Design it, Drive it : Speedboats (simulator/video game)

Post by Todd Wasson » Sep 24, 2015 9:11 pm

I'm developing a high fidelity speedboat simulator for Windows PCs that lets you design and drive your own speedboats. All the fun, high speed stuff missing from other boat games like chine walking, blowovers, getting it flying nicely on the pad with adjustments to engine trim and jackplate and so forth is all in here. Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets and force feedback steering wheels with foot throttles are supported too.

I'm still working on it and am not sure about a release date yet. Let me know what you guys think! If you have questions, fire away. :)

Thanks, Kevin. There won't be a free public beta, just a handful of hand picked folks testing things. I'll keep you in mind for when the time comes. Do you have a decent gaming rig? Steering wheel by chance? I've got force feedback working now.
