Original Fire Games bring the successor to Circuit Superstars to the grid: Karting Superstars sees its Early Acces release on Steam.
With Karting Superstars, Original Fire Games deliver their second effort following the success of their stylized top-down racer. The Vancouver-based studio takes it back to the roots of many racing careers with Karting Superstars. However, the plans regarding the games’ release strategy have changed a bit.
Initially, OFG did not want to go down the Early Access release route, as siblings Carolina, Alberto and Carlos Mastretta outlined in our recent interview. Studio Lead Carolina Mastretta explains: “We decided to release the game in Early Access to work with our community to make Karting Superstars the best it can be as we also craft more content for it, from tracks to features like Spectator Mode.“
Karting Superstars’ Early Access release version features several track known from Circuit Superstars, but also new entries, all with multiple layouts. With more content, game modes and functions yet to come, the Early Access version’s price is lower than that of the eventual full version. OFG plans the Early Access period to last for three to six months.
Karting Superstars Track List
- Centrifuge (+Club layout)
- Copperwood (+Club layout)
- Hidden Lake
- Maple Ridge
- Sugar Hill
All layouts also feature a reverse version.
During this time, the studio aims to add more circuits, kart customizations, the aforementioned Spectator feature, and strategy mechanics. Further features that have not yet been announced are also in the works. Meanwhile, a demo version is also available via the game’s Steam page.
