Supermono Studios is proving that its willing to go back to the drawing board with its open-world-meets-LittleBigPlanet racing game, Forever Drive [Free]. Under advisement from fans, the studio has released a free update to the game that demonstrates dramatic refinements and tweaks to the core action and building models. The game had been under some… fire from fans who believed its free-to-play business model was proving too restrictive.
The biggest change? Users can now earn more credits by racing. Before, it appeared that the only way to obtain the game’s currency was to purchase them. Also, this update gives users five free track slots and the ability to edit their own tracks without the need to purchase more slots. New monorail scenery and bad track reporting functionality are in this update, too.
We’ve been pretty high on Forever Drive for a while now, but we’re stoked to see creator Supermono flatten out some of the hillier spots in an otherwise cool title. This update is teasing “brand new modes" so look out for more in the near future.
