NASCAR Racing 2003 at Final Candidate
9:42 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Yesterday Aspyr Media announced NASCAR Racing 2003 Season is coming to the Mac, updating the popular racing simulator from last year with new stats and features. Porting house Westlake Interactive is on the job, and they have now revealed the port of the game is already at the Final Candidate stage.
This means the game is feature-complete and should be heading out to stores soon, assuming final approval is given from all parties involved.
Here's the scoop from Westlake's news page:
Hot on the treads of NASCAR® Racing 2002 Season comes NASCAR® Racing 2003 Season for Macintosh. Westlake programmer Duane Johnson headed up the 2002 conversion, and has made amazing progress on the 2003 code. The game is playing well, and all software features are complete and working (thus earning the game its coveted "Final Candidate" status).For those who follow Westlake's game codenames, NASCAR 2003 was previously dubbed "Cellar" on their project list. Here's an explanation for those having a tough time making the connection:
The Mac version of NASCAR® Racing 2003 Season has been in development and under wraps since the 2002 version was released. It's been listed as project "Cellar" on the Westlake Status Page. "Cellar" was an obscure reference to 80's hair band Ratt whose album "Out of the Cellar" contained the mega-hit "Round And Round". NASCAR tracks are ovular for the most part, and the cars drive "round and round".Stay tuned for more information on NASCAR 2003 from IMG very soon. Also have a look at the Aspyr mini-site for details.
