After closing our first round of funding in January of this year, the Black Delta gaming team has grown to 9 full time developers and focused itself on the development of its game, previously known as KartSim. It’s been a massive year for the entire team and it’s now time to reveal what’s been happening behind the scenes as we approach release.
By far the biggest news for the game, is its new name, KartKraft; a name which we feel better represents the on and off track gameplay, alongside the level of race craft required to win in such a cut throat sport.
KartKraft lets players race karts capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds, with triple the cornering forces of a road car.
Featuring laser-scanned circuits from around the world, players can customize their avatar, kart and team with products from FREEM, Alpinestars, CRG, IAME, MIR, Sparco, Arai, Arrow, Monaco and many more.
The industry and most importantly you as our fans, have been patiently waiting for the release of KartKraft. Over the coming months we’ll be releasing our Development Diaries to take you behind the scenes at Black Delta, as we get closer to the game’s scheduled Q4 2015 release on Steam’s Early Access.
Debuting the title at Gamescom this year, KartKraft will be on full display at the world’s largest computer and video game event in Cologne, Germany between the 5th-9th August, 2015. Fans and media will be able to race on a 6-DOF hexapod motion simulator with the Oculus Rift, similar to those used by Formula One teams. Airfreighted from Australia specifically for the Gamescom event, the simulator lets players feel every bump and vibration as the tyres grip, slide and bounce over the laser-scanned circuit.
KartKraft will be located at Stand A30 in Hall 10.1. If you wish to find out more or set-up a meeting with us at Gamescom, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all again for the support of KartKraft; stay tuned for more news to follow.
