Invictus is a highly underrated game development studio. They’ve unfortunately been mired in a lot of behind-the-scenes controversy due to shady publisher deals and a lot of licensing issues that have either stripped away their hard work from under their hands or put them in a financial bind. Well, the developers behind the really awesome and highly underrated Project Torque and Heat Online is taking their destiny and putting it into a chassis that they designed themselves called Street Tuning Evolution.
The game is an independently designed title that’s currently over on IndieGoGo seeking $100,000. It’s a hefty price without a lot of media support behind it, but oh man is it a sleek looking project based on the demo video Invictus released. If you’re a fan of movies like Need for Speed or the Fast & The Furious, this is definitely a game you’re probably going to fall in love with. Car porn galore. Check it out below, complete with dubstep.
Street Tuning Evolution is going to be the most interactive and in-depth game for any auto enthusiast. In this PC/MAC game you can visually and mechanically build and tune your cars for open world street racing, drag racing, drifting or even showing off your rides online with friends.
To quote YouTuber seph95…
“On behalf of every car guy that breathes on this earth: THANK YOU. SO. FUCKING. MUCH.
Careful there seph, your comment might be construed as starter-car oppression. I mean, just think about all the little Geo Metros and KiA’s out there that aren’t getting a fair shake because this game will focus on cars people actually care about? That’s not to mention that wolf whistling and looking at a Geo Metro in a buffed up paint job while passing it on the outside lane is considered as motorized road rape. That’s according to the big book of Vehicular Social Justice Warrior Activism 101.
Anyway, Street Tuning Evolution looks like the natural evolution of Project Torque and Need for Speed: Underground II. Both games zapped a heck of a lot of time, especially when it came to tuning and swapping parts and paint jobs… oh man, I could spend hours on a paint job.
If you’re looking for a good tuner game where you can race opponents online, auction cars and tweak your rides to the perfect rubber-burning purr – and if you’re tired of all the cash shop mechanics that hampered and pulled down the quality of Need for Speed World – you can donate to the Street Tuning Evolution cause by paying a kind visit to the official IndieGoGo page. Hopefully Invictus gets their due this time because they’re a talented team that deserves a decent break.
