Default the makers of Wipeout: Formula Fusion

Former Wipeout Developers Working On Successor, Searching For Publisher. September 24, 2014 . 4:00pm

“It is a ‘Huge’ project and not one that we can do without help—so we are being brave and aiming high,” say R8Games, developers of Formula Fusion.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:



R8Games is an independent developer founded in 2014, and consists of staff members that previously worked on the Wipeout franchise. Recently, the developer revealed their new project—tentatively titled Formula Fusion—which looks very much like a Wipeout-inspired anti-gravity racer. You can view a trailer for it above.

Formula Fusion may not end up being a strictly indie game, though. A member of the R8Games team that goes by the online handle “MrFisty” has been discussing the game on the Wipeout Zone forums, which is one of the most committed Wipeout communities on the net. In a recent post on September 19th, MrFisty revealed that the trailer you see above is more of a visual prototype being used to attract attention from publishers.

“It was actually created (in a few months I might add) to stir things up with publishers, to generate interest and also to provide funding opportunities—in the same way a ‘pilot’ may be used for films with investors,” MrFisty wrote. “It is a ‘Huge’ project and not one that we can do without help—so we are being brave and aiming high.”

He continued, “Things have changed in the games industry now. ‘Very few’ publishers actually believe in AG Racing as a valid next gen genre—so we are trying to convince people of the ‘potential’, and to set up a studio staffed with other ex-Wipeout devs, (with some new Wipeout dev talent of course) to hopefully carry the torch again. But this time being much more open with the community.”

Music for Fomula Fusion is being composed by Dub Fx, a band based in Melbourne.

Formula Fusion, the upcoming futuristic racer being created by a team of former Wipeout developers, will feature graphic design by The Designers Republic, a graphic design studio that helped set the tone and aesthetic of the Wipeout games during the franchise’s infancy back in the PSOne days.

Developer R8 Games say that The Designers Republic will “work side by side with the developers to promote and establish the visual style design aspects for the game”.

“I always said we’d never do another Wipeout. After Wip3out, the third instalment, with the original team dispersing if not already long gone, the Idea was degenerating into a marketing led franchise—from our perspective—an ever decreasing circle of senseless reiteration cranked out for cash,” says Ian Anderson, founder of The Designers Republic.

He continued, “The difference for us with Formula Fusion is the return to values behind the game—the desire to make it, and the community aspect—the desire to not only play it, but to contribute to creating it.”

Formula Fusion, which is currently in development for PC, will supposedly introduce a number of enhancements over the Wipeout series, including craft and technology customization and a track editor. At the moment, the game is still in pre-production and will be targeted at PC, with console versions to follow later.

Formula Fusion is planned for Steam Early Access release in June 2015, with the full version of the game scheduled for a Q2 2016 release.
