12:05 PM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story
Telefragged spoke with the team behind Crazy Car Championship, the first title forthcoming from cross-platform developer Synaptic Soup. The game will be powered by their own custom build multi-platform engine, Cipher. As previously mentioned in our news, Synaptic is very capable of bringing CCC to Mac, but the decision will remain in the hands of the publisher. Here's an excerpt from the interview:
To what extent can players modify their vehicles, and what kind of settings will be available for modification? How are the modifications earned, are they pickups on the track, bought through race winnings, etc. How many variations will be available?This game is closer to completion than you might think, but there are still many details to be revealed. For more details on the Cipher engine, be sure and read out interview with Synaptic Soup staff.

KW: Each character will come with their own main fuselage section which contributes to the overall handling of the car, then the player can use money from winnings to upgrade different wheels, thrusters, engines, spoilers and even change the chassis. These different components affect things like the top speed, acceleration and resistance to damage. We’re not planning on going into too much detail where there are hundreds of variables to tweak on the car, CCC is going to be much more of a pick up and play arcade racing game. Although with the number of versions of each of the components there are still a good few thousand combinations.
