RC MANIAX: ROCK ’N RUMBLE
In the 90s, console racing games for the Super Nintendo and SEGA Mega Drive were all the rage. Titles like Rock ’n Roll Racing, Micro Machines, and Super Off Road became highly popular, sold millions, and left an unforgettable cultural mark in the process.
We are not ready to reveal details from our upcoming racer, which some might dub a spiritual sequel to one of the best top-down console racers ever produced, but rest assured we remember the best micro racers of the 1990s — with much revere.
In early 1948, a group of US Air Force officers was working on a secret research project in the California desert codenamed MX981. The purpose of MX981 was to test how extreme gravitational forces from fast-moving fighter jets would impact the human body.
Aviation was still pretty new; in fact, the US Air Force had only been created about six months prior, and the Defense Department wanted to find out just how much gravitational force fighter pilots were able to withstand. Consequently, MX981 was instructed to find out for sure — regardless of human life.
