nVidia Features Crazy Car Championship
8:40 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

GeForce maker nVidia has posted a small feature on their website showcasing Crazy Car Championship, currently in development by Synaptic Soup, a game that has players racing around in radically designed hybrid cars in a multitude of environments.

As mentioned in past articles, CCC is the first game to use Synaptic's impressive looking Cipher engine, which has the notable feature of being able to compile on several platforms (including the Mac). It also takes full advantage of the GeForce 3 (thus nVidia's interest in it) and also enables "loads of extra visual effects that simply would not have been possible before the GeForce3," according to Kevin Strange of nVidia.

The feature includes a downloadable AVI movie of CCC in action, weighing in at 7820k, as well as 6 screenshots.

A Mac version of CCC has yet to be announced, but with the cross-platform capabilities of the Cipher engine, hopefully Mac users will hear about one soon.
