Table Top Racing: World Tour will re-invent the Table Top Racing franchise taking full advantage of the latest hardware and software technologies. Playrise will utilise the Unity 5 Engine to take gameplay, physics and graphics to the next level. Racing fans can expect a radical extension to the humour and frenetic gameplay that made the first Table Top Racing so popular, plus a whole new world of multi-player madness, table-top race tracks, super-cool micro-cars, secret shortcuts and of course, incredible new power-ups!
One of the team’s main ambitions is to bring back 'real social gaming' with 4 player split-screen as well as network multiplayer gaming. The team know from first-hand experience, there's nothing better than gaming with friends you're sat right next to! There’s going to be plenty of witty banter, dead-arms and hopefully not so many insults about your parentage!
