    Real racing was supposed to be this super sick racing game, but where is it at? They said at firemint it would be out in the end of 08, but it's not out.

    No, it wasn't... If you go to www.firemint.com, you'll see that the game is still under development for both iPhone and N-Gage... Apparently they haven't found a publisher yet :/

    Maybe they should talk with Neil Young at Ngmoco and see if they would publish the game for them...

    When they say HD graphics, do they just mean high-res/quality?

    Looks interesting, a bit different to others on iphone as it appears to be a track racer rather than city streets. But then again, vid seems to suggest this to be another arcade style racer. The online play and Youtube vids sound interesting though.

    Publishing Firemint Real Racing

    We had PLENTY of interest from publishers ;) But in the end we decided to self-publish, we think this is going to be the most awesome game and we wanted to retain complete control over where we take it. We'll be releasing more details soon, so check this page:

    Yes welcome, real racing is one of the first iphone games I came across and it instantly sold me on buying a ipod touch, and i'm glad I did.

    Don't know if you already have seen it, but just received some update with new youtube video link from Firemint, we have a detailled news on our Blog (but only in German). So anywhere, here is the link to the new video with some explanation and details from the game itself, like fully animated cockpit view, ai of other drivers, steering, car classes and much more.

    Because the game is still in development, there are still a bunch of details we haven't announced yet, and price is one of them - the release date is another :) We are going to release more information soon so stay tuned!

    I remember that back in '08, you guys said that people would be able to upload replays and lap times to facebook etc... Is that feature still planned and have you expanded it?

    In the video there, you look like you're going quite slow. Do you have a sense of speed when driving?
