handmark_racer_1 screenHandmark has released a short demo video of their upcoming futuristic racer. The game now has a name: Phaze and has drawn comparisons with Wipeout and F-Zero.

Few other details of the game have been provided, but we're really looking forward to this release. We'll provide more details as soon as they are available. We previously posted screenshots from the game.

    Where are the opponents???

      I guess it's a sneak peak - an early demo...

        They're there. You didn't see them?

    This reminds me of Low Grav Racer except it's less overcast.

      One hopes that there will be significant and additional value added over Low Grav Racer.

        One can only hope...

    framerate looks a bit sluggish, as do the controls. Although at this early stage I'm sure they are working on those.

    Finally you mention F-Zero.

    ... I'll have to check out the Wipeout series though, never even heard of it before... can I get it on Steam or the Wii's virtual console? (Or is there by chance already a Wipeout for the iPhone?)

      I mentioned F-Zero, but this is more Wipeout than F-Zero from what I can tell. :)

      WipeOut was a PlayStation title. It's been mostly PS exclusive. ..WipeOut 1 made it to the PC too, but it didn't use 3d hardware at all, so I'd stick with the PlayStation versions. :)

      ..Oh yeah, there was a version of WipeOut for the Nintendo64. I almost forgot about that one. But there was something about the feel of the digital controls of the PS1 version. I didn't think the N64 version was quite as good. It might be available on the Wii Virtual console though.

      F-Zero was Nintendo's equivalent game on their systems ..but a different-feeling game. Many more ships and wider tracks ..feels more chaotic. WipeOut was more about being at one with the curves of the track. :)

      As for playing them on the PC, I found a good PSX emulator and disc-images of WipeOut were the way to do it. (I got the original CD's ..but for some reason they ran much better under emulation when I ripped them to .bin and .cue files. ..and a .sub file in the case of WipeOut3, which had particularly funky protection.) ..Can't remember if WipeOut64 played well on the Project64 N64 emulator.

    I dunno, but it looks kinda slow to me except for the boosts... was hoping for something faster and crazier like the zone mode in wipeout
