CodeBlender Seeking Funding For Rally Shift Extreme
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

CodeBlender Software recently emailed IMG with news about its Kickstarter funding campaign for Rally Shift Extreme. Inspired by world rally championship races the game, if funded, will feature real world locations, a variety of driving modes, and the ability to create user mods.

Experience the thrill of driving some of the most advanced rally cars in the world! To become the best will not only require a combination of tactics, perseverance and intelligence but also a good amount of aggression and risk taking. Rally Shift Extreme will challenge and amaze all fans of racing and motor sport games.

Rally Shift Extreme will be available for Mac OS X and Windows. We might also make a Linux version if there's enough support and demand.

Rally Shift Extreme is a racing game inspired by rally racing competitions held in many countries throughout the year. It will feature locations and scenery inspired by real world rally racing locations like France, Germany, Finland and Australia.

The game will feature several different types of gameplay and driving modes. Each offering its own set of challenges and fun depending on what you are in the mood for. One feature in particular that many players liked in the first Rally Shift game was the ability to drive almost everywhere. Players were not confined to just a predefined rally course and we want to bring this ability into Rally Shift Extreme also.

The game will include driving modes such as:

Free Drive

In Free Driving mode you pick a map and then you drive around at your own pace. No racing the clock, no pressure.


You can drive the various rally courses you will compete on but without the pressure of beating the clock.

Time Trial

The Time Trial mode is where you can compete with yourself, where itís you against the clock.


The Rally mode is where itís starting to get more challenging. Even though itís just a single rally with a number of races, this is where you get to experience racing in a real competition.


This is it! This is what you have been dreaming about since day one. To actually drive and compete in the Rally Championship!

User Mods

Being able to add user content to a game is always fun for players so we want to support this in Rally Shift Extreme. We have not yet decided exactly what parts will allow for user mods because it partly depends on what you, the player, wants. So we hope you will join our forum (for certain reward tiers) and let us know what you want to see in the game.

CodeBlender is hoping to get $70,000 before the Kickstarter ends on May 8. Head over to the page below for more.
