Dreamcatcher FUELs Up
11:05 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
DreamCatcher Games have announced they will be publishing the hovercraft racing game FUEL, under development by the Canada-based Firetoad Software. This is an interesting development from DreamCatcher, who is most known for their line of 2D adventure titles for the Mac and PC. FUEL is a hybrid racing/action title which utilizes many of the latest graphic features on powerful cards like the GeForce 3, and has in fact been used as a demo title for those special effects.
The DreamCatcher PR notes the game will be out in the fall of 2002 for PC and console, though it's not more specific than that. With DreamCatcher's history of Mac support in the past and Firetoad's interest in OS X, we're sure a Mac OS X version of the game will be revealed at a later point. Here's a clip:
"Dreamcatcher's ability to bring innovative titles to market has fueled their growth into the entertainment software market," stated Sanford Russell, director of developer marketing at NVIDIA. "With DreamCatcher's acquisition of Firetoad's Fuel, which combines NVIDIA's Shader technology with incredible art and game play, DreamCatcher is able to expand its compelling product line for both the PC and console market."For more information on FUEL, check out IMG's recent feature on the title and the company's web site.

"DreamCatcher is looking forward to working with such a talented and creative team of developers," said Richard Wah Kan, CEO of DreamCatcher Interactive. "We are confident that Fuel's rip-roaring gameplay and cutting-edge graphics will be a hit on any platform, PC or console."
Fuel will round out DreamCatcher's 2002 lineup, bringing gamers a unique, exciting racing experience. Facing-off against Fuel's crafty AI, or other players via the Internet or LAN, racing-game fans will get to tear up the track with more than five different vehicles in every environment and terrain imaginable.
