I thought I'd give you a little insight into one of the things we've been working on.
Currently, the Hedgewars server hosts a variety of awesome racing maps. But, usually these maps just involve a bare landscape that hogs race across using rope. Tech Racer aims to add an element of variety and excitement to the mix. In this mode you will be able to race around custom maps full of mines, crates and barrels. What's more, areas of the landscape will be fully destructible, meaning you might be required to dig a tunnel, or blow a hole through part of the map to finish it. You can watch a demo of such a map here:
Hopefully this will open up the racing arena to new kinds of gameplay and give non-pro ropers a chance to try their stuff on UFO-based racing maps and the like. Either way, I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun!
